Poppy Delevingne is in the midst of a fashion moment, perpetuating almost every fashion publication, blog and news sites. If you don’t know her, where have you been?! You are probably pondering, “Where did she come from?”
Poppy is the granddaughter of Sir Jocelyn Stevens; media magnate and former MD of The Evening Standard. Her mother is Selfridges personal shopper, Pandora, and her father Charles is a property developer. With such affluent roots, it is no surprise that Miss Delevingne was brought up with the likes of Lily Allen and the Jagger children, attending the same Hampshire boarding school, Bedale’s. To add to her elite connections, Nicholas Coleridge, Condé Nast’s managing director, is considered her godfather. Her connection to the fashion and Arts industry doesn’t end there.
