Cara Delevingne Loves T-Shirts — Here Are 22 Of Her Sassiest Graphic Moments Ever

It Girl extraordinaire Care Delevingne is having a birthday! The oh-so-fabulous model turns 22 on August 12th, and she's already way more famous than most of us will ever be. So famous, in fact, that she can sleep through a Vogue interview and still wind up on the cover of British Vogue 's September issue a few months later.

What is it about Delevingne that's so bewitching? Might it be her penchant for making (and documenting via Instagram) hilarious faces? Her ability to smolder on camera? Her blatant hatred for her own modeling career? I'm going to argue that none of these things are the true key to Delevingne's success. What is it then? Her t-shirts! Girl has major t-shirt game.

Have you ever seen a model with such laid back off-duty style? Delevingne's street looks often exude an air of "I threw on the first clean thing I found" in a way that only really works for top models and insouciant teenage boys. And she always looks killer. What could be more timeless than a t-shirt and a pair of kicks? It could be 1999 or 2025 and Cara would always look modern. That's part of her charm.

To celebrate the fact that Delevingne's feeling 22 (cue Taylor Swift), I've ranked her 22 best t-shirt moments. Get it? 22 t-shirts for 22 years! Ok, let's do this.

22. Printed Tee and White Shorts

The hat and the shirt are on-point, but the saggy white shorts kill the mood.

21. Matching Set

Very trendy, but not quite unexpected enough to top the list.

20. With Quirky Sunnies

Love the juxtaposition between Delevingne and her bikini-clad companion here.

19. Layered Up

Adorable multi-texture layering with a black tee, flannel, and studded jacket.

18. Kiss and DVF

The Kiss shirt is a bit predictable, but DVF always makes for the best accessory.

17. Apology


16. Raccoon Eyes

This would be higher up on the list if it wasn't so terrifying.

15. Bart Simpson

Not sure if this counts as a t-shirt but come on — Bart Simpson!

14. Dirty Laundry

Looks like Delevingne needs to hire a laundry service.

13. Free the Nipple

So punk rock.

12. Cute as F*ck

11. Squeeze

The red lipstick and classy trousers are strange bedfellows with this raunchy tee but somehow it works.

10. Stating the Obvious

Just ask Plum Sykes.

9. Pineapple

"Bite me."

8. Cigarette and Skinnies

Smoking is wrong, kids. Pairing a relaxed burgundy tee with a shearling lined coat, skinny jeans, and a devil-may-care attitude, however, is oh so right.

7. Mirrored Sunnies with Chanel

Love the colored fabric (presumably leftover from Chanel's supermarket-themed runway show) trailing throughout her ponytail.

6. Black and White

High brow indeed, Delevingne. High brow indeed.

5. Glam D.A.R.E

What goes better with a D.A.R.E. shirt than a '60s bouffant?

4. Nasa

The most badass logo tee around.

3. Fast Food

Quick, somebody call Jeremy Scott!

2. Karl

Fashion royalty wearing fashion royalty.

1. Get Your Brown On

Do I need to explain this one?
