cara delevingne without makeup on the cover of love magazine

Cara Delevingne stars in the Autumn/Winter 2013 (fifth anniversary) issue of Love Magazine, showing off that lion finger tattoo she got from Rihanna‘s favorite artist. She’s also wearing Minnie Mouse ears, a chambray shirt and Billy Idol‘s favorite expression. As for those stiff blonde curls, we’re (genuinely) curious if they’re a visual reference to the Cowardly Lion.

But a fashion model (especially one verging on over-exposure) landing the cover of a fashion magazine isn’t exactly news, right?

Alas, every single time a remotely famous person announces they’ve gone without makeup it is, indeed, news. Earth shattering news. And we know this because Delevingne Instagrammed as much:

Grrrrr! My new @thelovemagazine cover! Thank you@kegrand @mertalas @macpiggott #nomakeup

Judging by those hashtags, Delevingne’s strangely human complexion can be attributed to a lack of makeup. Judging by those @ replies, she’s thankful to Love‘s editor in chief Katie Grand and power photogs Mert & Marcus, too.

The editorial also features a freckled Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Brit It Girl Edie Campbell and Georgia May Jagger; Huntington-Whiteley has that ideal “no makeup” but obvious makeup face, though Campbell and Jagger are clearly done up in fashion-y looks. They all wear bespoke Minnie ears.

Minnie Mouse, too, gets her own cover.
