...It's Still an Obsession

I feel like Alexa Chung is one of those people whom other people love to hate (or could it be that I've just been spending too much time on the Fashion Spot forums??) Personally I find something very appealing about her, dare I say relatable even? Maybe it's that I admire her brand of particularly British insouciance? Or that I hear she lives above my favorite grossly over-priced junk shop?

In any case, I'm prepared to make a stand as an Alexa fan--if for no other reason than our shared affections for Lou Doillon and Chloë Sevigny and general mistrust of 80's revivalism.

I am firm believer that most people's hatered comes from jealously, I mean how could you express negativity towards someone who obviously has it so put together, she's a pretty impressive person really, I too am a fan!

Perfect bedroom.

I also think she is really pretty and dresses well. She comes out a bit annoying in interviews sometimes, but after editing, anyone can appear annoying anyway!

i havent seen some of those pictures before! :D
i just really admire the way that a lot of her outfits are things that everyday people can throw together unlike other celebrities where its all designer! she always looks good in everything :) xo

will always adore her. i love these shots to especially the bed one. somehow i feel a canadian flag bedspread would be so cheesy and yet that brit flag looks so cool.

I love her, there is just something very natural about her. she is a genuine beauty not one caked in make up and her fashion sense feels like she's dug into her Grandma's closet not gone all haute couture. I will admit I dunno how I feel about the fact that she's just some lame VJ but oh well

i was so excited to see these pics, and then a bit perplexed as to why anyone would dog someone so adorable. she makes me want to bob my hair.

how do i join fashion spot? i applied (as though i took an SAT or something) and i think they're ignoring me...

I don't know much about Alexa, but she looks impeccable in every picture I have ever seen. Those sequins!

Brittany said...

She has such a good dress sense!

I think she's awesome, but I've never bothered to watch an interview. And if it means that I won't like her, then I really don't want to.

sarah: I have no clue how to actually join the Fashion Spot, I always sort of figured I wasn't ~kewl~ enough so I just lurk the forums for pictures!

Hm, I personally don't see what the big deal is, when it comes to hating her so much. I rather like her style! That girl pulls off a lot of shit, and look at that face! And the hair! I just don't get why people would hate that.
