Cara Delevingne, Karl Lagerfeld, and Derek Blasberg Unite for V Magazine’s Space Age Issue

by Kristen Heinzinger

Leading up to her otherworldly movie, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Cara Delevingne fronts the Space Age issue of V Magazine alongside her co-star Dane DeHaan in a shot by Karl Lagerfeld. The Chanel muse gets chatty with Derek Blasberg about her most iconic beauty moments and talks her favorite Fall trends. Something else to look forward to when the issue hits newsstands May 1? The Gigi Journal! To tide you over until then, below are a few soundbites from Delevingne’s interview.

On doing her own stunts…
“When I hear that there’s an option that I can do it instead of a stunt person, I’m always like, ‘Please let me do it! Throw me off the building, I like that!’”

On the audition for the film…
“I had to prove myself, but not in a typical audition setting. Luc would say stuff like, “Make up a story in your head and describe it to me using no real words, just physicality and random sounds you make up.” Or, “Think of an animal and act it out and I have to guess what animal it is.”

On first meeting with director Luc Besson…
“I didn’t know we were meeting about this movie. Even my agents didn’t know it was for this, and it was clear this was a top-secret project. I was just told, “Luc wants to have brunch,” and I said, “Great, let’s do it.” But when we met, he explained it all with such enthusiasm that it was clear he’d been trying to do this for so long and it was a passion project.
