  • 14 million followers (and counting) can't be wrong. Take it away, Cara Delevingne *drum roll*...

    Cara D’s never one to shy away from social media – often treating her fans to weird and wonderful moments of herself and her fashion crew – including Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss. The 22-year old may be Karl Lagerfeld’s muse and have supermodel sleepovers with Joan Smalls, but she still knows how to poke fun out of herself. Whether she’s imposing her face onto a mermaid’s body (with fellow Brit It-models Suki Waterhouse and Georgia May Jagger), or distorting her face altogether (see Jenner / Delevingne mash-up below), is it any wonder we’re addicted to scrolling through her Instagram account? Here’s some of our favourite moments.

    1. When Cara met Hansel and Derek…

    Working her best ‘Blue Steel’ pose with Zoolander stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson backstage at PFW this season. Captioning the epic picture, ‘I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more to life than being really really ridiculously good looking… And I plan on finding out what that is #ZOOLANDER2 #BLUESTEEL #DEREK #HANSEL.’

    2. Introducing… mini (evil eyes) Cara

    Those snaps of you when you were younger, donning a weird facial expression, for most, are kept safe in the family photo album. But for Cara, she couldn’t help but share with her millions of followers this killer retro snap of her mouth covered in chocolate (and looking less than pleased to be having her photo taken), with her big sis Poppy.

    3. Photoshop magic…

    4. Supermodel Sleepovers

    Catching up on their beauty sleep… Cara regrammed this picture of her sharing snuggles with her model mates Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss.

    5. The ‘Coming Out’ snap…

    She’s been pictured kissing Hollywood actress Michelle Rodriguez, and is currently rumoured to be seeing singer St. Vincent. But Cara has never actually confirmed where she is on the sexuality spectrum. Regardless, we loved her political prowess when she shared this picture of her wearing this ‘WE ARE YOU’ T-shirt last year, in support of National Coming Out Day. ‘Doesn’t matter who you are or what you believe it, we are one!’ Delevingne wrote on Instagram. ‘Go get yourself one of these shirts right now! I’m late for National Coming Out Day but better late then never. Don’t be scared to be who you are.’

    6. Cara poses naked (again)…

    Cara shared this revealing snap of herself on her instagram during a trip to the Indonesian island of Bali. In the past she’s commented: ‘Growing up I wasn’t into fashion – I kind of liked being naked.’

    7. The Insta-teaser…

    The social media world went into a spin when Beyoncé and Cara D shared matching Insta-snaps of them in the studio this month, leading everyone to think that a music collaboration is in the works. Watch this space.

    8. Keeping up with Kendall and Cara…

    You know what they say – BFFS that selfie together, stay together. And both Cara and Kendall’s social media feeds are full of these new bessies larking around – so tight they’re practically one person, as depicted in this super-snap of their faces merged together. Which, we have to say, at first glance, looks awfully like Victoria Beckham, no?
