THE LAST TIME a Delevingne sister appeared here at TIG, it was Poppy Delevingne’s wedding and we fell completely in love with her custom Chanel Haute Couture gown. Fast forward two months, and here we are again, pining after more fashionable Delevingne outfits, but this time, with an additional special guest.

Pairing up with her close friend of ten years, Poppy was captured alongside British model/fashion icon/TV presenter, Alexa Chung, for Net-a-Porter’s weekly online magazine ‘The Edit, photographed by Italian photographer Stefano Galuzzi.

Mixing designer labels with summery festival staples, stylist Natalie Brewster unexpectedly put together a Givenchy choker that seamlessly went with floaty Rag & Bone separates, Isabel Marant booties and Chloé white lace.

Embellished ponchos and smoky eyes aside, this prairie inspired shoot also included an informal ‘essay on friendship’ written by Poppy on her high profile friendship with Alexa.

Reminiscing about their first encounter at Storm Models agency, Poppy speaks of how the two had remained close even when Alexa chose to pursue other projects, meeting occasionally at luxurious events or back home in Britain.

A genuine portrait of a deep friendship, Poppy went on to say lovely things:

“You get so much more out of life by being supportive and having loving friends who are there for you. Good friendships can make your heart light; it can make you feel giddy; it can make you feel like when you fall in love.”- Poppy Delevingne
