in my opinion it is the boyfriend. i mean, come on, she was never on the cover of any of these magazines, nobody really cared about her much, before alex. and at the beginning of ever article or on the cover it always begins with something like "Alexa Chung is unstoppable with Alex Turner the Arctic Monkey at her side. . ." etc etc. And Alexa is totally loving all the attention, milking it for what it's worth.

Another thing, she said she's interested in an anti-fur documentary yet you always see her in leather purses or shoes

true, she may well have become more famous because of her boyfriend, but she was well on the way to becoming a popular tv presenter before that. And either way, this doesn't take away from the fact that she does have great style!
And, to be honest, what career-minded person wouldnt make the most of the attention she is getting at the moment, be it due to her boyfriend or not!?

I knew who she was long before any mention of her dating Alex Turner. He has nothing to do with why I pay any attention to her. I like how she dresses whether it's completely original or not, and most people wouldn't be able to be completely original without really going out of their way, which I think would be a waste of time. Shouldn't this be her topic and not her boyfriend's?

^ tell that to the british press. and her as well, if she wants people to stop mentioning him she should stop gabbing on about him in interviews. could be the fact that she has nothing better going on. . . just stating my opinion.

Well he is her boyfriend, and it's her choice whether she wants to mention him. But like I said, this is supposed to be her topic. The press will make a big deal about her being his girlfriend whether she talks about him or not.

the reason she's garnered more attention is because of alex turner - anyone who denies that is either really naive or downright stupid, imo.

aside from that, she's gorgeous and seems to have a decent sense of style. i think especially in the last 6 months or so her style has become a bit more distinctive from the usual 'hipster/grungy/peach geldof-like' style.

her canvas bags paired with cocktail dresses for example. her make-up (i for one lover how she makes up her eyes..) - it's a bit of different twist and her style doesn't seem as contrived so it's natural she's going to be looked at for that as well.

never really liked her too much on popworld, tbh...and i don't think she's that great of a presenter...but even though her style is not entirely original i can totally see why it's of interest. plus, she doesn't seem to take herself too seriously - she does have a sense of humour about herself and her 'it-girl' status.

Alexa and actress Natalia Tena look so much alike.

1) If you look at her pictures you will see her in a lot of playful dresses! Above all she loves floral dresses. She just pulls them over and wears some necklaces and pretty shoes. A very simple but lovely style to wear.


2) She also has a lot of different black dresses. To wear them at day she combines them with necklaces, Tees and chemises.


3) For special occesions, she likes her dresses silky and with special details. So that it catches all the attention.

4) Alexa also loves chequered dresses and shirts for a more laid-back style.



5) But she also has a huge collection of stripes shirt, which give her a french touch. As you can see again she loves her necklaces.


6) For casual occasions Alexa just pulls out a pair of skinny jeans, some vintage shirt and her leather jacket.

- skinny skinny jeans
- big vintage shirts
- striped and chequered shirts
- black leather ankleboots
- vintage bags
- high waisted skirts
- necklaces, necklaces, necklaces
