Models Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner conjured up images of a modern-day, female rat pack (Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Peter Lawford, Dean Martin and Joey Bishop and founder Humphrey Bogart) at the British Summer Time Festival at Hyde Park in London on Saturday.
Next stop was Kendall’s brother-in-law Kanye West’s headliner performance at Glastonbury Festival in Somerset — about 140 miles away.
Cara Delevingne on Superhero Movies
Outspoken model and actor Cara Delevingne, who also stars in this summer’s teen romance ‘Paper Towns’. metaphorically stuck out her tongue at the comic book industry on the subject of ‘totally sexist’ superhero movies.
Delevingne is one of three girls in the upcoming DC’s ‘Suicide Squad’.
‘Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis. No one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute,’ critiques Delevingne.
‘The comments could cause tension at DC, given that Wonder Woman will be a stablemate of Delevingne’s character Enchantress in next year’s Suicide Squad,’ writes The Guardian.
Cara Delevingne’s Plum Sykes Vogue Interview
On a positive note:
“Cara makes everything look modern and right … a kind of young Coco, but free and not bourgeoise,” says Karl Lagerfeld. Burberry’s Christopher Bailey remarks on her “instinctive understanding of how to communicate, engage, and interact with her friends, followers, and fans.” The public loves seeing her goofy selfies on the Web. “When I make faces,” she tells me, “it’s because I don’t know what else to do,” adding that she feels silly taking pictures of herself trying too hard to look perfect. Her tendency to perform cartwheels backstage at shows is to dispel nerves and anxiety. The first time she opened the Burberry show, she says, “I freaked out.”
The Daily Mail reported minutes ago that Cara ‘displays the after-effects of a wild weekend as she jets out of London in low-key look’. Translated, Cara is exhausted — a key focus of the Vogue Plum Stykes interview. The girl sleeps all the time and everywhere, report her supporters and admirers.
“Every shoot I’ve done with her, she’s fallen asleep,” he tells me. “She slept for seven hours on one Mulberry shoot.” Tim has been pondering her Internet fame, too. “I have a theory that it’s to do with the fact that she looks like something from a Disney film. Disney really works well with that generation. She’s the Instagram Bambi.”
Fresh on the heels of Rob Haskell’s controversial Vogue July interview with Cara, the young superstar shared a tribute to her singer girlfriend St. Vincent on social media, posting this picture of a purple flag with a Sex And The City quote embroidered on it. It reads:
“Maybe some women aren’t mean(t) to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.”
Cara Delevingne’s Rob Haskell Vogue Interview
Vogue writer Rob Haskell turned sex therapist in his July cover story interview with Cara Delevingne. Haskell delved into the artist’s romantic relationships with both men and women, zeroing in on her current relationship with singer Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent. Delevingne responded: “I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days” before adding “And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
Nice, right? Cara continued, saying that while “women are what completely inspire” her, it’s men who prompt her sexy dreams. Like many creative women before her, Delevingne painted an honest portrait of her current sexual identity.
Haskell, who presumably has no training in sexual identity pounced, sharing that, “Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct.”
Mind you that Cara asked not one iota of advice from Haskell, who couldn’t resist offering her unsolicited and frankly condescending advice. How very male of him!!! “When I suggest to Cara that to trust a man, she might have to revise an old and stubborn idea of hers — that women are perenially troubled and therefore only women will accept her — her smile says she concedes the point.” Apparently, it doesn’t occur to Haskell that the notoriously spontaneous, authentic Delevingne may find him to be a total ass.
Activists are calling out Haskell’s words in an online petition to Anna Wintour at Vogue that already has about 17,000 signatures.
