Alexa Chung Fashion Jury - The Presenter Gives Her Take On Her Style Successes: EXCLUSIVE

Alexa Chung is the style icon who's spawned a thousand imitators. Since landing the gig of presenting T4's Popworld back in 2006 there's barely been a week when the fashion queen hasn't topped a best-dressed list (or three). In the latest issue of Grazia, our Big Fashion Issue in fact, we speak to Alexa about turning 30, work insecurities and how strange it is to see someone steal her style. Pick up your issue now to read the interview by Francesca Babb in full, but in the meantime, you can browse all our Alexa Chung Week content on Grazia Daily, from a fashion timeline and friendship map to her hairvolution and style rules...

There's nothing we like more than a nosey around someone else's wardrobe - especially when that someone is an international style icon like Alexa Chung. To celebrate Alexa Chung Week on Grazia Daily, the presenter has given us the inside scoop on some of her most famous fashion moments, including the Phillip Lim suit she wore to her first ever Met Ball. She's since become an old pro, having attended three of the prestigious events in total, but it's that first look - a feminine twist on a tuxedo by the New York designer - that we'll always remember. Find out what Ms Chung had to say about this and more of her wardrobe favourites - and pick up styling tips in the process!

1. "Everything Marc Jacobs. This was for one of the US book signings that took place at BookMarc, I loved this sweater when I saw it but for a special event clearly it was a bit dowdy. The sequinned skirt helped bring some fun and femininity to the look."

2. "This was for the Chanel Couture Fashion show. The blue velvet dress is Chanel and I added a vintage lace top I have underneath of it to make it more interesting. The shoes are Vivienne Westwood and I wear them religiously."

3. "This was for Henry Holland's event in NYC. The skirt had a matching top that I was planning to wear but it didn't fit me so in a last minute panic I teamed it with a blue shirt. BUT then I felt like Sandy in Grease so I shoved Danny Zuko's leather over it."

4. "Ahhh The Met Ball! This was the first time I attended and Phillip Lim designed this tux for me. At our first fitting we both has the same idea--do anything but get lost in a sea of frothy gowns. We studied pictures of Bianca Jagger and came up with this design."

5. "Leaving the Jason Wu show in New York. It was SO COLD! Bag is Louis Vuitton, jacket is Maje, dress is Jason Wu, and the shoes are Prada."

6. "This was for the Valentino Supper at the Italian Embassy. I went with Jack Guinness and he kept making pals with random people and bringing them over. Fergie was one of them (as in the Royal, not the Black Eyed Pea)."
