Marc Jacobs has called Cara Delevingne a "silly goose" who sets a great example to others.
British model Cara was one of the most in-demand people during the recent show season, walking the runway for Marc's eponymous line and Louis Vuitton - where he is the creative director.
The designer believes the industry could do with more characters as strong as Cara.
"She's a silly goose," he told vogue.co.uk. "She has a great energy. She turned up to the Vuitton show wearing a zebra outfit from Madagascar, a onesie. She'd been traipsing round Paris all evening in it; you got to love a girl like that. It's rare in life that you meet a person who doesn't care. It sets a good example."
Marc is known for his show-stopping Louis Vuitton shows. He persuaded Kate Moss to help show off his recent Fall/Winter 13 line, with the iconic model almost unrecognisable in the brunette wig she donned for the event.
The designer has nothing but praise for the 39-year-old star.
"I like everything about her," he said. "Maybe we knew each other in a different life. We have mutual friends and just hit it off right from the beginning. I never see her as a rebellious girl, she's just honest. She has no shame or guilt about anything she does. Before Kate, there was this preconceived idea of what beauty was and she changed that."
Marc is the latest creative director of Diet Coke and appears topless, showing off his hulking muscles, in the accompanying advertising campaign.
He is thrilled to be involved with the soft drink and hopes it will go some ways to dismiss the myths about the fashion industry.
"I dislike that old-fashioned notion that fashion needs to be exclusive," he said. "It is far more modern to cover both ends of the spectrum. Andy Warhol once said, 'The great thing about Coke is that Nancy Reagan's Coke tastes the same as yours.' Everybody's Coke tastes the same. I don't like that ivory tower of fashion, that snobbery. Things should be honest. There doesn't need to be compromise."© Cover Media
