  • Who doesn't want to wear their wedding dress again and again?

    Poppy Delevingne wore Chanel Haute Couture to wed her long time beau James Cook in London on Friday. And she looked perfect.

    Poppy’s younger sister, Cara Delevingne, was a bridesmaid (wearing Chanel, too, naturally) for the nuptials which took St. Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge.

    Not only was Poppy’s Chanel wedding dress beautiful (that intricate beading, those cap sleeves, the subtle floral details…), but it was a stroke of genius too. Because, later on that night, after the wedding, when Poppy and her new husband went off to celebrate at celebrity haunt du jour Chiltern Firehouse, the socialite/model removed the sheer underlay and wore just the top mini dress section of the gown.

    So, not only did Poppy get to wear a custom Chanel wedding dress on her big day, she gets to wear it again and again and again. We predict a surge in the detachable wedding dress trend…

    But, hang on a minute, we don’t mean to steal Poppy’s thunder, but haven’t we seen this dress before?

    Ah yes, we have. Blake Lively wore a similar Chanel number for the the Green Lantern premiere back in 2011.

    Both wore it beautifully, of course.
