Cara D goes to Rihanna for advice

The British model reveals the celebs she goes to for life wisdom…

It’s highly likely that right now, British model Cara Delevingne is in celebration mode, having just turned 21. But lately the supermodel hasn’t exactly had that much to be excited about. Firstly, her “wifey” Rita Ora publicly distanced herself from Cara and her partying ways, and secondly, her huge modelling contract with clothing chain H&M was axed after pictures of her dropping a bag of white powder (that looked suspiciously like drugs) began circulating earlier this year.

So who does Cara turn to in tough times for life advice? Rihanna. Yes, the singer with an Instagram feed that almost qualifies as soft-porn. Cara told W Magazine that after a trip to Greece with her sister Poppy she felt sad and lonely. “I called Rihanna. She said ‘It’s easy to drown yourself in work. That’s a form of escapism. So, if you’re alone and you want to cry, cry.’ And I did. But by then, it was time to leave and get back to my life.”

We’re surprised; they’re some pretty sweet words of wisdom RiRi. It proves their friendship runs a lot deeper than just lavish parties on luxury boats together. Maybe?!

But Rihanna isn’t the only star that Cara turns to for advice. Modelling veteran Kate Moss also has plenty of wisdom to impart. Cara suffers from psoriasis, where her skin develops red patches when she’s nervous, stressed or angry. Seeing as she was booked in over 40 shows during the spring/summer international fashion weeks, as well as appearing in campaigns for brands like Mulberry, Fendi and more, we can assume she’s pretty stressed all the time.

“It only happened during Fashion Week. Which is, of course, the worst time of the year for me to be covered in scabs. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, and I’m sensitive,” she told W Magazine. “Kate [Moss] saw me before the Louis Vuitton show at 3am, when I was being painted by people to cover the scabs. She said, ‘This is horrible! Why is this happening? I need to help you.’ She got me a doctor that afternoon; Kate gives really good advice.”

Kate and Cara have a lot in common, Kate was also ditched from many lucrative modelling contracts when she was photographed snorting cocaine in 2005. So, who would you prefer life advice from – Kate Moss or Rihanna?
