Everyone knew how she felt about the arena matches, but still she came to my tent after one of my fights, telling me how impressed she was and asked my name. ‘Eloise,’ I told her. ‘Eloise,’ she repeated back, and smiled. ‘Would you care to join me for lunch?’ she asked, and I replied yes, knowing I would join her for anything she asked.
Cara Jocelyn Delevingne is an English fashion model and actress. Delevingne first began modelling at age ten in an editorial shot by Bruce Weber for Vogue Italia alongside model Lady Eloise Anson. She signed with Storm Model Management in 2009 after being spotted by Sarah Doukas, the founder of Storm, who had previously discovered Kate Moss. Delevingne was presented with her first opportunity at paid modelling when she was spotted by Burberry’s Christopher Bailey while working part-time in the office of fashion website ASOS.
Delevingne’s first catwalk appearance was at the February 2011 London Fashion Week, where she displayed the Burberry Prorsum autumn/winter collection. Delevingne began the early 2012 season by walking in the Chanel Haute-Couture spring show. The stage was set up to resemble an aeroplane and the clothes the models wore vaguely alluded to airline flight attendant uniforms. The New York Fashion Week was the first of the big ‘four’ fashion weeks, within which Delevingne walked in nine shows for fashion houses including Jason Wu, Rag & Bone, Thakoon, Donna Karan, Tory Burch, Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera.
Delevingne played her first film role, although a non-speaking part, in the 2012 film adaptation of Anna Karenina, as Princess Sorokina, the marriage interest of Count Vronsky, alongside Keira Knightley. One of her most well known parts to date is the free-spirited Margo Roth Spiegelman in the adaptation of John Green’s novel Paper Towns. The film brought in $12,650,140 on the opening weekend in the US, which placed it 6th at the box office.Of Delevingne’s performance, Justin Chang of Variety called her “the real find of the film”, suggesting that “on the evidence of her work here, this striking actress is here to stay”.
