An Ode To Cara Delevingne’s Best Beauty Moments

An Ode To Cara Delevingne’s Best Beauty Moments

A world without Cara Delevingne would be a drab world indeed. Eyebrows would be thinner, catwalks would be tamer, and backstage beauty photos would be amiss many a stuck out tongue and crossed eye (otherwise known as the “Cara” face). Luckily, our favorite bushy-browed model was born twenty-two years ago, and has saved us all from a lifetime of over-plucking and smiling blandly for photos.

In celebration of Delevingne’s birthday, we’ve gathered eleven of her most stunning red carpet beauty moments. From bad ass braids to violet lips, click through for Cara Delevingne’s boldest, brightest beauty looks!
