Alexa Chung In Erdem – The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Alexa Chung In Erdem - The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Alexa Chung attended the annual Serpentine Gallery Summer Party held at The Serpentine Gallery on Tuesday (July 1) in London, England.

The presenter has been on a run which has been quite impressive; however, I have some quibbles with regards to her Erdem Fall 2014 strapless dress on this occasion.

While not everyone was wearing summery dresses to this event, this is as Fall as you can get, with the velvet material and heavy woven detailing.

Some lively accessories à la Donna Air would’ve perked up the look, but for me this is not really event appropriate, plus I had hoped to see this on Rooney Mara.

Flat-footed black shoes and a red lip colour completed her look.

    Kinda pretty, but also pretty boring.

    While velvet in summer is never a good idea, I can live with the dress, at least it’s sleeveless and looks nice, simple and elegant on her, but I absolutely cannot look past those shoes – her feet look so awfully flat and long in them and the straps are too thick around her ankles.

    The dress is nice for winter + she let it down with the hairstyle and shoes.

    While I too think the look is not event appropriate at all because of the color and the material, the dress isn’t that bad. Still simple and elegant.
    Maybe if she went with the red lipstick and chose some light red accescoires, it would’ve been better… Especially in the shoe section because those flats look much too heavy with those thick straps.

    Her looks can never get past nice or ol in my book and this one is no exception.

    I think she wants to look efortless but she is just pure mess most of the times and what hurts is that se can do so much better, but oh well.

    Her shoes make her feet look like a size 20. While the dress is fine, I don’t think it’s right for the season.

    She ruins everything she wears.

    What will Alexa Chung do when she is 50? Her life is an endless array of parties. How empty.

      +1 I really don’t understand this woman’s appeal. There is nothing glamorous or fashion forward about her. She wears labels…that is all

    As someone who finds heels gorgeous, yet refuses to wear them, I like to see women like Chung and Olivia Palermo who regularly wear flats to evening events. This particular pair may be disappointing, but she has done better. She may never be at the flat heeled fashion level of Inès de La Fressange, but few can be.

    Way too heavy for the season.

    Yet another Alexa look- underdone, a little sloppy.
