Modelling since the age of 10, British-born Cara Delevingne has long been one of fashion’s most recognisable faces. The 26-year-old has since added actor, author, designer, musician and muse to her CV, and appears next in the Amazon fantasy series Carnival Row. We caught up with her between takes for her Dior Addict Stellar Shine shoot and video.
What’s your first memory about beauty?
My mum told me never to touch my eyebrows and it turned out for the best!
What’s your daily beauty ritual?
On an everyday basis, I try to keep my skin clean, protected and moisturised. After that, my beauty ritual is very dependent on what I’m working on that day.
What are three beauty products you always carry in your bag?
Moisturiser, lip balm and a hair brush.
First Dior Capture Youth Skincare, and now Dior Addict Lipstick. How does it feel to be a Dior beauty muse?
Dior has always been a brand that I admired, and I feel grateful to be included in the company of the other brand ambassadors I share the title with, like Natalie Portman, Bella Hadid and Charlize Theron.
What values do you share with Dior?
Creativity, high standards, audacity and above all, the desire to look forward and to go where no one expects to see us.
What inspires you the most about this latest collaboration with Dior?
I’m inspired by this collaboration because it inspires women to be bold.
What are three things you and Dior Addict Stellar Shine have in common?
Boldness, life, audacity.
Which is your favourite shade from this collection?
It’s definitely Be Dior for day and night!
What’s a normal day for you like?
Literally every day is different. The one thing I do every day is meditate as soon as I wake up.
What makes you laugh?
Viral videos on Instagram.
What makes you cry?
Sometimes the viral videos make me laugh so hard I cry.
You’re know for your activism and charitable work. Which are the causes you hold closest to your heart?
I’m currently feeling very passionate about youth and mental health. Both of those causes are extremely crucial to our future, so I really find it important to invest time into supporting them.
If you had a magic want, what would you wish for?
I’d love to be able to teleport from city to city, so I don’t have to get on another airplane!
And or the world?
Finally, what’s your dream holiday destination?
Anywhere with a beach.
Rise and Shine
Dior’s newest lip collection embodies elegance and attitude
Inspired by what Christian Dior called “the colour of happiness and femininity”, the new Dior Addict Stellar Shine features an enhanced formula and case decorated in pink lettering. Beeswax and lightweight oils provide hydration, comfort and shine while micro-pearls reflect light for added radiance. The 24 shades, softly scented with vanilla, come in three finishes: Glazed, Sparkle and Mirror. “The star of all pinks”, #976 Be Dior is a universally flattering fuchsia that embodies the tagline “Be Dior, Be Pink”.
