Move over K. Moss, there's a new girl in town and she's after your crown.
Yes, we're talking about the sultry citizen of the world and IT girl du jour, Alexa Chung. So influential Mulberry even named a bag after her, this Brit pop sensation has become one of the small island's most under estimated exports. Starting life on cheesy UK TV, Chung quickly chucked in the mini skirts and mackintosh jackets and headed for the high shine appeal across the pond.
Now a household name coveted by haute couture designers and style spotters, Alexa Chung has become famous for simply being fabulous. With a signature style that rivals the Olsen twins, Alexa proves that you don't need to be an A-lister to wear it with celebrity swagger. Teetering up red carpets in anything from a lamé tutu to peplum frill smock, her subtle yet effective style is turning heads on and off the crimson mile. From European minimalism to all out Hollywood glamour, this petite, brazen boy-bobbed new comer is taking the states by storm.
Looking back over a year of illustrious looks from the fresh faced talent, we steal her style for a party appropriate ensemble guaranteed to ensure your very own fan club for the evening...
