Cara began her modeling career at the age of 10. She signed with Storm Model Management in 2009 and was part of the Burberry spring/summer campaign in 2011. That same year, Cara made her first catwalk appearance at the London Fashion Week.

Other brands that Cara has modeled for include H&M, DKNY, Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent, Zara and Chanel. As a model, she has been featured on the cover of Vogue magazine and modeled for Victoria’s Secret.

In 2015, her career heated up when she landed a starring role in the psychological thriller The Face of an Angel based on the Amanda Knox murder, alongside Kate Beckinsale and Daniel Bruhl.

However, what brought Cara major attention was her starring role in Paper Towns, based on a book by John Greene, the author of The Fault in Our Stars.
