Don’t Compare Cara Delevingne to Kate Moss

Naomi Campbell Kate Moss Friendship

Don’t call it a comparison. Naomi Campbell doesn’t want to hear it.

“Cara is Cara Delevingne,” the supermodel said. “Kate is Kate Moss. People are just saying that because she is the same height as Kate. But there is only going to be one Kate Moss. Kate is an icon.

That she is. But Campbell realizes that Delevingne could become an icon, just not yet. “Cara may become an icon: who knows long she wants to do it for? It has just begun for her and she is doing amazingly well.”

Perhaps because of her mentoring role on her modeling competition show, The Face, Campbell has been asked to speak to the younger model, to offer guidance. Not unlike her relationship with Moss. “I looked after her when she first started out; she lived with me in New York. She was amazing already: she had the book, she had the jobs, but I’d tell her what people were like, how she should be with certain people. We’re still good friends.”

Well, isn’t that nice.
