In the online magazine of NET-A-PORTER.COM, Poppy Delevingne talks about her friendship with Alexa Chung, their common points and crazy nights 

For her first cover of The EDIT, the top POPPY DELEVINGNE sailed her girlfriend ALEXA CHUNG on a road trip getaway, and talks about her vision of friendship and the importance of supporting one another. 

Poppy and Alexa met 10 years ago, during a casting. At the time, Alexa was already ahead of the trends. "I remember having found her very beautiful, with her cat eyes, but also quite a tomboy. She wore skinny jeans ultra-tight - of course, I immediately wanted the same. I was far from suspecting that we would become so close. "

In addition to their shared passion for fashion, both women like to be spontaneous. "The turning point in our relationship is that midnight swim in the sea in Cannes. Unforgettable! While we tried our couture gowns in the bushes at four in the morning, I realized that this would be a friendship like no other. "

Both fashion lovers, they seem to be made for one another. Together, they all share the stories of their lives travelling across the world. "But this is Alexa who always has the best stories. I never get tired of listening to the stories of her love life. This is also why I invited to participate in this trip - we are both crazy with guys stories. They also eat pasta for breakfast, make topless tanning and have a true gift with people - in other words: this is the ideal girlfriend for a holiday. "

Poppy also talks about her relationship with her sister, Cara Delevingne, the top of which everyone speaks. "At work, it's different. I quickly realized that there was no possible competition with my sister Cara, because I want it too. I knew she would be a hit and it is therefore pointless to make comparisons. "

This exemplary attitude is not restricted to her sister. "Women who do not encourage each other, this is beyond me. Supporting friends and being surrounded by them is much more rewarding. Women do not get enough compliments and yet it is essential. Even if you are shy, this is positive energy that cheers up. "
