Cara Delev­ingne may be tak­ing the fash­ion world by storm – but she’s only the lat­est in a long line of...

SHE’S been on the mod­el­ling cir­cuit less than a year but Cara Delev­ingne is al­ready be­ing touted as the new Kate Moss.

The 20-year-old was the dar­ling of this month’s Lon­don Fash­ion Week as she staked her claim to be­com­ing the most suc­cess­ful su­per­model of them ALL.

Some in­dus­try ex­perts reckon she could eas­ily go on to earn over £100m – and even more than that if she makes it in the movies, too.

Burberry, Top­shop Unique, Peter Pilotto and Issa Lon­don all hired the pixie-like cutie to strut her stuff at their shows last week, and she de­lighted pho­tog­ra­phers and en­chanted crit­ics.


But de­spite her pop­u­lar­ity the Lon­don-born lass finds it hard be­ing com­pared to Croy­don girl Kate Moss.

Cara– grand­daugh­ter of Sir Jo­ce­lyn Stevens, the founder of the 60s pi­rate ra­dio sta­tion, Ra­dio Caro­line – said: “I just don’t think I’m at all like her, no-one can ever be her. She’s in­cred­i­ble, she’s a su­per­model.

“I am very lucky to be where I am now but I want to do other things as well – even be­ing men­tioned in the same sen­tence as her is amaz­ing, it’s just so weird.”

Fash­ion in­sid­ers say Cara could “eas­ily” earn more than the likes of Kate Moss – with £45m in the bank – and Naomi Camp­bell, with £29m.

One said: “That is said with ab­so­lutely with no dis­re­spect to Kate and Naomi, but they are from a dif­fer­ent age.

“The wages are even big­ger for top models now than in Kate and Naomi’s day, and they were the pace­set­ters that put models’ money into the strato­sphere in the first place.

“Trust me, that lady will be sh*tting the equiv­a­lent of golden eggs! £100m? Eas­ily. Eas­ily!”
