Cara Delevingne Says Her Modeling Career Isn’t Over: ‘I’m Not Retiring’
Delevingne told The Hollywood Reporter in the August 7th issues, “I’m not stopping modeling, I’m not retiring. I’m just doing film for the time being. Careers change and you develop and get older. I still have very close relationships with the people I used to work with. Maybe I’ll do fashion sometimes, but at the moment I have no time to do anything.”
The “it” girl parted ways with London-based agency Storm Models to focus primarily on her acting career back in June – and ever since, rumors have swirling that she was put on the “blacklist” by supermodel Kate Moss. Multiple outlets report that while it’s true that Delevingne is currently focusing on her acting career (she stars in Paper Towns, and has six upcoming films such as Suicide Squad and Pan), she also was feuding with Moss’ longtime friend and modeling goddess Naomi Campbell.
A Moss source told The Sun, “Kate has blacklisted Cara now. It’s very unfortunate and hopefully might be a temporary thing, but they’re definitely not friends at the moment.
“Kate wasn’t happy with Cara’s clash with Naomi and felt she should have treated her with more respect.”
However, according to Delevingne’s upcoming interview with THR, that doesn’t seem to be the entire truth and there’s no evidence at face value to prove otherwise.
As for what Chanel head honcho Karl Lagerfeld thinks of her career aspirations and transitions? Cara said, “He’s always known that I’ve wanted to act. He was very nice to put me in his fashion film,” referring to her short Chanel film Reincarnation with Pharrell Williams.“And he knew I wanted to do music so he let me do that as well. He’s been nothing but supportive.”
The 22-year-old recently made headlines for her “Good Day Sacramento” interview, in which the newscasters condescendingly asked if she’d “read the book [Paper Towns]” and called her Carla. She appropriately didn’t put up with their bullshit.
