Alexa Chung In Valentino – International Woolmark Prize

Alexa Chung In Valentino - International Woolmark Prize

Alongside style legends Frida Giannini and Franca Sozzani, Alexa Chung turned judge during Milan Fashion Week as she and other fashion stars chose the winner of the hotly anticipated 2014 International Woolmark Prize.

Wearing a Valentino Pre-Fall 2014 cape dress cut across her shoulders and printed with intricate butterflies, the look was a refreshing update on Alexa’s usual preppy feminine style and I thought it was great to see her try new prints.

Typically, Alexa’s styling was minimal but it was great to see her hair blow-dried and her signature lick of eyeliner complemented the 60s feel of the dress.

To finish, Alexa chose a pair of nude strappy suede pumps. While they ensure the cape isn’t over-styled, to me the colour is just wrong. A pair of black and maroon pumps would have been so much more in-keeping and would have added an extra dimension to this look which I think it really needs. Do you agree?

    I love the cut of the dress but I’m not too fond of the print. her make up is perfect but the shoes are not working here.

    Hair, makeup and dress are all gorgeous but the shoes are such a let down!

    I think this is one of her best looks. I like everything here, her hair, makeup, dress and shoes.

    I agree the shoes seriously bring down the look–they are so clunky in comparison to the light dress covered with butterflies–there’s kind of a message in that. Ankles up she looks great.

    Great bold and vibrant little dress and her presentation is lovely. However, I’d like to see her wear longer, more sophisticated lengths.
