Following her debut in the Autumn/Winter 2011 catwalk show for Burberry, Cara Delevingne has become one of the most in-demand models in the industry, walking for over 30 designers in the Autumn/Winter 2013 shows and fronting campaigns for luxury labels including Chanel, Fendi, DKNY and Mulberry, as well as being the face of Burberry beauty. Most recently, she was cast as the face of Saint Laurent 's "La Collection de Paris."
In 2012, Delevingne was awarded Model of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards. In March 2013, Delevingne landed her first British Vogue cover, followed swiftly by covers for Vogue Nippon, Vogue China and Vogue Australia.
Famed as much for her modelling as her public persona, Delevingne’s celebrity has followed that of supermodels such as Kate Moss , garnering a dedicated fan following and attention from the mainstream press outside the fashion industry. Through clever use of social media – Delevingne has gathered over 28 million followers on Instagram and more than 5 million followers on Twitter – the young model has built a viable commercial brand around herself, which in turn has helped her secure contracts with labels keen to capitalise on her growing prominence. In February 2013, Delevingne registered a trademark for her name and also established a business name under Cara& Co .
Delevingne first began modelling at age ten in an editorial shot by Bruce Weber for Vogue Italia and in campaigns for Cadbury’s chocolate in Britain, before being signed to Storm Model Management by owner Sarah Doukas . Prior to landing the Burberry campaign, the aspiring model worked on catalogue shoots for British e-commerce site Asos, whilst studying drama at Bedales, an exclusive private school in Hampshire.
Keen to pursue a career in acting, Delevingne began her foray into films with parts in the 2011 production of Anna Karenina alongside Keira Knightley and 2014's The Face of an Angel, before landing one of her first leading roles in the Hollywood adaption of John Green's Paper Towns. In April 2015, Delevingne announced she would be quitting modelling to focus on films and is currently set to star alongside Ben Affleck and Margot Robbie in the upcoming Suicide Squad.
