If you’re a firm believer in the “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue” wedding superstition, then this one’s a doozy: British model and personality Poppy Delevingne (sister to supermodel Cara) just tied the knot in London wearing a Chanel dress that fits two of those criteria. The bride looked radiant in a Chanel Couture gown that “borrows” inspiration from look 64 in the spring 2009 collection — an “old” gown that was previously worn by Blake Lively.
The two dresses have tons in common, from the structured bodice with its short sleeves and shorter hemline, to the flowing sheer skirt at the bottom, to the allover floral appliqués. But while Lively’s was more of a bohemian take on the dress (with her braided pony, stacks of bracelets and bronzed glow), Delevingne’s is all bride — she’s got the perfectly coiffed waves, minimal jewels and, oh yeah, the lined skirt, to prove it.
Sister Cara served as maid of honor, recalling another famous British sister act by wearing a flowing cream-colored gown, plus black and white sandals and a topknot. (See a photo below.)
