Does queen Delevingne no longer reign supreme? Let’s ask ‘wifey’ Rita Ora the answer to that one.
After the 20-year-old model of the moment fronted the spring and autumn 2013 DKNY ad campaigns, we were sure she was a shooin for the 2014 resort collection. Much to our surprise, however, we will not be eye to bushy-eye(brow) with the younger Delevingne for the release of the New York based company’s next advert.
Instead, we see alleged ‘best friend’, Rita Ora, hanging her head out of a signature yellow Manhattan cab in the middle of Times Square – where Delevingne was stationed just weeks prior.
Earlier this June, the duo had hosted a party for DKNY in London to help launch the brand’s new Artworks project. Throughout the course of the night, party-girl Delevingne joined her singing counterpart on stage for an unplanned performance that – as rumor has it – may have embarrassed the 22-year-old rockstar.
In hindsight, maybe Rita wasn’t embarrassed – but rather intimidated – literally (and figuratively) – standing in the shadow of her supermodel bestie. But now the tables have turned, and it may be time for young Delevingne to learn that what comes around goes around – as she wakes up with one less contract on her endless list of upcoming assignments.
