But that is neither here nor there. The point is, Alexa Chung is revered for being a fashion icon, because she is tall and thin and attractive in an unassuming way and has that boring, hipstery, lank look so popular right now- you know, a sack tucked into a sack, a navy blazer, some long/tangled necklaces, flats or big chunky shoes, a brown leather bag, straggly hair, neutrals aplenty, a twist of the 90's.
Here she is in some assorted looks. Could that 80's-or-Built-By-Wendy dress on the bottom be any more ill-fitting?
Fascinating! Also, according to some research I did, she dates or dated this guy who looks like he is seven from the Arctic Monkeys. God, it's so depressing what passes for hipness these days!
PS: Here's a photo of Peaches Geldof (experiencing some Agyness Deyn fallout) and Alexa:
I think I had the denim dress Ms. Chung is wearing in sixth grade. I used to wear it with a pair of silver earrings shaped like teddy bears. Anyway, LANK! Peaches, despite- or perhaps because of- looking like a sci-fi vixen from 1989, wins this round!
