It seems some people do have it all, as British supermodel Lily Cole proves you can have brains and beauty after receiving the highest possible recognition for her university degree – you go girl!

Cole received a double first honours for her History of Art degree at Cambridge University, after she began the course back in 2008.

The 23-year-old has always worked around her studies, after landing contract jobs with the likes of Hermes, Rimmel and US Vogue – not to mention her acting appearances in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and television series Doctor Who – and Ms Cole still managed to come out top of the class.

We wonder how she’ll celebrate… with a new contract, perhaps? Well done, Lily!
