British model Cara Delevingne is the face of Yves Saint Laurent new line, according to media reports
A regular fashion feature in New York, London and Milan, the 20-year-old British model was seen strutting down the catwalk at Yves Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney and John Galliano earlier this month at Paris Fashion Week.
The catwalk success of Cara Delevingne, whose strong eyebrows and snub nose are defining features, has Britain's media documenting her every move, drawing comparisons to the attention once garnered by fellow Briton, Kate Moss.
She is the granddaughter of former English Heritage chairman Sir Jocelyn Stevens, founder of the 1960s pirate radio station Radio Caroline, and grew up in the wealthy London suburb of Belgravia with her father, a property developer, and her mother, a personal shopper. Her sister Poppy is also a model.
She was named Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards last November and has continued to climb the ranks, rising to number 17 on models.com's Top 50 Models list from 25 before the start of this month's fashion season.
