There's a certain look required at royal events and for weddings in particular, the uniform is a brightly coloured dress, dramatic fascinator (the bigger, the better), a modest hemline and ideally, a piece made by a British designer.

But Cara Delevingne, former supermodel turned actress, doesn't play by anybody's rules of expectations, royal or otherwise, and shunned traditional attire in favour of a tailored black suit, complete with cumberbund and top hat. The 26-year-old arrived with style writer Derek Blasberg and separate from her older sister Poppy, who opted for a baby blue semi-sheer dress with feathered fascinator.

Cara's decision to do wedding guest attire her own way has been widely praised by fashion watchers.
