By a reader and fellow bloggers request I am devoting a blog post over to style icon of the moment Alexa Chung. I don’t normally follow celebrity fashionistas bar Chloe Sevigny, but I must admit that Alexa is one heck of a clothes hanger. She can transform the simplest Breton top into the trendiest piece of the season, and she is indeed the girl who revamped this trend. Her exotic looks which stem from a British mother and Chinese Father can transcend every look from grunge, classic tomboy, to quintessential British chic, and couture. She has proved herself to be quite the style chameleon and holds as much esteem in the style stakes as long standing style superiors Chloë Sevigny and Kate Moss. Below are my top 8 Alexa looks.

1st Image: Alexa graces the front page of French Jalouse magazine.
2nd Image: Attending a Chanel fashion show in an Isabel Marant Paddington jacket.
3rd Image: Sporting a Breton top and Hunter Wellingtons at a festival.
4th Image: British Chic on the streets of London.
5th Image: Preppy and perfect in a Burberry Trenchcoat.
6th Image: Supporting British fashion designers in a nude dress by Poltock & Walsh.
7th Image: Looking frou frou in a Luella frock.
8th Image: Romantic and beautiful in couture Giambatista Valli for Harpers Bazaar magazine.


  1. Fuck, the 5th image is perfect.
    That Irina chick you were talking about the other day hasn't got a patch on Chung.

  2. Oh Style Sphere, you do know how to make a girl's heart sing.
    Also...but you missed one of my fav Alexa outfits ever...London Fashion Week F/W 08/09 - Luella skirt, printed T from Animal house, navy cardy and chunky YSL heels. PERFECT.
    Anyway, I hate the Glastonbury pic but absolutely adore the Garance Dorée one.

  3. Yeah I love that one too but I only chose was a tough one X

  4. She's so great!
