There was a lull in her modelling career after that, as she decided to concentrate on her studies; but she later reignited her career by signing up with a popular modelling agency called Storm management.
She had to wait for nearly two years to land her 1st runway show. Cara’s first catwalk was in the London Fashion Week. She was appreciated as a model, and even got the opportunity to open and close for her mentor Christopher Bailey’s 2012 Burberry Prorsum collection.

Career as an Actor
The first acting assignment for Cara was in a film called ‘Anna Karenina’. She played a princess, and the role suited Cara perfectly because of her real-life image as British royalty. Next in line was an appearance in a British TV show called ‘Playhouse Presents’.

But it wasn’t until Cara starred in ‘Paper Towns’ that she earned rave reviews for sheer acting skills. Later, she even played a mermaid in the fantasy film ‘Pan’. These Cara Delevingne movies did very well and she broke out of her image as a model/actor to just an actor.
‘Suicide Squad’ alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood (like Will Smith) got Cara the mainstream fame, which is essential for an actor to become a global star.
