Thanks, Cara! 5 Alternative wedding looks inspired by Queen Delevingne

dress-CD-wedding She may be a blue-blooded beauty hailing from the upper echelons of high society, but there’s no taming Cara Delevingne’s wild side – not even on sister Poppy’s wedding day!

The British runway queen looked every inch the beautiful bridesmaid for her sister’s big day a few weeks back, donning a virginal white Chanel dress; but she still managed to break free from the clichéd bride brigade and put her own stamp on the look. And it’s Cara’s fashion rule-breaking spirit that has inspired our round-up of alternative wedding looks to sport at your next guest invite.

Even though her outfit was a wispy affair, Cara’s scraped back hair, heavily kohled eyes and lack of accessories brought a grittier edge to this pretty look. Keep the base (dress) ultra-feminine, but go for specific detail – be it the makeup, hair or embellishment – that sets your look apart.

Click below to shop our round-up of pretty-but-gritty wedding party dresses, and put your own stamp on them, Cara-style!

1. Adam Lippes crepe and pleated chiffon dress, £1,065, available at Net-a-Porter: Although pretty on the outset, this pleated dress begs to be styled with edge. Add black, statement ankle-strap heels or a blingin’ ear cuff to take it to the next level.

2. Lava tunic dress by TFNC, £32, available ar Topshop: We’re diggin’ the sleeve detail on this dress. How about a strong lip and matching lace veil, à la Beyoncé at the Met Gala?

3. Paul & Joe Frivole printed silk-blend gauze dress, £985, available at Net-a-Porter: The floral print is the winning factor with this dress – we’d add nothing else to enhance it.

4. Drop waist beaded mini dress, £399, available at Karen Millen: Statement makers will love this graphic number, to shake things up at the next ‘I do’ they witness. Just add a killer red lip and you’re good to go.

5. Cream lace embellished dress, £120, available at River Island: We’d wear this dress with spindly pumps, and tone down the prettiness with a smoky eye in the style of Cara D.
