Instagram is Grazia Daily’s guilty-pleasure. Where else would we be able to browse through the intimate snaps of Jessica Alba’s family trip to Tokyo or gawp at photos of Rihanna dying her hair from blonde to black? Exactly. And, if you loved that DIY photoshoot of Jaime King and Lana Del Rey in the singer's vintage Mercedes convertible (courtesy of Jaime’s hubby and a certain iPhone app), you'll love this latest photo of Lana and her new bestie, Alexa Chung. Who knew they were pals, eh?
New pals: Alexa Chung and Lana Del Rey
The style icon tweeted the picture at the weekend along with the simple caption, 'Pals'. Aww. Don't they make a lovely pair with their matching dark locks and pretty pastel nails? Perhaps Alexa snuck backstage at one of Lana's gigs or maybe they're such good friends, LDR invited Chungers round for a cuppa to discuss namesake Mulberry handbags? Either way, we're fascinated by this hipster friendship.
UPDATE: Our Mulberry pals inform us that the photo was taken when the girls met at the Brit brand's Frieze dinner this weekend. Oh, and they're both wearing Mulberry, natch.
BFFs: Zooey Deschanel and Alexa Chung
In fact, we're becoming obsessed with many of the unexpected double-ups that are on the rise all over Hollywood. Ms Del Rey is a prime suspect for having seriously strange friend mash-ups (Axl Rose, anyone?) and we're happy to see she's now buddied up with our very own Brit girl. We already know that Alexa is BFFs with New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel and we've fondly nicknamed them the indie 'It' girls of NYC. Zooey posted photos of the pair’s New Years Eve celebrations on - you guessed it - Instagram earlier this year showing the pals sporting matchy-matchy fringes, bunny ears and fab poses.

So we’re now playing a fun game of doodling the circle of unexpected celebrity friendships that have cropped up on our Instagram feeds: Zooey is friends with Alexa who’s friends with Lana who’s friends with Jaime who’s friends with Riley Keough (that's Elvis Presley’s granddaughter to you and me). Phewf! And we’re sure there’s plenty more. Which unexpected celebrity friend mash-up is your fave?
