@ca­radelev­ingne If you’re ever in need of life guid­ance, just ask model and ac­tress Cara: ‘I give re­ally good ad­vice, but the best ad­vice I’ve been given is to live life to the fullest. Just re­mem­ber and ap­pre­ci­ate the fact you’re alive.’ Cara be­gan her mod­el­ling ca­reer aged 10, in a shoot for

Vogue Italia, and has gone on to be­come one of the most recog­nis­able faces in the in­dus­try. Now, dip­ping her toes into the world of Hol­ly­wood, Cara has starred in block­busters such as Sui­cide Squad and Va­le­rian and the City of a Thou­sand Plan­ets,

but there are still a few things on her bucket list. ‘I want to travel more, ex­pe­ri­ence the world through dif­fer­ent cul­tures and con­tinue my work with the UN, cam­paign­ing for refugee women’s ed­u­ca­tion.’ Cara talks beauty on page 2O7.

@badass­boz ‘There once lived a badass…’ are the five words Bo­zoma, chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer at En­deavor, would open her au­to­bi­og­ra­phy with. Born in the US, she moved to Ghana at six months old, be­fore spend­ing her teenage years in Colorado Springs. The ul­ti­mate ca­reer woman, she’s led mar­ket­ing for in­ter­na­tional brands such as Pep­siCo, Ap­ple and Uber, land­ing her on

Bill­board mag­a­zine’s

Top Women in Mu­sic and Fast Com­pany’s

100 Most Cre­ative Peo­ple lists. Who keeps her mo­ti­vated? ‘My daugh­ter, Lael, is a won­der woman in train­ing. She’s brave, ad­ven­tur­ous, kind, fash­ion­able and smart. I’m so in­spired to be an even bad­der won­der woman, be­cause I know she’s watch­ing me work!’ Bo­zoma teaches us how to per­fect our hus­tle on page 112.

@quentin_jones Un­usu­ally for an artist, pho­tog­ra­pher and di­rec­tor, Quentin’s strong­est sub­ject at school was in fact maths. But she’s al­ways been artis­tic: ‘I have painted and taken pic­tures my whole life, but fell into it pro­fes­sion­ally af­ter my MA at Cen­tral Saint Martins, mak­ing an­i­mated stop-mo­tion films for brands and mag­a­zines.’ Since then, one of her ca­reer high­lights has been di­rect­ing TV com­mer­cials: ‘Of­ten, peo­ple are sur­prised when the di­rec­tor Quentin turns up and is a woman, not the guy they were ex­pect­ing.’ The last won­der woman Quentin met was the mid­wife who de­liv­ered her youngest son Cas­sius this sum­mer: ‘She was an in­cred­i­ble lady called Con­nie who was so knowl­edge­able and calm in a re­ally stress­ful en­vi­ron­ment.’ Quentin shot our Florence Welch cover story on page 128.
