We first meet Poppy outside the runway show of Belgian designer Christian Wijnants, which we are both attending. The YouTube star is wearing a see-through coat with pink and purple details. She walks towards us in heels that give us instant anxiety. They are the kind of heels Lady Gaga wears, but she manages to make it look easy as fuck. Later, we find out that she used to do dance routines in them, so she’s used to the heels. Poppy greets us and we immediately seem to have a click.
She’s early, so we have a few minutes to take some quick photos outside the Palais de Tokyo. “Being in Paris is very inspiring to me, I try to come here as often as possible.” Poppy tells us. While waiting for the show to start, she also explains how she admires Belgian designers. The people at Christian Wijnants kept a good spot in the front row for Poppy to enjoy the show. When we’re exiting the location, she tells us how much she loved the vibrant collection.
