Triple Threat - Cara Delevingne's Breakout Year

Cara Delevingne is one of the busiest celebrities on the planet, with a trifecta of major releases this summer and fall, putting her front and center.  Rarely does a model make such a smooth transition from the fashion world to arts and entertainment.  Definitely not a one-trick-pony, it appears that modeling with all it’s particular challenges was merely a warm up for much bigger things, as Cara leapt from campaigns and covers, to red carpets and movie screens.

As a model, Cara has stood out with her cool nonchalance, her androgyny, and her ability to still look like herself and her brand, while being transformed into editorial and runway characters created by editors, stylists, and fashion designers.  It wasn’t just her extraordinary eyebrows (while that certainly didn’t hurt) that catapulted her, but her own persona and unique personality that made everyone want to work with her – and, yes, have eyebrows like hers.  She is fearless in front of the camera, preferring to be herself, rather than conforming to a classic beauty ideal.

Animated and possessing a strong sense of self, Cara is a natural actress, appearing in this summer’s sci-fi feature “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”, "Suicide Squad", and in the upcoming film “Tulip Fever”.  While winning roles in movies is already a huge accomplishment, not to mention requiring a massive commitment and focus, Cara has somehow managed to drop a new music video to accompany her song “I Feel Everything”, the soundtrack to “Valerian” produced by Pharrell Williams.  But triple-threat Cara has one more release up her sleeve, this time as an author, anticipating her debut fictional novel in October 2017, entitled “Mirror, Mirror”, about identity, friendship, and how appearances can deceive.  Does she ever sleep?? 

It goes without saying that on one should never underestimate Cara and her ability to forge her own path, to set the trends rather than follow them, and to be in every sense, a renaissance women in her own right.  And admit it, you have to love her cropped platinum haircut – who else but Cara could pull off such a bold look without any hesitation?  We could all use a bit of that sort of self-defining spirit.
