Alexa Chung: ‘I can’t imagine growing old in the US’

Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung may be the toast of TV in the US with her daily live show It’s On With Alexa Chung on MTV, but the stylish star revealed that she has every intention of returning to her Brit roots as soon as the moment is right. Speaking to Grazia at Marc Jacobs’ New York Fashion Week after-party last night, Alexa said she is truly excited to return to her former hometown for London Fashion Week this week. ‘I am looking forward to lots of after-parties, namely the Henry Holland one,’ she told us, while waiting for Lady Gaga to take the sage at Hiro Ballroom in Chelsea. ‘I’m also DJing at Burberry so I’m excited to playing to an English crowd and seeing English people in English fashions.’ And while her Burberry gig is the main reason she is returning to London, Alexa revealed she is looking forward to attending many more shows. ‘I’m looking forward to Luella and Topshop Unique, and I love Charles Anastase,’ she told us. Fittingly, Alexa recently starred in a DKNY campaign, and says that if the opportunity arises, she has a couple of brands she would love to front campaigns for. ‘I would love to be in a campaign for Miu Miu or Chanel because their clothes are really rad, and  I wouldn’t mind doing Oxfam again as an ethical fashion initiative.’ Other guests at the party included Alexander Wang, who told us he was 'humbled' at Grazia crowning him King of New York Fashion Week Parties following his gas station soirée on Saturday night. Instead of mingling with the likes of Rachel Zoe and Janet Jackson in the VIP area, the designer happily chilled with the masses. We didn’t think it was possible to love Alexander Wang any more, but now? Officially obsessed.
