#TheTALKS – Alexa Chung

The internationally famous style muse Alexa Chung (British television presenter, model and contributing editor at British Vogue ) was in Hong Kong for a Longchamp private party earlier this week. Fun dessert jamming session reveals the hype side of Chung, who completely fits into the “LUSH” aspect of this talk.

How would you define your style?

My style is always a balance between the masculine and feminine sides of my personality. For example, if I wear a pretty dress, I like to pair it with flats. Or if I’m in jeans, I’ll wear a very girly blouse. It’s all about balance.

Do you remember when you first became interested in fashion?

It crept up on me. I was very particular about my school uniform and I always wanted to look different to my classmates. Finding ways to express my individuality when we all had to wear the same uniform became an enjoyable challenge. I hated when someone had the same shoes or bag as me. Now I take it as a compliment of course.

What is your best fashion memory?

First attending the Met Ball with Phillip Lim. He is such a nice, warm man. He was the perfect date and made me a tuxedo for the occasion. I kept not believing I was invited.

What are your favourite places to hang out?

Glastonbury music festival, The Bristol Hotel in Paris, Hampshire in England, Big Sur in California.

How would you spend your perfect day?

I went on a yacht and swam with a whale shark and that was nice, but it was during the day. At night I would want to go a pub in England and then jump on a plane and do karaoke in NY.

What was your childhood dream?

I wanted to be a fashion journalist, a lawyer, a fashion designer, a horse show jumper. I think I wanted to be Kylie Minogue at some point.

What is your greatest quality?

I am good in introducing friends.

………………………

Alexa Chung is definitely a witty one. #toocoolforyou is the right phrase.
