Alexa Chung Named Face of Maje’s Fall 2012 Campaign


Quote:
Maje’s Style Star – French label Maje taps Alexa Chung as the face of its fall 2012 campaign. The above image is a behind the scenes photo shot on set. The autumn advertisements were photographed by Glen Luchford in Paris at the Porte des Lilas Metro station, and are inspired by 1960s cinema

Doesn't surprise me to see her becoming the face of Maje. Looking forward to the campaign, the ones with Vanessa Traine were always beautiful.

Check your references dude. Alexa could be accused of channeling Francoise Hardy and Jane Shrimpton, not Birkin

^ Dude? Tell me you're kidding.....

Even the Daily Mail got this one:


DailyMail

Is that enough reference checking for you?

Not to mention countless other interviews where she never shuts up about Birkin.

Sorry but it takes more than a fringe to be Birkin-esque! Alexa is mod-ish, Jane hippy. Just look at what Jane Birkin is wearing in the photo... Completely different style.


The daily mail... ? Come on!

I've never read an interview where she doesn't cite Jane as a style influence. Her Madewell collection was partly influenced by her. She wears clothes in the same manner as her (effortless cool as opposed to the Mod 'cool with a lot of effort') and ok she reveals less flesh than Birkin but she's not trying to make the same statement...
Her beauty look is so similar to hers too. I'm sorry if you can't see the similarities but to me they're just there. I wish she'd shake it up a bit in her photoshoots, like the Vogue Italia one from a few years ago.

I can't find the exact quotes online but I've seen all this in Harper's and Vogue (the Daily Mail just had the photo I wanted )

why are you guys debating whether she's inspired by Jane Birkin or Jean Shrimpton?
She's mentioned both in interviews, depending on her outfits she channels one or the other, and when you look at pics of Jane and Jean you can clearly see the resemblance with Alexa.

Jean Shrimpton, Jane Birkin, Francoise Hardy, Mick Jagger or Kurt Cobain............ or all of them. Whatever........... she loves AMAZING in that Maje photo above. The shoot sound interesting and I can't wait to see it!

^ Yep, she's cited all the above, in addition to Patti Smith and Diane Keaton (as Annie Hall). Basically most of her style icons are 60s and 70s with a little 90s thrown in for good measure. She loathes the 80s, if I recall correctly.
