Marc Jacobs Called Cara Delevingne a Dwarf

Louis Vuitton - Backstage - PFW F/W 2013

Cara Delevingne, model of many faces, catapulted into stardom during September’s fashion weeks — even reaching a seemingly impenetrable point where she was comfortable enough to tell glossies that she was getting a bit tired of modeling. She was crownedLondon’s top model for her catwalk appearances at their fall fashion week; and in New York and Paris, walked for Marc Jacobs at

his own label and Louis Vuitton. But before she cemented her position as the fashion world’s darling, Jacobs —  the fashion designer with a penchant for wearing pajamas in public —  was allegedly not a fan of Delevingne. Or, at the very least, of her five-foot-nine height. According to an interview with the Sunday Times StyleLove editor Katie Grand, who worked closely with the designer for his show castings, shared“I was trying to get her in the show, but it was the show in which everyone was very tall and very long … I remember Marc looking at me and saying, ‘Why is that dwarf in here?’ and me being devastated.” Jacobs then proceeded to drop Delevingne from his autumn/winter 2012–2013 show.
