It’s just so odd. When I look at Alexa Chung I’m not sent into fits of fashion orgasms like every other journalist on the planet. I just don’t get her. She’s pretty, I suppose, but not jaw-droppingly so. She dresses OK, but not better than most of the girls walking down the street. And yet, you’d think she was the second coming of Chloe Sevigny the way the blogs fall all over her. Take this picture of her leaving the Bondi Icebergs Club in Sydney, Australia. I see a girl in an old gray sweater and black jeans. Whatever, right? But Stylelist practically froths at the mouth over this look. According to them: “The always stylish British television host Alexa Chung is sporting an Étoile Isabel Marant sweater, skinny jeans and flat booties, Chung was the definition of casual chic. But the fashion fixture added cat eye shades and a crimson Chanel cross-body bag to give the look a bit of ladylike sophistication.” WHATEVER, GUYS. IT’S A GIRL IN A SWEATER AND JEANS.
