International star and fashion icon, Alexa Chung is in the spotlight this week as we review her incredible personal style and browse through some of her fabulous wardrobe choices. Model, contributing editor at British Vogue and TV host, Alexa has graced covers of magazines, as well as sat in the front rows of some of the world’s most coveted fashion shows. This girl’s got it all, not only looks but brains, too!
Alexa Chung started out co-hosting small TV gigs in the early 2000’s and moved up in the ranks to host her own shows on MTV, eventually falling into modeling. With a beautiful face, quirky personality and a style to boast, it was the perfect fit! She was gaining traction as a fashion model for DKNY, Pepe Jeans and Lacoste when she decided to branch out yet again – this time into fashion editing. She officially was named a contributing editor for Vogue in 2009 and a cover shoot followed shortly after. Did you know she’s graced the cover of British Vogue no less than three times now?
We love her fearless sense of style because she continuously lets her personality shine through her outfits. She is a classic girl at heart, as if you couldn’t tell by her mostly black and white wardrobe. She often dons a little black dress with a fresh face and accents of minimal sparkling jewels. Topping the ‘Best Dressed’ list on more than one occasion and in more than one publication, Alexa Chung has an effect similar to that of Kate Middleton.
Oh you know how it goes: one of them shows up wearing a tailored day dress in a gorgeous color and next thing you know it’s sold out! While Chung may not be royalty, her style certainly commands attention! She often carries a handbag for no longer than a week before it is getting restock requests. Beloved British brand, Mulberry, even named a bag after this international style star in 2009 – it was of course an instant sell out!
A style muse to the likes of Valentino, Chanel, Mulberry and many more, this girl can be seen sitting front row to all the hottest fashion show next to friends like Kate Moss, Pixie Geldof and even editorial queen herself, Anna Wintour. Most of the time she’ll be wearing posh designer dresses and Mulberry handbags, but every once in a while we’ll see her don a bohemian, almost urban chic ensemble. We love that she’s able to actively switch it up whenever she feels like, just because she feels like it.
Take notes from style star Alexa Chung by letting your heart lead you to wear whatever you wish and with no restrictions! And if you’re lucky enough, you too may be able to snag one of the pieces in her very own line due to launch this year! Cheers to this beautiful girl and to fearless personal style!
