Chanel Spring 2015 Front Row

chanel spring 2015

Karl Lagerfeld presented Chanel’s Spring 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) yesterday morning.

Elisa Sednaoui: The model brought some colour to the front row wearing a Chanel Resort 2015 ensemble with a distinct laidback vibe, which, as expected, she makes look chic and effortless.

Alexa Chung: As you know, Alexa has been impressing me of late with her red carpet choices, and I expected the same from this event; sadly, I was totally underwhelmed. It’s almost like no effort was put into this at all. The whole look is too boxy and not to my liking. She can do better, especially at Chanel.

Poppy Delevingne: The model/socialite also went down the easy breezy route, selecting a Chanel Resort 2015 red and white romper styled with gold sandals and a red Chanel bag. The look is effortless and chic and, most importantly, looks modern and elegant. She’s a great Chanel ambassador.

Alexa Chung In Emilia Wickstead – The Business of Fashion Party

Alexa Chung In Emilia Wickstead -  The Business of Fashion Party

Alexa Chung attended The Business of Fashion party held at The London EDITION on Monday (September 15) in London, England.

Wearing what is fast becoming her favourite brand, she donned a black short-sleeved tea-length turtleneck dress from Emilia Wickstead’s Fall 2014 collection.

It’s an elegant look made more stylish with her favourite Bionda Castana ‘Nicole’ heels and more playful and Chung-like with her pink and red fluffy fan clutch. But I just wish a little more attention had been paid to the hair.

Are you liking Alexa’s more grown up approach to red carpet dressing?

Alexa Chung In Osman – Harper’s Bazaar Celebrates ICONS by Carine Roitfeld Party

Alexa Chung In Osman - Harper's Bazaar Celebrates ICONS by Carine Roitfeld Party

Alexa Chung attended the Harper’s Bazaar Celebrates ICONS by Carine Roitfeld at The Plaza Hotel in New York City on September 5.

For her night on the town, the style icon wore a strapless black circle-print Osman gown with scallop hem- and bust-line detailing from the designer’s Resort 2015 collection.

She paired the dress with a Mark Cross bag and lace-up peep toe pumps.

I think Alexa looks lovely here. I love that she pulled some of her hair back, and a slight cat eye and bright red lip amp up the volume a bit from her typical understated approach to beauty.

Alexa Chung In Burberry Prorsum – Nick Grimshaw’s Birthday Party

Alexa Chung In Burberry Prorsum - Nick Grimshaw's Birthday Party

Alexa Chung was spotted out in London on Friday (August 15) en route to her friend Nick Grimshaw’s birthday party.

Getting plenty of wear out of her new favourite Bionda Castana ‘Nicole’ mid-heels, she flashed her thigh wearing a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 long-sleeved ecru frock with a colourful hand-painted pattern.

This sexier look is the very reason I have found myself warming to Alexa’s new style direction; I’m so glad the tomboy I-don’t-give-a-damn era appears to be over.

A gold chunky chain and a tri-colour Charlotte Simone X Kyle De’Volle fur stole rounded out her birthday-party look.

Alexa Chung In Emilia Wickstead – Alexa Manicure At Debenhams

Alexa Chung In Emilia Wickstead - Alexa Manicure At Debenhams

Following the re-release of her book ‘IT’ in paperback, Alexa Chung attended a photocall to launch her Alexa Manicure collection with Nails Inc. at Debenhams in London on Thursday (August 14).

When you think of Alexa Chung, tomboy, flats and messy hair spring to mind; these days, she’s seeking to changed those views and this look couldn’t be more opposite.

She wore a pretty short-sleeved wrinkle-textured Emilia Wickstead Spring 2014 dress featuring a mock neck and A-line waist, which she styled with Bionda Castana ‘Nicole’ black mid-heels with lace panels and an ankle tie.

On Tuesday I attended Alexa’s talk with Alexandra Shulman of British Vogue, where she wore this exact same outfit from head to toe; how very Kate Middleton of her to recycle so soon.

With no cameras at Tuesday’s event, I am glad she did recycle this look to give it a greater stage from which to be seen.

Miu Miu Resort 2015 Front Row

Miu Miu Resort 2015

Miu Miu presented their Resort 2015 collection at the Palais d’Iena on Saturday (July 5) in Paris, France, to which they invited several celebrity guests.

Alexa Chung: The presenter wore a red satin Prada long-sleeved dress complemented with a black scarf, black Prada ankle-strap heels, and a Prada black ‘Saffiano Lux’ handbag. It’s nice to see Alexa working a different silhouette.

Léa Seydoux: As much as I adore Lea, this Miu Miu cream, silver and gold iridescent brocade zipper tunic and matching trousers make me think she’s wearing pyjamas. Fancy pyjamas, but pyjamas nonetheless. The look was styled with platform Miu Miu heels and a cream Miu Miu coat.

Gemma Arterton: The British actress once again stole my heart wearing this gorgeous Prada pink organza strapless dress with cascading crystal embroideries, which she styled with silver ankle-strap heels. While I love it on Gemma, I do wish Léa had worn this instead.

Alexa Chung In Free People – Out In New York City

Alexa Chung In Free People - Out In New York City

Alexa Chung took a stroll through the East Village in New York City on Saturday (June 21).

Opting for a 90s grunge-chic look, the presenter wore a light and airy heatwave-friendly Free People daisy-print chiffon babydoll cold-shoulder dress with loose bows tied at the arms.

Like any weather-conscious Brit she carried a cardi, just in case, styling the look with ankle-strap ballet pumps.

Without much attention paid to her tresses, she did work a glamorous red lip.
