Alexa Chung In Bella Freud & Celine – British Designers Collective Launch at Bicester Village

Today I was at Bicester Village for the launch of the British Designers Collective pop-up boutique which runs from March 22 to May 9.

The event was attended by many fashion bloggers and journalists from all over the world, plus the British Fashion Council’s Young Style Ambassador, Alexa Chung.

She was flying the flag for British fashion wearing a Bella Freud ‘je t’aime Jane’ sweater.

This sweater pays homage to Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg’s legendary love affair.

Alexa also wore a Celine Resort 2012 floral-print A-line skirt to show off her slender legs and black Nicholas Kirkwood loafers.

This is a very typically laidback look for Miss Chung.

    I like her laidback look best. This is a great outfit for the weekend!

    Oh thank GOD her hair is combed!!

    It amazes me how much difference her hair makes. Everything else now looks more than presentable.

    I love this skirt and had been eying it for ages but at my age it is sadly too short. She however looks great.

      I’ve been eyeing it too.

      I would prefer a longer version, but not the one with a big pleat down the middle.

        I know I saw that one too. My friend bougght the dress but she is teeny tiny.

    Her hair looks nicely polished here. Stunned!

    i love that outfit, especially the skirt!

  6. Anna March 21, 2012 at 17:20 #

    I actually like it, especially in such combination.

  7. firien March 21, 2012 at 17:33 #

    No, this is not a typical look, because she combed her hair.

      Lol :)

    Love it!

    This is a big improvement. She looks cute.

  10. Aline March 21, 2012 at 20:37 #

    Oh my God, she combed her hair!!!!

    Other than this shocking fact, the rest is pretty bleh. The shoes are actually horrible.

    I think at this point it’s nearly impossible for her to wear a pair of high heels….

  12. Nat39 March 21, 2012 at 21:36 #

    Short skirts/dresses paired with ugly flats aren’t doing her any favours, enough of that already.

    Great look! She does laidback the best. Oh those legs … jealous. Santa, did you hear me?

  14. Kaz March 22, 2012 at 11:36 #

    Am I seriously the first person to note how painfully skinny she looks?

    I can’t focus on the fashion because of it… for heaven’s sake, Alexa, eat something!

  15. Shaina March 22, 2012 at 15:19 #

    This is the best her hair has ever looked! I’m loving this look on her. Very Alexa.

  16. Parvati March 22, 2012 at 23:51 #

    Her hair makes all the difference here!

  17. EmmaWoodhouse March 23, 2012 at 00:37 #

    I don’t like the length of the skirt (it should be longer) but otherwise this is a surprisingly chic look for Alexa. I don’t remember liking anything of hers before, but this is pretty good. Her hair is 100% improved from usual!

  18. lola March 23, 2012 at 02:35 #

    Even though this outfit is so simple,in my opinion its the best she has ever looked. This also happens to be the first time I can say ( with a straight face) that I actually like her hair:)

  19. lola March 23, 2012 at 02:40 #

    one more thing, there is absolutely no reason to be envious of those legs. She needs to eat a meal and pray that it goes straight to her thighs.

  20. Jess2 March 23, 2012 at 03:35 #

    Nearly fell off my chair when I saw her hair, she looks so beautiful with combed hair. I must admit, I cannot stand loafers I just find them ugly. But ankles up I actually really like this look from Alexa… for a change.
