Cara Delevingne Talks Rihanna & Victoria's Secret at the British Fashion Awards 2012: VIDEO INTERVIEW

28 November 2012 by

She's the model of the moment, the funnest face in fashion and the girl everyone wants to be mates with. We are, of course, talking about Cara Delevingne who scooped the Model of the Year Award at last night's British Fashion Awards 2012. Grazia Daily was on the red carpet to chat to the blonde beauty, dressed in head-to-toe Burberry, before she scooped her gong - witness her excitement in the video above. After the ceremony, with the addition of a shiny new award, we took the chance to grab more chats with C-Delz and discussed everything from hanging out with Rihanna to walking for Victoria's Secret...

Grazia Daily: How does it feel to be Model of the Year?

Cara Delevingne: I'm speechless. It's completley mad. It's only just starting to sink in. When they say your name, it's like one of those Zoolander moments when you think they've said the wrong name. It's out of this world. I never thought it would happen.

Grazia Daily: How will you be celebrating?

Cara Delevingne: I've got to go to Miami early next morning so we'll see! It's nice to have a good dance with friends. Everyone in there I haven't seen in a long time and they're like family so it'll be fun.

Grazia Daily: What are you doing in Miami?

Cara Delevingne: I can't tell you but it's a job...

Grazia Daily: We've seen you all over the catwalks - which show was your highlight?

Cara Delevingne: Oh wow, they're all absolutley amazing. Doing any show is pretty crazy because they're all so different. Doing Victoria's Secret was pretty special. It wasn't fashion week but it was a whole other scale. The fact that I was even asked to do it was completley insane. Every day, I thank anyone for anything that's happened to me.

Grazia Daily: And you met Justin Bieber...

Cara Delevingne: My highlight!

Grazia Daily: And Rihanna.

Cara Delevingne: Oh yeah, THAT was my highlight!

Grazia Daily: You've been hanging out with her a bit recently...

Cara Delevingne: Yeah, she's so sweet. She's calling me a rockstar and I was like, 'But you're Rihanna! You're mental. You're amazing.'

Grazia Daily: Did you take any clothes or just style advice from her?

Cara Delevingne: Oh my God, I'm always taking her style advice, but no clothes. One day, one day!

Grazia Daily: We've also seen you with Azealia Banks and Rita Ora - is this your move into the music world?

Cara Delevingne: I love music so I bond with these kind of musicians. They're all such great people. I love to beatbox and have been doing it before I even knew what it was. One day, I'll give you a preview!

Cara Delevingne: the funnest girl in fashion

Grazia Daily: How would you describe your style?

Cara Delevingne: Tomboy and casual. I dress up for shoots so I like to be comfy but also confident otherwise you have to keep readjusting yourself. I've been a tomboy my whole life, I always loved Action Men not Barbies.

Grazia Daily: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Cara Delevingne: I want to be in movies, directing movies, writing movies, music... I don't know. Anything I can really, I just have to try and make it happen.

Grazia Daily: What would be your dream movie role?

Cara Delevingne: Ooh, I'd love to be in a movie with Meryl Streep or Martin Scorsese. There are so many different things I want to do, maybe like a possessed child or an evil something... I don't know!

Grazia Daily: There are many Twitter accounts for your different body parts, but which is your favourite?

Cara Delevingne: I think @CarasThighGap is pretty funny or @CarasBogEye. That's always good. They're all really nice girls aswell. I followed a few because it was a bit of fun and then they direct message me. They're just sweet fans and they're now like, 'we've found a whole family in your body parts.' It's quite crazy.

Grazia Daily: Speaking of which, we're obsessed with your brows. What's your tip for keeping them so groomed?

Cara Delevingne: They're not. I just let them be. I don't try and tame them, the wild beasts that they are. Just a little bit of eyebrow gel. Are they not drooping right now? Usually they droop a little bit.

Grazia Daily: They're looking good. And we love your many expressions on Instagram. Are you tempted to a pull face on the catwalk?

Cara Delevingne: I wish. One day, someone will let me but I have to work my way up to doing that.

Finally, what's top of your Christmas wishlist?

Cara Delevingne: A holiday. For sure.

Grazia Daily: Lord knows you deserve one!
