There is always something cool about being bold and confident. Here’s a chance to stand out and shine as sports brand PUMA introduces the all-new CELL Stellar for women. Worn by Cara Delevingne and local ambassador Nomzamo Mbatha, their refreshing bold style encourages women to add a streak of cool while they dare to only put their best foot forward.
In our latest interview with Cara, she talks about embracing individuality and finding balance in everything she does.
This new campaign with PUMA is about embracing individuality and inspiring confidence - what does it mean to you that you've been chosen to face this approach?
It’s quite an honor to be chosen to face this type of campaign. Individuality is something I’ve always supported. My Instagram bio says “Embrace your weirdness” and I truly believe that.
Who you think is someone that embraces individuality and therefore inspires your own confidence?
I think someone like Lady Gaga really embraces individuality. How she arrived at the Met Gala and just owned her moment was just so inspiring.
How would you describe your style today?
My style is definitely relaxed but bold. I like bright colors and weird prints. Definitely not the expected approach.
How has your journey with confidence changed?
I think I used to be way more concerned about what everyone else thought of me (i.e. reading Instagram comments) and these days I’m just proud to be who I am… whether people like it or not.
Who would you love to workout in these sneakers with?
I’d challenge anyone to a football match in these sneakers.
How will you style these trainers?
I think it will change by the day. Depending on my mood.
What is your number one piece of advice for our readers looking to find their inner confidence?
Do what makes YOU happy.
How do you stay motivated?
I like to surround myself with lots of inspiring people.
What is the most common item in your closet?
Sneakers are definitely the most common item in my closet.
Which PUMA shoes you love the best?
I love the new Puma Cell Stellar sneakers lately.
How would you style the PUMA CELL Stellar to nail different looks - like day and night?
I love the color blocking of the shoe so maybe do the same with my outfit.
What brand spirit of PUMA resonates with your beliefs?
I love how Puma really focuses on the importance of women and building products specifically for women.
Please share some tips on how to be confident and bold.
