All runways lead to the new It girl of fashion…

Vogue have called Cara Delevingne the model of the year but we reckon she’s the hottest thing to happen in fashion since Kate Moss got her queen of cool status in the nineties.

Last show season Cara Delevingne walked 39 catwalks, she’s got more celeb friends than Beyonce and has even had a dalliance with One Direction’s Harry Styles.

What’s more, the very same model booker, Sarah Doukas, who famously scouted Kate Moss at JFK and signed her to Storm models, was the first to see the potential of Cara Delevingne.

Just like Kate Moss, Cara at 5ft 9in is shorter than the average model and there’s no doubt about it, Cara is a party girl.

This London Fashion Week, Cara walked straight off the catwalk to be on the FROW at Rihanna’s show for River Island, she then went partying with Ri-Ri till 4.00am and was back at work in hair and make-up for Mulberry at 8.00am!

At last a new icon that we can steal beauty ideas and fashion forward style tips from, because let’s face it, Kate Moss’s lady of the manor country look is boring!
