Cara Delevingne on Advice From Kate Moss & Her Bad Girl Rep

British model Cara Delevingne is an unstoppable force: she continues to land campaign after campaign and her latest cover is nothing short of perfection. Cara graces the September 2013 issue cover of W magazine, as photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. Glaring in to the camera, Cara shows off her natural beauty in a white top, while her new lion tattoo on her finger shows a flicker of her usually playful personality. The model also sits down with the magazine for an interview, opening up on her experiences as a model and more.

On Kate Moss offering her advice:

“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 how she thought she wasn't like the other models:

"In the beginning, I was thinking, How do I set myself apart from the other girls? So many girls were taller, skinnier, and 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?."

On playing a part for the cameras: 

"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 bad girl reputation, Cara says people don't need to worry:

“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.”
