When stars hit the red carpet, they *bring it* in every possible way. From super-styled hair to perfectly-applied makeup to trendsetting fashion, the red carpet is the time for celebs to really do it big when it comes to head-to-toe style — getting creative and thinking outside of the box are required to achieve a truly unique look. While there are certain things we’ve become accustomed to seeing on the red carpet, like high heels (versus sneakers, for example), there are other trends that are rarely spotted (like mis-matching outfits). A celeb recently broke not one, but three red carpet rules with her look and looked seriously incredible doing it.


Poppy Delevingne’s outfit at the British Fashion Awards was totally unexpected — and awesome. The model and older sister to Cara Delevingne wore her hair without any style, turned to flats as her footwear of choice and wore two different patterns at the same time (a thick-striped dress and a crisscrossed collar). Um, and shout out to her floating, oversized collar, which is a statement in itself.

While we’ve def noticed celebs opting for more casual red carpet ‘dos than usual, Poppy’s locks looked particularly unfinished (in a good way). The faux collar she wore had the same thick, light pink and cream stripes as her dress but had a bedazzled criss-cross design on top of it, which created a really interesting pattern — a pattern on a pattern if you will. To finish off her look, Poppy opted for a pair of light pink, pointed flats instead of traditional heels — and we have to say, she totally pulled it off. It didn’t hurt that her makeup looked *flawless* either.

Since the holidays are officially here, take a cue from Poppy and don’t automatically throw on a super traditional holiday outfit this year. Instead, see how you can mix and match different items you own to create a unique look that you haven’t rocked before. No one wants to see the same holiday dress year after year, y’all.
