Poppy is one of three daughters of Charles and Pandora Delevingne. The oldest is Chloe, who is also 33, and only 11 months older than Poppy. After Poppy, is Cara, who is currently 26 years old, making her five and six years younger than her sisters. Unlike her siblings, Chloe lives a pretty quiet life in England, away from the spotlight.
She Was Discovered
Like many people in the beauty industry, Poppy was discovered. When was a teenager by Storm Model Managament founder Sarah Doukas found her and signed her in 2008. Since then, she’s modeled for a number of brands like Burberry, Shiatzy Chen, Laura Ashley, Anya Hindmarch and Alberta Ferretti. Like her little sis, she also has experience on the runway and has walked for Julien Macdonald and Giles Deacon. The British native is also a brand ambassador for Chanel.
She’s an Actress
Poppy first made her acting debut on Maroon 5’s music video for “Sunday Morning” released in 2004, in which she played the karaoke singer. Four years later, she appeared on the film Liberty, alongside Tom Hardy and Gemma Arterton. Other roles include Kingsman: The Golden, in which she played Clara Von Gluckfberg and The Aspern Papers, where she played Signora Colonna.
Poppy has been married to former model James Cooke since 2014 after the two got engaged in 2012. Unlike Poppy, her husband’s job, which entails of being a CEO of a British Aviation company, keeps him away from the public eye. Clearly, opposites attract!
