Love her or hate her, Cara Delevingne is undisputedly the model of the moment. Those eyebrows, that walk, her style – everything about her screams supermodel.

What I like most about Cara, and makes me believe there is more than two years of longevity in her career, is her multifaceted talents that expand beyond the catwalk. Cara is a consummate music fanatic; herself a drum player and singer (prepare yourselves for the upcoming duet of Cara and Pharell in the latest Chanel ad campaign!), as well as a contributing designer for brands such as DKNY. Whatever she does, you can tell that this saucy Brit truly walks to the beat of her own drum  (excuse the drum pun).

At 5’7, when most models are at least 5’9, Cara owns every inch of her presence when she walks into a room, almost like a modern day Kate Moss. Unlike the other girls who show up to castings in black shirts and jeans, Cara has a style so uniquely her own that she makes jaunting around Le Carrousel du Louvre look like a fashion show in and of itself.

Born into an aristocratic family in Hammersmith, London, Cara was one of three sisters (including model Poppy). Fashion and success were almost fortuitously fateful as her paternal grandfather is the renowned Condé Nast executive Nicholas Coleridge, and her maternal grandfather was executive and English Heritage chairman Sir Jocelyn Stevens. Being immersed in such a high brow fashion world at an early age led Cara to her first official assignment at age eleven in an editorial shot by Bruce Weber for Vogue Italia. After a break from the modeling world, in 2009 Cara was once again discovered by Sarah Doukas of Storm Management (the scout who ironically was responsible for discovering Kate Moss). Since then Cara has walked the runways and landed the campaigns of companies such as Burberry, Chanel, Tom Ford, and Yves Saint Laurent to name a few.

So, like any stylist, I thought I would have a little fun and dress Cara up for a Chicago Fall week. Where she’s going – I have no idea, but I tried to remain true to both her own unique style as well as mine. AND, to make things just a little bit sweeter, I tried to replicate her outfits at an affordable cost. Have some fun with my CARAcatures and be sure to comment and let me know which ones are your favorites!
