CARA’S CAMPAIGN: Next month is Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month and Cara Delevingne is urging women everywhere to talk more openly about gynaecological issues. The model recently fronted the Lady Garden campaign, where the “Suicide Squad” actress is pictured wearing only a Lady Garden sweatshirt along with a sunflower.
Lady Garden is a campaign run by a group of British women including Gynaecological Cancer Fund founder Chloe Delevingne, whose mission is to “empower women everywhere to talk openly — without shyness or shame.”
The Lady Garden sweatshirt and joggers were designed by Simeon Farrar and are priced at 28 pounds, or $36, for each and are available for purchase at Topshop. Thirty percent of each sale will aid the Gynaecological Cancer Fund.
“I first became involved when my sister, Chloe, had a bit of a scare with a pre-cancerous cell,” Cara Delevingne said in a video. “She was very brave and spoke about it. It takes a lot of courage to talk about things like this. I think women need to be braver about it because otherwise people can be affected.
“I’m just so happy I can be a spokeswoman and really help women to feel free to talk about their bodies and talk about these kind of problems,” she added. “Everyone is beautiful and everyone deserves to be confident in themselves. And I love my lady garden. I’m going to be wearing my Lady Garden sweatshirt naked — because that’s how we should all be. In my birthday suit doing the gardening. My nickname for my lady garden is Randy Jackson.”
The 23-year-old has contributed to the charity in the past. Earlier this year she took part in the Lady Garden 5K in London’s Battersea Park running alongside Chloe.
“It’s our second year,” Gynaecological Cancer Fund cofounder Mika Simmons. “We really spread the word. I really hope that women that got these cancers are listening, become braver and talk about their bodies more.”
