There’s simply no denying that Cara Delevingne is one of the industry’s hottest commodities — so hot, in fact, that you’ve probably already forgotten all about that alleged cocaine scandal she was involved in this past May. While such wrongdoing could be considered career suicide for most burgeoning models, if you’ve got starpower like Delevingne, it’s no biggie. Well, to most at least.
Despite starring in fall campaigns for Saint Laurent, DKNY, Mulberry, and more, it seems that H&M — the same high street giant that famously dropped Kate Moss after her own drug scandal — is doing what it can to distance itself from the 20-year-old.
According to The Sun on Sunday, a spokeswoman for H&M confirmed,
“She is not a model with us and I think there was a misunderstanding that she was the face of H&M. We just used her for the show.”
We imagine that many fashion brands would do some unspeakable things just to have the bold-browed model smizing for one of their campaigns, and with that said, we think that H&M is making another major statement on behalf of its ‘zero tolerance’ drug policy.
We have to say, while Delevingne has charmed us many times over and is always full of surprises, we can’t help but be a little perplexed that cutting ties with H&M is the only fallout from the scandal. Moss was dropped by the Swedish retailer, Burberry, and Chanel, and she’s Kate Moss. At the rate she’s Cara’s going, she could flash one of her signature smirks, and get away with murder.
