Style Icon: Cara Delevingne

Style Icons

If you thought that Brit model Cara Delevingne was big last year, expect her to blow up and become an even bigger star this year. Starring in the much anticipated onscreen adaptation of John Green’s “Paper Towns,” set to come out this summer, Cara D. will make the Hollywood red carpets her new runway. She’s already conquered pretty much every designer’s runway out there anyway, now she’s set her sights on a film career. This model’s career trajectory has been nothing short of stellar. She became a supermodel seemingly overnight, with her face on every major label’s campaign and her signature brows spotted on every important fashion show. She’s shown off excellent street style too. Here are my top 10 picks of some of her best style moments:2bf7117bb4d061a7b92707add703acbe

Who can forget this studded Burberry number that Cara wore during the Met Gala? She totally nailed that year’s theme of Punk Couture. With super smoky and dark eyes and multiple piercings on one ear, Cara ruled the red carpet that night.

Her off-duty model style is what it’s all about. A slinky black sheath dress is a model style must. Perfectly complemented with a rich and luscious oversized camel coat, a black and white striped clutch, and black heeled sandals, this classic look offsets her fashionably undone bun.

Now this is the Cara we know and love. Laidback, sexy, and completely cool, she expresses her signature tomboy chic and rebellious style even in the most casual of outfits. She accessorizes denim overalls and flip-flops with on-trend extras like a wide-brim hat, mirrored sunglasses, and a paisley one-piece.

You didn’t think she’d wear a pantsuit in the “normal” way, do you? Cara flips the script on this tailored staple with a pair of bright and bold color blocked runners, and a bare cleavage accessorized with layered gold necklaces. Youthful and a little bit subversive, this look is precisely what makes Cara Delevingne a modern style icon.

High-waist black skinnies with an oversized belt buckle? Yes, please. Cara certainly knows the power of contrast, the nude button-down against stark black, large accessory vs. tailored and skinny. It’s all about the mix. The edgy buckled boots are a great addition too.

You can’t expect Cara to show up in an evening event in just a typical cocktail dress. She amps up evening dress by a couple of notches by flaunting her statuesque legs in a velvet blazer dress. Textured, luxe, sexy, and short, Cara definitely knows what she’s doing.

Leave it to this newly minted style icon to take a vintage graphic tee to greater heights. She pairs her tee with prim and proper trousers and red satin court pumps. The red lip, studded clutch, and her bold brows complete this style statement and make it more than appropriate for a night out on the town.

Her tomboy style and love for hats come together in this adorable street style look. From the buttoned-up gauzy blouse to the on-trend pastel blue shorts, she channels 60s Twiggy in this incredibly chic look. Throw in the black platform sandals and wide-brim hat and you get fashion perfection.

I simply can’t get enough of Cara’s tuxedo looks. She manages to wear this tailored style staple in so many different ways, and she makes it looks fresh every single time. Her take, this time around, involves a double-breasted jacket detail, contrast lapel, wine stained lips, and zip-up booties. Can it get any better than this? This is edgy evening to a T.

Don’t let Cara’s love for street style fool you. She can definitely glam it up if she wants or needs to. This look is evidence of that. A beautiful glittering column gown with a side slit combined with black details and accessories, this is definitely a recipe for a rebel chic red carpet look.

Do you love Cara’s style as much as I do? Sound off in the comments about your favorite look!
