Most often when we see Cara Delevingne it’s in Burberry’s classic trench coats and London Look makeup; or perhaps some tomboy ensemble of leather biker pants and buckle boots. That’s both a strength, a natural fit for her British ‘it’ girl status, and an inevitable result of being a face of the Burberry brand. But while we always love seeing Cara in her attitude-laden, effortless gear, this shoot for Vogue Nippon’s December 2011 issue shines a light on another persona that she plays equally well: the soft, delicate femme.
Just as the light seeps through the cloudy ocean sky does it infiltrate the sheer dresses and skirts, making them light-filled forms in front of Solve Sundsbo’s lens. The lace and feathered pieces in a palette of all white make Cara appear not just feminine, but positively angelic.
