I’ve been a huge fan of Alexa Chung for quite a few years now. When I happened to pass her at Lollapalooza in 2009 and then her show “It’s on with Alexa Chung” played on MTV, she became an instant girl crush.
Now a days when I need some inspiration in my style, I tend to scroll through her tag on Tumblr to find some outfit ideas. Case in point: after she showed up at the Topshop Unique show with braided pigtails, I decided to try out the look on myself and got a lot of compliments. Mainly from men, but I’ll cringe at that fact later.
Chung is a lady with who I feel I could grab a beer with and have a great time. A great laugh. And doesn’t seem like a stuck up individual. Back when I lived in London, I met her at Liberty London for the launch of her book “It.” She is absolutely gorgeous and lights up a room immediately. She’s beyond sweet and complimented my eyes (squeal!). Plus, she looked so amazing in a simple dress.
Since she is a model, she has an insider look into the fashion industry and I think the YouTube video below is a great, satirical viewpoint of Alexa Chung on the fashion industry.
Hope you enjoy!
