Anyone that has seen ‘Paper Towns’ this summer or the Mango’s #somethingincommon commercial, is going to feel like they have something in common with Cara Delevingne. This cheeky and even more laid-back version of Kate Moss has taken over the Internet, sporting luxurious Burberry trench coats on the catwalk, but running around in trainers and sweatpants on the streets of Notting Hill.
This bubbly 23-year-old might be a supermodel, working for the biggest designers’ campaigns, but don’t let that fool you – in real life she dresses as simply and casually as the girl next door. Her personality shows not only through the simplicity of her everyday outfits, but also the innovative red carpet ideas, where she always brings a breath of fresh air and an unsolved mystery – just like her character Margo.
I am sure every student has taken inspiration from Cara’s street style at least once since they came to Uni, as this girl has mastered the art of being both comfortable and chic with her ‘celebrity at the airport’ kind of looks. Skinny and ripped jeans, band t-shirts, massive hobo-like coats, leather jackets and trainers seem to be Cara’s everyday staples that she builds her outfits around. She usually accessorises with beanies and bandanas, as well as quirky-shaped sunglasses. On an everyday basis comfort definitely comes first for Cara.
GOING OUT CARA
As you can tell from the pictures, Cara’s red carpet style is very hard to classify – she unveils a different part of her every time she shows up at a premiere, fashion event or a gala, so she simply cannot be put in a tagged box.
Cara can easily rock any going out attire, from a playful revealing co-ord to that silver sparkly cutout dress or the eternal Hollywood glam with her diamonds and lace. No matter what she wears, she is never in disguise – her unique style peaks through anything she has on, the great example being one of her Met Gala looks – she swapped khaki jeans for white cigarette trousers and looked young, fresh and smart, yet not overly dressed up for her age. Her all-black look and fake oriental tattoos she sported at this year’s Met Gala should inspire both her colleagues, as well as us girls to be bold and to play with fashion – that’s what it’s for.
