A make-up artist has boosted the confidence of a little girl battling a rare form of cancer, by recreating Cara Delevingne's look at this year's Met Gala.

Durham based make-up artists Glam Squad Academy recreated Cara's futuristic look on eight-year-old Brooklyn Hutchinson, who is battling nephroblastoma, a cancer of the kidneys.

Brooklyn, from Sunderland in the UK, is fighting cancer for the second time and is currently undergoing chemotherapy.

The talented make-up artists happily recreated Cara's look from this year's Met Gala on the eight-year-old. The model and actress had cut her own hair for a role in Life in a Year, a film in which she plays a terminally ill teenager.

Unsurprisingly, Delevingne totally rocked it and created a futuristic look by covering her scalp in a silvery mixture.

And now a makeup artist has recreated the look on a young girl battling cancer.

Eight-year-old Brooklyn is fighting her second Wilm’s tumour, which is a cancer of the kidneys that typically occurs in children.

Glamsquad Academy gave Brooklyn an incredible makeover, turning her into a mini Cara complete with sequins and glittery eyes.

“This little lady is fighting cancer for the second time and she's doing it with gusto!,” they wrote.

“Well done everyone for raising awareness for this little cracker! ‘If you can't have hair, have diamonds instead!’

“Brave little girl (she's really funny too).”

And Delevingne herself even saw the makeover and reposted the pictures.

“Brooklyn MY HERO!” she wrote.

Brooklyn’s Instagram is run by her best friend Holly, who says: “My best friend is so beautiful, so brave, so positive and overall my inspiration.”

“I would do absolutely anything for my best friend. She's like my little sister, I love her so much.”
