Alexa Chung, a British model and TV presenter, is regarded internationally as a style icon. Named the most stylish woman by Vogue in December 2009, Alexa frequently appears on Best Dressed Lists, in fashion magazines, and in the front row at fashion shows. She hosted MTV's "It's On with Alexa Chung" in the US. Known for her love of vintage and retro clothing, Alexa takes inspiration from her mother. She admits that she often borrows clothes from her mother's wardrobe and thinks her mother's style is very classic. Her look is natural and effortless. She always wears clothes suitable to the occasion and doesn't try too hard. When asked about the secret of always being so stylish, Alexa says that she doesn't really follow fashion trends for inspiration. She usually just chooses what looks good on her.

"I don’t intellectualise fashion. I just like things. I don’t really follow trends.” - A. Chung (for Radio Times magazine).

Fashion Icon Status

"Chung is a muse to many fashion designers because of her distinctive personal style. She frequently appears on best dressed lists, is a regular cover girl for Vogue, Elle and Harper's Bazaar and is often seen in the front row at fashion shows.
In 2009, the designer handbag company Mulberry created a much sought-after bag named after and inspired by Chung, called the "Alexa".
In February 2010, Chung collaborated with J.Crew's Madewell on a womenswear line which was unveiled during New York Fashion Week.
Vogue's Anna Wintour has described Chung as "a phenomenon" while the New York Times has declared her "the Kate Moss of the new generation". Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld has described her as "beautiful and clever...a modern girl".
In December 2010, Bryan Ferry, on behalf of the British Fashion Council, presented Chung with the British Style Award which "recognises an individual who embodies the spirit of British fashion and is an international ambassador for the UK as a leading creative hub for fashion" at a ceremony at the Savoy Theatre in London."
