Happy birthday Cara Delevingne! As the stunning model turns 22, HELLO! Online takes a look at what the stars have in store for Cara and you...
'Children,' it was said in the old days, 'should be seen and not heard. Few members of the educational establishment would express such a view today - at least not in public. The opinion may be outmoded, but it reflects an awkward fact. Kids look cuter than they actually are. As much as they are loveable, they are irritating, too. The world is full of circumstances (and individuals) like this. You are now looking at a situation that appears highly accessible and acceptable. Just be aware that the reality may be somewhat different.
"I was such a tomboy," says Cara Delevingne. "The first time I was a bridesmaid, to my auntie, I refused to go down the aisle without my football shorts on underneath my dress."
It's fair to say that Cara isn't your typical model. But while she probably didn't grow up dreaming of becoming a catwalk queen, that's exactly what she's become.
The blonde beauty is regularly hailed as the new Kate Moss, and like the Croydon superbabe, Cara's success comes as much from her fun-loving personality as her astonishing looks.
According to Marc Jacobs the blonde is "a silly goose". "She has great energy," says the designer."She turned up to the Vuitton show wearing a zebra outfit from Madagascar, a onesie. She'd been traipsing round Paris all evening in it; you've got to love a girl like that."
"Even if I'm exhausted, I always try to go into a show with a smile on my face," says the lady herself. "If I'm in a bad mood, people are going to act bad. The energy you give off is the energy you receive."
Known for her sharp, angular beauty and those covetable eyebrows, she rose to fame as one of new faces of Burberry, alongside Edie Campbell and Jourdan Dunn. And together the trio have conquered the global fashion landscape.
Born in London on 12 August 1992, she is the granddaughter of Sir Jocelyn Stevens, publisher of Queen magazine and a financier of the Sixties pirate radio station, Radio Caroline, on which the film The Boat that Rocked was based. Her grandmother Janie was a lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret.
The kooky Londoner and her older sisters Chloe and Poppy enjoyed something of gilded upbringing. Her godmother is Joan Collins, while another family friend, Sarah Doukas, has known her since she was five. If the name is familiar that's because Sarah, the MD of London agency Storm Models, discovered Kate and helped launch Cara too. But connections alone can't explain her phenomenal rise.
The supermodel also models for Mulberry, where she has her own handbag collection. Cara was recently unveiled as the new face of Topshop for Autumn/Winter 2014.
