All of a sudden it seems that Cara Delevingne has become one of the most recognisable faces in fashion. Her elfin looks, statement brows and quirky sense of humour have designers, editors and fashion lovers all over the world falling in love.
A few years back, older sister Poppy was the one turning heads in the fashion circles. Taller, with a more conventional face, and six years Cara’s senior, she was featured in campaigns for many designers such as Burberry, and, as a muse to Marc Jacobs, is a face of Louis Vuitton. However, more recently the younger Delevingne has earned her time in the spotlight and this year certified her meteoric rise by winning Model of the Year Award at the British Fashion Awards. She collected her award in head-to-toe Burberry, flashing her pins in a metallic green mini dress. She has “the diversity and originality that we’ve seen in all the greatest British models,” Caroline Rush, CEO of the British Fashion Council explained. She also praised her “unique sense of style and attitude”. Although the award doesn't come as much of a surprise after the newly crowned Victoria’s Secret Angel dominated a total of 39 runway shows over the Spring 2013 fashion season, as well as scoring campaigns with Chanel and Burberry.
Off the catwalk, the 20-year-old model hangs with her best Friends, Rihanna, Rita Ora and Georgia May Jagger and continues to impresses on the red carpet and London party scene with her own edgy sense of style. She mixes classic designer pieces with her rock-chick attitude to create her own young and stylish look.
It also seems that acting beckons the young star. Cara debuted her acting skills in a small role in the 2012 film Anna Karenina, and hopes to continue acting. She recently tweeted "music and acting are my life!"
So whether it's on the catwalk or on the big screen we'll definitely being seeing much more of Cara Delevingne!
