Royal Wedding: Cara Delevingne breaks tradition with tuxedo outfit

Switched up her style for the big day!

Cara Delevingne made a style statement at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding by arriving in a sleek black tuxedo suit.

The supermodel opted for a twist on wedding attire by picking a fitted suit for the nuptials at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on Friday afternoon.

There was apparently a strict dress code for the wedding, with male guests being told to wear a morning suit and female guests told to wear a hat.

Well, Cara certainly wore a hat!

Eugenie's wedding dress was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos and featured long sleeves with a flowing train, folded shoulders, and a low back.

She specifically requested the low back as she wanted to show the scar on her spine from surgery to correct scoliosis at the age of 12.

She had told ITV's This Morning in an earlier interview: "I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you'll see on Friday [at the wedding], but it's a lovely way to honour the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this.

"I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it's really special to stand up for that."

The royal chose not to wear a veil, accessorising instead with the Greville Emerald tiara which she borrowed from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

She also wore earrings that were a wedding gift from Jack.

Eugenie and Jack invited 850 guests to join them at St. George's Chapel for their wedding day.

Around 1,200 members of the public were given special invitations to watch proceedings from within the grounds of Windsor Castle following a public ballot.

Representatives from charities supported by the couple were also given access to the castle grounds, where they can watch a live broadcast.

Eugenie and Jack announced on Friday morning they have chosen British fashion photographer Alex Bramall to take their wedding pictures, after he previously shot Eugenie for Harper's Bazaar magazine.

He said: "It is an honour and a privilege to be invited to photograph Princess Eugenie and Jack on this most special of days. I look forward with great excitement to capturing this significant occasion and wish them both a happy future together."

The wedding had an autumnal theme, reflected in the choice of flowers and decorations in the chapel.

Floral designer Rob Van Helden is in charge of the floral displays, which have been created using foliage sourced from Windsor Great Park combined with roses, spray roses, hydrangeas, dahlias and berries.

Eugenie, 28, and Jack, 32, met when they were both on skiing holidays to the same resort in Switzerland seven years ago.

In an interview with This Morning's Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that aired on Friday morning, Eugenie said it had been "love at first sight".

Jack added: "We were skiing with friends and I saw her first. Then we just stared at each other."

Eugenie laughed: "I thought, 'What a silly hat! Who is that?' And then he came over and shook my hand and it was all butterflies and nervous.

"I think I rang my mum that night and said, 'I've just met this guy Jack!' I remember thinking, 'I really like this guy, I hope he likes me too!'"

Jack described Eugenie as a "bright, shining light", while Eugenie said: "Jack is the kind of guy, you know when you are lost at a party and you can't find anyone to talk to and you start panicking and you need help? He walks in, makes everybody feel so special. He will scoop you up, talk to you and make you feel a million dollars. He is so humble and generous. That person you know immediately you've got a friend."

The couple announced their engagement through Buckingham Palace in January.

Jack proposed during a holiday to Nicaragua, presenting Eugenie with a padparadscha sapphire ring surrounded by diamonds.

He got down on one knee after the couple hiked to a beautiful spot next to a lake, with a volcano in the background.

Eugenie previously told BBC's The One Show: "It was really surprising, even though we'd been together seven years."

Eugenie is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew, The Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

Jack, meanwhile, works as European Brand Manager for George Clooney's tequila brand Casamigos.

His grandmother, Joanna Newton, 91, famously joked to Daily Mail earlier this year: "I never thought he would get married to a Royal. He's a charming boy and all that but not the most intelligent and I would never have thought this would happen.

"I just never thought it would go this far, her being a member of the Royal family. But Jack has always had lovely manners and has always been a good egg."

Princess Eugenie is ninth in line to the throne.

She and Jack are marrying at the same venue where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - now The Duke and Duchess of Sussex - tied the knot in May this year.
