Does Poppy Delevingne's Wedding Dress Look Familiar?

If you’re a firm believer in the “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue” wedding superstition, then this one’s a doozy: British model and personality Poppy Delevingne (sister to supermodel Cara) just tied the knot in London wearing a Chanel dress that fits two of those criteria. The bride looked radiant in a Chanel Couture gown that “borrows” inspiration from look 64 in the spring 2009 collection — an “old” gown that was previously worn by Blake Lively.

The two dresses have tons in common, from the structured bodice with its short sleeves and shorter hemline, to the flowing sheer skirt at the bottom, to the allover floral appliqués. But while Lively’s was more of a bohemian take on the dress (with her braided pony, stacks of bracelets and bronzed glow), Delevingne’s is all bride — she’s got the perfectly coiffed waves, minimal jewels and, oh yeah, the lined skirt, to prove it.

Sister Cara served as maid of honor, recalling another famous British sister act by wearing a flowing cream-colored gown, plus black and white sandals and a topknot. (See a photo below.)

Blake Lively Wears the Holy Grail of Braids at Cannes (Plus, See Her Gucci Gown from Every Angle)

It’s true: We relish a Blake Lively red carpet cameo. And lucky for us (and all you other Blake style enthusiasts out there), we just got our second “Wow” moment of the month. After making jaws drop in a sequin champagne-hued Gucci Première gown at the Met Gala, the star is at it again in another head-turning design by the label.

Lively kicked off the Cannes Film Festival at the Grace of Monaco premiere in a oxblood chiffon dress featuring a thigh-high slit and open back detailing. (See it in motion at left!) And while it’s no surprise the face of Gucci fragrances is often dressed in their designs, we’re still always mesmerized by how perfectly they fit her. She accessorized with ruby-and-diamond Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings and gold Casadei sandals.

“Lorraine Schwartz made the most amazing earrings ever,” Lively told PEOPLE. “She actually made them for the Met, but we ended up thinking they would look better with this dress so we saved them for Cannes.”

Probably more captivating than the dress? Her long messy braid. From the front it looks like a basic slicked back pony, but from the back the mega-plait can be studied in all its glory. It’s a really fun formal braid look (though for a daytime style, we love Lively’s fishtail.)

Naturally, the face of L’Oréal Paris had an on-point beauty look as well — an allover bronze glow, heavily-lined smoky eye and nude lips. Really the only thing missing is her hot husband Ryan Reynolds on her arm. What do you think of Lively’s look? Does it top her Met Gala moment? Is she the Queen of Cannes so far?

Ryan Reynolds Joins Wife Blake Lively as a Face of L'Oréal Paris

It’s no surprise that the Lively-Reynoldses are more attractive than your average couple. Just how much more attractive? Well, they’re now officially the first husband/wife duo to be signed as spokespeople for a beauty brand: Ryan Reynolds has signed on as the face of L’Oréal Paris Men Expert just a few months after wife Blake Lively announced her new gig with the line.

One key difference: Reynolds is a global spokesman, meaning that you won’t see his ads in the U.S. But our friends in Europe will be treated to smoldering photos of the star (like the one below) as he represents Hydra Energetic skincare. Said Reynolds in a statement (we can just picture him writing out drafts and having Lively read them for final approval): “I feel honored and excited to join Men Expert, a brand that represents the essence of modernity, edginess and technology. I love the driving force that leads it to constantly provide the best products for men like me who are always doing 1000 things at the same time.”

NYFW 2014: The A-Listers Finally Brave the Cold for Hugo Boss and Michael Kors

Whether it’s the cold (they’re all on their yachts in the Caribbean), the grueling pace of awards season (they’re all lying down somewhere with wine nearby) or some other mysterious reason, the stars haven’t been shining as brightly at this season’s New York Fashion Week. There are the stalwarts, like Solange Knowles and Anna Kendrick, who bravely attend every show (sometimes bare-legged!) but it’s been a long time since a February front row looked like this.

We were starting to wonder if the high-wattage stars were going to be staying indoors until the Oscars, but that ended Wednesday, as Michael Kors and Jason Wu (showing his first collection for Hugo Boss) lured some Hollywood heavyweights back from their private islands to take in the shows in N.Y.C.
