When Cara Delevingne steps on the runway, all eyes are on her—after all, it’s not so often anymore that you see her on the Fashion Week catwalks. Her last Fashion Week appearance, as chronicled by Vogue, was at Chanel’s Pre-Fall show in 2016. (She’s been turning to acting instead, which is no small thing.) But on Saturday, she was back in a big way: The model closed Burberry’s London Fashion Week show wearing a rainbow cape in an homage to LGBTQ+ rights, and the look pretty much went viral immediately.
The Saturday show was Burberry President and Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey’s last for the iconic British heritage brand, and he dedicated the entire collection to LGBTQ+ youth—fitting, since the U.K. celebrates LGBT History Month this month (as compared to the U.S.’s June Pride celebrations and October observation of LGBT History Month.)
“My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to—and in support of—some of the best and brightest organizations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world,” Bailey said in a statement. “There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength and our creativity.”
