Alexa on LFW dressing etiquette

15 September 2008


Spotted! Alexa Chung changing her outfit midway through day one of London Fashion Week. Alexa turned up at Charles Anastase (and then Topshop) wearing one of his blazers and geeky glasses. Ten minutes after Topshop wrapped up we spotted her jumping into her car in a whole new outfit. Confused about where she'd changed - Pret? Maccie D's?! - we caught up with her backstage at PPQ to pick her brains on LFW style. ‘I felt like I had to change because I was wearing Charles to his show and I didn't think it was right to wear him at Ossie Clarke too,' she told us. ‘I thought that was the done thing but seeing as no one else changed clearly that's not the etiquette. So I'll be wearing my favourite Luella dress all day tomorrow after the show!' Alexa, who is running around Fashion Week filming for her new show Frock Me, also told us what fashion essential she always keeps in her handbag. ‘I always have a pair of over the knee socks because I'm skinny so I get cold really easily,' she revealed. ‘People take the piss out of me for always wearing them though.' And the show she's most looking forward to seeing this week? ‘Vivienne Westwood. I've never seen her show before and I don't own any of her clothes - I'm a Westwood Virgin.' Not for long, Alexa. But what on earth will you wear? We'll be watching. Meanwhile, which outfit do you prefer?
