    Countless red-carpet appearances. Fistfuls of Vogue covers. Oh, and being declared Google's most searched name in fashion. Yes, Cara Delevingne spent 2013 floating in a cloud of pure fabulousness, racking up the kind of supermodel-worthy credits that'd make Kate Moss lose her fuzzy tail. But, it wasn't always this way...

    Once upon a time in 2009, the 17-year-old (and blonde!) It Brit was just like any other young, aspiring model hustling for her big break. And, by the looks of the 24 pics ahead, ASOS didn't seem to be quite big enough for her. Far from the smoldering, smizing Delevingne we know and love now, this Cara serves dead-eyed glare, with a side of cringe and a sprinkling of "Really, guys? You're joking with this fuzzy, knit headband, right?"

    Click on to see the moments — and outfits — Delevingne probably wishes would remain consigned to the waning days of boho forever. Proof that the way to the top is paved with far too many layers, right this way.
