Alexa Chung for New Look?

28 January 2009


Just as we were wrapping up our fabulous fashion issue at London's Big Sky Studios this morning (it hits stands next week, Grazia Girls!), we came across something of a fashion happening next door. First of all we spotted young up-and-coming photographer Matt Irwin (Dazed & Confused, Russian and Japanese Vogue) wielding his digital camera, and just beyond him the very tanned, endless legs of none other than Alexa Chung. Alexa, who made ours and American Vogue's best-dressed lists for 2008, was dressed rather jollily in a tiny shift dress with a giant camellia on her head and graphic strappy sandals that we wanted to steal right there and then. What were they up to? After bribing our way in with the brand-new issue of Grazia, we discovered these young media darlings are working together on the next campaign for... wait for it... none other than New Look! And very good it looks too. The rumour mill has been busy for a while with gossip that Alexa was designing a range for New Look. We can clarify that this is not the case, but we can't say any more than that. You'll have to wait to read it in Grazia – and watch it here on – on 17 March when the fruits of their labour will be revealed...

Oh, and Alexa won't mind us telling you that, apparently, her new BFF is star of The City (and ex-Hills girl) Whitney Port. They bonded over the fact they both think they've got ‘legs like a ten-year-old'.
