21 Things You Didn’t Know About Cara Delevingne

Time to get to know Britian’s hottest model.

1. She first appeared in Vogue Italia at age 10, shot by Bruce Weber.

2. She was “spotted” by Sarah Doukas, who also scouted Kate Moss.

“I went to school with Sarah Doukas’s [owner of Storm models] daughter and she spotted my sister Poppy first and then waited for me.”

3. But she’s quite short by industry standards — 5’7” or 5’8” (she’s not sure).

Needless to say, her agency says she’s 5’9.

4. Her grandmother was lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret.

5. Joan Collins is her godmother.

(Also, her godfather is Nicholas Coleridge, the president of Condé Nast International.)

6. Her older sister is model/socialite Poppy Delevingne.

She has another older sister too — Chloe, who recently pulled a total “big sister” move and threw all of Cara’s friends out of a house party gone wild.

7. Her family nickname is ‘Monster’.

8. She can drum — she’s been writing music since she was 13.

17. She’s trademarked her name.

18. She’s always been a tomboy.

20. She’s got two tattoos on her hand, both inked by Bang Bang.

21. Her eyebrow advice is straightforward.

“People ask me, “What’s your secret?” And I’m like, “You just don’t pluck them. It’s really simple.” I mean, I do, obviously, a little bit, because otherwise I’d have a monobrow, but it’s just about keeping them wild, keeping them free and woolly.”
