Let’s be honest, we’ve all at some point wished we were Kate Moss, and then when Cara Delevingne stepped onto the scene, there became a new kind of model we wanted to be. She's the one who doesn’t take herself too seriously and shows us that, although she’s a model, it’s still OK to have fun and be caught dressed down in your skinny jeans and a beanie hat.
Cara’s a model with personality, which is something we’ve never really been able to say about the likes of Kate or Naomi Campbell, as we don’t have the same kind of intimacy with them due to their lack of a personal social media presence.
Through Twitter and Instagram, Cara gives us an insight into her fun and glamorous life that many of us envy. So it comes as a bit of a shock that in a recent interview with Alexis Petridis for the Guardian, she admitted that if she had a daughter who aspired to become a model, she’d advise against it. Although she loves her job, she admits that she’s been very lucky regarding her success.
"I was incredibly lucky to do as well as I've done, it's not easy, there's so many models go through so much shit, and it's just, if you have a brain, which everyone does, use it and try and do something else," she explained.
Although it seems we’re sharing every moment of Cara’s fabulous life on social media, we’re obviously not seeing the full picture. Remember when she posted her cool new "Made In England" tattoo and we didn’t really think much about her reason for having it? Cara explained that, as a model, "you're looked through, you're not looked at, you are treated as a kind of mannequin." So, she decided to get a tattoo to express that.
Maybe it's a good thing that we’ve not all been blessed with supermodel looks, right?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding photo broke records in recent weeks, becoming the most liked photo in Instagram history with over 2.29 million likes to date. But they didn't get so many likes without a lot of hard work. Kanye tells Page Six that it took half a week to get the photo just right, no thanks to Annie Leibovitz, who was supposed to shoot the wedding. Apparently, photographing Kim K in one wedding dress was enough for the shutterbug. West says Leibovitz pulled out of her photographer's duties one day before the nuptials. “She was afraid of celebrity," Kanye hypothesized, forgetting for a moment the countless celebs Leibovitz has photographed over her career.
The couple, committed to having that hazy Leibovitz-style filter on all their photos, then took matters into their own hands and tried to recreate the photographer's famous aesthetic by tweaking the photo themselves. “Because Annie pulled out, I was like, ‘Okay, I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz,’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for, like, four days because the flowers were off-color."
Four days, though? Don't worry, it was all in the name of bringing the medium of Instagram up to West's lofty levels: "Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the No. 1 person on Instagram, ‘We need to work on the color of the flower wall,’ or the idea that it’s a Givenchy dress, and it’s not about the name Givenchy, it’s about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci—and how important Kim is to the Internet. And the fact the No. 1 most-liked photo [on Instagram] has a kind of aesthetic was a win for what the mission is, which is raising the palette." YES, ya'll it's about the marketability of the couple and their friends–not their blissful union and commitment to raising a family with love and respect.
Kendall Jenner's recent appearance in a Fausto Puglisi double-slit gown has heralded the emergence of a disturbing new trend: pubic cleavage. Or rather, "pevage" — which the New York Daily News claims is the "increasingly accepted term" for the area.
"Like it or love it, you may be revealing your own pevage soon," says the publication, claiming that the pelvic area has supplanted both actual cleavage and sideboob as the red carpet's new 'it' private part. Thanks, but my pevage already gets exactly the right amount of attention, even in this pevage-concealing regime.
Speaking of: I appreciate a good portmanteau but "pevage" sounds like a disorder and "pelvic cleavage" is a misnomer. If the word "cleave" refers to a split, then "cleavage" is the hollow. You can't indiscriminately apply the term to any vaguely titillating expanse of skin. There has to be clefting, or it's not cleavage.

British model, actress and Cara Delevingne's sidekick, Suki Waterhouse, has revealed she will design a collection for Italian shoe label Superga. Already the face of the sneaker brand, Waterhouse told British Vogue how she made the transition from model to designer for the three-style platform collection.
"I spent a lot of time putting paper over my laptop screen and tracing things for inspiration, that bit was tricky," she told British Vogue. "I was in Paris over that time, so ideas came from shop windows and my experience there. It was a really interesting process, I learnt a lot."
And if she's not busy modelling for Burberry or being cast in a movie like her upcoming role in the sci-fi sequel Insurgent, the 22-year-old hinted she could possibly delve into the design world again. "I loved doing it, so let's see what happens next." If her covetable London-look is anything to go by, we'd say her collection for Superga launching in August, and any thereafter, will be worth jotting down in the diary.
