Alexa Chung In Carven - The Big British Invite

Alexa Chung attended The Big British Invite at 78 Mercer Street in New York City yesterday evening in her ongoing efforts to champion all things great about Britain overseas, which is her ambassadorial role.

However, she was feeling very Parisian when it came to her look, wearing a Carven Spring 2013 ensemble.

The look consisted of a tailored cotton-faille jacket with a notched collar and heart-shaped cut-out midsection, which she styled with a matching A-line skirt and a simple white shirt.

It’s not often we see Alexa in something so tailored; her looks often have a looser-fitting schoolgirl vibe to them.

She styled the look with black accessories, including pointy pumps and a pineapple brooch.

This brooch could be something of a good luck charm as she has been spotted wearing it a few times before.
