After walking nearly every major catwalk at New York, London and Paris Fashion Week, Cara Delevingne has definitely emerged as fashion's new It Girl.

And with campaigns for Burberry, Chanel, H&M and DKNY under her fashionable belt, she's quickly becoming one of the most in demand models in the industry—even drawing comparisons to legendary supermodel Kate Moss.

But who exactly is the Brit beauty with bold and beautiful brows? Here's what you need to know about the stunning up-and-comer: 

1.She's a Real Winner: Long before Fashion Week, the team behind the British Fashion Awards recognized Delevingne's charm when they named the leggy lady Model of the Year last November. We're guessing 2013 is going to be another triumphant year for the rising star! 

2. Well-Connected: The model-of-the-moment counts some pretty high-profile pals among her inner circle, including BFF Rita Ora and her recent London Fashion Week buddy, Rihanna. But her childhood besties aren't too shabby either; she grew up hanging out with Georgia May Jagger and Lily Allen. Delevingne also fares well in her love life, having been linked to Harry Styles and Prince Harry. 

3. Beauty and the Beat: Like any good It girl, Delevingne marches to the beat of her own drum—and, as it turns out, she can actually play said drum! That's right, the catwalk queen is obsessed with drumming and has even admitted to having an electronic drum kit in her bedroom. 

4. Class Act: We know Delevingne's definitely comfortable in front of a camera, so it's no surprise she seamlessly transitioned into acting. She made her big screen debut in last year's Anna Karenina, taking on a small role as the beautiful Princess Sorokina opposite Keira Knightley

5. Trading Up: Don't write Delevingne off as just another pretty face! The model showed some serious business savvy back in December 2012 when she trademarked her name. Could the move be a sign the Brit beauty's gearing up to launch her own line? Given her spot-on street style, we're guessing a lot of gals would snap up her products as soon as they hit shelves.
