The comparison has been niggling in the backs of our minds for some time now, but it took a certain Mr Nick Grimshaw to get us to come out and say it: Alexa Chung and Suri Cruise are one and the same. Well not quite, but the pair do share a fondness for girly frocks and snazzy slippers. Alexa's pal, radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw tweeted this message to his followers last night: 'ATTENTION.. i think suri cruise and alexa chung are the same person. 1. nice clothes. 2. live in NYC. 3. dark hair.' Good point well made!
In order to confirm our suspicions the presenter quickly replied 'She has more clothes than me but we defo share the same style.' While we've always had a weakness for Alexa's fashion choices, we know (because she told us at the British Fashion Awards) that she likes to dress like a five-year-old. So surely at six years of age, little Suri's matchy matchy fashion sense and penchant for stripy tops and flouncy miniskirts makes her a guaranteed contender for the role of Alexa's style icon.
Alexa's youthful wardrobe has previously caught the attention of Hollywood child star Elle Fanning who said of the presenter ‘I love Alexa Chung…I think we have similar taste. She is my fashion icon. I love that four-year-old look she wears. I like high-waisted trousers. I’m working quite a Virgin Suicides look at the moment.'
If Elle is ever looking for some new inspiration she could do worse than Suri who as you can see from the gallery above is certainly giving Miss Chung a run for her money in the style stakes.
