Lily Cole Graduates In Style

Only Lily Cole could manage to make a graduation gown look like something on a couture catwalk.

The model graduated from Cambridge University yesterday with a double first class degree in History of Art - one of a very small minority of students to be awarded the highest possible award in her subject.

Joining the rest of her graduating class at the famous Senate House to receive her certificate, the supermodel looked happy and relaxed with her family by her side.

Dressed in a white shirt and simple black trousers and pumps - graduates are only permitted to wear black and white during the ceremony - the 23-year-old added a bright pop of colour with a scarlet lip.

Congratulations, Lily!
