​This weekend, Poppy Delevingne launched her second collaboration with swimwear label Solid & Striped at a Shopbop-hosted Coachellapool party. We chatted to the model about how she gets readys for festivals and the beach.

Tell us a little bit about the collaboration

“With this season’s collection, we grew up a little. I went for more muted but luxurious colours – a lot of navy and barely there pink, mixed with chicer silhouettes. I so loved doing the last collection, which was all swimwear, and this time I felt like we needed to evolve further into introducing more cover-ups. Plus, rather cheekily, I wanted something to wear post-pool and beach.”

What outfits did you pack for Coachella?

“The packing was a little chaotic I have to say. There are bits of Chloé, Topshop, Rag & Bone, Burberry and, of course, Solid & Striped. I’m a pretty spontaneous dresser, not a lot of thought goes into it, so I’ll get dressed in the morning and hope to look half-decent as I step out into the sunshine.”

How do you get ready for Coachella?

“I juice and hydrate like a crazy person. I fill myself up with as much green goodness as possible and I prepare an ultimate music playlist that gives me festival butterflies. Oh, and I stock up on Ray-Bans.”

Who are your festival style icons?

”Kate Bosworth and Kate Moss. Those two pretty much nail it every time.”

What is your favourite Coachella memory?

“Having my hen there two years ago. There were 27 of us (boys and girls, including my husband) and I didn’t stop laughing from start to finish.”

What piece of clothing could you not live without at a festival?

Good shoes are key. This year I have my Aquazzura star sandals from my collaboration with them. You can run a marathon in them.”

What are your festival beauty must-haves?

“Sisley SPF30 for my face and body, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow, a MAC (Ruby Woo) lipstick, Tuberose Angelica Cologne by Jo Malone London, Elemis eye masks and Chanel Inimitable mascara. Burberry also do an amazing deodorant that I just discovered. It’s like heaven in a bottle.”

What beauty products can you not live without when you are travelling?

“A hydrating Sisley mask, Lucas Pawpaw Ointment for my lips and MV Organic Skincare Rose Hydrating Mist.”

How do you get bikini body ready?

“I do Body by Simone classes in LA. It’s basically a dance class with weights in between. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley put me on to it and I’ve never looked back.”

What tips do you have for feeling confident in a bikini?

“Wear a bikini that you love and feel comfortable in. Enjoy yourself, and the rest will follow.”

What’s your favourite thing about summer?

“Getting freckles all over my face, ice-creams every day, beach hair that makes you look a little bonkers and bare feet.”

Which trends are you most looking forward to wearing this summer?

“All-out colour. I want to look like a rainbow.”

Lipstick or lipgloss?

“Lipstick. Always.”

Serum or oil?

“Serum, I think. I have this fantastic one from MBR, a German brand I discovered on a trip to Munich.”

Smokey eyes or red lips? 

“Red lips that last.”

Yoga or spinning? 

“Spinning. I’m a spin freak.”

Braid or ponytail?

“Nothing beats the braid brigade…”
