So far there are very good answers to why she is a successful model and how she got her start, but from an insider perspective, I would say that it is not the reason why she is so famous.

Cara Delevigne has a very likable personality. If you had to be stuck overnight in an airport with any model… kind of likability. I think she is a goof ball (I like that).

She seems more like a friend than a professional somebody who people could not talk to. I mean she cracks jokes and beat-boxes. Where other models have beauty as well as personality, they just don’t seem as approachable in the public eye. But that is just my 2 cents.
