In a bold move, Cara Delevingne has shunned on NYFW to focus on her acting career as she attends the premiere of her first-ever film

Cara Delevingne may have been the hardest working model at Fashion Month back in February but now, it's a totally different story. 

The 22-year-old's transition from model to actress is almost complete after making the bold move to skip out on New York Fashion Week to promote her debut role in the new film, The Face Of An Angel. 

Starring seasoned Hollywood star Kate Beckinsale, the film is loosely based around the book Angel Face by Barbie Latza Nadeau, which deals with the controversial and very media-centric murder of a young woman. 

Cara's breakout performance sees her portray a character called Melanie, a British student and the love interest of one of the men involved in the case. And it looks like Cara has taken her role very seriously... 

Over the weekend, which saw the likes of high-profile fashion shows from designers such as Victoria Beckham and Alexander Wang get firmly underway, instead of gracing the catwalk, Cara hit the red carpet in serious style at the film's premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada.

Working a green, bold stripe floor-sweeper which she accessorised with a gold belt and necklace, Cara's style was effortlessly glamorous, fitting in with the A-list crowd perfectly.  

Speaking of her new role, Cara admitted that it was pretty life-changing: 'It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I learnt so much just because I found out a lot about myself. I found out that I could act, that I could do it confidently and not be nervous and die because usually I think I’m going to die doing things that scare me!' 

While we haven't given up hope of seeing her strut her stuff at Fashion Week, if her acting career takes off like she hopes, Cara's time as one of the world's busiest models could be coming to an end. 

Say it ain't so, CD...
