Paper Towns

20th Century Fox

Cara Delevingne is a model and a movie star!

The official Paper Towns poster was released Thursday, and it shows a windswept Cara alongside co-star Nat Wolff. The film, based on John Green's young adult novel of the same name, centers on Margo (played by Delevingne) and Quentin (Wolff), two high school students who have grown apart.

When Margo unexpectedly pops back into Quentin's life, appearing at his window dressed as a ninja, she urges him to seek revenge. The next day, Quentin discovers Margo has disappeared, and he's left to decipher clues left behind to figure out the mystery of where she's gone.

Green, whose young adult. novel The Fault in Our Stars was made into the 2014 movie starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, tweeted about Delevingne's casting in September. "Cara Delevingne's audition blew everyone away (including me!)," he wrote, "and she understands Margo profoundly. I am so excited!"  

Paper Towns director Jake Schreier "seconded" Green's rave reviews of the Delevingne's audition, adding, "It was something special."

The British-born star had to take on an American accent for the role, which required some practice! "It's better when I have a few drinks, I'm sure," she quipped to E! News of her American English.

Delevingne made her acting debut last year in the British short film Timeless. She plays a mermaid in Pan, which hits theaters this summer, and she reportedly has a role in Zoolander 2. Yep, a source tells E! News Delevingne and fellow It Girl Karlie Kloss will appear alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in the highly-anticipated sequel.

Fierce! In the meantime, though, you can catch Paper Towns in theaters beginning on July 24.
