Alexa Chung In Christian Dior – Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Alexa Chung In Christian Dior - Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Alexa Chung attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards held at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 3) in London, England, where she picked up the Entrepreneur of the Year award.

The other surprising thing is that the TV presenter didn’t wear Chanel, instead opting for a Christian Dior Resort 2015 fit-and-flare black frock with a sheer embroidered bodice – which shatters my theory that if you are considered a Chanel ambassador (as she is) you can’t wear Dior.

My surprise is three-fold as I don’t find myself disliking the look.

Something has shifted when it comes to Alexa’s style. Perhaps she’s finally attempting to live up to her fashion icon status, as the hair looks good, I love the dress, the clunky mannish shoes have given way to dainty sandals, and she’s even sporting a tan.

Did hell freeze over, because I really love this from head to toe.

Alexa Chung In Nina Ricci – 2014 Met Gala

Alexa Chung In Nina Ricci - 2014 Met Gala

Alexa Chung attended the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Surprisingly, she didn’t wear her go-to designers Christopher Kane or Erdem, selecting a Nina Ricci piece instead.

I was also surprised to see her wearing a gown because, as you know, she loves to keep it short and sweet.

The blue-grey silk-radzimir strapless gown accented with bow detailing down the front was also a rare homerun for Alexa.

While the silver embellished clutch was the perfect accessory, I can’t get on board with the black pumps with gold-studded toecaps.

I’m picturing silver sandals with this gorgeous look in my mind’s eye.

Alexa Chung In Calvin Klein – FIT’s The Future Of Fashion Runway Show

Alexa Chung In Calvin Klein - FIT's The Future Of Fashion Runway Show

Alexa Chung attended FIT’s The Future Of Fashion runway show held at The Fashion Institute of Technology on Thursday (May 1) in New York City.

The British TV host wore a simple ecru Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2014 tunic dress, which many of us would wear as a sweater.

Micro-mini doesn’t quite cover it, but Alexa has the long legs to pull it off.

Styled with a grey fedora, black sandals and her can’t-leave-home-without Dolce & Gabbana ‘Agata’ top-handle bag, she completed her look with neutral makeup.

Who Wore Miu Miu Better…Lea Seydoux or Alexa Chung?

Who Wore Miu Miu Better Lea Seydoux or Alexa Chung

Lea Seydoux wore a Miu Miu Spring 2014 printed dress while attending the nominations photocall for the EE Rising Star award back in January.

You guys loved this look, which she styled with mint-green Miu Miu pumps, that many of you have this on your BDOTY list.

Alexa Chung wore the same dress last month to the Miu Miu Women’s Tales 7th Edition screening of short film ‘Spark & Light,’ styling the look with a salmon-coloured bag and black booties.

Styling wise, Lea’s is far superior and more complementary, so the French beauty wins for me.

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?
