Cara Delevingne shows off the premier mansion that she lives in alone, complete with Gucci wallpaper, a Chanel surfboard, and a “vagina tunnel.”
Cara Delevingne shows off her L.A. mansion in a new video tour. The actor and model has starred in such hits as the 2016 Suicide Squad and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Currently, Delevingne has an estimated net worth of $28 million, approximately 230 times the median net worth for Americans. She and her sister Poppy recently sold their former mansion for $3.75 million after buying it from Suicide Squad costar, Jared Leto, in 2017 for $2.5 million. Now, following a split from actress Ashley Benson, Delevingne lives in a new mansion alone.
Delevingne’s history of wealth traces all the way back to her great-grandfather, Sir Hamar Greenwood, the last Chief Secretary of Ireland and an associate of the Black and Tans — a paramilitary group now notorious for police brutality and extrajudicial killings. Sir Hamar’s daughter, Angela Delevingne, was an aristocrat and frequent guest of Prince Philip, Clark Gable, and Charlie Chaplin. Angela’s son, Charles Delevingne, is a highly successful property designer. Finally, Charles’ daughter, Cara Delevingne, starred as Enchantress in Suicide Squad — but has stated that she likely wouldn’t be returning to the role.
Delevingne gave a tour of her Los Angeles home in a video for Architectural Digest, which she thinks of as her “adult playhouse.” The mansion was built in the 1930s and was very “black-and-white” before Delevingne paired with architect Nicolò Bini to make the kitchen her favorite shade of blue and cover the rooms in Gucci wallpaper. The tour begins with a James Turrell art piece — whose commissions can be priced at up to $2 million — with friend and KUWTK star, Kendall Jenner, owning a $750,000 Turrell piece that many believe Jenner hung sideways. Delevingne has to use a scooter to go from the kitchen to her bedroom due to how hard the floors of the house are — a luxury Delevingne acknowledges as sounding “spoiled.” Check out the video below:
Architect Bini helped design a secret passage from the game room shaped like a vulva, nicknamed the “vagina tunnel,” that comes out of a false washing machine on the other side. Delevingne, an outspoken feminist, claims she likes to go in there to think, and the very construction of it was almost a test of how far Bini would go to adhere to Delevingne’s design concepts. Other themes of the rooms include a Beverly Hills hotel, the Playboy Mansion, and the jungle, with scattered decorations of a Chanel surfboard, a seemingly gold bathtub with a “massive TV,” and an assortment of silly hats that upstairs visitors must wear — including a jeweled policeman’s hat and a furry top hat.
Delevingne explains that her ball pit near her game room is in the pursuit of eternal childhood and innocence, just like her Carnival Row faerie character — something she advocates for everyone to have in their homes. With a walk-in closet for practically just her trainers and boots, a garden sanctuary for trampolining and reading scripts, and a “Pink Pussy Palace” for relaxing and entertaining special guests, Delevingne’s mansion tour showcases both just how much she’s amassed and how much she’s made it for herself. Delevingne finishes the tour by playing Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” on a see-through Wurlitzer piano, resting a glass of Della Vite on it — the Delevingne family’s vegan prosecco company.
