Cara Delevingne - Cara Delevingne branded a 'dwarf' by Marc Jacobs

Cara Delevingne was branded a ''dwarf'' by Marc Jacobs.

The 20-year-old model hasn't always seen eye-to-eye with the fashion designer as he once banned her from appearing in his autumn/winter 2012-13 shows because he thought she was too short and looked odd amongst his other models.

Speaking in an interview with Sunday Times Style, Katie Grand - who helps Jacobs decide which models to choose - said: ''I was trying to get her [Cara] in the show, but it was the show in which everyone was very tall and very long.

''I remember Marc looking at me and saying, 'Why is that dwarf in here?', and me being devastated.

''I apologised to her afterwards and made up for it by casting the model in all her key shows and shoots.''

The 5 ft 9 model was cast for both Jacobs' eponymous label and Louis Vuitton, for whom he is creative director, back in March and has now become one of his favourite models because she has ''great energy'' and is a good role model for other girls.

Speaking recently, he said: ''She's a silly goose. She has a great energy. She turned up to the Vuitton show wearing a zebra outfit from 'Madagascar', a onesie. She'd been traipsing round Paris all evening in it, you got to love a girl like that.

''It's rare in life that you meet a person who doesn't care. It sets a good example.''
