Is that who I think it is?

Cara Delvigne has one of the best known faces in Britain, so if you think you see her in M&S, you are not losing your sanity. She lives here. One of the world’s top models, she signed with Storm Model Management in 2009 when she was 17. Her breakthrough as a model came when she was chosen to represent Burberry and went on to win the “Model of the Year” award at the British Fashion Awards in 2012 and 2014. Fashion houses in whose shows she has appeared include Burberry, Chanel, Mulberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Oscar de la Renta, Donna Karan, Rag & Bone and Jason Wu.

Since 2012 she has been forging a career as an actor. Roles include Margo Roth Spiegelman in the romantic mystery film Paper Towns (2015), Kath Talent in London Fields, and the Enchantress in the comic book film Suicide Squad (2016).

In October 2017, she also made her debut as a novelist. Mirror, Mirror is young adult fiction with an LGBT theme, co-written with Rowan Coleman. She told the New York Post that she wanted to “tell a story that gives the reader a realistic picture of the turbulent roller-coaster teenage years”.

She was born in Hammersmith, grew up in Belgravia and went to school at Frances Holland School for Girls and Bedales in Hampshire.
