Cara Delevingne is the most famous model in the world right now. She is only 22 and already has incredibly impressive modelling résumé and a list of high profile celebrity pal’s to boot. Not only is she a talented model but she can sing (click here for proof of her angelic voice) she can act and can pull funny faces while still looking flawless. Seriously, is there anything this woman can’t do?!
One of the most interesting thing’s about Cara is her personal style is totally understated and casual, in comparison to the haute couture looks she struts down the runway in. In my opinion, her ‘off study’ style is far more interesting. Cara is young and free, she really doesn’t give a f*ck what anyone thinks about her fashion choices and I love that! She lives life to the fullest.
To get Cara’s ‘off duty’ look, it is best to combine key pieces to create a dressy/casual look that makes you look stylish, while still being comfy and easy to wear. Cara is a huge fan of loose fitting band tee’s and plain vest tops, she usually pairs them with a cool leather jacket or parka jacket, depending on the occasion. She usually wears a funky slogan beanie or cap. If you are on a budget, I find that Primark stock a lot of similar style beanies and hats for affordable prices.
Although Cara is a fashion muse and icon (Mulberry designed a line of handbags in her honor called the Cara Delevingne Collection!) she isn’t afraid to rock high street clothing. She’s often seen wearing clothing and accessories from high street stores. She loves to shop in Topshop & Zara!
Cara’s makeup is usually kept very low key and natural, especially when is is going on casting calls. She wears nude colours to suit her beautifully bronzed skin tone. She usually wears copper or gold coloured eye shadows to really make her big blue eyes pop! Mascara is also very important when recreating Cara’s look, she uses lashings of black mascara to give her that doe-eyed look.
On special occasions she has been known to wear a bold, sultry pout. She loves to wear deep red lipstick to red carpet events but as she like to play up her eyes, she usually wears a nude lip colour. Ohhh and let’s not forget the single most important aspect to Cara’s look, her world famous eyebrows! She brought bushy back and made everyone put away their trusty tweezers.
To get Cara’s famous bushy brow look, create some definition and fullness in your brows by using an eyebrow palette and brush to fill in any gaps. You can find several makeup tutorials online that show you how to re-create Cara’s famous brows but be warned, this look isn’t for everyone!
Cara is a huge fan of tattoos. One of her most famous tattoo’s is the Lion she had tattooed onto her finger, but of course not everyone is brave enough to go under the needle! To re-create Cara’s look you can buy some fantastic temporary tattoos online, like this selection on Ebay . Temporary tattoo’s were really on trend last summer and I am pretty sure they will be just as big this year. They are a great way to have fun with fashion without the commitment (or pain) of a real tattoo.
On or off the runway, Cara Delevingne doesn’t take herself too seriously and that makes her fashion journey incredibly fun to follow. Her goofy personality makes her relatable and her drool worthy wardrobe and impressive entourage of celeb pals makes us all weep with sheer envy!
Cara really is a true style icon and I can’t wait to see more fashion looks from her in the future.
