This week’s style inspiration post has to go to the lovely Alexa Chung. Alexa is an English model/tv presenter, and her style is, in my opinion, perfect.
She tends to be rather androgynous, sticking to dark colours and showing a passion for wearing tailored suits, making her style a very distinctive one. Many people find this charming however, with multiple influential people including Karl Lagerfeld and Vogue’s Anna Wintour describing her as “a phenomenon” and “the Kate Moss of the new generation”.
And of course we cant forget the famous handbag brand Mulberry, that designed, and named the much sought after “Alexa” bag in her honour.
She’s gorgeous and I’m obviously completely jealous.
What do you guys think of Alexa’s style?
(its 5 minutes to midnight, this still counts as a friday post right?) haha!
Ok, so I’ve decided that I’m going to start a weekly segment. Every friday I want to upload a post about someone who has inspired the fashion world, and someone who I truly adore- I think it will be fun!
I have an almost unhealthy obsession with Audrey Hepburn. She is perfect and I have been fascinated with her since I was very young. Her style was outstanding, and she was beautiful enough to make girls of any generation jealous.
Hubert de Givenchy was a french aristocrat and fashion designer, who founded the now famous and prestigious House of Givenchy in 1952. The main cause of his huge success as a designer was due to his close relationship with Audrey Hepburn, whom he dressed on multiple occasions for very important parts of her life in stunning outfits that mesmerised the world.
This video definitely captures the essence of my point here. Part of Audrey Hepburn’s huge popularity was down to the way she dressed- people loved her not only for her adorable personality, but for her flawless, quirky appearance.
Audrey Hepburn continues to inspire and change children’s lives today with her fund, raising money and providing support for underprivileged children in Africa. Definitely check it out if you have the chance 🙂
