Cara Delevingne's acting career is certainly taking off. The retired model wowed in Paper Towns and now she's ready to save the world in Suicide Squad. But long before the gorgeous star could completely get into character, she had to undergo a major transformation.

For the first time, we finally get to see a substantial picture of Enchantress—and the drastic makeover left the 23-year-old barely recognizable on the British cover of Empire magazine. The film's director, David Ayer, shared the image on Twitter, and it certainly was worth the wait. Delevingne's drastic new look includes tribal markings all over her body, tough bikini-style armor equipped with metal details, and bold gritty makeup and hair.

It looks like Delevingne really made Enchantress come to life. Now we'll just need to sit back until Suicide Squad is released in theaters on Aug. 5, 2016 to see the sorceress in action.
