She”s one of the most sought out models in the fashion industry, so it”s no surprised that Cara Delevingne scored the cover spot of W magazine”s September 2013 issue.
While donning a gorgeous ensemble from Marc Jacobs for the Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott-shot front page, the 21-year-old supermodel dished about learning how to stand out from the others and even revealed her constant battle with a skin disease.
Check out a few highlights from Miss Delevingne”s interview below. For more, be sure to visit W!
On her struggles with psoriasis:
“It only happened during Fashion Week! Which is, of course, the worst time of the year for me to be covered in scabs. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, and I”m sensitive. Kate [Moss] saw me before the Louis Vuitton show at 3 a.m., when I was being painted by people to cover the scabs. She said, “This is horrible! Why is this happening I need to help you.” She got me a doctor that afternoon; Kate gives really good advice.”
On her traits that make her different:
“In the beginning, I was thinking, “How do I set myself apart from the other girls” So many girls were taller, skinnier, prettier. And I”m not a girly girl at all – I didn”t get boobs until I was around 18! As a teenager, I kept thinking, “I”m so short, and I have no boobs – what do I do” Maybe that”s why I”ve been noticed. I treat the camera like a person – I gaze into it. Photos are a flat thing, and you need to put life into them.”
On her support system:
“Everyone worries about me. It”s hard for my family, and I know I have to be careful. People have to realize that I can take care of myself. I”ve done a great job so far.”
On her former career aspirations:
“I wanted to be either a musician or an actress. I wanted to be a Disney Channel star! I wanted to be Hannah Montana. They said no!”
