Cara Delevingne’s early life

Delevingne was born on August 12, 1992, in England. She came from a rather wealthy family. Her mother, Pandora Stevens, came from an aristocratic background with close ties to the royal family. Meanwhile, her father, Charles Delevingne, was a property developer. Delevingne grew up in the affluent Belgravia neighborhood in London.

Despite the fact that she seemed to have it all on the surface, Delevingne once described her childhood as “pretty sad.” This is because her mother was addicted to heroin and couldn’t spend much time truly bonding with Delevingne and her sisters.

“As a child I suffered a lot because I wasn’t able to spend much time with [my mother] and then at 15 this terrible wave of depression hit me… School was a nightmare for me,” Delevingne shared.

Her less-than-stellar home life made Delevingne drawn to acting. She said that being on stage was her “only way to feel alive.”

Cara Delevingne found fame as a successful model

In 2009, when she was 17 years old, Delevingne signed with Storm Management — one of the biggest modeling agencies in the UK. She landed her first runway show for London Fashion Week in February 2011.

It didn’t take long before Delevingne blew up in the modeling world. In 2012, she began walking in more runway shows and appearing on prestigious magazine covers. She even carved out a good relationship with Chanel’s famous creative director, Karl Lagerfeld.

“Cara represents the modern It girl,” Lagerfeld said in an interview. “She’s full of life, full of pep. I like girls to be wild but at the same time beautifully brought up and very funny.”

In 2012 and 2013, Delevingne appeared in the Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show. She never became a Victoria’s Secret Angel, but the exposure helped cemented her as one of the biggest stars in the modeling industry.

However, in 2015, Delevingne started cutting down on modeling work to focus on something else: her acting career.

Since then, Delevingne has been seen in a few other successful movies such as Suicide Squad and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Her upcoming work includes the Amazon Prime fantasy series Carnival Row, which will see Delevingne star alongside actor Orlando Bloom.
