Cara Delevingne does not care what people have to say!
The model and actress has spoken out in her own defense after her faux pas during the Formula One British Grand Prix over the weekend. The 30-year-old had snubbed the well-known former n racing driver turned broadcaster, Martin Brundle, when he asked for a chat while m covering the live action, which Max Verstappen won.
Cara Delevingne Has Shared Her Side Of The Story Amid Martin Brundle Brush Off
Sunday, July 9, 2023, might just be an unforgettable date for Delevingne, as she experienced an awkward moment when she turned Brundle away. The situation started when a security aide told the British broadcaster that the supermodel did not “want to talk” when he approached her with a Sky Sports F1 microphone.
The 64-year-old maintained his stance, stating, “That’s the deal now, everybody talks on the grid.” Delevingne, whom Daily Mail noted paired a black bra with a matching trouser suit and a baseball cap, promptly retorted, “I can’t hear anything, sorry.”
She then gave a firm “no,” shook her head, before she repeated “no.” A visibly frustrated Brundle then told the two-time Model of the Year, “the deal is everybody has to speak on the grid,” adding with a sarcastic tinge:
“Okay, well, I’m sure it would have been extremely interesting.”
Later on Sunday, the fashion contributor took to Twitter to explain exactly what happened at the event, starting with a response to a tweet that read:
“At this point, Martin Brundle is just doing it to manufacture the moment for the controversy of it all. You can clearly see the PR rep tell him “no” and shake his head when he goes up towards Cara Delevingne. He had an out and he chose not to take it to make a statement.”
Delevingne quoted the tweet with a response that read, “I was told to say no so I did. Thank you for seeing both sides xxx.” Where it got interesting was when she followed up with another statement, tweeting, “Anyway, I had so much fun today and was so happy to be there no matter what anyone else may think x.”
The update caught the attention of her supporters and one of them replied, “You nor anyone else with a mic shoved in your face owe an explanation if you don’t want to talk. He should just move on. Glad you enjoyed it 😊.”
“Ignore the plums, you did nothing wrong and we’re glad to see you at the races. A fellow Brit supporting fellow Brits at Silverstone – that’s how it should be 🤍,” a second person chimed. A third cybercitizen passionately expressed, “Always the F1 fans attacking female celebs at circuits. Leave her the hell alone & get a life.”
However, one critic declared that Delevingne “wants all the publicity but doesnt want to do any of the work for it. will happily try mug off Martin Brundle then say something about mental health if someone calls her out.”
The ‘Mirror, Mirror’ Author Debuted Her Short Hairstyle On Social Media In April
The Grand Prix drama comes three months after she added more color to and chopped off a chunk of her blond curls. The move, which hinted at her maintaining the “start over” theme for her recent Vogue cover story, was shown in an image uploaded by celebrity hairstylist Riawna Capri.
The “Life in a Year” star struck a power pose in a red blazer, a black cleavage-baring tank top, and colorful face glam. The glam featured false lashes, eyeshadow in the same tone of her jacket, mascara, nude lipstick, and eyeliner.
She layered a silver necklace with a feminine pendant under a gold Cuban link chain. Beneath the snap, Capri penned, “Look who else is going short for summer, This Beauty [CaraDelevingne!!!] ✨ Who’s next!?! 🙋🏽♀️ I’m ready with my new #901shears! 😜.”
The April 3 post quickly caught traction online, with this netizen gushing that Delevingne had never looked better than she did there. A second person exclaimed, “OH MY GAWD! She is my girl crush,” and a third pointed out that the blue-eyed superstar’s “cut and color were nicely done!”
“oh my gosh! I love it so much! I want this style,” a fourth Instagram user declared, and a fifth dubbed the “Live And Let Die” singer a “Gorgeous looking beauty.”
