With the buzz of the Suicide Squad cast photos taking over last week, we decided to give you gents some interesting pieces of trivia about blonde bombshell Margot Robbie, who plays the malevolent Harley Quinn.
This time, it only seems appropriate to shed some light on another female member of the criminally insane posse–the spellbinding Enchantress, played by none other than supermodel Cara Delevingne.
No stranger to the limelight, this British babe has been conquering catwalks, billboards, and magazine covers. By capitalizing on her spunky edge and feline ferociousness, she’s won the attention of high fashion labels like Burberry, Chanel, and DKNY. Local brand Penshoppe has even crowned her as one of their international endorsers. But fashion aside, she’s everywhere, and there are other more awesome things to learn about this current pop-culture phenom. We’ve listed eight of them below.
J-Law and Shailene Woodley better watch their backs!
With the popularity of YA adaptations getting thicker by the minute, it was only a matter of time before another John Green novel was turned into a silver screen moneymaker. Last year’s The Fault in Our Stars catapulted rising star Shailene Woodley into A-list status, and this year Cara is banking on being the next tween idol as she takes on the role of an enigmatic teenage rebel in the movie Paper Towns. And yes, it’s based on a John Green book of the same name. Go see it, if only for Cara.
She’s been a music video muse for one of today’s craziest rap groups, Die Antwoord
To call South African hip-hop ravers Die Antwoord weird would be an understatement. If you have yet to hear their infectious brand of dance music, it’s best you get on it now! The vid for their 2014 release entitled “Ugly Boy” showcases tons of gothic imagery, loads of blood, and celebrities like Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, burlesque goddess Dita Von Teese, and shock-rocker Marilyn Manson. The cherry on top of this cake of craziness: Cara D’s gorgeous mug, covered in face paint as she smokes a nicely rolled blunt. Thankfully, we have that music video for you right here.
She’s an unofficial Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Having walked the VS fashion shows for 2012 and 2013, it’s safe to assume that Ms. Delevingne doesn’t mind channeling her sultrier side. Although she has yet to earn her wings alongside stiffy-approved angels like Lily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel, Cara has got enough attitude to sashay down the same runway.
This gamer girl is generous with her voice.
She’s giving more videogame addicts reason to stay home, diddle with their remote controls, and piss off their girlfriends. Cara lent her voice to Grand Theft Auto V as the DJ of the Non-Stop-Pop FM radio station. So even when you’re hijacking hot rides, picking up hoes, and cruising down smooth asphalt in the cyber-world, Cara’s omnipresence can’t be escaped.
In her videogame DJ stint, she's got some pretty sensible life advice too: "This is your home for all the music you used to pretend not to like, back when you were trying to be cool. You weren't cool. Not ever. Nobody is. It's such a lame concept. It means staring into the middle distance and acting like you're constipated. It's not fun! Be happy! Not cool. Not constipated"
She enjoys getting wet in front of an audience.
If you’ve ever fantasized about Cara being a mythical sea creature, then you’ll be glad to know that she’s taken on the role of a mermaid in this year’s Pan. Don’t you just wish you guys could go skinny-dipping?
Her older sister is just as much a BAE as she is.
It seems that hotness runs in the family. Poppy Delevingne is also a heavy-hitter in the Brit fashion scene, and her and Cara are quite close as seen on their Instagram accounts (@caradelevingne and @poppydelevingne). Life is just unfair.
