Considering Alexa Chung has been crowned Style Icon Of The Year at the British Fashion Awards not one, not two, but THREE years in a row, it was about time she handed over the gong to another trendsetter - and last night, she did just that. Arriving at the glitzy shindig held at the London Coliseum, Alexa told us she was happy to pass on the fashion torch.
'It feels inevitable. I'm like, "Wow, I'm past it"', she laughed. 'All the other years, I've been really panicked incase I won because I knew I'd have to talk. This year it's quite nice to know that I don't have to come up with something good to say.'

The man to win the honour was Mr Harry Styles, One Direction star and Alexa's pal. Ever forward-thinking, the cat-eyed beauty had a sneaky suspicion Hazza may be the winner. So had she passed on any tips for speech-making? Nope. 'He probably won't understand what he's winning,' she teased.
Of course, the pair are now firm friends and just this weekend, Chungers and Styles were larking about together at Poppy Delevingne's blonde-themed hen party. 'I was Marianne Faithful,' Alexa said of her costume for the A-list shindig. 'It was a slightly awkward moment when Georgia May Jagger asked me who I was dressed as. It was really fun. A bit too fun...' We wouldn't expect anything less.
