Lily Cole goes from Cannes to Cambridge as exams start

Tuesday May 26, 2009

Just days ago Lily Cole was sharing the red carpet with international celebs in Cannes. It was back to student life this week for the British model, though, as she sat the first of her end of year exams at Cambridge University.

Wearing in an oversize grey cardigan on top of a fuchsia pink smock, Lily -making a dash for her history of art exam clutching revision notes - cut a very different figure to that she presented at the launch of her new film The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus on Friday.

Then, she stepped out at the French Riviera cine fest in a fairytale-style couture gown from Chanel.

"Lily is quite nervous about her exams just like the rest of us," said a fellow student at King's College. "The end of year exams are a big deal at Cambridge University and we've all spent weeks revising. I don't know how she has managed to fit any revision into her busy social life."

Twenty-one-year-old Lily - who is dating US Without A Trace actor Enrique Murciano - enrolled in Cambridge last year after deferring her place for two years to concentrate on her modelling career.
