Model Cara Delevingne gives a very candid interview to W Magazine about taking advice from famous friends
Cara Delevingne graces the cover of W Magazine this month, with a topless photoshoot inside and revealing interview where she admits ‘everyone worries about me’.
The 21-year-old face of magazines and billboards is fast becoming known for her reckless lifestyle, constantly surrounded by a gaggle of famous, similarly party-going friends.
‘Everyone worries about me,’ she told W Magazine. ‘It’s hard for my family, and I know I have to be careful. People have to realise that I can take care of myself. I’ve done a great job so far.’
The model enjoyed a steep rise to fame without a moment to catch her breath and admitted in the interview that there have been times when she’s needed to take advice from those who know the industry well.
Cara tells W Magazine that last year, she was on a break in Greece with her sister she promised she would stop everything to relax but, when she did, she said it made her ‘go crazy.’
She continued: ‘I called Rihanna [and] she said “It’s easy to drown yourself in work. That’s a form of escapism. So, if you’re alone and you want to cry, cry.” And I did.’
Her heavy workload – which saw Cara sign up to 40 shows at the start of this year’s fashion season – has also taken its toll on the star physically because she suffers from a form of psoriasis that flares up when she’s stressed.
Cara told W Magazine: ‘ Kate [Moss] saw me before the Louis Vuitton show at 3 a.m., when I was being painted by people to cover the scabs,’
‘She said, ‘This is horrible! Why is this happening? I need to help you.’ She got me a doctor that afternoon; Kate gives really good advice.’ Cara tells W Magazine.
So, although Cara claims she takes care of herself, she rather relies on the stars who’ve been through such tumultuous times at the start of their careers.
