You may have seen that Cara Delevingne, with her amazing wardrobe and equally as amazing facial expressions, is a regular on my Tumblr. I am so obsessed with this girl right now that I thought I'd do a kind of fun blog- with a good dose of fashion inspiration thrown in of course! Pretty much nothing tops flicking through Cara's imaginative faces and so I'm sharing with you my favourites on this post! From peace signs with pouts to tongues, freaky eye rolls and 'gawkilicious' grins, (all modelled below) Cara's got her off-duty look nailed. This is why I adore her- she's like two people in one, a total dual personality. On the catwalk she is a picture of youthful elegance; graceful, sophisticated... and backstage she turns into the coolest nerd ever.

Cara definitely doesn't take herself too seriously, which adds a lovable dimension to her model stereotype. You can tell she's not one of those beauties who complains if they break a fingernail; instead she sings and play drums alongside strutting her stuff for practically every fashion house going. Cara admits to being 'a bit boy-ey' and playing on her Xbox. She even has a headpiece for Call of Duty (See video at the bottom of the page!!) Before last week's incredible Victoria's Secret catwalk run (their 17th annual lingerie show), Cara and Jourdan Dunn were interviewed behind the scenes about their preparation for the event, with Cara admitting she'd snuck into McDonalds for lunch and had pizza for dinner the night before! "I'm a model but I eat", were her exact words, and it must be true- her Tumblr background is currently a collage of baked bean tins! Cara even retweeted the link to a site covering her and Jourdan's snacking habits on her Twitter page earlier today. GSOH- tick. Oh, and not forgetting she probably holds the record for the most enviable eyebrows in the world- she has undoubtedly brought the power brow back.

Onto the wardrobe of our crazy fashionista, and a grunge-loving one she is. It's hardly surprising that Cara turned out to be as super-stylish as she is with an older sibling like Poppy, yet she does maintain her own distinct look. Her closet is a mash-up of leather and embellished jackets, slogan tees, skinny jeans, trench coats and boyish knits (and, when she's in the mood, the occasional plunging dress or sequin mini)! She tends to rock a laced biker boot with everything, likewise, she's often sporting stacks of funky ethnic-looking rings on her fingers. Beanies and sunnies (or grills as she calls them in the vid for store The Village Bicycle) are a key part of her everyday, lounge-about look. Here are a few of my favourite outfits of Cara's!
I just love the gorgeous green hue of this Burberry Prorsum Fall '11/12 military style coat and its looped fastenings are really eyecatching. Cara's gone for minimalist monochrome chic underneath with a loose white shirt and a peek of her lacy bra. Adore the leather pants and the boots too!
Cara is rarely seen in a sparkly frock, but this shows she should wear one more often!! At last year's Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards, Cara wore this stunning Burberry dress, adding her signature Cara edginess with a waist-cinching black buckle belt, spiked bracelet, black envelope clutch and trusty laceups (all Burberry)!
Pictured here with Jourdan Dunn, Cara attended 2011's Serpentine Summer Party in this lady-like cream dress- who else could team a cocktail-party frock with heavy motorcycle booties and still look sophisticated?! I want her boho-embroidered headband too!! And her hair...
Another pair of skinnies, but Cara does them so well. Her Paige Denim striped jeans paired with a skull tee, fitted blazer and sleek black high-tops make for a rocky, effortlessly quirky look. She accessorized with the fab Mulberry Maisie bag.
I know it's not festival weather but I had to include Cara's Glastonbury look purely because it is soo cool. She is wearing a Mother of Pearl t-shirt with her denim shorts, a mini Mulberry cross-body bag and Hunter trainers. The paisley-print scarf, super-cute headband (recycled!!) and baby blue wayfarers make the outfit for me!! Cara rocks free-spirited style.
I hope you have now realised that Cara is possibly the coolest girl on earth. Now check out her Tumblr page for more up-to-date funny faces, what she's up to and what she's coveting in her closet: http://iamcaradelevingne.tumblr.com/).
And you have to watch this video (made last year to advertise Notting Hill boutique The Village Bicycle) to really get a sense of what Cara is all about- I guarantee you will love her and her Made In Chelsea style accent!
