  • The supermodel is set to be the focus of a new documentary called The Cara Project

    There aren’t many models who manage to make the transition from catwalk queen to actress. But somehow Cara Delevingne has managed to make the whole evolution look unbelievably effortless.

    Want to know how she did it? Well, it looks like we might finally have an answer thanks to a new documentary.

    The Cara Project is set to examine exactly how the British supermodel managed to transform herself from fashion’s hottest property to a silver screen star.

    Having been acquired by Revolver Entertainment, the programme is set to be released on DVD in the next few months. However, The Cara Project is also reported to have been offered to broadcasters so there’s a high chance we may see it on our small screens first.

    As a model, Cara has fronted countless campaigns including Burberry, Fendi, Tom Ford, Chanel, Balmain and Mulberry.

    However since she began focusing on acting two years ago, Cara has already starred in Paper Towns, Pan and Kids In Love. Probably the most high profile of her roles to date, Cara also starred in the hugely hyped Suicide Squad in which she appeared alongside an all-star cast of Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto.

    But amongst her film credits is also London Fields, an adaptation of the novel by Martin Amis which had previously been described as ‘unadaptable’. Last year, the film ended up being withdrawn just 24 hours before it was set to have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival 2015.

    The reason? According to the Guardian, irector Matthew Cullen is said to be suing the producers for ‘destroying’ his original edit by recutting it to add in pornographic shots and clips of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre. So it doesn’t look like it’ll be hitting cinemas any time soon.

    Let’s hope that Cara’s upcoming films – Tulip Fever and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets ­– will have a little more luck.
