This 8-Year-Old Cancer Fighter Just Awesomely Channeled Cara Delevingne's Look

After losing all of her hair from chemotherapy treatments, 8-year-old Brooklyn, who is currenty battling cancer, transformed her bald head into a flawless recreation of Cara Delevingne's Met Gala look.

When supermodel Cara Delevingne shaved her head for a role in Life in a Year, people were stunned. But being the badass that she is, she totally owned the shaved look by showing up to the Met Gala with her bald head adorned in bright silver paint and striking sequins, proving that beauty truly doesn't have just one look.

Later on, she took to Instagram to inspirationally elaborate on her metallic makeover, expressing that she is tired of society defining what beauty means, and that we should all embrace that true beauty is limitless. (Similarly to how the #baldandbeautiful challenge encouraged us to do the same!)


"Beauty shouldn't be so easily defined. It is limitless," Cara Delevingne wrote on one of her photos. "I am tired of society defining beauty for us. Strip away the clothes, Wipe Off the make up, cut off the hair. Remove all the material possessions. Who are we? How are we defining beauty? What do we see as beautiful?"

It wasn't just us that was inspired by her words, though. An 8-year-old named Brooklyn, who is currently battling her second Wilms' tumor, a form of cancer that starts in the kidneys, lost all of her hair after undergoing chemotheraphy treatments. The young heroine used Cara's Met Gala look to transform her own bald head into a carbon-copy of the glamourous moment, and the result is seriously amazing.
