Alexa Chung In Stella McCartney – Stella McCartney Special Presentation

Back home for London Fashion Week, Alexa Chung attended the Stella McCartney Special Presentation held in London on Saturday night.

Alexa honoured the designer by wearing a strapless black silk Stella McCartney gown.

The British Fashion Council just announced Alexa as its Young Style Ambassador, but after this ensemble they might want to reconsider.

Messy hair paired with a shapeless gown does absolutely nothing for her.

Accessories and combs don’t bite, Alexa.

    I don’t understand why the people love her? Her hair is ugly, and I think she wants to impose fashion but she wear something like weird combinations and that’s not looking good.

  2. bianca March 3, 2012 at 13:16 #

    she looks like a crazy person!

    sigh, this kid always looks soo rough I dont know what it is , its either the hair or makeup every time I see her she just looks rough sigh. This straight out of bed look is not working for her pretty self 🙁

    I love it! Ultimate minimalism, doesnt need any accessories, and the hair is just a nice bit of texture.

  5. tina February 22, 2012 at 15:26 #

    someone please , please give her a hair brush

  6. yesferdinand February 22, 2012 at 14:19 #

    Please, the hair! does she even have a comb? I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!
    I mean seriously why people still love her.

    I’m from Indonesia and many people (sadly) worship her. SHE is SERIOUSLY overrated.

  7. Ayishaa February 22, 2012 at 09:43 #

    What on earth is this??? Is she being cast as one of the 3 witches in Macbeth’s play?

  8. Tina February 22, 2012 at 05:03 #

    Don’t understand why she is style icon, and also don’t understand many of Stella McCartney’s designs. Why has this world come to.

    The gown looked like a garbage bag on Alexa – awful. Many don’t understand Alexa’s appeal, but what’s so hard to comprehend? She has a model’s body – that’s major, plus she’s pulled off some unique looks. Fashion is about make-believe, albeit vain and unrealistic. It’s just that she belongs to the street fashion, not a gown or McCartney and Celine, which are meant for “gentlewomen.”

    FC Did you see what Shailene Woodley wore to Stella’s presentation? Hideous

    • Fashion Critic February 22, 2012 at 04:19 #

      No…I will check back

  11. Sarah February 22, 2012 at 02:08 #

    I swear – first thought: “Bride of Chucky!”

    Then second thought was – Mrs. Chucky’s hair is better styled.

    Just don’t get the fuss. Honestly.

  12. Sophie February 21, 2012 at 23:36 #

    PLEASE CAN SOMEONE explain to me why she is considered a fashion icon…. I just don’t understand.

    • StylistLiz February 22, 2012 at 01:43 #

      Seriously, overrated. I’m not sure why she is considered an fashion icon. Didn’t she start as a disc jockey?

    • Sue Jin February 23, 2012 at 06:51 #

      please explain it to me too. i don’t get her at all… overrated to the max

  13. Parvati February 21, 2012 at 23:31 #

    “Accessories and combs don’t bite, Alexa.”

    So true! It seems she really likes to appear at events with her hair like that, but the thing is just ridiculous… I’ve read so many times about how much of a style icon she is considered and I keep wondering how is that happening???

  14. Dhppy February 21, 2012 at 23:24 #

    I think she’s channeling Joan d’Arc here. Years from now, when she’s beatified as some kind of fashion martyr, won’t there be egg on our faces?

  15. anna February 21, 2012 at 23:15 #

    she looks like a homeless girl who found a piece of black silk and started to walking around.
    this looks is terrible(but i must say it’s not only alexa’s fault…i can’t imagine nobody looking good with this piece of siilk )

  16. molly February 21, 2012 at 22:39 #

    Im begging you FC, give us a worst of the week poll! Alexa would take the cake and its only Tuesday.

    • Fashion Critic February 21, 2012 at 23:06 #

      lol so true

  17. REGINA February 21, 2012 at 21:18 #

    The worst is that how she’s being forced down or throats as a fashion icon! LOLLERCOASTER!

  18. Lou February 21, 2012 at 19:18 #


  19. heather February 21, 2012 at 19:05 #

    I burst out laughing when I saw this photo!!

  20. Stephanie February 21, 2012 at 17:58 #

    We get it~you don’t care, you aren’t trying too hard… Now can you brush your hair??

  21. Giuseppi Giraffe February 21, 2012 at 17:19 #


  22. Ariel February 21, 2012 at 16:39 #

    She was at Burberry’s show looking like her norm along with Sonam Kapoor, who looked absolutely beautiful!

  23. hanna February 21, 2012 at 16:27 #

    What a dramma!!!!

  24. bm February 21, 2012 at 15:49 #

    If I met her on the street and I don’t know who Alexa Chung is, then i will guess that she’s a homeless girl.

  25. Alina February 21, 2012 at 15:47 #

    The miracle lasted only for one red carpet outing.

  26. Errun February 21, 2012 at 15:12 #

    Seriously! I can not believe that some one can make such an ugly gown..what was Ms Mc cartney thinking..and Alexa what were you?..

  27. Gaber February 21, 2012 at 15:06 #

    While I do admit that I have a soft spot for Alexa, I actually like the idea behind this. The dress seems to be a bit poorly executed, but other than that – I am intrigued.

  28. Dee February 21, 2012 at 15:02 #

    She looks like she’s doing the walk of shame wrapped in a bed sheet.

    • k February 22, 2012 at 20:30 #

      Freshly F-ed was what I was thinking too. Oh, boy, she’s terrible!

  29. firien February 21, 2012 at 14:57 #

    Seriously, what’s the fashion in this.

  30. Alice February 21, 2012 at 14:54 #

    She looks like Alex Forrest from Fatal Attraction, and when I last checked looking like a woman who boiled a rabbit in order to get back at the man who broke her heart is not chic at all.

  31. J February 21, 2012 at 14:14 #

    Why is this woman considered a fashionista??? IDGI She always looks sloppy.

  32. Carolina Roq February 21, 2012 at 14:12 #

    she looks homeless!

  33. Anna February 21, 2012 at 13:55 #

    Seriously? Not even a comb?

    I usually keep quiet about weight, but her arms look like they could break.

  34. dee February 21, 2012 at 13:48 #

    I agree with everyone. She is no style icon.

  35. Luci February 21, 2012 at 13:40 #

    not even angelina jolie could pull this off

  36. Ade February 21, 2012 at 13:38 #

    You know you are a mess when your actual hair looks like an unkempt synthetic wig. I don’t know how one can leave home looking like hell just burped you out.

    • Rebecca Z February 21, 2012 at 15:34 #


  37. Linda February 21, 2012 at 12:27 #

    Really terrible. I can’t believe she’s recognized for style. It looks like she hopped out of bed and threw that dress on wearing last night’s make up. Truly mystifying.

  38. Emi February 21, 2012 at 12:24 #

    I would say that she does nothing to a potentially beautiful gown. Ugly hair as usual.

  39. M. February 21, 2012 at 12:17 #

    Effortless style has a new meaning. Thanks Alexa.

    PS Consider buying a comb. Please.

  40. Lee February 21, 2012 at 12:16 #

    .. what’s up with the crazy eyes?

    • becca February 21, 2012 at 14:20 #

      seriously! she scares me

    • Hermoine February 21, 2012 at 17:49 #

      That’s funny because my first thought was she looks bat **it crazy!! Thenimlooked at her black flour sack and cat styled hair and understood!

  41. bee7 February 21, 2012 at 12:16 #

    looks like she wrapped herself with a bedsheet.

  42. stephanie fiman February 21, 2012 at 12:16 #

    she look so messy and plain.

  43. Nat February 21, 2012 at 12:12 #

    Honestly, I don’t think one can even call this a “gown”.
    It’s just a very expensive piece of fabric draped around her.

  44. cedric February 21, 2012 at 12:11 #

    why people love her seriously, i dnt see where her style is improvement, nothin special, just boring or man-style
    can someone explain me pleasse ,

    • AW February 21, 2012 at 14:12 #


      Good grief!

      • Snowlion February 23, 2012 at 11:26 #

        +2. I really do not understand.

  45. SoloJack February 21, 2012 at 12:11 #

    She looks like she’s just got out of the shower (wrapped in the shower courtain)

    • Vicky February 21, 2012 at 15:37 #


      • EmmaWoodhouse February 22, 2012 at 19:19 #

        +1! If I see this hairstyle one more time…(ominous silence)

    • Clover February 23, 2012 at 03:04 #

      Gosh I came here to say the exact same shower curtain comment! It’s so true.
