Being fashionable isn’t just about ripping off runways and red carpets. Oh no. It’s also about finding a model, actress or ‘It Girl’ and Stalking The Hell out of their Instagram. And the girl I’m stalking right now? Cara Delevingne (or @caradelevingne if you like a bit of #inspo).
Her wardrobe is like Avril Lavigne’s attitude crossed with Kate Moss’s nonchalance and Blair Waldorf’s budget. Sigh. As you would expect from the face of Burberry beauty, she’s got the whole It Girl look down pat. She’s one of those women who can leave her hair un-brushed and let those tousled locks act as an accessory to her enigmatic air of, well… Damn Awesomeness. She’s the woman you love to hate.
The bushy-browed model’s recent assault on the world of fashion has been nothing short of amazing. Crowned Britain’s Model of The Year in 2012, Delevigne most recently sang for the Katie Grand Loves Hogan autumn/winter ’13 campaign. But back to her wardrobe. Like a good style detective, I’ve traced her best and most coveted looks and whittled them down to key key pieces you need to get Cara Delevigne’s look.
1. By day, the Brit model of the moment is rarely seen without her biker jacket and serious-looking ankle boots, which she cleverly offsets with spray-on skinny pants.
2. After hours, this goddess of grunge transforms into the life of the party. No surprises there. Let’s just say she’s no stranger to sequins and metallic…
3. Her signature look often involves seriously slick leather pants.
4. Like any deserving It Girl icon, Delevigne knows how to work her assets. She amplifies her eyes (and her rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic) with dramatic eyeliner and lashings of mascara, pared back with nude or peach lips.
