THE INSIDER: ALEXA CHUNG

The London invasion continues with a TV star hopping across the pond

You may have spotted Alexa Chung in NYLON’s March issue, but there’s more to the 24-year-old TV star then just her great outfits. After working as a London VJ for the past three years, she’s now traveling the world in search of good television, and you know what that means – you’ll see her in America super soon.

Here’s the lowdown on all things Alexa:

She grew up in the middle of nowhere.
I was born in the country, just outside London in Hampshire. It’s like lots of green fields… I really liked it up until the age of fourteen because all I did was ride horses. But then when I realized the world existed beyond horses, I was disappointed.

She’ll get your MySpace messages.
I guess VJs in America are a big deal, but in London… yeah, I’m on TV. So what? I have no “people,” I just have the Internet! I have to find everything out myself!

She’s annoyed by budding hipsters, too.
I had to DJ the other night at a 16-year-old’s birthday, so I spun a lot of Dr. Dre and stupid things that teenage girls like, like really bad new metal like Linkin Park… but this girl was so spoiled, she had CSS and the Klaxons playing live at her birthday! When I was sixteen, I had a tape player and like, musical chairs.

She knows what’s on your iTouch.
Black Lips, The Charelles (The Shirelles?!), XTC… those are what I like to listen to.

She thinks American girls have great style.
Seeing creative people all over the world is really nice because New York, Los Angeles, I mean, you guys inspire what girls in London wear, and then it becomes a cycle with us and you the teenagers in Paris… all the trends happen in unison now. It’s strange.

You may not know who she is, but you will…
I’m doing a TV show about fashion soon, it’s going to be like a fashion news program but for young people, more fun than what’s been done before. So I’m going all over the world to interview different designers, and I’ve already got an interview with Karl Lagerfeld lined up. They played the Ronettes on the Chanel runway last year, so I trust him!

I actually couldn't stop thinking about this bit of the interview. I think that's a really rude way to talk about somebody who employed you. Calling them spoiled, when she was younger she had a pony!

I really cant see alexa being too big outside of the UK, as her humour is just so Birtish, I cant see too many americans 'getting' it!
