Cara Delevingne is ending February with a drastic hair change: Swapping her iconic blonde color for something a little darker. The 28-year-old model revealed on her Instagram this morning that she went brunette, showing off her makeover in a selfie, “Blondes have more fun, but brunettes…” she wrote. Delevingne opted for a light brown shade and wore her hair in waves. She accessorized with an Adina’s Jewels rainbow choker.

Delevingne recently shared her collaboration with Puma on her Instagram. While she hasn’t given many interviews in the last year, she gave one of her most candid yet about her journey embracing being pansexual in a June 2020 interview with Variety. “I always will remain, I think, pansexual,” she said. “However one defines themselves, whether it’s ‘they’ or ‘he’ or ‘she,’ I fall in love with the person—and that’s that. I’m attracted to the person.”
Delevingne, who had recently broken up with ex-girlfriend of two years Ashley Benson, opted not to talk about their relationship explicitly. But she did tell the outlet, “I’ve always felt bad for anyone I’ve ever been in a relationship with. It’s very hard to maintain the normality in it. I think it’s why I tend to keep my private life a lot more private now, because that public thing can actually ruin a lot of things.”
She revealed that she struggled with her own sexuality as a teen, in part because of the environment she grew up in. “I grew up in an old-fashioned, repressed English family,” she started. “And I used the word ‘gay’ to describe things which were sh*t all the time: ‘That’s so f*cking gay of you, man.’ Everyone used to talk about ‘Oh, my God, imagine going down on a woman.’ I’d be like, ‘That’s disgusting.’ I think that came from the fact that I just didn’t want to admit who I was. I didn’t want to upset my family. I was deeply unhappy and depressed. When you don’t accept a part of yourself or love yourself, it’s like you’re not there, almost.”
Delevingne would go on to have her first relationship with a woman when she was 18, she said. When it ended, and she was heartbroken, she got more support from her father than she anticipated: “I’ve never been very good at talking about my emotions with my father,” Delevingne started. “And I remember one day, I was so upset because I was heartbroken. And my dad was like, ‘You never talk to me.’ And I screamed at him, ‘I’m f*cking heartbroken.’ I ran downstairs. I remember he gave me a hug, and I started crying so much. I said, ‘She broke my heart.’ I thought at the moment, he might kick me out. I was that scared; I was honestly terrified. And he was like, ‘She isn’t worth the energy. You deserve to be loved.’ He was so sweet, I could cry about it right now.”
Delevingne added generally, “Once I could talk about my sexuality freely, I wasn’t hiding anything anymore. And the person I hid it from the most was myself.”
