The Met Gala is one of the biggest nights in fashion, and of all the show-stopping looks at this year’s event, Cara Delevingne’s was one of the most jaw-dropping. The model/actress recently shaved her head for her upcoming role in Life in a Year and for the event, she painted her head silver and bedazzled it with rhinestones. The finished look was beyond gorgeous.

Cara also took the opportunity around that time to post some inspiring messages about beauty standards on Instagram.
“The more we embrace who we are as people and rely less on our physical attributes, the more empowered we become. Beauty shouldn’t be so easily defined. It is limitless,” she wrote in one caption.
“Its exhausting to be told what beauty should look like. I am tired of society defining beauty for us. Strip away the clothes, Wipe Off the make up, cut off the hair. Remove all the material possessions. Who are we? How are we defining beauty? What do we see as beautiful?” she wrote in another.
Cara’s look and her posts provided major inspiration for one fan. Brooklyn, an eight-year-old currently battling her second Wilms’ tumor, (a cancer that begins in the kidneys), recently decided to copy Cara’s stunning Met Gala look after her hair fell out from chemotherapy.
“Brooklyn’s first professional makeover!! Inspired by @caradelevingne If you can’t have hair, have glitter and diamonds,” her family wrote in a caption on the picture of her gorgeous makeover.
News of Brooklyn’s inspiring makeover made its way back to Cara, who posted a tribute to the young fan, calling her “MY HERO!”
Brooklyn’s story is an inspiring reminder that beauty doesn’t have to fit inside a box. Bravo to Brooklyn and Cara for making such an important and beautiful statement.
