Cara Delevingne Insisted On Wearing Football Shorts When She Was A Bridesmaid

We all know Cara Delevingne is the goofiest model on Planet Fashion, but in the latest issue of Interview Magazine, we learn more about her tomboy tendencies. Did you know that the model of the model prefers playing a spot of footie to posing in a pair of high heels? And she even insisted on wearing sports shorts under her girlie frock when she was her auntie's bridesmaid. God love her!

The accompanying shoot sees a very different Cara Delevingne, however. The black-and-white shots show Cara looking more sultry than ever, trussed up in a sharp Burberry coat, sexy Falke stockings and killer Nina Ricci shoes while reclining around a swanky apartment sans bra. 

You can read the full interview and check out the shoot at www.interviewmagazine.com but for today's Delevingne dose, we bring you the best Cara quotes...

MODELLING CAN BE A NIGHTMARE…

I think when I started modeling three years ago, it was just a job, and I was so excited—everything was so new, so crazy. I didn't overthink anything; I just did it and enjoyed myself along the way. But after a few seasons, you get used to it, and there's a lot you actually have to think about, and, I don't know, it just makes you much more aware of what you look like and what other people think. It's a bit of a nightmare.

MARIO TESTINO IS LIKE MY FASHION PAPA…

The first campaign I did was Burberry, and that was Mario. We have a very, very close relationship. Every time I go on holiday, we seem to have the same schedule. We seem to go to the same places, whether that's Brazil or Ibiza. And so I always stay with him for a little bit. He's like my fashion papa.

THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS ONE F**KED-UP FAMILY...

I've made so many amazing friends with people who work in the industry. More photographers and the stylist-y people who work on set than the models, because they're such incredible people and they've experienced so much. This is, I think, the craziest industry. I mean, I love it. The fashion industry is like a big, f**ked-up dysfunctional family, but everyone's mad and amazing, and everyone's so different.

I LOVE PLAYING FOOTBALL

It's like if I go home and it's the summertime and I'm with all my friends and we're sitting in a park and someone's playing football, I'm totally there. I find that fun, to be playing with the boys in the mud and that kind of stuff. I'm still a tomboy.

I WORE FOOTBALL SHORTS TO BE A BRIDESMAID…

I had no interest in fashion when I was younger. I was such a tomboy. I loved soccer, as you call it, or sports in general. The first time I was a bridesmaid, to my auntie, I refused to go down the aisle without my football shorts underneath my dress. My mum would try to dress me up in dresses and I hated it!

I WAS JUST ME FOR THE H&M SHOW...

It was set in an apartment, and George Cortina and all those guys were like, "Pretend you're in your house; be yourself, be crazy." So I did the show—I was laughing, I went up to people, gave them a kiss on the cheek, grabbed flowers out of the vase, threw them at the photographers, spun around, just fun stuff—and then watching the video back, no one else was doing that, so it was just me!

Is it any wonder the world is going seven shades of crazy for CD? We think not. And if you need more proof, check out her finest fashion moments in the gallery below...
