I think they (or at least I when agreeing with them) don't see her as being styled like the typical Hollywood starlet. Her hair isn't ever perfectly blow out, she doesn't worry about her pale skin, I've never seen her in a pair of Louboutins or an Alexander Wang t-shirt... etc, etc.

As DiamondSea stated, she definitely has an interest in style -- and that fact may ocassionally lead to her being seen with a Chanel bag or something that would fit in the broad generalization of what fits in the Hollywood robots "uniform", but to me she has a pretty classic & true style that breaks her out of that cookie-cutter mold.

As far as her being the "new thing", that's news to me? And probably humorous to those of us (most of us in here) who having been posting in her thread and admiring her style since the start of her thread in 2006.

Your very welcome RandomGlitter, and I hope you hang around the thread... maybe she will change your mind! Either way, it's nice to hear all opinions when stated with thought & with openness to discussion, so thank you

In my opinion, the style of these Hollywood types reflects vanity before creativity---they all end up looking the same. Alexa is just the opposite. She looks to me like someone with interesting thoughts. That's my take on it, at least.

Hmmmm... I do understand what you mean although to me, she pretty much looks like your typical scenester. I've seen a tonne of girls around my city that look that way, along with various celebs.

Arden is so sweet. I imagine that her and Alexa would get along fairly well.

The photos that appeared in OK Magazine a while ago were originally taken for China's Modern Weekly (May '09). We've seen most of the pictures, but here's the whole feature:

From the Harper's Bazaar article:

Quote:
For fall, she's thinking of picking up jeans at Balenciaga, Isabel Marant's cheetah coat and skinny pants ("That whole look is pretty rad"), and must-haves from Alexander Wang and London-based label Antipodium.
I didn't think she wore real fur?
