Cara Delevingne: The Movie
We now know more about Cara than we ever really needed to.
It’s been a pretty Cara-heavy week this week. After her Guardian interview where she admitted she dreams about punching paparrazi and advises people with brains not to become models, she’s now released a three and half minute long video trailer for new collaboration with leather powerhouse, Mulberry.
Shot entirely in black and white, the video looks like a cross between a perfume advert, an episode of ‘How It’s Made’ and the first ever shot of Serena Van der Woodsen stumbling round Grand Central Station. It features Cara being kooky, Cara being plummy, and Cara being ‘real’ about life, Mulberry, and why she wants her tattoos to be replicated on the bag.
So, thanks to this video, this is what we now know about Cara and her charmed life:
She’s pretty blasé
Calling Alexa Chung ‘Alexa’. Calling the fact that Mulberry are using her as a muse ‘funny’. Being blown around by the wind outside the Mulberry headquarters like an empty paper bag. Wearing a fur coat and fedora with trainers. Looking over Paddington station like the time Mufasa tells Simba one day all of this will be yours. Cara, you truly are royalty.
Her voice really is that posh
There’s not much out there by way of videos of Cara talking for more than a minute. With three and a half minutes of uninterrupted chat, it’s difficult to escape from Cara’s pretty plummy voice - check out the most proper pronunciation of ‘proper’ ever.
Life in the country sounds VERY charmed
Describing her school days as full of bread baking, fence mending, sheep rearing and running around forests, Cara’s upbringing sounds a bit like something from an Enid Blyton novel, and conjures up a pretty hilarious image of a supermodel kneading dough and shearing sheep.
The bag looks a little like a school bag…
…Because apparently her own one “was a sack with holes in it”. Perhaps this is a coming of age project for Cara, who knows her fan base is predominantly quite young. This bag will be a perfect accessory for teenagers with a spare 500-800 quid in their piggy bank.
She’s managed to put bits of herself on the bag
Not fingernails or anything, more super cute lion pins and a large ‘Made In England’ stamp on the base. It makes sense for the famously painted lady to recreate her own personal branding on a bag that she’s helped create, making ‘The Cara’ possibly one of the most unique collaborations Mulberry has ever had.
