Cara Delevingne says she always wears the same clothes and doesn't understand how she became a style icon.

Cara Delevingne claims she always wears the same clothes.

The supermodel and actress, who has become a global style icon in the past few years, doesn't understand why people look up to her so much because she doesn't feel she makes much of an effort.

She told The Guardian newspaper: ''I always wear the same frigging things, jeans and leather jacket and a beanie and some trainers.

''Even at school, some people were always like, 'Oh, you can't wear the same outfit twice in a week', or whatever, and I was like, 'What? It's just clothes.' It really is just clothes.''

The blonde star also revealed if she had a daughter with aspirations to become a model she would tell her she could do more with her life than just walk down a catwalk.

She explained: ''I'd say no, if that's all she aspired to. You know, I get a lot of girls who say, 'I just want to be a model so badly.' And I think: you can do better than that. I mean, look, I do love it, I'm not saying anything bad about it, I just think you can do a lot more.

''I was incredibly lucky to do as well as I've done, it's not easy, there's so many models go through so much s**t, and it's just, if you have a brain, which everyone does, use it and try and do something else.''

Cara's family have supported her own modelling career, but she admits she felt like a ''puppet'' when she first started working in the industry.

She said: ''You're looked through, you're not looked at, you are treated as a kind of mannequin.

''I got a tattoo saying Made in England above my foot to represent that, that I felt like a doll for so long. Because you are just a kind of puppet, you know, entertainment.

''You kind of feel that you need to have no soul really, to do that job, a little bit.

''But then it gets better and people actually want to hear your opinion and it's the most shocking thing in the world when that happens.

''It all changes, 'You used to treat me like shit and now you suck up to me.'''
