Vogue Australia has crowned Cara Delevingne “Miss Cool” on its October 2013 cover, and the infamous model does not take the title lightly.
From Tom Ford to Alexander McQueen, Cara dons the best fashion has to offer in the new spread, while discussing just how much respect she has for the publication.
Rita Ora’s BFF also talks about her most memorable shoots, being a part of Anna Karenina, never being in the same city for a whole week, and what modeling means to her.
The young superstar killed the photo shoot and seriously looks like royalty, as a crown compliments her strong features in several shots. Check those out below, in addition to some highlights:
On Her Most Memorable Shoots:
“My first British Vogue cover was a very proud moment – a Vogue cover is a defining moment in the career of any girl, it’s such a respected and iconic fashion title. Alex Shulman and her team have been very supportive to me from the beginning of my career. I’ve been really lucky… not to mention working with Karl and Chanel, Burberry, YSL, Mulberry. I love a challenge in terms of modeling, and working with animals is so much fun. For Mulberry, the owls, and a giant spider for an i-D cover shoot.”
On Having A Very Hectic Schedule:
“I’m always traveling: I can go between New York and London two times a week, and L.A., Paris and Milan. It is crazy. I keep in touch with my family, friends, fans… they make me feel at home wherever I am. I travel with things like my music, a onesie, a favorite Burberry leather jacket – that helps. I usually feel very calm and settled on a plan which is funny.”
On Growing As A Model:
“I had to learn to take direction and interpret a concept. For me, modeling is about becoming a character in the minds of the creative team and being a part of an image. I’m not self-conscious in front of the camera, and I have learnt to trust the teams I work with. On the catwalk, it’s also about direction but it’s more theatrical and you only have one chance to get it right. When I first started, I was more familiar with acting so I paid no attention to the camera and it was more like being let loose on set like an animal!”
On the film Anna Karenina:
“Being a part of a story and the on-set community, becoming another character, the whole process of bringing someone’s script to life and working with a great director and crew – it really thrills me.”
