Quirky and not afraid to show it. Yes, we all know that Cara Delevingne is sort of a big deal. After all, she was the most searched fashion figure on Google last 2013.
The British beauty has strutted down the catwalk for Victoria Secret among other top designers, and has appeared in campaigns for huge brands including Burberry, Chanel, Zara, Yves Saint Laurent and DKNY. The 22-year-old may have kick-started her global success through modelling but there’s far more than meets the eye(brows). Here are ten things that you should know about the queen of funny faces:
1. She started modelling at age 10
Delevingne has lived her life alongside a camera lens. In fact, her very first shoot was for Vogue Italia (no biggie). She was first noticed by Storm Model Management in 2009, the same agency who spotted Kate Moss. And, since then, her career in the fashion world has soared, following her big break in the 2011 Burberry campaign.
2. She’s weird and she knows it
There is no doubt that Cara is popular in social media. She has an attitude to “keep it real,” and tells you to “embrace your weirdness”. The supermodel isn’t afraid to show off her goofy side and that’s one of the reasons why she dominates the world of class and quirkiness.
annoyingly impressively talented
She can sing, play the drums and beatbox. Right when you think you know all about Cara, here she is showing the world that she can do almost anything.
6. She’s a tomboy
She comes across as a typical female model on the outside but, like what your mother always tells you, do not judge a book by its cover. Cara does not abide by the rules of a ‘girly girl’. Her tomboy streak has been proven by her adoration of the gaming world and claiming that she plays Call of Duty, only one of the most kick-ass games out there. Her username is Caradele.
7. Her eyebrows? Beauty icon
Ok, this one is pretty obvious but you should know that her secret is really simple; don’t pluck them. Delevingne follows this up in an interview by saying, “I mean, I do, obviously, a little bit, because otherwise I’d have a monobrow, but it’s just about keeping them wild, keeping them free and woolly.” Or, in other words, #eyebrowgoals
8. She’s good with animals
Delevingne has a pet rabbit called Cecil Bunny Delevingne (@cecildelevingne) and, yes, this cute ball of fur even has her own Instagram account! Cecil has also modeled for Mulberry.
9. She’s a basketball fan
So far, we know that she’s into computer gaming and oh, basketball too! Cara has been spotted watching basketball games in New York, supporting the Knicks with several other celebrities such as Rihanna, Michelle Rodriguez and the Kardashians.
10. She’s gliding into the film industry
Cara is keeping busy with her acting career when she’s not stomping down the runways. This year, she’s starring in the coming-of-age dramedy, Paper Towns, as well as the period drama Tulip Fever and London Fields alongside Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Delevingne will also be appearing in Pan, as a mermaid (reportedly disappointed to find that she won’t be wearing a tail on set).
For all you Cara fans out there, another thing to look forward to is Suicide Squad (2016) as she will be playing the role of Enchantress. Needless to say, Cara Delevingne rocks!
