This Week’s Cutest Couple Moments Go to Poppy and Gisele

The honeymoon period isn’t over yet!

Making one of their first appearances as husband and wife following their elaborate second wedding earlier this month, Poppy Delevingne and James Cook still looked very much in love as they hit the streets of London for a couple’s shopping spree earlier this morning.  The newlyweds were hand-in-hand on Bond Street where they shopped for designer clothes in Louis Vuiton.  Despite Saturday marking the first official day of summer, Poppy layered a graphic blue Fendi fur coat over her skinny jeans and tee combo, teaming the look with her favorite Gucci fringe shoulder bag, classic white Converse sneakers, and of course, her new wedding band.

Meanwhile, back in the States, Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady shared a cute couple moment of their own as they hit their local SoulCycle Studio for a grueling afternoon workout session.  The Boston-based couple looked well and energized emerging from the popular cycling class— just one of the many healthy activities the two enjoy doing in their down time.  Just last week, the couple was spotted enjoying a long stroll in the park with two little children, while they’ve previously been spotted paddle boarding in Costa Rica and  are said to be building a private yoga studio in their soon-to-be Massachusetts-based mega-mansion.  It must be true what they say then: the couple that sweats together, stays together!

 

Look of the Week: Gisele is Effortlessly Stylish in a Denim Jumpsuit

Let’s call a spade a spade here, ladies.  The jumpsuit is essentially a glorified onesie (alternatively, the chicer sibling to the ’90s overall) and that’s why we love it!  While the all-in-one ensemble is hardly new to the fashion season — it had a major moment in the ’70s, popped up again in the early 2000s, and has a resurrection of sorts for the past several seasons— it would seem that within the past few months alone the trend has has a noted resurgence with the models.  Among them, Gisele Bündchen, who, despite being no where near a red carpet this week, managed to score today’s Look of the Week title with this genius street style look!

As tradition would have it, Petra stole the spotlight in a figure-hugging ruby red floor-length dress complete with matching drop earrings and a diamond encrusted necklace by Chopard.  Joined by celebrity guests Naomi Watts, Sheryl Crow, John Legend and special honoree Bill Clinton, the passionate Czech model was all smiles as she greeted her guests, including a very adorable teddy!
