While most models are merely anonymous vehicles used to get the clothes down the runway, thanks to a rumored romance with One Direction’s Harry Styles and sightings with famous friends like Rihanna, catwalker Cara Delevingne really made a name for herself during Fashion Week.
Since she was spotted on a date with One Direction’s Harry Styles last week — the pair took in a performance of The Book of Mormon in London’s West End – Delevingne has become a person of interest to many outside of the fashion industry. Already considered a fashion It girl — she’s fronted ad campaigns for brands like Burberry, H&M, and Chanel — the 21-year-old British model stole the show at designer Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 presentation, held last night in New York City. One of the last models to arrive, Delevingne was whisked backstage where all eyes, several cameras and a video crew were on her as she was prepped by the hair and makeup teams. A short time later, organizers cleared the area so that she and the other models could get dressed for the show, always one of the most anticipated events at New York Fashion Week.
Hitting the runway in a fringe embellished sweatshirt, sequined pants, blue moccasin boots, and a cropped blonde wig, Delevingne blended into the gaggle of models — which also included Georgia Jagger, daughter of Rolling Stone frontman Mick Jagger — but if her relationship with Styles lasts, the model will have to get used to the extra attention.
