Cara Delevingne's Spice Girl dress up

Cara Delevingne's Spice Girl dress up

Cara Delevingne used to dress up as the Spice Girls when she was younger.

The 23-year-old model admits she "always wanted" to be someone else as a child and while she would often copy the appearance of Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Horner during their heyday, she would never don similar outfits of their fellow band member Victoria Beckham.

She said: "It was the sense of dressing up and feeling really tough. When I was a kid, I always wanted to be other people. I went through different stages: I was a few Spice Girls for a while - first Baby [Emma], then Sporty [Mel], and then Ginger [Geri].

"I was never Posh [Victoria], because she wore little black dresses, and I didn't want to be that kind of girl."

When Cara wasn't wearing Union Jack dresses and putting her hair in pig tails, the star was dressinh up as her favourite superhero - Spider-Man.

She said: "Beyond that, I only dreamed of being male superheroes. Spider Man, especially, had a cool costume and cool toys.

"There were not many strong superhero-type women, apart from Wonder Woman - but I didn't want to be a five-year-old running around in, like, a bikini."

While Cara is happy with who she is nowadays, she still loves to copy other stars when she is doing karaoke.

Speaking to W Magazine, she added: "I'm a really serious karaoke singer. You don't want to go to karaoke with me because I try really, really hard. My favourite song to perform is Eve's 'Let Me Blow Your Mind'.

"You've got a lot of singsong, a lot of rap attack, and it's emotional. That song has it all."
