CARA DELEVINGNE has gone from supermodel to pop culture icon to designer – or more specifically a DKNY designer.

Of course she didn’t simply host some ho-hum in-store event and selfie through it. True to form – that showed off her abs in a bralet, blazer and matching track pants, and signature beanie – she stood on top of the famous 59th street Bloomingdales sign in New York City in the rain holding up a yellow, 3D sign that read #CaraD4DKNY. The line launched Wednesday, October 15th, and is available at DKNY stores, DKNY.COM, NET-A-PORTER, SELFRIDGES, HARRODS and HARVEY NICHOLS. So if you ID with Cara D’s urban, edgy and cheeky personal sense of style, head to one of these retailers for one of her personality pieces.
