"She's what I go to school for." - Charlie Simpson
More famous nowadays for her edgy style and head-turning figure, fashionphile Alexa Chung has long surpassed her days as T4 Presenter. Girls want to be her; clothes want to be worn by her; & don't get my started on those envious pins... my list of reasons why she is my fashion icon could fill this entire blog! But before I start gushing (this is only my second week after all!) let's take a look at the ex-model in action...
Forever effortlessly cool, her ease at putting outfits together comes as a welcome relief, especially when you compare her to the likes of A listers Cheryl Cole or Victoria Beckham, who, in their quest to look chic and 'a la mode' can sometimes appear a little contrived. So it is in no surprise to find out that trend school is cool is back on the high street, & I have a sneaking suspicion champion of the preppy look, Alexa, may have had something to do with this.
