When you see Cara Delevingne, you understand exactly why she has earned the role. Edgy and sultry herself, Delevingne is an inspiring long-time It girl and up-and-coming actress.
There is much to obsess over regarding the character of Margo, but there is even more to obsess over when it comes to Delevingne. Not only is she an actress, but she started out as a coveted model, and even has musical talents. Here is exactly what you need to know, and love, about Delevingne.
She has coined her modeling career as a "stepping stone" to acting and her acting career as a "hobby" in an interview with Vogue, which is clearly an understatement.
Her first modeling job was for Vogue Italia when she was just 10 years old. Since then, she has modeled for Burberry, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs… OK, basically everyone. She has also won Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, twice.
With such strong-willed character, it isn't much of a surprise that Delevingne will not settle for roles meant for just a pretty face. She said in an interview, "All the roles that I've done so far — I chose them because they are all strong female roles, or because they're interesting characters. I'd like to be like Meryl Streep, who manages to do so many different characters and do them all so well."

Her two older sisters have success associated with their names as well, as the middle child, Poppy is a model, and the oldest, Chloe, is a biomedical science graduate.
Delevingne is close friends with Taylor Swift, which is plain to see if you scroll through her Instagram, and also plain to see when you see that she starred in Swift’s "Bad Blood" music video.
She can sing, and has sung alongside Pharrell Williams; and if that wasn’t enough, she can also play the drums and guitar.

Delevingne is currently dating Annie Clark, or St. Vincent as she is widely known. Delevingne came out as bisexual and has spoken out against claims that it is “just a phase.” She said in an interview regarding her girlfriend, "Love is inspiring. True love comes in every form, whether it's what you do, whether you love yourself... true love is one of the most important things... it's what makes the world go round."
Delevingne has had three movies premiere before Paper Towns just this year, and she has Pan, a live-action Peter Pan adaptation coming up, where she plays a mermaid. She is also working on the superhero film Suicide Squad, where she plays villain June Moone.
