Shop the Look: Poppy Delevingne’s Silky Summer Shorts

Finding that delicate balance between personal style and seasonal dressing isn’t always easy, but this week, Poppy Delevingne landed on the perfect mix with this accessible off-duty look.  Spotted on her way to Heathrow airport, the newlywed looked oh so cool pairing a killer leather jacket with a pair of printed Sandro Paris silk shorts, a fringe-embellished Gucci shoulder bag, Zoe Karssen’s ‘Boy Toy’ sweatshirt  and classic Converse kicks.  A little bit rock, and a little bit comfy, Poppy’s look was Brit summer style at its finest, and just the bit of style inspiration we need heading into summer travel season.

Gisele Will Play a MAJOR Role in This Year’s World Cup Finals!

The ‘Beautiful Game’ is about to get a whole lot more beautiful!

Thanks to the fine people at FIFA, those with little interest in the World Cup will now have new incentive to tune into next month’s championship game as it is revealed that Brazil’s own national treasure, Gisele Bündchen will have the honor of presenting the winning team of the 2014 World Cup with the official FIFA World Cup Trophy.  Gisele, who remains the world’s highest-paid supermodel, will do the honors at the closing ceremony at the Maracana Mário Filho Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, slated to take place July 13.

According to the Telegraph, the super is stepping in for Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, who’s facing scrutiny on account of the huge amount of money the country has spent to put on the games, when so many of its citizens are living in poverty.

Additionally, WWD is reporting that like Gisele, the trophy will be dressed to the nines for the occasion, sporting a customized Louis Vuitton trunk commissioned by FIFA. So as you can see, whether you’re a football fan or not, the World Cup is definitely something you’re going to want to tune into this summer!
