Cara Delevingne Chanel Karl Lagerfeld Bride

Cara Delevingne. The name itself has become ubiquitous, and the model, who once graced the pages of ASOS, is now the face of a fashion era. 

Love her or not, there's no denying her ecclectic and excitable persona has earned her supermodel status. Such is her enormous influence that Karl Lagerfeld made her his muse for his first show for Chanel. 

Delevingne opened and closed the show, which was styled as a nightclub, and all eyes were on...her feet. 

To see models in Chanel couture walking in trainers was fairly astounding. Do I love it? There's tulle and diamant√©, but too 'commuter chic' for me. Nevertheless, it's been an impressive stunt and I look forward to seeing fashionistas strutting their stuff in similar creations... 

My eyes, however, were drawn to Cara's head in her closing walk in the bridal piece. The feathers are striking and elegant and absolutely perfect for an autumn/winter wedding or event. The curve is flattering and demure, but it's a bold statement piece.

The dress was a world away from the one she modelled in 2013, where feathers also made an appearance. The gothic was replaced by skater simplicity and the vintage superseded by ultra-modernity.

So ladies, the question is: which one do you prefer?
