EXCLUSIVE! The designer speaks to Marie Claire about model of the moment, Cara Delevingne
Cara Delevingne has cast a serious spell over the fashion industry and her magic touch is showing no signs of stopping. To help us understand the model du jour’s meteoric rise over the past 12 months, we caught up with Henry Holland to see if he could explain it.
Fresh from London Fashion Week we spoke to a more relaxed Henry who shared what it is he thinks makes Cara worthy of our attention. ‘Cara is a live wire with an amazing sense of humour,’ he told us. ‘And she’s got a great personality.’
It’s this that the designer believes makes Cara Delevingne stand out at a casting, as he adds: ‘Cara’s personality makes her such an incredible model. Whilst people often associate models with looks, its girls with true characters that really shine through.’
And that she most certainly does as the model lands job after job the latest of which sees her front Burberry Body Tender’s campaign.
What do you think is the secret to Cara Delevingne’s success? Do you agree with Henry Holland? Let us know below.
