According to official QS University rankings, Cambridge is currently the top academic establishment on the planet. So the fact that supermodel Lily secured a place to study there is impressive enough in its own right.

Yet this pales into insignificance when you also consider that Lily combined her studies with regular globetrotting, generally to Hollywood and the world's fashion capitals, and still somehow managed to secure a double first in history of art.

She also scored straight As in her A levels, gaining top grades in English, philosophy and ethics - whatever that is!
