Beauty Talk: Cara Delevingne Shares Her Daily Beauty Ritual
Is pink feminine or masculine? Cara Delevingne says it is both. The model, singer and actress is the new face of Dior Addict Stellar Shine’s campaign, and she couldn’t be more perfect for the role. Bold, feisty and confident, Cara Delevingne embodies the versatility and empowerment of the colour pink—beyond the cliche of cute and pretty.
She tells us how it feels to be a Dior Beauty muse, what it’s like working with Peter Phillips, and her personal beauty secrets.
First Dior Capture Youth skincare, and now Dior Addict Lipstick. How does it feel to be a Dior Beauty muse?

How was it like to work with Peter Philips on set?
CD Peter is such a legend in the beauty industry. I love any opportunity to get to work with him.
Who do you think the "Be Dior. Be Pink" campaign you're in speaks to?

Which is your favourite shade from this collection?
CD My favourite shade is definitely “Be Dior” for day and night!
What is your daily beauty ritual?
CD On an everyday basis, I try to keep my skin clean, protected and moisturised. After that, my beauty ritual is very dependent on what I’m working on that day.
