The New York Fashion Week has just begun, and there's one face everyone's looking out for - Cara Delevingne. She's been said to be the hottest British model to emerge since Kate Moss.

Delevingne is only 21 years old, and just like Moss, she's had her share of controversy. She was criticized after conspicuously dropping what appeared to be a bag of white powder this year, but still, her career has just been on a high.
