Though the campaign will not be officially unveiled until next Tuesday, the 21-year-old could not contain her excitement any longer and posted a sneak preview to her Instagram account.

Regularly seen on the catwalk for the established French house, it is no surprise that the model-of-the-moment landed the coveted deal.

The British 'It Girl' has been a stalwart in Chanel runway shows since her debut in the Spring Summer Couture show in 2012.

While this is her first campaign for a mainline Chanel collection, she has previously starred in the Resort 2013 advertisements.

In a previous interview, Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld described Cara as 'the modern It girl'.

The revered designer said, “Cara is different. She's full of life, full of pep. I like girls to be wild but at the same time beautifully brought up and very funny.”

The urban-inspired campaign set in a gritty boxing club also features Binx Walton, with whom Cara stars alongside in the ads for Balmain.
