Cara Delevingne’s achievements were entered into the fashion world Hall of Fame as she was named model of the year at the British Fashion Awards.

She is the big-browed model whose career has gone from strength to strength since she first appeared as the face of Burberry in 2010.

Since then, Cara Delevingne has been shot by Mario Testino, walked the runway for Oscar de la Renta, Fendi and Stella McCartney, and posed as the face of Chanel.

Last month Cara Delevingne walked in the Victoria’s Secret show as one of the lingerie brand’s Angels, and she has ticked the High Street boxes too, with ad campaigns for H&M and Zara under her belt.

The BFA said that Cara Delevingne picked up the Model award in recognition of her contribution to the international fashion scene over the past year.

“Cara’s unique sense of style and flair in front of the camera has made her one of the most prominent names in fashion, walking in an impressive 31 shows in September after being described as the star face of autumn/winter 13 by British Vogue,” they said.


The 20-year-old model, who also bagged a small role in this year’s remake of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, has not stopped working in 2012 – most recently covering this month’s i-D magazine, where she posed with a tarantula perching on her face.
