Poppy Delevingne married James Cook yesterday at St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge and she certainly set fashion pulses racing in her custom Haute Couture Chanel gown created for her by Karl Lagerfeld.
As the festivities moved onto the celebrity hot spot of the moment, The Chiltern Firehouse, the model and all round stylista revealed quite the party trick; her wedding dress skirt was ripped off to leave her with just a mini dress. Any bride looking for a multi-purpose gown should take note, detachable dresses may just become the next big bridal trend.
Poppy looked breathtaking in her white gown, earlier in the day, with its elegant capped sleeves and delicate embellishment and with camellias on the sleeves. Grazia‘s Senior Fashion and News editor Katherine Ormerod says of the look: ‘Poppy’s style has always had a bohemian and free spirited vibe, and this wedding dress perfectly reflects both the formality of the occassion and her personal aesthetic. This is the kind of dress that will inspire brides to be accross the spectrum. Watch out for Poppy copy cats all summer long.‘
As for Poppy’s bridal beauty, we can reveal that Poppy’s makeup has been done by Charlotte Tilbury and her hair is in the capable hands of Mr George Northwood.
Her sister and maid of honour Cara Delevingne is also be wearing an ivory Chanel tiered creation, with monochrome Chanel heels. Cara Delevingne’s bunny Cecil Delevingne is also wearing Chanel, as he looks incredibly handsome in a white camellia. Chloe Delevingne meanwhile is wearing a blue Victoria Victoria Beckham dress to the ceremony.
If Poppy’s hen parties are anything to go by (yes plural, she had THREE) this wedding will be a big one. Plus she has given the exclusive photography rights to Net A Porter’s glossy Porter. Poppy isn’t just having one wedding, as she is also having a ceremony later in the year in Marrakech. This is the smaller event of the two with 150 guests, while the ceremony in Morocco will be a lavish black tie bash.
Grazia joined Poppy Delevingne and her best pals, including Sienna Miller and Cara Delevingne, on her hen do at Coachella dubbed Popchella. Poppy said to us at the time: ‘My first choice was actually to something in Vegas – I kind of see Vegas as my spiritual home in a weird way. Then I sent out the email to all my girlfriends and I got very few replies.. because I think people were so terrified of the prospect, they thought they’d never make it back alive! Then I thought well I should do something on the West Coast and if you’re in the UK people never come to Coachella so I thought it was a good idea. Everyone loves music, don’t they?’
