Cara Delevingne goes punk

Cara Delevingne goes punk

Cara Delevingne gave a ballerina-inspired dress a punky edge courtesy of a lip ring at a Chanel party on Monday night (12Oct15).

The model is close friends with the label's creative director Karl Lagerfeld, so it was unsurprising that she was one of the stars in attendance at a new exhibit in London. The event was to mark the company's Mademoiselle Privé showcase, which follows the label's founder Coco Chanel's career up to what's happening with the fashion house now.

Cara wore a black dress, which sported slim straps and a fitted bodice which gave way to a flowing tulle skirt from the waist down. It was reminiscent of a tutu and fell to just above the knee, with the star accessorising with an on-trend choker, complete with large pearl jewel. Her shoes had a thin ankle strap, but it was her make-up which was really exciting. The star had dewy skin and her hair in a tight bun - perhaps to match the ballerina vibe of the dress - with her mouth painted a vibrant red a and a ring glittering in the middle of her lower lip.

Stars flocked to Monday's event, with Rita Ora, Daisy Lowe, Georgia May Jagger, Vanessa Paradis, Julianne Moore and Lara Stone all in attendance too.

It's been a busy period for model-and-actress Cara, who has been promoting her movie Pan and attending shows for the various Fashion Weeks too. On Friday (09Oct15) she spoke about her career to date with Rupert Everett for the Women in the World summit in London, admitting she had to overcome depression and only managed to thanks to fellow supermodel Kate Moss.

"I never felt like I was good enough, that I deserved success. I felt like I was living somebody else’s dream," she said. "I had no concept of saying no to anyone, ever. In life you should always experience things but you should say no. It’s more about being in control and not being a puppet. After a while I got sick and got a condition called psoriasis.

"I felt disconnected from myself, but my agency simply shoved me into a doctor’s surgery, where I got cortisone shots. I wanted someone to go, 'You need to take a break, you need to look after yourself.' No-one did. Kate Moss saved me – she stepped in and picked me up off the floor at a stressful time."
