Between modeling, acting—her film The Face of an Angel is out later this year—and writing and recording music, Cara Delevingne is, as she puts it, “a singing, dancing one-woman show.” And with this month’s launch of a handbag collection for Mulberry, the 22-year-old Brit can now add designing to her repertoire. The leather and calf-hair styles come in three sizes and convert from carryall to backpack. “The idea was to make a bag that would be beautiful and functional enough for everyone to have, keep, and love,” she says. Here, a few other things she fancies.
Yves Saint Laurent Beaute
"Specifically, Touche Eclat, which brightens your skin and makes you look like you’re alive; and Baby Doll mascara, which I’d wear all the time if I weren’t too lazy to apply it."
"I love animals. I was on a shoot recently with this cute little bunny, and they let me keep it. He or she is called Cecil. I don’t know the sex; with bunnies, it’s not obvious. I put it on Instagram, and in one night it got 30,000 followers."
My Mulberry Bag
"I go through different stages of loving different bags, but right now the camouflage calf-hair one is my favorite. It holds a beanie, my Pret A Manger smoothie, a fox sleep mask, a Polaroid camera, Listerine, rosewater hydrating mist, Strepsils, a hairbrush, deodorant, Beats headphones, my wallet, Daim bars, Berocca hangover cure, and gum. That’s a lot!"
"Modeling may keep you thin, but it doesn’t make you very strong. Kickboxing tightens my body and keeps me happy. It doesn’t hurt that I have a sexy trainer."
"I’ve always been obsessed with their shape and sound. I have seven; four are electric. The Little Martin is one of the smallest acoustic guitars you can get, and I take it everywhere. I also have a Fender Telecaster, and a hot-pink electric one that’s very heavy-metal."
"I’m reading The Tipping Point, about how life is made up of social epidemics. I have to read a lot of scripts and see a lot of films, so when I sit down with a book, I want it to be nonfiction. I want to fill my brain with knowledge, not lies."
"My family has been doing them since I was young, and if I’m not working, that’s how I like to spend my Sundays. The meal is roast chicken, our secret gravy, carrots, peas, and mashed potatoes with extra butter. We all cook together; I make the gravy."
