Cara Delevingne: 'I'm still not a fashionista'

Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne doesn't consider herself to be a "fashionista".

The model/actress has reflected on her career in a new interview with Derek Blasberg for U.K. Elle magazine, and revealed that despite being the face of Dior Beauty, and walking the catwalk for luxury fashion houses including Chanel, she thinks members of her family are much more stylish.

"I'm still not a fashionista. I think anyone, in comparison to me, is more 'fashion' than I am," she said. "I guess my household was more fashion-y than most. My dad is a fashionable person, though he likes to be naked, and my mother is a fashionable person - she's kind of a hoarder. My grandmother always had a lot of clothes, too."

Cara went on to open up about her fears of not being a successful model when she first started out in the industry, and told Derek she needed to try her hand at other options, such as acting, or she'd have a breakdown.

"I didn't ever think that I would be successful at it in any way, shape, or form. But a few years in, I realised it wasn't good for me, physically or emotionally, and I'd have to try new, different things," the 27-year-old explained.

Elsewhere in the interview, Cara recalled some of her most memorable fashion moments and pinpointed her Burberry perfume campaign with icon Kate Moss back in 2014 as a highlight.

"One of the best and worst moments was shooting my first Burberry campaign with Kate. It was terrifying! How do you get your photo taken next to her? It's like shooting with a panther. She's the queen of the set but also, she might eat me. I was in awe but trying to get the shot. Every time I was on set, I'd be staring at her instead of looking at the camera," she laughed.
