Cara Delevingne has never been one to remain quiet. So it was only a matter of time before the model-turned-actress spoke out after The Sun published one of its notorious ‘tell-all’ articles relating to Cara’s no-show at the 2014 Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

The tabloid alleged that the 24-year-old model was deemed too ‘bloated’ to appear but according to VS casting director Edward Razek, the only reason Cara did not walk for a third year running was because of her commitment to filming Paper Towns.

???????????? ????????it’s shameless to discuss women’s bodies just to sell papers #bloated ❤️ @victoriassecret

In a letter sent to Delevingne (which she duly posted on Instagram), Razek explains how she was the top choice for the London show: “Contrary to The Sun’s claims, which they never bothered to fact check with me, Victoria’s Secret made every effort to have you in the London show. I know, because I was the one making the effort.”

He goes on to praise Cara, saying “You would have made the show better, as you do anything and everything you’re involved in” before inviting her “once again” to this year’s show which will be held in Paris on November 30.

Whether Cara will appear on the runway or in the audience is yet to be seen. If she does, she’ll be joining veteran Angels Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosia along with pals Kendall Jenner and the Hadid sisters.

Meanwhile, Cara’s acting career is taking off with her next film, period drama Tulip Fever, released in February 2017.
