A Delevingne Day for a Wedding – The world got to see what the marriage of a well-connected socialite-and-model looked like when Poppy Delevingne got married to long term partner James Cook on the 17th of May. The bride herself, a close friend of Chanel mogul Karl Largerfeld, wore a couture Chanel gown for the big day, whilst her younger sister Cara also followed up in Chanel. Other notable moments of the day: elder sister Chloe wore a £1500 Victoria Beckham dress, and Poppy got the ‘ring bear’ (a small child in a bear costume) that Robin from How I Met Your Mother was so afraid about.
Sarah Millican Hits Back – Sarah Millican calls up the nonsense of female criticism through the backlash she received for wearing a John Lewis gown at the recent BAFTA awards ceremony. She says: ‘I felt wonderful in that dress, and surely that’s all that counts… The next day, I was in newspapers pilloried for what I was wearing. I’m sorry. I thought I had been invited to such an illustrious event because I was good at my job.’
Cannes Style – Stars are out in force for the Cannes Film Festival, with stars Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen, Blake Lively and many more hitting the red carpet in their best couture frocks.
