The other day the internet made a helluva deal about Cara Delevingne officially retiring from modeling to focus on her acting career. Modeling made her feel “hollow,” she said. It made her hate herself and her body, she said.
Days later, here’s the retired model clad in only a slick black blazer for YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture campaign, which, according to Delevingne’s Instagram, is “A colour so bold you’d feel naked without it” (note the British spelling of “colour” – way to stay true to your roots, Cara!).
Finding the former model in major campaigns should come as little surprise; actresses often grace beauty and fashion campaigns as well as model-y editorials which run alongside v serious interviews about their latest roles and what designers they like and stuff. Actresses are almost always found on the cover of fashion magazines and, on occasion, an actress may even walk a runway or two.
So don’t get it twisted, Delevingne is still very much a retired model, despite appearing in a very model-esque pose for YSL.
