Cara Delevingne Is Auctioning an NFT About Her Vagina

The ‘Carnival Row’ actress is selling a video about something that’s definitely non-fungible.

Cara Delevingne is … well … you read the headline. Yes, the Suicide Squad and Carnival Rowactress-model is doing something rather unique with the burgeoning NFT content marketplace.

The 28-year-old has teamed up with the artist Chemical X on a clip (below) where she addresses the camera, apparently nude, and declares, “My first word was ‘mine.’ To me, that means something that is most mine — my vagina. I own it. It’s mine and no one else’s. I choose what I do with it. And no one can take that away from me.”

She noted that the video is being auctioned as a “one-of-a-kind NFT” (non-fungible token) to raise money for her foundation, “which supports women’s empowerment, COVID relief, LGBTQIA+ organizations, environmental causes, and fighting institutionalized racism.”

Delevingne told the Evening Standard, “I want this to remind people of how incredibly powerful they are, what a beautiful thing their bodies are and to take pride in that.”

An NFT is a digital asset that represents art, music, videos and other real-world items. They’re typically bought and sold with cryptocurrency. Each is considered one-of-a-kind even if it can be copied (for instance: The “disaster girl” meme has been reproduced countless times online, but the woman in the photo recently auctioned off an NFT of her meme for $500,000). The appeal is that the owner holds what might be considered a definitive digital “official” version of an item that can then increase in value.

Delevingne’s auction is here. It is scheduled to begin today and last seven days.
