@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
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.
