Cara Delevingne: model, actress and now Champion of Girl Up.

Adding another title to her repertoire, it was announced two days ago that Delevingne would become the new spokesperson for the United Nations Foundation's campaign to encourage girls to take action and empower them to become future leaders around the world.

The Girl Up campaign, which straddles over 85 countries, aims to reach girls in places where it is hardest being a woman, so Cara's international following will no doubt help to spread the campaign's tentacles across the globe.

Alongside this announcement, Cara has launched the sale of a t-shirt line in partnership with Prinkshop, with all post-production proceeds going to Girl Up.

Since being signed to Storm at 17-years-old, her rise has been meteoric. An international model with an Instagram following of over 34 million, Cara has also proved herself as a versatile actor, with her next film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, due to come out in 2017.

Here are 5 other times Cara has been a force for good:

1) When she spoke up about her depression and mental health issues on Twitter.

2) When she challenged the conventional norms of being a model by showing us her love for fast food

3) When she opened up about her battle with the skin condition, chronic psoriasis.

4) When she auctioned her personal Tag Heuer Signature Edition Carrera watch on eBay and raised $14,430 for Oxford's Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU), after being moved by the killing of Cecil the Lion in 2015.

5) When she flashed her 'lady garden' to raise awareness about gynecological cancer in partnership with Topshop.

As Melissa Kilby, director of Girl Up said on why Cara was selected to front this campaign: 'She is fearless, she is strong and she is empowered.'

We couldn't agree more.
