Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse And Kendall Jenner: London Fashion Week Dominated By Celebrity Models
When it comes to London Fashion Week it used to be the stars were sitting in the front row, but in 2014 all the action is on the runway as with celebrity models like Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Jourdan Dunn turn the fashion extravaganza into their own party.
Tweeting and Instagraming from backstage the models are sharing snaps as they get ready, mess around and generally show off how fabulous it really is to be so beautiful and successful. The instant access to the strictly a-list world has turned the latest string of models into fully fledged A Listers.
It doesn’t exactly hurt they they’re as cool off the catwalk as they are on it and can go from sitting in the front row to walking in a show with such ease it’s mind numbingly envy inducing.
Outside of fashion week these ladies are only hanging out at only the coolest clubs, hitting the festival circuit in their on trend ultra chic gear and dating some of the hottest stars on the planet.
Oh and they’re all BFFs, as well.
Not since the infamous supermodel of the early nineties, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and co have a group of gorgeous models swung so much influence. Even if the front rows are lacking, the girls have enough star power to put the show on the front page the next morning. Why else did Burberry end their show with personalised ponchos for each model, led by the queen of it all Cara Delevingne?
