Last month, some wondered whether Delevingne broke the dress code Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, had reportedly issued to guests before their wedding.

According to the Daily Mail, Delevingne also told Grazia magazine that she “found it interesting how many people came up” to her during Eugenie’s wedding and said, “‘You’re so brave to wear that!'”
