Cara Delevingne 'is the new face of Topshop'

Cara Delevingne is said to be the new face of Topshop. The model will front the British high street giant's autumn/winter 2014 campaign, according to British Vogue.

Topshop are yet to comment on Cara's new role with the brand, but speculation is already rife that the British beauty will even design her own line with the retailer.

If so, she would be following in the footsteps of friend and supermodel Kate Moss, who has created many hugely successful ranges for Topshop.

Cara has some experience in design – she created a capsule collection for DKNY and a bag line for Mulberry.

London-born Cara has fronted handfuls of high-profile campaigns since she shot to fame just a few years ago.

She has lent her face – and body – to brands including DKNY and Yves Saint Laurent. In September, she is set to star alongside Kate Moss in the new Burberry fragrance advert.

Despite her huge modelling success, Cara is hoping to make the move to acting full-time. We recently got a glimpse of Cara in action with a short clip from new Sky Arts drama Timelessfeatures Cara as Chloe, a young woman who has to look after her great-grandmother when her mother and grandmother go away on holiday .

In the clip, Chloe appears to be waiting for a phone call from a loved one who is away at war.

Fans are used to seeing the beauty dressed up for the catwalk, but in thefresh clip she appears casually dressed down as she gets in character.

The 21-year-old model looks to be a natural in front of the camera, which is good news as reportedly youthful Cara would rather be on screen than the catwalk.

She has already had a small role in the Keira Knightley period drama Anna Karenina and it was recently confirmed that Cara will be joining Dame Judi Dench, Dane DeHaan, Alicia Vikander and Cressida Bonas in Tulip Fever.

Set in the 17th century, the film which will be produced by Oscar-winning producer Harvey Weinstein follows Alicia Vikander's married woman who begins a passionate affair with an artist hired to paint her portrait.
