A Modern Romance: Cara Delevingne Stars Covers June 2018 Vogue's Royal Wedding Salute

Cara Delevingne is the Covers girl for Vogue UK June 2018 issue.

"A royal wedding is always an exciting time for Britain, but I must say it feels like there is something extra special about the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this month. For a start,
they land in a year when, on bad days at least, the country can feel like it is becoming ever more divided. Of course, the royal family invites plenty of diverse opinions itself these days, but at its simplest a wedding is a joyful union and a wonderful celebration of togetherness. And this one happens to star a truly fascinating bride."

"Why has Ms Markle struck such a chord with the British public since her engagement was announced at the end of last year? I suspect it is because she offers a really exciting new spin on what aristocracy can mean in the 21st century. A mixed-race – or as she prefers, bi-racial – woman from California, with a successful career under her belt and a proven track record as a campaigner for social change, Meghan Markle is… well, remarkable. When we watch her take her first steps into an ancient institution, she will be an embodiment of all that is modern. She stands up for diversity, for her gender, for equality. In short, she is a woman of today."

And how should Vogue mark this joyous occasion? Naturally it had to be through fashion. We took the nation’s favourite young supermodel, Cara Delevingne, and cast her in the most avant-garde of bridal tributes. "Modern Romance" proves that wearing a white dress on your big day can be anything but predictable. Sticking with the theme of modernity, Cara also took the time to write about some of the key milestones for her generation which no longer involve just going down the aisle.

Meanwhile, we chart the rise of Ms Markle as an astonishing fashion sales force who is setting the industry alight. Through her style choices, she could add £1 billion a year to fashion’s collective turnover, and perhaps even eclipse the Duchess of Cambridge. As I said, remarkable.
Speaking of industry power, earlier this year I was excited to spend a day with Caroline Rush and our fellow judges for the BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund award. Now in its 10th year, the fund not only provides one young designer with £200,000 and an invaluable yearlong mentorship scheme to accelerate their business, but also shines a spotlight on so many incredible British talents as they start to make their way in fashion.

I was very impressed. We met every designer shortlisted, and I was bowled over by how savvy they are. The old image of a designer as a creative who is unconcerned with the business side of things? Those days are gone. These young talents are so in tune with their business models, knowing exactly what their clients want from them and how to promote digitally. It’s a new world. It was great to work with Jourdan Dunn, who joined me on the judging panel this year and models the finalists’ work in the June issue – where you’ll also discover who won. Seeing this whole gang of young designers together made me think that British design is in a really good place. We should be thoroughly excited for the future.
