Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Alexa Chung channels the Swinging Sixties in a retro shoot for the October 2011 Harper’s Bazaar UK issue.

The DJ, muse, designer and presenter was photographed in and around David Hockney’s Notting Hill flat by Ellen Von Unwerth.

Her rebooted sixties photoshoot included retro-inspired designs from Chloe, Burberry, Prada and Stella McCartney.

In her interview Chung confesses to being in love with all things Sixties and has even dedicated a wall in her Columbia Road flat as a shire to her multiple sixties muses (such as Astrid Kirchherr, Marianne Faithfull, Jane Birkin, Jean Shrimpton) covered with cut-and-paste effigies, including paparazzi shots of those halcyon days.

The Harper’s Bazaar October British issue is on sale now. Here are some extracts from Alexa’s interview:

On why the Sixties suit her body type: “My ex-boyfriend [photographer David Titlow] showed me Antonioni’s 1966 film Blow-Up in my late teens. I remember seeing Jane Birkin. And I couldn’t believe it. She even made just wearing a pair of tights look sexy. . . I think the Sixties vibe suits my body type, which is skinny legs and a boyish frame.” Read more…

Freida Pinto graces the September 2011 issue of InStyle UK wearing the same Emilio Pucci velvet and lace dress which Jessica Chastain wore to the 2011 Met Gala.

The Indian actress also wears a gorgeous Jonathan Saunders dress in her editorial with an M&S hat, Gemma Lister collar, Fendi belt and Jimmy Choo shoes.

She captured our hearts in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and during Awards Season in 2009 with her impeccable red-carpet looks.

In her interview she talks about her amazing journey since ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, her boyfriend Dev Patel, moving to London and her new movie, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” which hits cinemas on August 12 in the UK.

Here are some extracts from her interview. To read the feature in full, see the September issue of InStyle which is on sale tomorrow.

On why she loves Chanel: “I tell you why I like Chanel so much: when I started off, no one wanted to give me clothes to wear. Absolutely no one. All the labels would say “‘Who is she?” But Chanel believed in me from the very beginning. For the very first red carpet I did at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival, they dressed me up in their very current season collection. It’s a massive brand.” Read more…
