Cara Delevingne is back — but apparently she never left? The multihyphenate, who in the past year has expressed a desire to move away from her modeling roots and instead focus on her acting career, was revealed on Wednesday as the face of the latest Saint Laurent campaign, for La Collection de Paris. After posting several of the images to her Instagram and Twitter accounts, which boast 28 million and five million followers, respectively, she tweeted a cryptic message, writing, “I never quit.”
As WWD reported on Wednesday, Delevingne has had an ongoing relationship with Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane, first appearing in his campaign for the French house in 2013. She’s spoken out about her fading interest in modeling, and in the last year has appeared in films such as “Paper Towns,” and “Pan.” She’ll be seen in “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” and “Suicide Squad” this summer. Of her decision to shift away from modeling, she previously told WWD, “I’m just going to be taking my time and doing things that I really care about, you know, parts that I really enjoy. But we’ll see. I don’t know. I never want to expect anything of the future, I just want to kind of try my best and see what happens.”
She hasn’t been entirely absent from the fashion world. In January, she — and her dog, Leo — sat front row at Chanel’s couture show in Paris. If her recent tweet is any declaration, perhaps more campaigns and catwalks are in her future.
