Cara Delevingne’s new film is actually a movie about her life

22 October 2016

WORDS BY Fashion Quarterly New Zealand

Cara Delevinge(H)

Cara’s rise to fame as a model and actress is the subject of a new documentary.

The film called The Cara Project takes a look at Cara Delevingne’s meteoric rise to fame – first as a model, then as a professional actress.

While details are limited as to what the film is about, what we know for sure is Cara’s life would definitely make for interesting viewing.

It might seem as if she hit supermodel status overnight,  but, as it turns out, the London-born Delevingne has been working it since she was 10-years-old.

Her career took off in 2009 – just a few short years later – after she was officially ‘discovered’ and signed for Storm by Sarah Doukas, the founder of Storm Model Management, who had previously discovered Kate Moss.

She fronted campaigns for all the major design labels including Burberry, Chanel, Fend and Saint Laurent as well as walking for every major fashion house.

In 2015 she broke into acting as a lead character in Paper Towns, and has since landed roles in Suicide Squad and Pan.

Cara will also star in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets set to be released in July 2017 alongside Rihanna, Clive Owen and Ethan Hawke.

On her decision to shift from modelling to acting, Cara previously told WWD “I’m just going to be taking my time and doing things that I really care about, you know, parts that I really enjoy. But we’ll see. I don’t know. I never want to expect anything of the future, I just want to kind of try my best and see what happens.”

The documentary has been acquired by Revolver Entertainment, will be released on DVD and will be available on-demand in the US and Canada.

Variety reports there are also plans to offer the documentary for sale at broadcasting trade shows in the coming months.
