Alexa Chung is the style icon who's spawned a thousand imitators. Since landing the gig of presenting T4's Popworld back in 2006 there's barely been a week when the fashion queen hasn't topped a best-dressed list (or three). In the latest issue of Grazia, our Big Fashion Issue in fact, we speak to Alexa about turning 30, work insecurities and how strange it is to see someone steal her style. Pick up your issue now to read the interview by Francesca Babb in full, but in the meantime, you can browse all our Alexa Chung Week content on Grazia Daily, from a fashion timeline and friendship map to her hairvolution and style rules...
Want Alexa’s hair? We do. We also want her beauty look, entire wardrobe, uber-long legs and super-chic lifestyle. Unfortunately this is, in reality, not going to happen, even if we do close our eyes and make a wish. But fear not, fellow Graziettes, as Alexa’s hair might just be something that is (vaguely) within your reach. Whilst we weren’t all blessed with Alexa’s gorgeous almond-shaped eyes, we can certainly learn a few beauty lessons from the starlet’s incredible repertoire of hairstyles. Over the years, Miss Chung has always managed to look perfectly coiffed whilst still retaining that oh-so chic, laid-back look. What’s more, her trademark ‘undone’ do has become one of the most envied styles the nation over- we’ve been style-stalking Alexa for what seems like an age!

The beauty of Alexa’s hair is that it’s not too short and not too long- it’s a perfectly chic length which always manages to sit just right, whether she’s rocking a set of cool-girl bangs or a roughed-up head of beachy curls. On the subject of Miss Chung’s bangs, we frankly have yet to see a fringe we’re more obsessed with. There’s just something about her grown-out fringe which is just uber-sexy and carries that effortless vibe, too.
There’s no denying that Alexa truly is one heck of a style chameleon and has also been known to work the Ombré look to total perfection as well as shaggy layers and razored ends- looks that are notoriously tricky to pull off. Full beauty marks to Alexa? We think so. Although she once famously said that her two biggest hair icons are Bryan Jones and Mick Jagger (yes, seriously), we’re still swooning over Alexa’s hair, and will be for many years to come.
