The latest London craze taking over Manhattan (and the US, for that matter) is Alexa Chung, the multi-talented, bi-cultural beauty who is no longer reserving those long legs of hers for the runways – or the British airways. The model/television presenter/writer has just touched down from London-town: Just landed in the big apple.
Alexa is my new obsession at the moment, though I have to admit I was an avid watcher of her show Popworld, back in the day when I lived in London. Not only does she stand out with her natural beauty, her own fashion style, and an interesting cultural background.
This British born model, journalist and TV hostess, is the daughter of a Chinese father and British mother, which is the essence of her exotic and captivating look. She is quirky, smart and sharp and always knows how to get the best out of the celebrities she interviews by asking them awkward and funny questions.
In 2007, Chung came to the attention of the fashion press for her distinctive, quirky style. She frequently appears on Best Dressed Lists, in fashion magazines and on the front row of fashion shows. She socialises with many well-known faces but has said the idea of lots of celebrity friends is “so cheesy”. She has dismissed the notion of being an It girl, saying “there’s not much to being an It girl. It’s really quite a depressing title to hold”.
Here are some images I have collected for you to get to know her style, and definitely stay tuned for my next post where I will tell you where and how to get her look.
Last week in New York’s MTV Studios, British celebrity and MTV presenter Alexa Chung was spotted wearing these Acne platforms.
