The house, featured in a 2021 Architectural Digest profile, was known for its distinctive amenities.

Delevingne and her designer had incorporated elements such as a costume room, a David Bowie memorial bathroom, gaming rooms, and a ball pit.

Delevingne’s career and contributions

Cara Delevingne, a London-born fashion model turned actor, gained fame in the early 2010s.

She has since transitioned to acting, with roles in films and television series including “Suicide Squad,” “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” and “Only Murders in the Building.”

LAFD’s Prange said: “Firefighters arrived at the two-story house to find heavy fire in the rear, which destroyed a room and spread to the attic. It took them more than two hours to put out the flames.”

Delevingne shared in an Instagram story: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the firefighters and people that have showed up to help.
