We Almost Forgot Cara Delevingne Is A Model While Watching The Met Gala

I'm not really used to seeing Cara Delevingne anymore unless it's on the big screen.

But, to be fair, since the model-turned-actress did get her start on the runway, it's only fitting she attended this year's Met Gala, right?

I think so, too.


This year's theme is Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, the first living designer since Yves Saint Laurent to be honored at the Upper East Side fashion soiree.

Andrew Bolton, curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute talked to Vogue about the designer and said, "By inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, recreation and hybridity, she has defined the aesthetics of our time."

Speaking of aesthetics, take a look at Cara's bold new look... and no, it's not in the name of fashion.

The actress is adding more roles to her repertoire, which is the reason for the dramatic change.

She is to play a cancer-stricken woman with one year to live in the emotional "Life In A Year" opposite Jaden Smith.

I usually associate Cara with John Green movie adaptations — though "Paper Towns" will never steer my heart away from my #1, "The Fault In Our Stars — I'm definitely curious to see how she takes this serious role.

I'm sure it'll be a topic of discussion as she makes the rounds at the Met Gala.

Speaking of which, here she is rockin' her look:

She keeps it somewhat simple, yet very silver with her straight-leg pants, open blazer and a pretty decent amount of glitter.

She didn't stray away from covering up her new look either, and major props for embracing the look off-screen.

Cara's definitely one to watch as she takes on new these new projects.

Anyone else ready for "Valerian" this summer, too? We'll definitely be there!
