See the backstage footage from the British model's first ever lingerie campaign
Cara Delevingne‘s so-hot-it-hurts La Perla SS14 campaign is one of our favourites from the British model this year, and now we’ve got a sneak behind-the-scenes look at how the stunning shoot was created.
Filmed by famed snappers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the sultry black-and-white backstage footage shows La Perla’s three gorgeous amabassadors – Cara Delevingne, Liu Wen and Malgosia Bela – talking to the camera and showcasing the label’s Spring Summer 2014 collection.
Cara’s seen taking selfies, playfully flipping her high-volume hair and striking a series of sexy poses in black lace lingerie as she reveals what first got her into modelling.
‘I’ve loved acting since I was four years old. I’ve always wanted to be a performer,’ the 21-year-old says. ‘The thing with words is that they can mean so much and then mean nothing at all. I try to always mean what I say.’
Supermodel Liu Wen, who is now one of the highest paid models in the world, reveals that being the face of a luxe label such as La Perla wasn’t ever what she pictured herself doing as a little girl. ‘I never thought this would be my job,’ the model laughs.
Talking about the importance of lingerie, La Perla’s third amabassador, Malgosia Bela explains: ‘When you choose your lingerie, think about who’s going to look at it… Or take it off, actually. If the evening goes well!’
‘It’s a balance between being extremely sexy and seductive, and feeling comfortable’, she adds. Wise words from Ms Bela.
As her final statement to the camera, Cara offers up her motto for life: ‘You’re trying to live in the present and be there. Don’t worry, be happy, basically.’
We’re in agreement with you there, Ms D. See it for yourself below…
