Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn Cement Their Friendship With Matching Tattoos

 

Some best friends get matching necklaces to solidify their friendship.  Others get matching tattoos.  Can you guess which route Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn decided to take?

That’s right— the model BFFs took to Instagram on Monday to reveal that they had gotten matching ‘DD’ tattoos done by none other than Cara’s go-to tattoo artist, Bang Bang.  ”Throw some D’s on that… @bangbangnyc @caradelevingne #DDs,” wrote Jourdan alongside a photo of the girls’s fresh new ink— located on their right hip  in case you were wondering— to which Cara added: “So happy we got our DDs! Thank you @bangbangnyc #throwsomedsonthat #DDs4life.”

Your Guide to the Hottest Model-Designer Collaborations of the Season

There was a time not long ago— namely the lull between the fall of the ’90s supermodel and the rise of social media— when a model was simply meant to be seen and rarely heard.  There was no Instagram for them post gorgeous selfies, or Twitter for them share their sense of humor and point of view.  Hard to believe right? Thankfully, the wonderful world of social media has since exploded, offering today’s top models a platform to not only showcase their personalities, but also, and perhaps more importantly, build their own booming brands.

Now, more brand-driven than ever, today’s top models are putting their personal stamp on the very products they were hired to sell, offering us model fan gals a wide-range of supermodel-approved goods to choose from.  And while the model-turned-designer trend arguably started back in the mid-2000′s with Kate Moss designing for Topshop and Agyness Deyn for Doc Marten’s, the number of model/designer collaborations has since risen with such frequency that there very well may be more model collaborations on the market currently than those by actual designers and artists.

To start, there’s Karlie Kloss, who teamed up with Warby Parker to design a line of sunglasses launching today.  The capsule collection includes three insanely flattering frames (named Julia, Marple, and Clara), each with ombre lenses and a 1970s aesthetic. And, much like her sweet partnership with Momofuku Milk Bar, there’s a charity element: Sales of the $145 glasses will benefit Edible Schoolyard NYC, a nonprofit that encourages healthier eating in low-income public schools.

Cara Delevingne Designed a Capsule Collection for DKNY and She Wants YOU to Model It With Her

Teaming up with DKNY is nothing new for Cara Delevingne — not only has she strutted her stuff on its runway, but she’s also taken to the city’s streets to front its campaigns on numerous occasions.  So how does one top dancing on top of cabs and posing with A$AP Rocky and Jourdan Dunn? Easy, you design your own collection for the brand!

The London-born model and burgeoning actress is once again entering the design world with a 15 piece unisex capsule collection for the New York-based brand, slated to hit stores this November.  Of the partnership, Cara said in a statement, “When I first came to NYC when I was 15 years old and saw the DKNY mural on Houston Street, I was wowed. To me, DKNY captured the essence of New York and set trends for young people everywhere.”

The Au Naturale Beauty Products the Supermodels Can’t Get Enough Of

The days of choosing between all-natural, non-toxic beauty products and luxurious, effective formulas are officially behind us. Over the last few years, dozens of chic, organic skin-care and makeup lines have sprung up around the globe, garnering the attention of more than just the health conscious.  Models, and we’re talking lots of them, are already on board with these all-natural wonders, stocking up on everything from organic concealers and vegan lipsticks, to toxin-free sunscreens and anti-aging serums.  So really, the only dilemma these days is: Where do you start?

Among those brands capturing our attention (not to mention the models’) is Epicuren, which offers cutting edge formulas available in the cleanest and most natural way possible.  Chrissy Teigen is said to be just one of countless A-listers that turns to the brand’s ORAC Age Protect Serum for her daily dose of healthy skin protection.  Both vegan and cruelty free, this groundbreaking formula harnesses a variety of powerful, protecting antioxidants with extremely high ORAC values to fight free radicals, chronic inflammation and dehydration — otherwise known as the three major causes of aging.  Supermodels Karolina Kurkova and Marisa Miller are also said to be fans of the brand’s X-treme Cream Propolis and Active Sport Treat Sunscreens, which include such all-natural ingredients as nourishing Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil, Vitamin E, Green Tea Extract and Hawaiian Kukui Nut Oil.

WATCH: The First Look at Cara Delevingne’s TV Debut in “Timeless”

Aside from a brief appearance in 2012′s Anna Karenina and a short film for Karl Lagerfeld, we’ve yet to really see the true test of Cara Delevingne‘s acting chops.  That is, until now.

Having already conquered the world of modeling, the 21-year-old model is now beefing up her film CV with a leading role in “Playhouse Presents: Timeless,” a made-for-TV film airing on Britain’s Sky Arts network on June 19.

Making her TV debut, Cara plays Chloe, a young woman engaged to a soldier serving in Afghanistan who grows closer to her great grandmother (played by Sylvia Syms) who also lived through a similar situation — being separated from her partner during World War II.  The two women bond over love and loss, and are essentially the catalysts for what we’re sure is going to be a major tearjerker.  For the evidence, just check out the clip below, which shows the supermodel looking decidedly unglamorous as she laments her inability to get in touch with her fiance.  Needless to say, Cara’s got some theatrical talents and more than holds her own against Syms.
