Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss' roadtrip has got some serious competition when it comes to being the best BFF road trip ever. Brit models Poppy Delevingne and Alexa Chung went on a girlie trip of their own, which was accompanied with a photoshoot, and it made us all wish we could tag along.

It seems that Alexa has always been something of a fashion icon to Poppy, who not long ago had a Marrakesh wedding bash, which her bestie attended. According to Poppy, everything Chung (as she affectionately calls her) wears, she makes desirable.

"She was wearing skinny jeans that I wanted/needed in my life immediately – a feeling I had no idea would resonate every time I saw her," Poppy wrote in Net-A-Porter's The Edit, referring to the first time she met Alexa at a model casting ten years ago. Her admiration also extends to how Alexa can "bring a suitcase the size of a piece of calamari and yet each day she’ll wear something mouth-wateringly stylish."

"I'm guaranteed to have a smile on my face when she's around," she added of Alexa, who apparently has a low attention span and who can't actually drink very much. Ah, what does it matter when Poppy calls her "the perfect vacation companion"?

In their adorable video, Alexa admitted that she's always felt like roadtrips are meant to be in America, as Poppy declared that she would like to drive a car in India. "Actually your driving would suit that very well," Alexa decided.

Playing This or That, Alexa picked brains over beauty while Poppy picked being a girl over a boy because "Boys are...smelly." Also, which would they rather be; Cara Delevingne or Kate Moss? Find out yourself at 2:30.
