Cara Delevingne kills as a model with her fierce blue eyes, on-point eyebrows, and cool street style. However, it’s no secret that the world loves Cara for her crazy and charismatic personality. This is further proven in this spunky blonde’s sing along of LL Cool J’s and J. Lo’s “It’s Hard to Control Myself.” The video is full of our favorite things: pastel colors, sweets, and of Jap-tastic emojis!

Check out Cara’s lip syncing skills!
