You've seen the photos from Cara Delevingne's first La Perla campaign and now you can go behind the scenes on the shoot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Cara joins supermodels Liu Wen and Malgosia Bela in the ads, which showcase the lingerie brand's Spring Summer 2014 collection under the creative direction of Fabien Baron. The backstage footage includes interviews with La Perla's three model ambassadors, including Cara in her first lingerie campaign. She uses the film as an opportunity to discuss her passion for acting, revealing, "I've loved acting since I was four years old and I first did a play, I knew I wanted to be a performer." The 21-year-old also explained her approach to life, particularly in regards to the way she communicates with other people: I think the thing with words is that they can mean so much, but also mean nothing at all. I try to always mean what I say.
Last month Cara gave us a sneak peek at her new La Perla campaign via her Instagram account, and shortly after all the pics landed. The Londoner is seen posing in four different lingerie looks from the collection, including an embroidered camisole, a lace bustier and a matching sheer bra and knickers set. Her hair is styled loose and wavy and her smoky eye makeup ensures she smolders. In one of the images, where the supermodel wears a white one-piece, it looks as if she's just stepped in from a rainy downpour as her hair is soaking wet and scraped back in a ponytail. Since her role with La Perla was confirmed in October, Cara has been getting plenty of underwear action. She walked in the Victoria's Secret catwalk show for a second year in a row and goofed around backstage on an i-D magazine shoot by trying on Miranda Kerr's barely there Chanel bikini.
October 2013: She's more famous for the clothes that she wears than taking them off, but Cara Delevingne is set to star as the new face of lingerie label La Perla. The 21-year-old posted an image from her shoot, which was directed by duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott with make-up by Charlotte Tilbury. The soft focused photo features an elegant Delevingne in bra, knickers and a sheer top gazing side on into the camera as she showcases La Perla's new collection.
She tweeted, 'Shooting La Perla lingerie with the one and only Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott #whatmorecouldagirlwant'. Indeed!
Cara stars as the face of La Boo
This isn't the first time that Cara has flashed some flesh in the name of fashion, as last week she was revealed as the face of Japanese online mall La Boo and the campaign video sees her frolicking in red lingerie. The ecommerce site is aimed at teenage girls and stocks a range of Japanese labels alongside the likes of Topshop, and to highlight the fun personality of the brand Cara is seen getting dressed while dancing and pulling faces in her bedroom.
And lest we forget last year's Victoria's Secret show in which she starred alongside her bessie Jourdan Dunn, as well as Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel and Joan Smalls. Her lingerie loving pal Rihanna also performed at the event which is where the two are thought to have first struck up a friendship, which has since seen them partying on both sides of the Atlantic. Cara also made a cameo on this year's Victoria's Secret catwalk too.
Despite her recent modelling efforts, however, Cara has been concentrating on her film career of late with performances in Kids in Love and Michael Winterbottom's The Face of an Angel on the horizon.
