Since she stormed onto the scene in 2011 there's been no stopping British beauty and supermodel Cara Delevingne on her way to stardom as she alters the fashion backdrop forever. Turning just 22 today, the model's career that spans only a few years is, to put us all to shame, ridiculously extensive with a portfolio that most models could only dream of. But not just that, she has all the sartorial wisdom of a seasoned Vogue fashion editor, so it's not just her catwalk looks that demand attention but her stunning red carpet style is always faultless too.
Cara's success comes as no surprise with her beautiful blonde hair, dazzling blue eyes, killer cheekbones and those glossy eyebrows, a look so distinguishable the English rose is instantly recognisable. Her career took off in 2011 after signing with an agency in 2009, modelling for a host of luxury and high-street brands including Chanel, Burberry, H&M and Zara. Her catwalk appearances are extensive and have included Oscar de la Renta, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Stella McCartney, to name but a few! Awarded 'Model of the Year' at the British Fashion Awards in 2012, Cara's success has sky-rocketed to even more epic proportions, she's featured in the 2012 film Anna Karenina
, become a Victoria's Secret model and has just released her own collection of 'Cara Delevingne' handbags with Mulberry.
Not just a pretty face, Cara keeps her fans up-to-date with her Twitter and Instagram accounts, and her ability to relate to her fans through her down-to-earth, likeable personality certainly sets her apart from other celebrities. Her Instagram page has a staggering 6.1 million followers, hardly surprising with the abundance of playful cross-eyed pictures (often featuring her beloved onesie or adorable baby rabbit) expressing her genuine, fun character adding to her charm and making her one of the most highly-demanded and successful models around. Someone that Vogue's editor Alexandra Shulman described as, "one of those girls who combines energy, wit, enthusiasm and the kind of edgy beauty that marks her out from the general pool of beautiful models."
Showing no signs of slowing, the newly announced face of Topshop, and Vogue September cover girl has successfully secured herself a role in the new Peter Pan film as a mermaid, staring alongside Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried. And with plans to pursue a career in music we find ourselves asking, do her talents ever end? If our style file is anything to go by, then they clearly don't...
