Comments that suggest fashion’s favorite wild child Cara Delevingne is set to quit modeling reached fever pitch this week following an interview with The Times in which the star opened up about the industry’s flaws and talked about focusing on her burgeoning acting career.
However, the British beauty has stopped short of announcing any definitive retirement from the catwalk, so we’re holding out hope that she returns one day. Because, apart from her world-famous eyebrows, look at what fashion would lose if she left for good:
Campaigns with Kate Moss
From Burberry to Mango, the Mossy x Delevingne duo is one of our favorite fashion pairings in recent years. The two UK icons are both known for their quirky style, their strong personalities and their ability to break the mold. Plus, they both look amazing in trench coats.
Delevingne’s refreshing sense of style means she isn’t afraid to rock a daring jumpsuit on the red carpet, often teaming it with a bold beauty choice such as elaborate body tattoos, which she wore to the 2015 MET Gala.
High street glamour
She has walked the runway for some of the biggest fashion houses and is a protégée of Karl Lagerfeld, but what we love most about Cara is her ability to bring her unique streak of cool to high street collections. Our favorite recent example is the Topshop Spring / Summer 2015 campaign, where she was spotted looking fierce in a white jumpsuit and silver heels.
An impeccable red lip
She might be known around the world for her strong, heavy eyebrows, but Cara has proven time and time again that she can nail the red lip, too. She worked a gorgeous makeup look at the Cannes Film Festival 2014, wearing a rosy burgundy shade that matched her pale complexion perfectly and proved that you can focus on eyes and lips at the same time, with stunning results.
Cara’s sense of fun has always made her stand out in the fashion crowd. Who else would you expect to see dancing down the catwalk alongside Joan Smalls for Stella McCartney’s Autumn/Winter 2014 show?
