Yay, Nay, Or Eh? It’s All In The Mix
Despite a TV show that never quite caught on in the U.S. and a faint lingering of what-is-it-she-does-again, Alexa Chung has become a veritable style icon. (Just ask the customers—celebs included—eager to snap up Mulberry’s Alexa bag, or Chanel, which named her a brand ambassador.) As a result of the attention, she’s mostly traded her schoolgirl smocks and so-nerdy-they’re-cool shoes for sleek runway ensembles. But the look she adopted for a quick shopping trip in Silver Lake made us remember the dressed-down Alexa that originally caught our eye. The Isabel Marant tunic doesn’t quite go with the floppy leopard hat, white manicure, and, er, sensible sandals, but that’s precisely what we love about the pairing. What do you think? Is Alexa Chung a true fashion guru, or is it all bollocks?
