Cara Delevingne, the 20-year-old elastic-faced model who has walked in, like, every single fashion show this season, covered British Vogue and been traipsing London with Rihanna, has trademarked her name.

The magazine retails for £1.20 at each of Waitrose's 290 locations, or is available free of charge to members of their loyalty program. (via John Brown Media)
