Cara Delevingne has revealed how delighted she is at her first cover shoot for British Vogue.

The 20-year-old model fronts the March edition of the UK magazine, styled wearing a monochrome sleeveless tank-top with characteristically well-defined eyebrows on the red, white and blue themed shoot.

Cara, who has already modelled for big names such as Chanel and Burberry, and is loved for her cheeky behind-the-scenes Instagram shots, admits she’s overwhelmed by hitting the Vogue front cover.

She said: "Being asked to do a British Vogue cover - I didn't really believe it at first. I think it's something that as a kid you look up to so much.”

Speaking in a behind-the-scenes interview for the magazine, Cara explained how amazing it feels to be picked for the March edition.

 "It's one of the most shocking things that has ever happened to me I think. I just stood back and had to get someone to pinch me. I was like: 'What's going on?' I couldn't believe it."

“It’s March as well, which is such a big edition for fashion week – it’s the thick one!”

“It doesn’t sink in until you actually see it. I’m going to run out of the shop with 20 in my hand and give them out!”

The youngest of three sisters, (middle sister Poppy is also a model) Cara won Model of the Year in December at the British fashion awards and has been a hit in elite fashion circles and with fans thanks to her quirky personality and love of onesies – a girl after our own heart.
