Rarely do I pose an L or L about a person–usually I ask your opinion about trends, products or films, but model/socialite Cara Delevingne keeps popping up on my radar that I can’t help but address her (baffling) popularity. I first heard of the British It Girl as one of Harry Styles’ many conquests and assumed that her “modeling” career was about as prestigious as Courtney Stodden’s, but lo and behold, she’s actually legitimately sought after, strutting in Paris Fashion Week and is the face of Chanel’s Resort 2013 campaign.
But let’s take a closer look at that face, shall we? I’m not a fan of this new ultra-bushy brow trend, nor do I delight in her yellow teeth and never-ending supply of fugly beanies. And what is that hand sign, Cara? Do you know that means “I love you” in sign language? Ooo how edgy! Darling, you aren’t some random model plucked from Chik-Fil-A at a mall food court who can just jaunt about dressed like Justin Bieber–your English family has standing and stature. So while I’ll let you be bold and edgy, please do so in proper hats and with the occasional Crest White Strip, mmkay? Merci.
Do you think CD has what it takes to be the next Naomi or Heidi? Or is she just a flash in the fashion pan?
