Not only does she have a glamorous career of working as a Model, TV Presenter and contributing editor for British Vogue, Alexa Chung also owns a striking style and a high-coveted wardrobe. With her effortless, chic approach to fashion always grabbing our attention, it is high time we had a closer look at this beautiful fashionistette.

Only 16 years old when she was scouted for Storm Models at Reading Festival 1999, it was destiny that Alexa was born to be a fashion icon. She went on to become a presenter highlighting her distinctive, unique style. Through this, she gained opportunities to interview fashion gods such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Roberto Cavalli and Karl Lagerfeld. Karl described her as “beautiful and clever… a modern girl”. How amazing!

Always spotted with a tan Mulberry Piccadilly bag, her love for the brand was apparent. After being snapped using a vintage Mulberry men’s briefcase as a handbag, Mulberry used this as inspiration for the spring/summer 2010 collection and designed a bag in her honour named “Alexa”. Since then, it has become an accessory phenomenon with stars like Sarah Jessica Parker, Claudia Schiffer, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Daisy Lowe spotted sporting their own.

Her approach to style continually stuns. Looking chic dressed up or dressed down, she mixes designer, vintage and high-street fashion perfectly. She possesses an ability to look cool whether she opts for a tomboyish look or goes for something glamorous. Alexa has definitely proved she is star style royalty having been described as a “phenomenon” by the notorious Anna Wintour!

Last year, she was awarded the British Style Award by the British Fashion Council. She also collaborated with Madewell designing a 60’s inspired collection which embraces her kooky style. Now the new face for Italian footwear brand, Superga,  it is clear to state that Alexa Chung is a rising style queen!  Don’t miss out on some worthy inspiration and follow her on Twitter.
