Cara Delevingne is usually associated with prominent eyebrows, goofy facial expressions and brazen nudity from many of her photo shoots.
She is also linked to a string of famous romances with a wide array of music and film stars including Fast and the Furious actor Michelle Rodriguez, and now an on-again, off-again romance with 32-year-old American singer songwriter St Vincent.
In the past, Cara normally stays pretty coy on the subject but in a new interview with website News.com.au she has revealed that when dating she fancies herself as a “bit of a predator.”
I’m someone who loves to chase; I’m a bit of a predator but not in a weird way. But I do love a chase and I also love to be chased. It depends on how your chemistry works.”
It was first reported that Cara and musician St.Vincent, were together after they were spotted together at a BRIT Awards party in February, although it is thought that they had started dating in secret long before that. More recently the pair attended the star-studded Burberry party in LA together spending the entire evening at each other’s sides.
Recently the model is refuting claims she and St Vincent (whose real name is Anne ‘Annie’ Clark) have split stating “I am very much in love” she stated on Twitter.
I am very much in love ❤️

As well as opening up about her love life, Cara also talked about her very successful career. Despite being one of the most high-profile models in the world, she revealed that she never saw herself on the catwalk.
I never thought I’d be a model. I never wanted to be a model and I never thought people would actually want me to be a model. I was a feral kid, a big tomboy. Beauty wasn’t important at all and it still isn’t in a way.”
Though she’s been modelling professionally since the age of ten and currently holds the prestigious title as brand ambassador of Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent Beaute, and TAG Heuer, the 22-year-old star remains uncomfortable looking at these larger-than-life images.
Cara also revealed that she is a huge yoga fan, crediting the practise with helping her beat some of her demons. Admitting that she feels she had made a lot of mistakes in her life the model said:
Yoga saved my life, as did meditation. Before I found yoga I didn’t know how to be by myself or how to say no to people. I was very much a people pleaser. I never actually knew what I wanted in life until I discovered yoga and the importance of taking time for oneself. It really taught me how to connect to myself emotionally and how to love myself.”
