From Vogue Italia’s polarising new March cover to Gucci hosting an electronic music event, these are the top international fashion news stories of the week.
Cara Delevingne Writes Her First Novel
For some, reincarnation holds the potential to experience multiple different lives. For English model, Cara Delevingne, this feat has already been achieved in just 24 short years. Amidst the release of a new Chanel ‘Gabrielle’ campaign video featuring the platinum blonde It-girl, the multi-talented star announced this week that she has written her first novel. The book, which is set to be released in October, is titled ‘Mirror Mirror’ and is a “twisty coming-of-age story” about friendship, school, and relationships.
Cara, who made her debut into the fashion world at age ten modelling for Vogue Italia, was officially signed to Storm Management in 2009. In 2011, she was propelled into the international spotlight when she became the face of Burberry Prorsum’s Spring/Summer collection. Since then, the stunning chameleon has taken on a number of different roles, walking for high fashion houses including Moschino, Oscar De La Renta, and Fendi. Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld adopted the rebellious model as his muse for Chanel, while 2016’s blockbuster film ‘Suicide Squad’ transformed her into the enigmatic Enchantress. Miss Delevingne has recorded two albums and is a skilled drummer, guitarist and beatboxer. Just in case her resume needed a few extra skills, the candy-striped angel who appeared on Victoria’s Secret’s 2013 catwalk has also designed collections for DKNY and Mulberry.
With the sole of her left foot bearing a ‘Made in England’ tattoo, it is easy to identify the origin of this gifted star. Where the future will take her and what talents she will reveal to the world next, however, is anyone’s guess.
