Lipstick on, everything else off!
Cara Delevingne's latest YSL Beauty commercial, dubbed "The Rouge That Dresses Me," is here and, once again, the supermodel is stripping down to nothing but her birthday suit for the iconic beauty brand (following those risqué print ads). The 23-year-old is hardly shy when it comes to posing in the buff (or almost-buff) for high-end clients—ahem, Tom Ford, Mulberry, Burberry...the list goes on—but recently raised brows when she admitted that she hates going nude (more on that later).
Which means that, yes, this may be the last time we see Cara naked—so we'll just call this her last hurrah.
The supermodel opened up to the The Times about her rise in fashion and current career shift in an interview published Aug. 16, in which she said she is "not doing fashion work anymore." (Save for the last few campaigns for her current brand ambassadorships, we could assume.)
"I am a bit of a feminist and it makes me feel sick," she told the magazine. "It's horrible and it's disgusting. [We're talking about] young girls. You start when you are really young and you do, you get subjected to…not great stuff."
Going further, she said that her early days of modeling made her feel "a bit hollow" and "old."
Granted, Cara is 23 now, seemingly more comfortable in her own skin and, with her level of fame, able to make level-headed decisions about how she wants to appear in ads. And while she may be leaving the catwalk behind, she'll still be in the spotlight as an actress. With her first big feature Paper Towns under her belt, Delevingne is making a name for herself in Hollywood: She's slated to appear in next summer's Suicide Squad alongside Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Scott Eastwood.
Seems like Cara is forging her own path and taking a stand for what she believes in—which means this may be the last of her nude campaign days. (Those funny faces though? Still fair game.)
