Cara Delevingne was (almost) unrecognisable as she roamed the streets of New York City over the weekend. Usually spotted in jeans, sneakers and sweatshirts, the actress and model put on a chic display in an ostentacious look as part of a new television role.
Working on the upcoming twelfth season of FX’s American Horror Story franchise, American Horror Story: Delicate, the model wore an eye-catching black-and-red ensemble, as well as a dark brunette wig with short bangs.
Made up of a black mini dress with a lace high-neck insert and matching cape, the outfit was a little more gothic than her regular personal style. Accessories included red leather gloves, matching oversized sunglasses, platform boots and a patent leather handbag that added an Upper West Side flair.
She was later seen with her natural ‘bronde’ locks in leather leggings, a crisp white button-down shirt and red UGG boots.
Starring alongside Kim Kardashian and AHS veteran Emma Roberts, this will be the 30-year-old’s first role in the franchise. She has previously starred in films and series, including Suicide Squad, Only Murders In the Building, and Carnival Row.
Unlike previous seasons, which have all been original stories based on various themes and characters, this season, entitled American Horror Story: Delicate, is partly based on Danielle Valentine’s novel Delicate Condition.
The novel, which will only be released in August, is described as a “gripping thriller about a woman who becomes convinced that a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens.” It’s also been described as “the feminist update to Rosemary’s Baby we all needed,” per a review by author Andrea Bartz.
