Cara Delevingne, the woman (and eyebrows) that have starred in the majority of this season's fashion and beauty campaigns, revealed that she's struggled with psoriasis for years. Surprisingly, it was Kate Moss who saved her during fashion week this year. Delevingne explained, "It only happened during Fashion Week!...Which is, of course, the worst time of the year for me to be covered in scabs. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, and I'm sensitive. Kate [Moss] saw me before the Louis Vuitton show at 3 am, when I was being painted by people to cover the scabs...She said, 'This is horrible! Why is this happening? I need to help you.' She got me a doctor that afternoon; Kate gives really good advice." Noted. [W]
