Cara Delevingne Shot By Karl Lagerfeld For Numéro September Cover - How Did The Model Become The Designer's No.1 Muse?

22 August 2013 by

It seems like the fashion world can't get enough of Cara Delevingne - and that includes its high priest Karl Lagerfeld. The Chanel and Fendi designer has completed yet another photoshoot with the bubbliest model on the catwalk, this time for the September issue of Numéro magazine. On the cover Cara is seen wearing a black Dior ensemble and staring down the lens of the camera with heavily made up eyes while brushing a tattooed hand against her face.

The monochrome image, which was shot against a black backdrop with one spotlight behind Cara, is one of three covers snapped by Lagerfeld for the latest Numéro - the other two star Ashleigh Good wearing Chanel Haute Couture and Nadja Bender wearing Gaultier Paris. However, there's no doubt in our minds which of the trio is Uncle Karl's favourite, as he's made quite a habit of featuring Brit supermodel Cara in campaigns and collections over the last year.

Cara and Karl previously worked together on Plastic Dreams (the in-house magazine of shoe giant Melissa). In fact, on the cover - the brainchild of Lagerfeld - the designer is seen standing over the 21-year-old with his hands on her shoulders, which looked particularly like he was anointing her as one of his new muses (or something like that).

A few months later and the pair were at it again, this time Cara appeared in Chanel's Autumn/ Winter 2013 film 'Women Only', directed by Lagerfeld, clutching a Karl doll. Cara has also been spotted with Karl figures and dolls in various images posted on her Instagram account. In one image the model puckers her lips and leans in for a kiss with her inanimate friend while in another she enjoys a "Karl sandwich" with the doll and the real Karl.
