So, why am I showing you this editorial, shot by Alasdair McLellan for Purple Fashion Magazine‘s Fall/Winter 13/14 edition? First of all, I really like Cara Delevingne’s face. Hmmm, that came out kind of weird… I think she has very striking features. Yep, that’s better. Then I really like the slightly defiant expression she’s sporting throughout the shoot. She isn’t trying to be sexy or to look older than she is. She just looks like the teenager she is (wearing clothes a normal teenager wouldn’t possibly be able to afford, but that, of course, is totally besides the point). She looks sulky, somehow uneasy with the world, insecure but very much thinking that she just knows everything better than any old adult trying to explain her the world. In some of the pictures, she almost seems kind of shy, but never submissive or the object of a leering audience’s attention. So, well done, Cara and Purple Fashion Magazine.CARA DELEVINGNE BY ALASDAIR MCLELLAN FOR PURPLE FASHION MAGAZINE FW 13.14_2Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013-001_1Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013-003Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013-004Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013-005Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013-006Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013-007Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013-008Cara Delevingne Purple Fashion Magazine FW 2013-009Cara Delevingne shot by Alasdair McLellan
