Model Cara Delevingne says her profession of modelling “destroyed” her because she felt she was forced to follow the stereotypical perception of female beauty, which she believed was “not genuine”.

“As a model I played the part of what I thought society wanted me to be as a woman. That’s why that part of modelling destroyed me. It wasn’t fashion’s fault,” Delevingne told telegraph.co.uk.

“It was me getting successful from playing a part that then felt… not exactly not genuine, but this stereotypical idea of female beauty. What I saw as being feminine: that girlie, femme-fatale, pretty lipstick type girl,” she added.
