In this post I’m going to talk about one of my idols, Cara DelevingneCara Delevingne is an English fashion model, actress, and singer born on the 12th of August 1992 in London. She is the daughter of Pandora Anne Delevingne and Charles Hamar Delevingne and has two older sisters, Chloe and Poppy Delevingne. Before moving to Hampshire and transferring to Bedales School when she was sixteen, she attended Francis Holland School for Girls in London.
Cara first experienced modelling at the age of ten when she starred in an editorial shot for Vogue Italia alongside model Lady Eloise Anson. However her real career took off in 2009 when she signed with Storm Model Management after being spotted by the founder, who had previously discovered Kate Moss. Her first catwalk appearance was at the 2011 London Fashion Week where she represented the Burberry Prorsum autumn/winter collection. When she turned out to be a natural on the runway she got to walk for high end fashion brands like Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin, Givenchy, Stella McCartney and Fendi. Cara has also featured in a lot of advertising campaigns for various brands such as H&M, Zara, DKNY, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Tom Ford. She also starred on the covers of Vogue UK, USA, China, Portugal, Korea, Japan, Australia and Brazil and many other magazines. Delevingne took part in the Victoria Secret fashion shows in 2012 and 2013 where she prouldy strut over the catwalk. And as if all the above wasn’t a resume to be proud of already, she also won the “Model of the Year” award at the British Fashion Awards in 2015.
However this year Cara revealed that acting, and not modelling, is her true passion. Cara her first role was in the 2012 film adaptation of Anna Karenina where she played alongside Keira Knightley. In December 2014, she starred in Reincarnation, a short film by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel alongside Pharrell Williams and Geraldine Chaplin. Cara also starred in various music videos including “Bad Blood" by Taylor Swift. She is set to feature in six upcoming movies including Suicide Squad, the fantasy movie Pan and an adaptation of John Green’s novel, Paper Towns. I am really looking forward to seeing her shine as Margo Roth Spiegelman on the big screen when Paper Towns is being released, I am now reading the book and so far I love it!
So she’s a model and she can act but did you know that she’s also into music?! That’s right Cara can also sing, beatbox, play the guitar and drums. People now are asking themselves if there’s something she can’t do… Around the same time Cara started out as a model, she wrote and recorded two albums of music she even was offered a record deal. In 2013, she recorded an acoustic duet cover version of "Sonnentanz” with British soul and jazz singer/songwriter Will Heard, I myself really love this version of the song and listen to it frequently. Cara also teamed up with Pharrell Williams to make the song “CC The World” which was used for the short Chanel film Reincarnation in which both Pharrell and herself star.
The reason Cara is one of my idols is because she doesn’t care what people think of her, she’s not afraid of being critisized. In an interview she said:“People are going to judge it so harshly that I think it has to be amazing” about wanting to act and hoping to make her own album. I also really like her character, she’s completely bonkers (in a good way ;) , and her looks and sense of fashion.
Who's that little brunette girl standing next to lady Louise on the balcony?

Any children there not familiar it is a good guess they are a Kent. Whether Helen’s or her older brother the Earl of St Andrews. Her younger brother’s children are not old enough to be on the balcony yer
