The actress, socialite and model Cara Delevingne may have taken time out from the catwalk to focus on her acting career, yet she still finds time to pose for the great French artist JR. These images, shot a couple of days ago on a Parisian rooftop demonstrate both Delevingne‘s continuing good taste (she's stepping out with one of our favourite music artists St.Vincent after all) and how ably JR can move between the favelas of Latin America and the upper reaches of European high society.

And it’s not Delevingne’s only artsy engagement. She's also been posing for the British portraitist and Damien Hirst associate, Jonathan Yeo recently. These paintings will go on show at The Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle in Denmark, 20 March – 30 June, as part of the artist's major career retrospective.

No news on JR’s intentions for Cara, but you can gain detailed insight into the kind of works he creates using photography, public art and social practice by buying our monograph, JR: Can Art Change the World?
