Watch out David Yurman and Kate Moss: 21-year-old model Cara Delevingne is the new face of the John Hardy line of handmade jewelry. Hardy’s first photo shoot with Delevingne took place this week in Bali, near the John Hardy workshop. Delevingne told WWD: “I kept trying to steal things,” she confessed. “I almost turned into a bit of a kleptomaniac, to be honest. I fell in love with this coil bracelet that wraps all around your arm. I tried to cement it to my arm. Or, I kept saying, ‘I can’t get this ring off, it’s too tight….It’s mine.’”
John Hardy’s creative director David Lipman said choosing Delevingne to represent the brand was an easy decision. “It’s not just a face. Cara is beyond a model…She’s irreverent and a free spirit.” The ad campaign, the first in three years for the John Hardy brand, will drop in October 2014.
