Cara Delevingne stowed away her crop tops, leather and beanies for one night, slipping into a more polished outfit to celebrate the September issue of W Magazine in London. The cover girl ingeniously put together an androgynous femme fatale ensemble, easily making this lace-and-metallic-combo one of the best Cara Delevingne looks to date.
The current it-girl of the modeling industry, also hailed as the next Kate Moss by fans and critics alike, was dressed in head-to-toe Saint Laurent, pairing a black lace blouse with a two-piece metallic pinstriped blazer-and-pants set. Cara left her lace top unbuttoned almost all the way to the bottom, letting a fair amount of lace peek through the tailored jungle of her suit. A pair of Saint Laurent black patent pointed toe pumps, gold jewelry and an interesting side braid completed her look.

The lovely contrast of solid plackets, collar, and cuffs against the soft lace is not exactly groundbreaking design, but what makes this top stand out is the choice of lace. We love the gracefulness of the floral design edging, which is thinner compared to most lace designs that tend to come off as too strong. We also love the fact that the lace looks practically like guipure, thanks to its bigger-than-usual net weaves.
