Behold, Cara Delevingne as a mystical dragonfly-inspired creature in Amazon Prime's new neo-noir fantasy series Carnival Row!
Cara stars alongside Orlando Bloom in the eight-part series, which is set in a 'neo-Victorian city' where a refugee population of mythical creatures have fled, following the outbreak of war in their homeland. Tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population.
Orlando plays Rycroft Philostrate, a police officer investigating a spate of grisly murders in Carnival Row, which are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists. Model and actress Cara stars as immigrant faerie Vignette Stonemoss, Rycroft's love interest - although interspecies relationships are frowned upon in their city.
"There is a rift in the city, we must all come together," Cara's Vignette says in the show's teaser trailer.
"Time is running out, something inhuman approaches," Orlando's Rycroft adds.
“There has never been a series like Carnival Row before," Joe Lewis, head of comedy, drama and VR at Amazon Studios, said in a statement earlier this year. "The scope of the storytelling combined with the uniqueness of the world, themes and aesthetics haven’t been on TV before.
"A simple police investigation will lead us down a remarkable journey in a world where humans and creatures co-exist. We're so excited about what Rene, Travis and Paul are creating and we can't wait to bring it to customers."
The show was created for Amazon by Rene Echevarria and Travis Beacham.
Cara revealed the series had wrapped back in January, sharing a set photo on Instagram and adding the caption: "That's a wrap people!!! Thank you @travisbeacham for creating such a masterpiece. @orlandobloom and I wouldn't be here without you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for creating such a brilliant character and trusting me to play her. I CANNOT wait for you guys to see."
Carnival Row will be streaming on Amazon Prime Video UK from 30th August.
