What to do after dominating international campaigns for Chanel, Topshop, Mulberry, Burberry, and Saint Laurent, starring in a John Green movie, singing in a short film alongside Pharrell, and making the internet your own personal playground? If you're Cara Delevingne—which you are, we all are—you start heading up men's fashion campaigns. Your first target: The SS15 DKNY #WeAreNYC campaign.
While this isn't the first time a woman is featured in a men's ad, it is something to talk about, because a) it's Cara and b) it's a powerful statement against traditional gender and femininity constructs. There isn't much setting Delevingne apart from her male counterparts: she has a natural, androgynous look, is wearing sneakers, and is assuming a commanding stance. Sure, she's front and center, but besides that, there's nothing spotlighting her sex. She's just a person, rocking a fly suit and tie, like a boss.
