According to insiders, Cara Delevingne is fast becoming the new Kate Moss. With an infectious, bubbly personality and a real heart for the fashion industry, Delevingne is gaining supporters at a rapid rate.Born in London in 1992, Cara Delevigne has pedigree. Her grandfather, Sir Jocelyn Stevens, is former Chief Executive of English Heritage and former Managing Director of the London Evening Standard and Daily Express newspapers. As a youngster, Cara Delevingne describes herself as a ‘tomboy’ who loved playing football. On her aunt’s wedding day, the young Cara refused to walk down the aisle in her bridesmaid’s dress unless she was allowed to wear her football shorts under it.

Cara Delevingne began her modelling career as a young girl, appearing in adverts for Cadbury chocolate. Since then, her work in advertising has gone from strength to strength with commissions from brands including H&M, Dominic Jones Jewellery, Blumarine and Zara.

As the ‘star face’ of the autumn/winter 2012/13 season, according to Vogue, Cara Delevingne is constantly in demand to model creations from the top designers and houses, including Moschino, Jason Wu, Oscar de la Renta and Fendi.

And it is her face which has given Cara Delevingne some of her best work. Her dark bushy eyebrows are her trademark feature. Being a ‘face’ is the dream of many a model and Delevingne has lived that dream as the ‘face’ of Chanel, DKNY and, at the time of writing, Burberry, in its Beauty campaign. What better job for a rising British model than to be the face of an ‘A list’ British company? It’s not the first time she’s worked for the company. In its spring/summer 2012 campaign Delevingne was photographed alongside another rising British star, actor Eddie Redmayne.

It’s not only the catwalk which has been graced by Cara Delevingne. She’s also appeared on the covers of several influential magazines including Vogue, Russh and Jalouse.

Acting has always fascinated Cara Delevingne so she was, understandably, thrilled when she landed the part of Princess Sorokina in director Joe Wright’s adaptation of Tolstoy’s ‘Anna Karenina’. She was involved in some steamy scenes, but Keira Knightley, who played Karenina, was able to give her advice on how to handle the nerves which such scenes can create. Delevingne has said she would like to do more acting and definitely appear in another Joe Wright movie.

There is no doubt that Cara Delevingne’s star is in the ascendancy, but it is still a long way from its zenith. Long may it rise.
