‘It’s all about feel­ing comfy…’

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS -

CARA Delev­ingne be­lieves “male and fe­male” are no longer “op­po­sites”.

The 25-year-old model and ac­tress has ex­plained that she be­lieves the idea of what male and fe­male means has changed over the years, and they are no longer po­lar op­po­sites, as she says it’s all about “feel­ing com­fort­able” in your body.

Speak­ing specif­i­cally about uni­sex fash­ion, she said: “As I feel about life, be­ing male or fe­male is less ‘op­po­site’ now than it ever has been. I don’t think it’s nec­es­sar­ily about pick­ing some­thing that a man would wear.

“I think it’s about feel­ing com­fort­able whether it is mas­cu­line or fem­i­nine… It’s just about be­ing com­fort­able with what­ever you feel that day whether you de­cide to wear a ball gown or what­ever you think a man would wear.”

One uni­sex piece of cloth­ing the Pa­per Towns ac­tress does en­joy wear­ing is an over-the-top Christ­mas sweater, as she thinks ev­ery­one should “look stupid” while spend­ing the spe­cial day with their loved ones.

She added: “I’m very much pro Christ­mas jumpers – you are obliged at Christ­mas to look stupid be­cause you’re with your fam­ily. So, ev­ery­one should wear a Christ­mas jumper at some point.”

Mean­while, the Sui­cide Squad star has ad­mit­ted she feels less stress­ful in her job now that she’s act­ing as well as mod­el­ling, as de­spite be­ing much busier, it doesn’t feel like work be­cause she’s do­ing what she loves.

Speak­ing as part of her role as Jimmy Choo’s new Cruise cam­paign star, she said: “I feel a lot less busy only be­cause I’m fi­nally do­ing all the things I wanted to do.

“When I had just one job be­ing a model, it kind of felt quite mo­not­o­nous… not in a bad way, but it was just a lot more travel and a lot more stress on me.

“Be­ing able to cre­ate more and ex­press emo­tions are the most im­por­tant things for me, and it now doesn’t feel that I’m that busy at all be­cause I’m do­ing what I love.” – Bang Show­biz
