Cara Delevingne Goes (Almost) Naked For New YSL Beauty Ad

Victoria Moorhouse


Don’t know what to wear with your new red lipstick? If you play it like Cara Delevingne, all you need is a blazer. And some serious exfoliant.

Despite saying she’s through with modeling, Cara slays it in her latest campaign for YSL Beauty, in which she’s splayed on a leather chair wearing nothing but a black jacket and a bold red lip. On Instagram, the brand captioned the snap: “A colour so bold you’d feel naked without it.” Clever, clever.

For someone so vocal about the pressures of the modeling world, Delevingne’s no stranger to stripping down to hawk a product or piece of clothing. Last year, she went nude in a pool of orchids for a Tom Ford perfume campaign, Stood Up (buck naked) to Skin Cancer for a Marc Jacobs initiative, and most famously, posed in the buff with Kate Moss for a buzzy Burberry trench coat campaign.

Still, if there’s anyone who can make the act of posing (almost) naked cool, it’s Cara.
