A front row regular, Alexa Chung looks chic in Ralph Lauren sunglasses in houndstooth print and a butter dress, next to Olivia Palermo. Chung graces the cover of Time Out New York, the spring issue, where she talks about her favorite topic: fashion. Specifically, her fashion faux-pas: “I got punk a bit wrong when I was 17. I misinterpreted it and crossed it with some weird Pokémon-Tamagotchi hybrid.” After moving to New York, the British TV personality made an impression about Americans: “I’m always amazed by how thick and shiny everyone’s hair is and how white everyone’s teeth are.” She also says that she doesn’t know how to dress for spring-summer weather in New York, because she doesn’t want to show a lot of flesh. However, she has a small apartment in East Village, and she loves it, despite being a bit messy and unorganized.

Alexa Chung took home all the awards that she was nominated for at this week’s British Fashion Awards. She was given the British Style Award for the third year in a row as voted by the public. Even from this point, the TV personality admits that she can’t resist a shopping spree. “There was a time when I started thinking about it too much and it got weird but now I just dress to please myself,” she told GraziaDaily. “The main point is I’m still excited by clothes and excited by fashion. It’s innately something I’m drawn to so I literally can’t walk down the street without dodging into places, which annoys my friends.” As for the once piece that she’s can’t get enough of, Chung told the press: “[I love denim hot pants.] Everyone’s sick of seeing them, but they’re really comfy and I wear them constantly. When I travel, I pack them in my bag to take in the plane so they don’t get lost.” Pictured here at an Erdem fashion show, Alexa Chung is wearing houndstooth round Ralph Lauren sunglasses, a street style favorite of the past few seasons.

If anyone can rock geek chic glasses, that person is Alexa Chung! The 28 year old fashionista donned a pair of Ray Ban eyeglasses and a horse pendant over a black dress recently, and she looked great as ever. With a Mulberry bag named after her and a collaboration line with Madewell, Chung also has a column in British Vogue and is hosting 24 Hour Runway on the Lifetime channel. The former model still gets the time to be the face of Superga sneakers and Lacoste’s Joy of Pink fragrance. But how does she cope with being the it girl of the moment for a few good years now? Tough to say. According to Celebuzz, she’s one of the 25 women that changed the way we dress, along with Diane von Furstenberg, Audrey Hepburn or Coco Chanel, so that’s even more pressure to be always ahead of the trends and dressed to the nines. But, as long as there’s a sit in the front row at every fashion show for Chung, we think she’ll do alright!

Known for her spotless style at all times, 28 year old Alexa Chung is one of the guests of honor at any fashion event. However, her preference for the British designers is no secret: “I’m a typical Brit – I love a good bargain and I love wearing clothes,” she says.”British fashion is very important to me. There are so many amazing designers and I like to wear British designers wherever I can.” After modelling for brands like DKNY Jeans, Vero Moda, Superga, Pepe Jeans and Lacoste, it’s now time for Alexa to become the new face of label Maje, a French label. Does that count as cheating towards British brands? Either way, the model/socialite is now attending Paris Couture Week, and she’s been front row at Chanel, together with names like Anna Wintour, Clemence Poesy, Sofia Coppola or Diane Kruger. In one of her quirky signature looks, here’s Alexa in lace and layers, with Ray Ban sunglasses on.

After posting a picture on Instagram where she appeared too thin, the press trashed Alexa Chung, calling her “disgusting and skinny”. However, the TV personality/model argued that she’s not promoting an unhealthy body image and that she’s naturally skinny, after which she made her Instagram private. However, she keeps on parading her stick-thin legs in short shorts and mini skirts, proud of her looks that took her so far in the fashion and TV industry. And she’s not lacking male attention: after a four year relationship with Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner, Chung appears to be dating another rock star, Albert Hammond of The Strokes. The musician previously dated model Agyness Deyn, so there’s a lot of pressure on this relationship from all sides. The new relationship is not confirmed, but the couple did attend a fashion event together. And as further proof that Chung is not upset by the deformed image the press gives her, here she is having coffee with a friend, and rocking her iconic Chanel bag and Prada sunglasses from the Minimal Baroque collection.
