Alexa Chung rocks floral Valentino in the Big Apple

We might have forgotten about flowers as far as growing them in our gardens go, but wearing them on our clothes is still as hot a trend as ever. And style maven and it girl (just don’t let her know you’re calling her an it girl!) Alexa Chung is walking proof of that! Alexa headed to New York City earlier this week to launch her brand new book It, and rocked an attention-grabbing dark floral dress from the Valentino autumn/winter 2013 collection for her promotional appearance. See if Valentino ad Alexa Chung say it’s ok to wear flowers in November, there’s no reason you shouldn’t either! Although Alexa’s Valentino dress was intricate and extravagant, she toned down the look and made it more casual by sporting some black tights (although that might have been a decision influenced by the weather!) and cute black Louis Vuitton pumps with a bow on the front. Aww! She completed her look with her signature black-lined eyes and messy up-do. Another style triumph, we reckon. What say you? [Image]

Alexa Chung gets sexy for Flare’s November issue

Is it just us or is Alexa Chung getting hotter with every magazine cover shoot? Can’t be just us, surely? We know that the Chungster is a big hit with the ladies because of her unrivalled style and sartorial choices, but we think her latest magazine cover shoot for Flare’s November issue will get the boys’ blood pumping too. Inside the mag, Alexa opens up about about a variety of different topics, including turning 30 (which she’ll be doing very soon if you can believe it!) , her jobs, and of course, her love life. “I’m a serial monogamist. I can’t just casually sleep with boys. It’s just not for me,” she said. “Call me old-fashioned. I don’t sleep with people I don’t find interesting, or whose brain isn’t the main turn-on for me. It’s not like I just get all, ‘Oh, he’s fit.’ It’s often there’s a deeper connection, so it just means it lasts a bit longer.” And how does she feel about dating in the Big Apple now that she spends a lot of her time there? “There’s a richness of incredibly intelligent, talented and f*cking interesting women in New York and far fewer men,” she continued “I’m always helping out girlfriends and then I’m wondering, who’s going to look after me? But it’s because I seem like I have my shit together. That’s not necessarily the case.” We don’t think Alexa Chung will have any trouble finding a boyfriend. What’s not to love about her? (Rhetorical question, obviously!)

Alexa Chung talks It girl status in October’s Nylon

Alexa Chung is on fire this month. As well as launching her brand new book It, covering British Vogue’s latest issue and finding herself on the front row of the hottest designers this Fashion Week, you can also see her fronting the October issue of Nylon. Doesn’t she look great rocking her signature androgynous look? The 29-year-old is posing in some gorgeous designer threads from Louis Vuitton to Chanel to all else in-between in the editorial, as she also opens up about her ‘It’ girl status and her portrayal as a fashion maven… “I could never be that earnest about giving fashion advice because I don’t want people to think that I think I’m that great,” she said, before telling the mag what she thought about being referred to as an “it” girl. “It’s a funny title,” she continued. “The older I get, the more I’m like, ‘Oh it’s not that bad.’ But when ‘It’ was first stuck on me, I was like, ‘No, I’m not!’ I felt like that label was reserved for girls who were famous for being famous. “Is Kate Moss still an It Girl? Charlotte Rampling? Jane Birkin? I wouldn’t rank myself alongside those women, but if the It Girls of yesteryear are still ‘It,’ I don’t think any of them lost what they made them unique.” They definitely haven’t, and we don’t think Alexa will either. We can’t wait to get our hands on this issue; well played Nylon!

Alexa Chung wears Carven for ‘It’ book launch

One minute we’re talking about her British Vogue October issue front cover, and the next we’re gushing over her appearance at the launch of her debut book. Yep, we really can’t get enough of Alexa Chung, and judging by the picture above, we’re sure you can see why. The British style maven looked gorgeous in an off-the-shoulder Carven creation for the launch of her debut book, It, at Liberty in London yesterday. Although the dress was pretty feminine, she maintained her signature tomboy look by opting for a disheveled updo, minimal make-up, and flat shoes. Alexa also opted to wear a Carven number to the GQ Men of the Year Awards, so it looks like the brand is becoming one of her firm favourites. They certainly are a match made in heaven! Do you like Alexa’s look? Will you be buying It? [Image]

Alexa Chung is British Vogue’s October cover girl!

Well if it isn’t Alexa Chung on the front cover of British Vogue’s October issue! She was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, and is rocking the perfect balance of edgy, quirky, natural and feminine with a white strapless dress, hat, and barely-there make-up. This is Alexa’s third cover of the fashion Bible, so she must have done something right the first two times to and a very impressive third cover. We predict that just like her previous two issues, this will also fly off the shelves. No one can really get enough of Alexa Chung, can they? And speaking of not getting enough of Alexa Chung – she will be taking over Vogue.co.uk and will spill the beans on her debut book It, her wardrobe essentials for the new season and much more. Exciting times!

Alexa Chung’s debut make-up range!

Exciting news for all Alexa Chung fans. I.e. everyone! Our fave TV presenter and all-round style maven is launching her very own beauty collection! We know what you’re thinking – what took her so long, right? Alexa has teamed up with British eye make-up brand Eyeko for her debut capsule collection, and although there are no deets on what products we can expect yet, we can almost guarantee that liquid eyeliner will feature somewhat prominently. “I met up with Max from Eyeko and we got along very well, I was inspired by his energy and the products themselves,” Alexa told Vogue. “So I started scribbling down ideas about how they could improve them and coming up with little puns that I could see or imagine on the barrels of the tubes. I just felt the whole company seemed fun and it got my creative juices flowing and it became quite an organic collaboration”. Alexa Chung and Eyeko seem like a match made in beauty heaven and we can’t wait to find out more info on this collaboration. Watch this space! [My Daily]

Alexa Chung does Chanel chic at the Grand Palais in Paris

  Sure Alexa Chung does dressed-down androgynous meets schoolgirl chic like no other, but she knows how to do ladylike and classy too. In fact not only does she know how to do it, but she knows how to excel in it; rock it, if you will. Take her look for the Chanel Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris, for example… Alexa took a leaf out of Jennifer Aniston’s book by opting for a short, little black dress, but unlike Jen who considers her LBD her go-to, safe outfit, this was sort of out of Alexa’s sartorial comfort zone. The ladylike lace sleeves are something we would expect from Kate Middleton (in fact it was one of the defining aspects of her wedding dress, remember?) but not from Alexa. That being said, she pulled them – and the entire look – off perfectly, and her personal style wasn’t lost either thanks to the chic but slightly messy updo and the quirky buckle sandals. And her look wouldn’t have been complete without that stunning Chanel bag draped over her shoulder! The Chungmeister got it right once again – no surprises there!

Alexa Chung: “I look back and think, ‘Did you really need an 18-year-old girl to strip in your front room?’”

It’s no secret that we love Alexa Chung, and we’re pretty sure that she’d say she’s pretty chuffed with the way her life panned out too. After all, she’s a successful TV presenter, fashion glossy and ad campaign star, and general fashion ‘it’ girl with her own book coming out very soon. However, Alexa opened up to The Times about a time in her life that wasn’t quite as sweet – i.e. her teenage modelling days! “I actually kept modelling very separate,” she said. “I never really asked my mum or my dad’s advice during that time and it actually felt like I didn’t want to tell them too much about the reality of what was going on – when I was taking the train to London and being asked to do certain things. “I already knew it was wrong. So, you know, if there was a casting where some creepy man there had gone on to his flat in Ilford, and, you know, ‘Take your clothes off…’ and if I’d have done it, I won’t tell my mum because I know that’s wrong. “In hindsight, I look back and think, ‘Did you really need an 18-year-old girl to strip in your front room?’ I get flashbacks now. Loads of flashbacks. I’ll be reminded of something because I’ve sort of blocked it out and I don’t really think of those days. We bet she’s glad those times are behind her! [Daily Mail]

Alexa Chung does edgy workwear in House of Holland

Henry Holland, i.e. he of the swish “must-be-seen-at” parties, hosted a dinner in New York last night to celebrate his brand new Resort collection. And as you can imagine, it was attended by some of the hottest and most fashionable folk in the industry. Never one to miss a Henry Holland bash was our girl Alexa Chung, who once again looked effortlessly chic and stylish in her perfectly put together ensemble. She rocked up to the dinner in a quirky House of Holland pencil skirt (far longer than her usual hemlines, we must say!), which she accessorised with a sharp shirt, a Mulberry satchel, and a fierce leather jacket for that much-needed edge and grunge factor. Alexa loves a bit of school-girl aesthetic, but her look has definitely matured on this occasion, as her sartorial inspiration was more office woman than school girl. Flawless, as usual though. We miss you Chungers, come back to the UK soon, please! [Image]
