The Secret Story Behind The Suit Cara Delevingne Wore To Princess Eugenie’s Wedding

The wedding look that ended all wedding looks

When model Cara Delevingne broke every royal protocol by showing up to Princess Eugenie’s wedding in a suit, people couldn’t help but be impressed by the apparent boldness.

Traditional wedding guests of a royal wedding are encouraged to wear a modest day dress and hat, but the rule-breaking model chose a three-piece suit, complete with tails, a top hat and a toothpick.

But it turns out that Delevingne is a close childhood friend of the royal bride and had asked for her friend’s permission before she wore the outfit.

The Suicide Squad actress told Grazia magazine, “Eugenie has been a friend of mine since I was a kid and I’ve always wanted to wear tails, I texted her, as I wasn’t sure about it and she was like: Of course, I expected nothing else from you!”

Although Cara’s choice of attire neither phased nor surprised the bride, she joked about wedding guests reaction to her outfit and pointed out that a suit felt more natural to her than wearing a dress, “I found it interesting how many people came up to me and said: ‘You’re so brave to wear that!’ I was like, really? I feel way more comfortable like this.”

Never change Cara.
