Alexa Chung turns Tommy Hilfiger guest editor

We can barely keep track of Alexa Chung’s list of fashion collaborations, especially now yet another one has been announced. Her latest project? Alexa Chung, presenter and style maven, has been tapped by Tommy Hilfiger as a guest editor for the autumn/winter 2014 season. How exciting! This means that we will see her choose and style a selection of products on the Tommy Hilfiger website and in stores each and every month – starting from this month until January next year – in order to give us inspiration while shopping. “Alexa is the true definition of an ‘It’ girl — she’s cool, witty, smart and has a great sense of style,” Tommy Hilfiger told WWD. “She knows how to mix of-the-moment styling with classic design for a unique look that’s totally her own.” We couldn’t agree more. And it sounds like the lady herself is pretty chuffed with her new role too… “To be embraced by such a behemoth of an American fashion brand is a huge honour,” she added. Aww! We have every faith that Alexa will bring her own unique British meets androgynous meets casual meets quirky style to the Tommy Hilfiger brand. We can’t wait to see her first edit! [Fashion United]

Alexa Chung oozes sexy femininity in Burberry

Our invite to Nick Grimshaw’s birthday party must have got lost in the post, but despite not being there we know for a fact that two beautiful British things were present. 1.) Alexa Chung and 2.) Burberry. While we aren’t surprised to see Alexa wearing British brand Burberry, we weren’t expecting to see her in such a daring, sexy, and dare we say, feminine ensemble; especially for something as casual and personal as a good friend’s birthday party. A big red carpet event, sure, but not a night out in London! Alexa wore a gorgeous silk Georgette dress with a beautiful intricate print from the Burberry Prorsum autumn/winter 2014 collection, which she teamed with Bionda Castana Nicole mid-heels, a gold chain and a matching blue and white fur stole. We just can’t get over the above-the-thigh slit! More feminine sexy looks please, Alexa!

Alexa Chung collaborates with AG Jeans on a denim collection!

It’s been a few weeks since we posted that Alexa Chung beauty tutorial YouTube video, which means you’ve probably perfected her signature eye flick by now. Well, now we are giving you the chance to dress your lower body like her too, as it’s just been announced that she will be launching her very own denim collection. Squeal! Alexa Chung, who seldom fails to look incredible in a pair of jeans or anything made from the denim material for that matter, will be teaming up with AG Jeans for a limited edition 20-piece collection of jeans, dungarees and denim dresses. “The collection is inherently the missing pieces of my dream denim wardrobe, which, as ever, is predominantly inspired by a late Sixties, early Seventies aesthetic,” she said. That’s right, we can expect pieces inspired by those very fashionable decades, in colours such as the classic Wrangler and Lee shades of blue, as well as “palest pink, cream, rusty red and]washed army green.” Certainly sounds like she knows what she wants! She even visited the 400,000 square foot factory for maximum research and inspiration… “I found the trip incredibly inspiring and an opportunity to learn about denim and make things I had been dreaming about finding,” she added. We genuinely can’t wait for this collection to become available. Stay tuned for more info – especially some pictures, hopefully! – as and when we get it! This has definitely been a long time coming. Are you excited for Alexa’s first collection? [WWD] [Image]

WATCH how to get Alexa Chung’s iconic 60s make-up look… by Alexa Chung herself!

You can’t stay on YouTube for longer than five minutes without running into a celebrity-inspired make-up tutorial, but you don’t often find aforementioned tutorials by the celebs themselves. Hence why we were doubly thrilled to find an Alexa Chung make-up video by none other than Alexa Chung herself. What a wonderful Monday treat! Make-up artist Lisa Eldridge, who regularly does Alexa’s make-up, has made a video that aims to show us how to get Alexa’s coveted sixties look. The video features the ladies talking us through Alexa’s make-up from start to finish, tells us what products they use so we can go out and get them ourselves (FYI – they use everything from Chanel to Rimmel to her very own Eyeko range so it’s a real mixed bag, which is exactly what we like to see!) and even shows us how Alexa does her signature feline flick with liquid eyeliner herself. If only all make-up tutorials were this star-studded! Watch the video below to see the before and after transformation!

Alexa Chung suits up in red velvet Saint Laurent

We know that Alexa Chung is a fan of the androgynous look – that’s not news to us, or anyone for that matter – so when we heard that she was spotted in a red suit, we didn’t really bat an eyelid. We expected her to look cracking, as always, but we didn’t actually expect what we saw. Style maven Alexa Chung joined a host of other fabulously dressed people at the My Theresa and Anya Hindmarch party at London’s Royal Academy of Arts, and opted to wear a stunning red velvet skirt suit by Saint Laurent for the occasion. Didn’t expect us to say “skirt”, did you? Alexa looks fabulously feminine in her matching skirt suit, which she accessorised with a simple black tee underneath and Tabitha Simmons flat shoes. Some things never change, eh? And we’re glad of it too – one of the many things we love about Alexa is her ability to always stay true to herself. We love this look; and the golden glow is a fab addition, too!

Lea Seydoux vs. Alexa Chung…Who wore Miu Miu better?

Faced with two exceptionally well-dressed women, the decision to pick a winner is never easy. This week, making us tear our hair out (dramatic, we know) are Lea Seydoux and Alexa Chung in the same spring 2014 Miu Miu dress. On the one hand we have a chic Frenchie, who loves nothing more than oozing that je ne sai quoi with every red carpet look she sports; on the other, a Brit famed worldwide for her threw-it-together-and-walked-outta-the-house approach to dressing. Tough one, no? Getting first dibs on the pretty printed number was Lea, who wore it to the  EE Rising Star award nominations photo call back in January. Styled with embellished Miu Miu pumps, a simple, centre-parted hairdo and minimal make-up, Lea’s look made for striking eye-opener at the event. Alexa gave the dress its second outing, at the Miu Miu Women’s Tales 7th Edition – Spark & Light screening in February, in New York City. The long-limbed beauty naturally put her stamp on the ultra-feminine look, by accessorising with a snake-print bag and pointy black boots. A causal, low-slung pony tail and her signature liner-flicked eyes completed the look. So, whose look comes out top? Both ladies look exceptionally polished in their own ways, but we’re going to give this one to…wait for it…Alexa! Surprised? Well, Lea’s look may be the prim way to do a floral-print dress, but Alexa brings a certain daytime quality to her look; we can imagine styling it this way for the office, but we’d swap the salmon coloured bag for a teeny black shoulder bag. Thoughts? Whose look are you diggin’? [Images: Lea; Alexa]

Get Alexa Chung’s Carven/flats look

As we learnt last week while watching the latest Chanel Couture show, heels are pretty much a thing of the past as it’s all about flats, baby! Alexa Chung is one lady who didn’t need Karl Lagerfeld to convince her to step out in flats, as she’s been rocking the heel-less trend for years, which is probably why she does it so well. One of her latest looks is a perfect example of this, hence why we are more than happy to admit to stealing her style. It isn’t the cheapest of outfits this week, but both Carven dress and Charlotte Olympia flats can be classed as “investment pieces” that can be worn season after season. Winner! Broderie anglasie kiwi-print dress, £570, Carven available at Matches Kitty flat slippers, £458.53, Charlotte Olympia available at Far Fetch [Image]

Alexa Chung’s debut clothing line is launching next year!

We have many reasons to look forward to the new year, and one of them is definitely the arrival of style maven and it girl (just don’t call her an it girl to her face) Alexa Chung‘s debut fashion collection. We don’t know exactly what her fashion collection will entail just yet, and it doesn’t sound like she does either… “I need some time to think about it,” she said. “2014 is going to be the first opportunity where I haven’t had a nine-to-five job. I’ve kind of been doing Eyeko, I wrote a book, I did Fuse every day, and various other design gigs and DJing. So this will be the first time to actually sort of sit down and think about it.” We want her to come out with a cracking collection, but we hope she doesn’t take too much time working on it because we can’t wait to see it. We hope to see lots of cute flats, printed knits and dungarees in true Alexa style! [Vogue]

Alexa Chung is the new face of Longchamp!

Alexa Chung has followed in the footsteps of Coco Rocha and our very own Kate Moss, as she has become the latest face of French leather goods brand Longchamp! The spring/summer 2014 ad campaign images were shot in sunny St Tropez last month by Max Vadukul, and will break in the February editions of some of our favourite mags including Elle and Vogue. The main focus of the ads, apart from Alexa obviously, is the new drool-worthy Escales collection. “For the new Escales collection – which is cheerful, colourful and bursting with energy – we needed a woman who was both chic and modern,” said Marie-Sabine Leclercq, a spokesperson for the label. “Alexa Chung is the woman who embodies it the best. Her enchanting gaze, which is very strong and very present, gives the campaign a lot of personality. She has energy and confidence. “The whole team fell under her spell. She immediately had a real vision and made a very on-point contribution to the looks for the shoot. There was such a synergy and an energy that we all went home delighted with this initial experience with her.” Wow, we think that’s the highest praise we’ve ever heard someone give an ad campaign star; way to go Alexa! Maybe Longchamp will do a Mulberry and create a bag inspired by her since she impressed the brand so much… watch this space! [Vogue]
