In the latest edition of The Edit Poppy Delevingne and Alexa Chung go on the road with a suitcase packed with white lace, fringed suede, chokers and denim cut-offs. The tagline for the trip is ‘Eat, drink and try not to kill each other.’ Poppy Delevingne has written an accompanying essay documenting her friendship with Alexa.
Poppy first met a skinny-jean-clad Alexa on a casting 10 years ago. The turning point in their friendship was when the pair went skinny-dipping in the sea at Cannes. Poppy writes: "At 4am, rummaging through bushes for our stray couture, I realized it wasn’t just another friendship."
There are a number of hilarious anecdotes in the piece - the time Chung fell asleep at a craps table because she 'can't actually drink very much.' When they stayed up playing the paino in Shanghai.
We imagine packing for a holiday with Alexa Chung is a slightly daunting prospect and Poppy agrees. She writes: "I always pack to excess. I’ll bring a suitcase the size of a dining table and still wear the same jeans, Converse and hideous sweater I’ve owned since I was 13. She, on the other hand, will bring a suitcase the size of a piece of calamari and yet each day she’ll wear something mouth-wateringly stylish. Actually, everything she wears she makes desirable – I told her to try my engagement ring on once and I fell in love with it even more seeing it on her finger."
Our favourite bit about the feature however is the video where the girls sit at a bar and kind of, sort of interview each other. Alexa comes out with all the good questions: Who would you rather be Kate Moss or Cara Delevingne? What's the inside of a Kangaroo's pouch like? Would you rather be a girl or a boy?
