London Fashion Week - 'Don't Compare Me To Victoria Beckham!' Cara Delevingne Unhappy At Posh Spice Comparison20 February 2013
You’d think being compared to Victoria Beckham would be a compliment, but for Cara Delevingne it’s something that hasn’t gone down too well.
Delevingne has been storming London Fashion Week, appearing in seven catwalk shows and turning heads in all of them, the names she’s paraded for including Mulberry, Matthew Williamson, Giles Deacon, Burberry, Sibling, Issa and Peter Pilotto. However by night we are shown a different side to her, as she looked bleary-eyed and partied-hard while out with ex-boyfriend Harry Styles and Rita Ora for Muse’s Brit Awards concert at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.
But back to the Posh thing; Delevingne was considering auditioning for the role of Beckham for the musical of Viva Forever! Only to be warned off it by her agent. Now, according to The Sun, she’s glad she did. “Of course, I loved the Spice Girls. I loved Geri and Baby, but who liked Posh Spice?” she said according to the paper, adding “They said I looked like her and I said ‘That’s not cool, that’s really mean!’” Ouch! Given that Beckham’s at Fashion Week as well, we’re picturing a pretty frosty scene if the two come face to face. There’s no denying that the 20 year-old’s been winning fans elsewhere however, even if she doesn’t see herself modelling in the long term. "There's something about having to be pretty, it's just not me” she said. “I do sometimes feel like an alien."
