Alexa Chung In Valentino – NME Awards 2012

Alexa Chung rocked a sweet look on the red carpet at the NME Awards 2012, held at the Brixton Academy in London last night.

The British Fashion Council’s ‘Young Style Ambassador’ wore a Valentino Pre-Fall 2012 navy lace dress.

Her dress which features a tiered skirt, black velvet trims and a cute bow on the neckline was teamed with black tights and black suede ankle strap peep-toes.

Alexa often adds a masculine element to her looks, but it was 100% girlie on this occasion.

Even her hair has some body to it.

    I will never get her. She looks crazy-eyed here. I kind of wish someone would shave her hair in the middle of the night.

      ROFL @”I kind of wish someone would shave her hair in the middle of the night.” I lov ur comment.

      Ha! +1

    • Jess2 March 2, 2012 at 01:13 #

        She looks deranged.

    Agree with Anj on the crazy eyes. And — whoa! — her legs. They make the model’s legs look huge in comparison. That’s alarming. I hope it’s partly the weird camera angle. Maybe she should go without the dark tights, they’re TOO slimming.

    • Anj March 1, 2012 at 16:58 #

      I had that same sentiment seeing pictures of her at fashion week shows. I know she’s denied being anorexic but the fact is clearly evident that she is underweight. If it’s not a health issue like a thyroid problem, then she chooses to be that way, and that’s problematic.

      • Nat39 March 1, 2012 at 17:59 #

        Judging by her appearance, thyroid problem has always been my guess (my apologies if I’m wrong). She looks more like someone who suffers from overproduction of thyroid hormone (hence the sickly thinness and the “crazy-eyed” staring gaze) rather than an eating disorder.
        My problem with her is if indeed she has a health issue, and she can’t help but look this way, she needs to find a better/more flattering style for her appearance, opt for chic pant suits, longer skirts ensembles, etc. and keep her hair a bit neater.

    Zuzanna looks beautiful here. Alexa looks, like, actually deranged and mental.

    she cheapens the dress. it looks like its from ASOS

    • Ally March 1, 2012 at 17:43 #

      Agree completely. I was wondering why the dress looks so cheap on her and how that can possibly be Valentino. The ‘messy on purpose but still i somehow look like I spent hours on this’ hair doesn’t help in the slightest.

    • REGINA March 1, 2012 at 22:41 #

      I couldn’t have said it better.

    • Alina March 2, 2012 at 11:50 #

      Ditto.

  5. Emmeline March 1, 2012 at 17:01 #

    I love the dress, but she’s got a major case of crazy eyes in that picture. It’s kind of freaking me out.

  6. Nat39 March 1, 2012 at 17:38 #

    She needs to go for chic and sophisticated, cover up those legs, opt for longer skirts, chic pant suits/ensembles (she totally rocked Stella McCartney grey pant suit at Elle Style Awards) instead of sweet girlie, all these cute short dresses do nothing for her and better be left in the past.

    • dee March 1, 2012 at 21:01 #

      I agree.

  7. Elena March 1, 2012 at 17:55 #

    +1 to everyone’s comments, esp Anj! I don’t get her either.

  8. Jones19 March 1, 2012 at 18:09 #

    I can’t get past the crazy eyes.

  9. jane March 1, 2012 at 18:10 #

    I think it fits her well because she is so slight that the volume is flattering. She has such tiny tiny bones.

  10. Parvati March 1, 2012 at 19:39 #

    Another awful look by Alexa Chung…

    • EmmaWoodhosue March 1, 2012 at 20:38 #

      I know! The dress might have been cute on Elle Fanning or Hailee Steinfeld, but the whole thing is just silly on Alexa. Not to mention the hair and crazy eyes…

  11. Yasmine March 1, 2012 at 20:00 #

    she scares me

    • Moxie March 1, 2012 at 23:02 #

      Me too.

  12. Hisadora March 1, 2012 at 20:10 #

    I try, I really try, but I can’t like her or her looks. She ruined just another pretty dress

  13. Zanjka March 1, 2012 at 20:52 #

    i think alexa should we banned by law… she always cheapens clothes.

  14. molly March 1, 2012 at 22:01 #

    Ok, who let Alexa out of the mental hospital?

  15. Rebecca Z March 1, 2012 at 22:22 #

    I actually think she looks better than usual here–there seems to have been a recent trend of dressing in a more feminine manner.

  16. bee7 March 1, 2012 at 23:28 #

    those crazy eyes……

  17. Raquel March 1, 2012 at 23:42 #

    Has she ever been introcuded to a comb, you know, that thing for making one’s hair look good?

  18. Ramsay March 2, 2012 at 00:45 #

    Sometimes I think she is overrated- It is certain that her looks are always personalised but they’re not always appealing

  19. Jess2 March 2, 2012 at 01:23 #

    I try but I just cannot get past the hair, it drives me crazy!! BUY A HAIRBRUSH! I love the dress and I kind of like it on her but considering it is Valentino, she makes the dress look cheap.

  20. Nathália March 2, 2012 at 01:37 #

    She always look like just ran away from an asylum.

  21. Tina March 2, 2012 at 02:47 #

    Someone needs to buy her a comb.

  22. Yvettie March 2, 2012 at 10:54 #

    What exactly does she do? I just can’t ever stand her. She has a sort of arrogant air to her.

  23. cedric March 2, 2012 at 12:02 #

    a dress like that it’s for someone who got a human legs not chicken legs
    i see this on lily collins

  24. bianca March 7, 2012 at 22:22 #

    I would have loved this dress sans tights.She does have a crazy look in the eyes.And she’s much thinner than the model, scary teeny tiny.After all,she used to be a model, until 2009
