Alexa Chung In Vintage Balenciaga – InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Alexa Chung - InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Alexa Chung attended the 2014 InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globe Awards post-party on Sunday (January 12) in Beverly Hills, California.

I was surprised to see her in town for the Globes, but not surprised to be disappointed by her vintage Balenciaga dress which was from Decades.

The dress isn’t bad per se but it’s all wrong for Alexa, making her look older and a damn sight frumpier as a result.

It’s like that pre-worn wedding dress a women receives from her mother or a grandmother once she’s announced her engagement, to be told ‘you just need to take it in and it will be perfect’.

The updo doesn’t help the matronly vibe, but she did try to perk up the look with red lippie and a Dolce & Gabbana ‘Agata’ bag.

      +1 my thoughts exactly!

    There is Miranda Kerr on the one spectrum and Alexa Chung on the other. But both looks are bad.
    Still – I would go with Miranda – this is just terrible.

    This is just awful.

    Bad. Really, really bad.

    grannyish. ugh!

    It looks like she slept in that dress.

    Why is she still considered a fashionita? I have always hated her style, and this occasion makes no difference.

      Agreed.

    • sara January 13, 2014 at 17:50 #

      Agreed, I’ve never understood the fuss around her.

    I’m already 20odd looks further down catching up with the blog after a weekend away and I still don’t know what to say about this mess. I’m absoltely baffled. It’s not just this horrid, unflattering dress. The hair, the ghastly/ghostly make up, the shoes, what a mess!

    this could have been a one word post: “no”.

    FC, my thought exactly. I thought about those films in which the main female protagonist is getting married and the mother wants her to wear her ugly dated wedding dress…
    The length is awful, and it should be illegal for these events!
    I don’t even like the hairstyle, but I admit her face is flawless.

    just because it’s balenciaga doesn’t mean she is going to get a pass for this one

    This woman is consistently poorly dressed. I don’t care what a whole country says or what magazines say, she is a terrible fashionista. I don’t even know why she’s featured on this site.

    I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

  14. AG January 14, 2014 at 00:35 #

    Her face looks flawless but the outfit is dreadful! So ill fitting and poorly accessorised. Just lazy.

    Does anyone else see an awkward Michelle Dockery sister?

    Sometimes I wonder how wonderful Alexa Chung actually finds herself, how enamored she must be with her effortless and generous beauty, to wear this with THIS HAIR and just be overwhelmed with the need to hug herself, for being so incredible adorable. EVERY SINGLE TIME it feels like this. It’s “I present to you, me, just me.”, personified.

    • Serenity January 14, 2014 at 05:29 #

      I laughed out loud, literally, so hard at this. Funniest thing I heard/read all day!!!

      • cherrysoftness January 15, 2014 at 01:28 #

        I wish that didn’t sound so catty – for me it’s more like, it could be a fact. Maybe she really hugs herself, a launch-me-to-the-world kind of hug.

    Call me crazy, but I actually like it. The bag not so much, but I think there is something interesting and I love the hair and make up with it.

  18. Henrietta F January 14, 2014 at 15:22 #

    I think she looks quite gorgeous. I like the dress, the hair and the make up. It’s just a matter of taste.

  19. Camille January 14, 2014 at 16:44 #

    I’ll start with the good: hair and makeup were very pretty. For a change she looks groomed and like she made some effort.

    The bad: ugh, this dress is awful. Looks like it came out of a dirty clothes hamper or a Goodwill bin. Just sad.

    And those shoes!! My grandmother wears shoes like that, buys them from Charleston, SC. Little shop there makes shoes for old ladies that are comfortable. Maybe she was in a granny mood. Who knows, I’m so over this person and her pretense at being fashionable.
