Alexa Does Marc, Two Ways


Alexa Chung is headed back to U.S. television next week with a new show, 24 Hour Catwalk. The jury is still out whether or not we’ll be tuning in, but we will 100 percent be charting Chung’s every fashion and beauty move as she hits the promotional circuit for the program. Her first stop came yesterday on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. At first glimpse, we thought Chung had plucked a choice piece of Marc Jacobs’ confectionery Louis Vuitton collection right off the Spring runway, but we later determined that she was actually wearing a coat from his own line as a dress. What’s particularly interesting about her look, however, is that Chung seems to have paired her MJ outfit with the beauty look Pat McGrath whipped up backstage at Vuitton. Those glossy, coral stained lips? Check. The black-rimmed lids and lots of lashes? Double check. A little Marc mixing and matching never hurt anyone—and happens to work particularly well here, if you ask us. Let it be known: Pastel makeup kills when paired with anything metallic. Don’t you agree?
