But last night she took us all by surprise.
Joined by Kate Moss as stylish guests of honour at the Printemps Haussmann event in Paris, Cara left her tomboy kicks at home in favour of these ah-mazing heeled Burberry boots.
Rocking Burberry Prorsum’s peep-toe ankle booties in hand-painted deerskin with a moss green wool coat, leather trousers and a soft white knit, Cara oozed high fashion elegance and we’re loving her classy new vibe.
Each Burberry boot from this collection is a one-off design, and boasts intricate bespoke floral artwork all over. Cara’s particular pair have special horn-effect stiletto heels inspired by the buttons on the brand’s classic trench coat. How cool?!
While they may not be as comfy as her red carpet trainers, we reckon Cara should slip her feet into gorgeously girly shoe candy like this more often.
British style guru Kate also brought it in a Parisian-inspired look, consisting of a classic Breton stripe top with fluffy feather hem (WANT), black skinny jeans and a long naby military coat.
