Alexa Chung In Chanel – Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week

I must say that I found myself being quite charmed by Alexa Chung as she arrived at the Chanel Spring 2011 Couture presentation today in Paris, France.

She channeled Parisian chic wearing a Chanel Fall 2010 Couture tuxedo-inspired dress.

I adore this look without the cropped jacket. It really allows me to appreciate this look even more.

Some of you might think she looks like she’s about to wait tables, but I think she looks very elegant, yet she still managed to retain her cheeky charm.

Prada suede platform sandals and a black clutch completed her look.

    Alexa always dresses like a grandmother. I don’t get why she is considered a fashionista.

    I don’t like the dress on the model, but I really really dislike it on Alexa. Yes, she looks like she’s about to wait tables and the look is very unflattering in the chest area.

    Its incredible how ONE woman can destroy couture without even trying. Designers should BAN her from wearing their stuff. She looks lifeless, boring and stiff…and all those elements reflect on the beautiful clothing she gets…for free, according to her…

    Go away Alexa, you designer garment killer!

    i don’t know if it’s just her but this looks pretty cheap for couture..

    I adore it, so cute and chic all in one! Andy she has died her Ombre hair and it looks nice and sleek. she looks lovely. (I don;t mind the look around the bust either)

    This is the ugliest Chanel creation I have ever seen. She makes high fashion look so mediocre.

    Lovely. This shows L’Wren Scott how to make her dowdy amish secretary clothes work with personality. She looks adorable, elegant yet quirky, pure Alexa. Should be up for BDOTW.

    A bit too costumey for me.

    She looks nice. But woman needs to invest in a bra!

    • Taise January 31, 2011 at 12:33 #

      I agree!

    Her breasts look like they are trying to escape in two different directions. Prefer with Jacket.

  11. Shaina January 26, 2011 at 05:08 #

    She looks amazing. It looks 10x better on her than the model.

  12. amber January 26, 2011 at 03:23 #

    like it a lot better with the jacket.

    • Jones19 January 26, 2011 at 13:27 #

      Ditto, would have preferred this with the jacket on.

    I don’t think she looks like a waiter, but it makes her chest look completely awful! Immediately it was all I could look at – they look like they are trying to break free. Not flattering at all. Would have been much better if the vest covered her chest and fit like it did on Freja.

    I like it but she kinda looks like a bartender

  15. KateS January 26, 2011 at 01:10 #

    It’s kind of a naughty french maid’s outfit crossed with a waiter’s – I don’t like. And the fit on the bust is horrible.

  16. Ben January 26, 2011 at 00:38 #

    I love it! It is the first Alexa look I have ever liked… Ever

  17. Hisadora January 26, 2011 at 00:33 #

    LOVE it. Finally she put on her mind that she must wear at least heels, not flats, with a Chanel dress. She looks extremely chic and cute 🙂

  18. Anita January 25, 2011 at 23:43 #

    I love it too; mostly because this is one of the few times Alexa doesnt look half dead.

    • Jinni January 27, 2011 at 14:13 #

      Totally agree! her usual looks are half dead, dragged thru the festival field looks…Wow i’m quite surprised here, even if her breast wants to run away from the outfit… lol!

    Not a fan of Alexa Chung’s style. I like the dress better on the model, but I like Alexa’s shoes with it.
    She does look like she’s waiting tables which was my first thought before I read your critique. She should have worn a jacket.
    Even though I don’t like her hair, it’s a vast improvement.

    this dress without the jacket makes her boobs looks really weird

    • Linda January 26, 2011 at 01:54 #

      Yeah, too much attention is drawn to her breasts without the jacket…maybe if she had a better support bra on it would be better.

      • Linda January 26, 2011 at 01:55 #

        On second glance, maybe if she put a bra on, period!

        • Vidhya January 26, 2011 at 11:10 #

          lol… the jacket wud have been a godsend for the poor girl.. and she goes ahead and decided nt to wear it

    • Ev January 26, 2011 at 04:15 #

      Absolutely, like they’re about to burst out, stretching the silky material. So weird.

      • bas January 26, 2011 at 12:12 #

        i agree.. it doesn’t suit her bust

        • Lils January 26, 2011 at 14:08 #

          yep, she should have worn the jacket

    • Fee January 26, 2011 at 16:37 #

      Yep, sadly it was the first thing I noticed – could be cute but what is going on around her bust totally ruins it
