Step Inside Supermodel Cara Delevingne’s Delightfully Dizzying Los Angeles Pad
Fabulous genes usually are not the one inheritance that supermodel and actress Cara Delevingne obtained from her mom, Pandora. “She used to inform us, ‘Should you say you’re bored, then you’re boring,’ ” remembers Cara, the youngest of the three Delevingne sisters. That kernel of knowledge clearly caught—Cara Delevingne is something however boring, as her non-public Los Angeles pleasure dome ably attests. The home seems like Saint-Tropez meets Coney Island meets Cotswolds cottage meets Monte Carlo meets butch leather-based bar. It’s a heady brew, to make sure, however Delevingne takes all of it in stride.
“My work requires me to placed on many various hats and costumes. I like slipping into these varied characters, so I needed my residence to mirror a lot of totally different themes and moods,” says the unapologetic voluptuary.
Architect Nicolò Bini of Line Structure, Delevingne’s confederate/enabler in ornamental extravagance (see AD, September 2019), fulfilled his shopper’s mandate with gusto. First there’s the character theme, explicated in numerous design gestures: partitions sheathed in a Gucci wallpaper of overscaled herons; a large snake carpet within the billiards room and a climbing-leopard carpet on the stair to the upper-floor enjoyable home; a flock of chicken sculptures by Mexican artist Sergio Bustamante; and a king’s ransom in ferns, palms, topiaries, and different houseplants.
Then there’s the fun-and-games theme, represented by a tented poker site; a jolly ball pit; a show wall of kooky hats and a fancy dress room for dress-up events; and two trampolines set into the bottom close to the floaty-stocked pool. “I like video games—charades, beer pong, poker, Playing cards Towards Humanity, tug-of-war, no matter feels enjoyable. When my associates come over, the home turns into an impediment course. It’s like an indoor/out of doors playground by means of Alice in Wonderland,” Delevingne observes. “If I’m having a foul day, I simply hop within the ball pit. You possibly can’t actually cry in a ball pit,” she provides.
The white-brick residence, nominally English-country fashion, was in-built 1941 for members of the Von der Ahe household, founders of the Vons grocery store chain. A deeply non secular clan, the Von der Ahes are mentioned to have hosted Pope John Paul II on the home when he visited L.A. in 1987. It’s unclear what His Holiness would have made from Delevingne’s vagina tunnel, a secret passageway hid behind a low, painted panel, which leads from the lounge to an adjoining bunk room. One enters the so-called rebirth canal via a vulval delicate sculpture (assume Judy Chicago on acid) after which proceeds to crawl out of a spherical washing-machine door suggestive of a rectum.
