Hard to believe, but Cara Delevingne has finally landed her first solo American Vogue cover for their July issue. In yet another candid interview (seemingly the only way she does things), the model turned actress tells Rob Haskell where her head is at when it comes to the industry. “I’m not sure I understand what fashion is anymore,” she says. “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?”
She also talks about some of the darker days of her youth. “I smoked a lot of pot as a teenager, but I was completely mental with or without drugs,” she reveals. “I thought that if I wanted to act, I’d need to finish school, but I got so I couldn’t wake up in the morning. The worst thing was that I knew I was a lucky girl, and the fact that you would rather be dead . . . you just feel so guilty for those feelings, and it’s this vicious circle. Like, how dare I feel that way? So you just attack yourself some more.”
The new issue of Vogue hits stands on June 23rd. In the meantime, you can watch a video they’ve also put together a video with friends of Cara such as Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid, Zoolander, Kendall Jenner, and more sending their congrats to her on her accomplishment. It’s a Cara love fest. Catch it HERE.
To note: Anna Wintour gives a massive stamp of approval to the upcoming Broadway show Hamilton, which gets major cover line real estate. When’s that honorary Tony award coming her way?
