  • The model-of-the-moment has applied to register her name as a trademark in order to launch her own global brand

    She’s the model-of-the-moment who’s bagging high profile campaigns left, right and centre, and is currently storming the catwalks at fashion week, now Cara Delevingne has trademarked her name.

    The British model, who is currently the face of the likes of Burberry, Chanel and DKNY, reportedly registered her name as an official trademark with the UK’s Intellectual Property Office back in December 2012 – giving her sole rights to use it as a marketing tool.

    The 20-year-old’s trademark prevents a whole host of products being released using her name including the typical celebrity endorsements such as perfumes and handbags, as well as the more unusual umbrellas and walking sticks, according to a report in The Sunday Times.


    Trademarking her name seems like a logical step for the in-demand model. As well as the possibility of launching her own clothing line at some point in the future, Cara has her heart set on heading to Hollywood and making it as an actress following her debut role in last year’s Anna Karenina, plus dabbling in the music world and launching herself as a pop act with a little help from close friend Rihanna.
