Born under the sign of Leo in London in 1992, Cara is the new ruling queen of the media jungle, the It Girl spokesperson for the online generation, and the top fashion model of our day. What is most refreshing about her is the way she navigates so cooly through these high-pressure worlds, with her indomitable take-me-as-I-am élan.
Before Cara, top models stared out from magazine covers and walked down catwalks. By just being herself, she doesn’t just give us another pretty picture, but a whole, extraordinary, irreverent and gloriously gorgeous package. She is a true path-breaker, who, like TAG Heuer, pushes past conventions and limits with creativity and passion, and never cracks under pressure. She perfectly embodies the core values of the Swiss brand.
TAG Heuer held Cara Delevingne’s “Welcome to the TAG Heuer Family” fête in the Salle Melpomène, the most beautiful room in the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris. After all, where other than Paris, on the eve of Fashion Week, could such a celebration be held? The catwalk princess was positively radiant and at her cheeky best as she charmed the 150 journalists and VIPs in attendance.
The exhibition space, named after the Greek muse of tragedy, was magically transformed for the occasion into a theatre of antiquity, with the solemnity of a red carpet experience and the unexpected presence of wildness. Cara, unafraid of the muse’s spell, showed her impish tomboy side as she strode boldly down the aisle, gliding around … a lion. Yes, lion, like the one tattooed on her index finger, her emblem — with floating mane and graceful gait perfectly matching Cara’s. The audience was stunned into silence; no one had expected it, or seen anything like it.
