It took only several days for Kai Newman to amass thousands of followers on her Instagram.

Wait, who is Kai Newman again?

The new BFF of top model Cara Delevingne it seems. After Cara posted a photo with Kai in matching onesies on her social media platform, Pickle (as Kai is also known as) is more famous than ever, and from the looks of the affectionate hashtag #peanutmissesyou, it seems like Cara a.k.a. Peanut is ‘bear-y’ much inseparable from her newfound friend.

However, Kai Newman isn’t new to the scene. Hailing from Jamaica, the 17 year-old model calls the catwalk her second home, and began her career a year ago, right after her 16th birthday. During the past year, she has walked the runways of many fashion weeks. Having strutted her stuff for big names such as Burberry, Missoni, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Diane von Furstenberg, she was even bestowed the title, ‘Queen of the Podium’ due to her leggy 1.79m height.

With a blossoming career, Kai now seems to have it all with the addition of her new (and famous) best friend, Cara Delevingne. The adorable duo have been spreading virtual love with their affectionate nickname-calling as well as photos taken together while they wait backstage.

Kai’s dream is to achieve the highly coveted position as a Victoria’s Secret Angel – based on what we’re seeing now, it should not take long for this lovely lass to achieve her goal.
