Cara Delevingne stuns in top hat and tuxedo at Princess Eugenie royal wedding
Cara Delevingne shattered traditional barriers at Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding on Friday, by turning up in a tuxedo.
The model and Paper Towns star was invited as a guest to the wedding of ninth-in-line to the throne e and Jack Brooksbank, which took place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
The gender-fluid star channelled her inner Marlene Dietrich for the occasion, wearing a top hat and a tuxedo, paired with white shirt and heels.
While royal weddings are always an occasion for formal fashion, the androgynous outfit was a stand-out at the event.
It was praised by commentators online.
One royal wedding-watcher on Twitter observed: “Cara Delevingne looks f**king .”
Another quipped: “Cara Delevingne rocks up to royal wedding in suit and top hat, everyone else go home.”
She was accompanied by her brother-in-law James Cook, and out CNN Style host Derek Blasberg.
Delevingne has eschewed the gender binary in her fashion choices previously, also wearing an androgynous outfit this week for the launch of a Burberry fragrance.
Writing in Vogue earlier this year, she explained: “As a child and a teenager, all I wanted was to make people happy, but it took me so long to figure out what made me happy.
“When I first realised that gender is so much more fluid than ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ it was a breakthrough moment for me.
“Here’s a secret for you. You know those fairytales and romantic comedies we are brought up watching? They’re not real.”
She added: “The thing about milestones is they’re not really set in stone.
“You can mould them, you can change them – you can create anything you want to. Everyone’s milestones are different. You don’t have to get married, you don’t have to have kids.”
Delevingne has had high-profile relationships with women, and also describes her sexuality as “fluid.”
She told Glamour magazine: “I am very happy how sexuality has become easier and freer to talk about, especially for kids.
“Once I spoke about my sexual fluidity, [some] people were like, ‘So you’re gay’, and I’m like, ‘No, I’m not gay’.
“A lot of the friends I have who are straight have such an old way of thinking.
“It’s, ‘So you’re just gay, right?’ [They] don’t understand it. [If] I’m like, ‘Oh, I really like this guy,’ [they’re like], ‘But you’re gay.’ I’m like, ‘No, you’re so annoying!’
“Someone is in a relationship with a girl one minute, or a boy is in a relationship with a boy, I don’t want them to be pigeonholed.
“Imagine if I got married to a man. Would people be like, ‘she lied to us!’? It’s like, no.
“I’m not gay. I am… I’m not. I’m fluid! I like fluid.”
Delevingne said previously: “It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognised that I had to accept it.
“I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
