Alexa Chung wins British Style Award for second year running

Alexa Chung wins British Fashion Award

At last night’s UK Fashion Awards, Alexa Chung won the British Fashion Award for the second year in a row. This is the only title which is the result of a public vote, so while the appeal of Alexa has always been a bit of a mystery to us, if we’re totally honest, we are presumably in the minority with that one, and Alexa is a true icon of British style. We’ll allow you to be the judge of that. For ourselves, we will simply say that she looks very nice here (wearing a Christopher Kane dress and Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ heels) and leave it at that.

What do you think of Alexa’s style? A deserving winner of the British Style Award?

    I never understood why she’s considered a fashionista. Her hair’s always a mess and she dresses like a grandmother 90% of the time. lol

    I couldn’t take my eyes off the shoes, either. Way too large.

    I just don’t understand her hairstyle. It’s so uneven, it looks like she got drunk enough to think “Fringes are great, I want one now!” and just went for it with the kitchen scissors.

    Over here in North America they keep trying to make this girl “happen”, but it ain’t working. I personally don’t get the hype about her outfits. Also I agree that her hair is very messy all the time.

    I love that she doesn’t wear tons of makeup, but her hair just looks lazy, and I don’t think I’ve seen her in one piece of clothing that is flattering. She gets the trendy award, I’ll give her that, but not style. Style for me is something that is always beautiful. I have a feeling what Miss Chung wears has never/is not/will never be beautiful.

      ooh, you might have hit the nail on the head there! She’s trendy but not necessarily stylish, or deserving of a style award. She always seem to be upsides of what’s in style, and it seems like she’s not afraid to wear unusual things, but still… just no. She does not look good.

    She is way too boring and too grandmotherlike to win this award.

    I meant, her style is boring and grandmotherlike, I never met Alexa Chung.

    I think she usually looks dowdy and boring. I appreciate that she’s showing that you don’t have to wear skyscraper heels and be made up to within an inch of your life to be considered fashionable, but I don’t think she looks good at all most of the time.

    She’s been made a style icon but not for me.
    The shoes are great. The size is sooo wrong!

    I think Alexa’s got some style but sometimes she dresses either like a granny or like a child. I’m not a big fan of her

    how could she walk in those shoes? they look way too wide for her.her thigh in one of these picture actually made me dizzy how sickly thin it looks.i know that some people are naturally skinny but this is just too much for me.
