[Jon Gorrigan / Grazia]
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...
It's all very well us getting to spend time with Alexa, but during Alexa Chung Week we wanted YOU to have the chance to put your questions to the star too. So we asked our Twitter and Facebook followers to send us the things they'd like to know about Britain's most stylish export and below are the responses from Alexa herself. We'll also be tweeting them from our @Grazia_live account so you'll soon know if your question was selected for Alexa to answer.
