As the sister of the famous socialite-model Poppy Delivingne, Cara Delivingne managed to start a career and identity of her own in the world of modeling. Who would have thought this English girl would have gone from being a young Cadbury model to being a breakout star, where every designer would want to have her in their show and top photographers desiring to photograph her trademark pissed-off face. Her runway walk rocks every fashion show oozing with her cool and rebellious personality that brought life and character to every clothing element. Born with expressive eyes, she uses this to denote different emotions giving that piercing look on every photo. A quick google on her would give you tons of candid backstage photos that reflect her ability to work her eyes and facial expression.

Being initially represented by Storm London under Sarah Doukas, (who managed the career of Kate Moss), she was introduced to New York under DNA Models, Elite in Paris and Fashion Agency in Milan. In 2012, she left DNA to be represented by Women NY. Her resume involves an endorsement deal with Burberry, Dominic Jones Jewellery, H&M Authentic Collection, Blumarine, Zara, Chanel Resort, DKNY, and just recently with Saint Laurent F/W 2013 campaign. Her print work includes magazine covers and editorials from international fashion bibles like Vogue, ID, and Russh. Aside from modeling, she also has a cameo role in the movie Anna Karenina playing the part of Princess Sorokina. According to some blogs, she was almost close on getting the role of Éponine in the musical movie Les Miserables, but actress Samantha Barks became the final choice for the part. Having this kind of fame and body of work would lead a model like her to appear on various events and party scene. She was spotted with the Umbrella hit singer Rihanna and has dated One Direction member Harry Styles.

It is obvious that good genes runs with Cara; nevertheless, her existence in the fashion industry reminded us that a good personality makes a model complete. In the next few years, we may see her crossover in doing other entertainment-related stuffs, but all we know is, the Brit model is totally unstoppable.

Bless the models!!!

Ben.
