Cara Delevingne is ''honoured'' to be the face of Rimmel London's beauty campaign.

The 24-year-old model has been announced as the new face of the beauty brand's campaign for their new mascara called Scandal Eyes Reloaded, and the star has revealed she ''can't describe'' how grateful she is to be a part of the ''Rimmel Family'' after growing up with the company when she was younger.

The 'Suicide Squad' actress took to social media to share the news and give a sneak preview of the forthcoming commercial.

Her Instagram post read: ''I can't describe what being a part of the Rimmel Family means to me, it is such an honour. I grew up with these images and commercials. It is a brand that honestly represents the London Girl, me! I am so excited to see my first @rimmellondonuk#ScandaleyesReloaded campaign come to life! So much more to come .... Just you wait... !!! I've reloaded my scandalous eyes, have you? (sic).''

And the brand has also taken to social media to congratulate the star on her latest beauty venture, and have welcomed Cara to their ''squad''.

On Rimmel's Instagram account, they reposted the catwalk icon's post, and added: ''Welcome to the squad@caradelevingne #Repost@caradelevingne (sic).''

Meanwhile Cara's co-star in the DC Comics antihero film adaptation, Margot Robbie, has praised Cara as a ''rare gem in the world''.

Speaking previously about Cara - who has starred in campaigns for luxury fashion houses Burberry, Chanel and Fendi - Margot said: ''She is a rare gem in this world and I've just never met anyone like her.

''She is the most genuine person you can ever meet and there's nothing calculated about that girl. She's like a little comet just blasting her way through this world.

''We have the most fun ever. She is definitely now one of my drinking buddies for life.''
