Just like clothing, in fashion, every model has their season. Over the last two decades we have seen the faces of Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Heidi Klum and Tyra banks grace the catwalks of fashion shows all over the world.
In the last year or two, a new generation of models has begun to replace these household names of fashion. Their look is fresh, current and for now they are holding the title of queens of the run way. Models such as Daphene Groenveld, Liu Wen, Joan Smalls, and Karlie Kloss are faces we are seeing everywhere now, even if you dont know their names, you know their faces. The same is to be said about Cara Delevigne.
Cara is currently the face of Burberry’s beauty campaign and was also the face of their 2012 Spring/Summer campaign. She is also the face of Chanel’s Resort 2013 campaign. She has appeared in adverts for Zara, Chanel, H&M and Dominc Jones Jewelry. This Month, Cara was given her first British Vogue cover and the magazine described her as the face for the Autumn/Winter 2013 season. She has walked the runways for Dolce and Gabbana, Stella McCartney, Jason Wu and Louis Vutton. She was named as one of “Londons 1000 most influential ” in 2011 and is currently ranked number seventeen on Models.com’s top fifty models, just behind Cape Town’s very own, Candice Swannepoel. However, Cara’s biggest accomplishment in her career is being named British model of the year for 2012.
I think Cara Delevigne is one of the most beautiful people to have ever walked the face of the Earth. Her look to me is dynamic and too be completely honest when I first came across a picture of her, I could not understand what the big hype was about. I thought her eyebrows were slightly bushy and i found he to be annoying. But then one day something just clicked and i was completely infatuated with her look and the next thing I know she was everywhere, even some my friends who have no interest in fashion were tweeting “Who is this girl?”
Models.com has said she “is fast becoming a latter day British style goddess” and they couldn’t be more right. Cara’s style is what I would call individualistic and definetely influential. In my previous piece I did on the comeback of nineties fashion trends, I named Cara as one of the forerunners sporting the trend. Recently, Harpars’s Bazaar wrote an article on how Cara has trademarked her name. In the article they called her “the modle of the moment” and stated than in copy righting her name, it allows her to put her name on handbags, perfumes, merchandise and anything else she would want to brand herself with. If Cara ever decides to make her perfume or handbag collection, I’m not ashamed to admit that I’d be first in line to view it and test it as I’m sure purchasing it, would be out the question for this poor media student.
Who knows who I’ll be writing about next , or even next month, But for now the catwalk is in the hands of this British beauty and I couldn’t be happier.
