Cara Taylor has been having a pretty good year. Since getting scouted via Instagram, the Alabama-native and keen athlete has starred in campaigns for Coach and Prada, appeared in multiple Interview editorials, covered Vogue Italia, and walked for the likes of Chanel, Dior, Loewe, Miu Miu, Ferragamo, and Moschino. Her source of inspiration, however, is simple: “My mom, because she’s gone through some scary things and fought through it.”
