Cara Delevingne Returns After Break to Become New Face of YSL

Cara Delevingne

Supermodel Cara Delevingne has returned to modelling after a brief hiatus as the new face for Yves Saint Laurent (YSL). She has shot for a campaign for “La Collection de Paris,” which previewed during the Paris Fashion Week.

Cara Delevingne makes a comeback to modelling after a small break with a monochrome spread for the campaign. It was rumoured that the supermodel with famous eyebrows had quit modelling for good. However, the model has denied quitting in a series of tweets that detail her fight with ‘self hatred’ and depression.

According to Us Weekly, she is now concentrating on her film career. She is starring in the upcoming “Suicide Squad” and was a part of the 2015 movie “Paper Towns.” The star revealed that her brief break up with the fashion industry can be attributed to negative effect it had on her mental and physical health. “I was, like, fight and flight for months. Just constantly on edge. It is a mental thing as well because if you hate yourself and your body and the way you look, it just gets worse and worse,” she said. “Modeling just made me feel a bit hollow after a while,” she added. “It didn’t make me grow at all as a human being. And I kind of forgot how young I was. I felt so old,” she revealed.

According to News.com.au, she tweeted that she does not blame anyone, certainly not the fashion industry. “I suffer from depression, was a model during a particularly rough patch of self hatred,” she tweeted. “I am so lucky for the work I get to do but I used to work to try and escape and just ended up completely exhausting myself,” she added.

The model has shared moments from her latest shoot with her fans on Instagram. In addition to YSL, Cara has starred in several high profile campaigns including the Chanel Eyewear campaign.
