The New York Times has dubbed her the new ‘It Girl’, British Vogue recognized her fashionable instincts and made her a contributing editor, and popular clothing brand Madewell collaborated with her for an exclusive collection. In the past few years, Alexa Chung has become nothing short of a fashion icon and something of a pop-culture phenom. Starting out as a model, fashion became a huge part of Chung’s life. Her modeling career was followed by numerous television host positions and creative collaborations. Contrary to the trend of fashionistas donning six-inch heels, skin tight attire, and flashy jewelry, Chung is regularly photographed in flats, skirts of modest length, and loose-fitting silhouettes. Her effortless and ‘underdone’ style was quickly noted by the fashion world; she is a fixture on the front rows of prestigious fashion shows, a muse to celebrated designers, and a constant on style blogs. With close to a million followers on her Twitter account, luxury goods being named after her, and blogs dedicated to her personal style, Alexa Chung has a boundless future ahead of her—and she’s not even 30 yet.
