Cara Delevingne covers Vogue US July 2015 in Prada FW15
With a host of movie roles on the horizon, Cara Delevingne is living the life she always wanted and is ready to be unfiltered and unguarded as never before. For starters, the britsh model-turned-actress is on the cover of the July 2015 issue of Vogue US photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Tonne Goodman.
Here’s what Cara had to share with the mag:
On her family: «“I grew up in the upper class, for sure,” says Cara, whose older sister Poppy, 29, is also a model, while Chloe, 30, a scientist by training, has moved to the country to raise her children. “My family was kind of about that whole parties–and–horse racing thing. I can understand it’s fun for some. I never enjoyed it.” But it was Pandora’s relapsing heroin addiction that may have been the defining fact of Cara’s childhood. “It shapes the childhood of every kid whose parent has an addiction,” she believes. “You grow up too quickly because you’re parenting your parents. My mother’s an amazingly strong person with a huge heart, and I adore her. But it’s not something you get better from, I don’t think. I know there are people who have stopped and are fine now, but not in my circumstance. She’s still struggling.” (Pandora is currently working on a memoir—about her battle with addiction and the eighties London scene that formed its backdrop—which Cara says she has mixed feelings about.)»
On her early modeling days: “My agents told me what to do, and I did it. When I got in trouble, they told me off. It was a machine that I wasn’t controlling. It was like the disgusting way I felt inside was transposing itself on my skin. Somebody should have said stop.”
On leaving modeling for acting: “I admit I was terrified to leave. I mean, the bubble gives you a kind of dysfunctional family. When you’re in it, you get it. And the second you’re out of it, you’re like, What the hell just happened? The thrill of acting is making a character real. Modeling is the opposite of real. It’s being fake in front of the camera.”
