Poppy Delevingne Doubles Her Wedding, Doubles Her Fun

-------

On Friday, we pointed out that Kim and Kanye are not the only celebrities to have ever gotten married. But as it turns out, they aren’t even the only celebrities to have gotten married last weekend. Poppy Delevingne and new hubby James Cook held a second ceremony in Marrakech, after initially tying the knot in London earlier this month. The first celebration saw Poppy, flanked by head bridesmaid Cara and her rabbit Cecil (who nearly met his death after climbing into an air-conditioning pipe at Mulberry’s headquarters last week), walk down the aisle in custom Chanel. However, for the Marrakech occasion, she donned a colorful custom Pucci number. Extravagant? Definitely. But after doubling down on nuptials and gowns, shouldn’t she have thrown in a second groom for good measure?

Poppy Delevingne Ties the Knot in Custom Chanel

-------

Earlier today, Poppy Delevingne married James Cook at St. Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge, London, wearing a custom Chanel gown. Unsurprisingly, the dress was beyond lovely, featuring feminine short sleeves, intricate beading, white flower appliqués, and a sheer train. But it’s also worth noting that Poppy opted for relaxed waves—not a fancy updo—and a very simple veil. She was hardly your typical gussied-up bride, and we love that she looked like her natural self. Younger sis and chief bridesmaid Cara looked just as charming in a fluttery white Chanel dress. If you aren’t familiar, the head bridesmaid in English weddings always wears white. (Remember the worldwide confusion over Pippa Middleton at the Royal Wedding?) Also worth noting? Cara’s new bunny, Cecil Delevingne, appears to have participated in the ceremony, too. Talk about a family affair.

Trimming the Tree With Dolce & Gabbana

-------

Stefano and Eva “Claridge’s asked us to create this year’s Christmas tree, and we were delighted because London and Claridge’s are two of our favorite places, and Christmas is such a magical time,” Stefano Gabbana told Style.com last night at the annual Christmas tree unveiling at Claridge’s, an event that, for many Londoners, marks the beginning of the festive season. “To be asked was such an honor considering the great designers who have taken part before. We just hope that we have achieved our goal of bringing a bit of Italian artigianalita [artistry] to London.”

Well, they can tick that box. The beautiful ornaments that were painstakingly hand-blown, carved, and painted in an Italian workshop included pupi (wooden puppets), toy soldiers, medieval knights, and even orange, lemon, and watermelon wedges that transported us directly to a Sicilian garden. This collaboration carries on the tradition established by Claridge’s in 2009 of inviting a fashion house to dream up a tree, with Dior and Lanvin rising to the challenge at Christmases past.

Eva Herzigova, David Gandy, Poppy Delevingne, Joan Collins, and more sampled Italian canapes out of festively wrapped gift boxes and were treated to a moving tenor performance that held the entire crowd in rapt attention. “The environment they created is so very special—the atmosphere here is absolutely rich with this infusion of Italian culture,” offered Herzigova. “I think with this, the boys have outdone even themselves, if that is possible.”

Fit for a Queen

 Princess Margaret's kaftan and turban

Fashion Rules—a new exhibition at London’s Kensington Palace showcasing twenty-one gowns once worn by Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret, and Princess Diana—provides a peek at the royals’ wardrobes. “These three women were perhaps the most high-profile dressers of their time,” offered the show’s curator, Cassie Davies-Strodder. “Whatever they wore was photographed by international press and seen worldwide. The influence they had on fashion was bar none, and from a historical perspective, we felt it was critical to highlight that.” Now open to the public, the show comes before the much-anticipated September release of Oliver Hirschbiegel’s Diana biopic, in which Naomi Watts stars as the People’s Princess.

Sponsored by Estée Lauder, the exhibition’s opening party was held on Thursday evening at the Palace (once home to Queen Victoria, Princess Diana, and now the Duchess of Cambridge and Wills). And while the historic home’s new renovations—including a majestic stone hall with a thoroughly modern blue light sculpture by Loop.pH, quirky wallpaper boasting illustrations of Diana by artist Julie Verhoeven, and brick walls adorned with Mario Testino-lensed portraits of Princess Di—nearly overshadowed the dresses, several stood out. Key pieces include a gold caftan and turban worn by the party-loving Princess Margaret for a fete in Mustique (above), five gowns worn by the Queen in the fifties (below), and several Bruce Oldfield looks for Princess Diana. Oldfield himself was in attendance, joined by Poppy Delevingne, Tali Lennox, Minnie Driver, and Mr. Selfridge‘s Jeremy Piven. Designers Manolo Blahnik, Erdem Moralioglu, Richard Nicoll, Henry Holland, and Marios Schwab also stopped by to survey the scene. Continue Reading “Fit for a Queen” »

Rag & Bone’s Double DIY

-------

Rag & Bone’s Spring ’13 campaign may have featured polished Alasdair McLellan-lensed images of Kate Moss, but that doesn’t mean designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have gone all glossy on us. Today, Rag & Bone revives its DIY Project for the rag & bone/JEAN line. Having originated in 2011, the experimental ads have previously starred the likes of Miranda Kerr, Karolina Kurkova, and Candice Swanepoel (just to name a few), each of whom were given a digital camera, a bag of rag & bone/ JEAN clothes, and free range to shoot and wear whatever they pleased.

“We think [the DIY Project] is a unique way to show the styles of these cool girls, and it also gives people the opportunity to see their respective personalities and experiences,” says Neville. This season, the designers offer a DIY double whammy, having asked both Camille Rowe (above) and Poppy Delevingne (below) to document their rag & bone/JEAN experiences. “I shot my campaign in Mustique, where I was with my boyfriend, sister and friends for New Year’s. I also took some photos in London, which is where my home and heart lie. The final part was taken by my boyfriend in the fields of West Sussex,” said Delevingne. French-born, New York-based Rowe also had her boyfriend snap some images, which show the model in her Soho loft. “I think he’s a pretty talented photographer,” says Wainwright. The girls’ (and their boyfriends’) Spring ’13 DIY handiwork debuts here, exclusively on Style.com.
