Style Icon? REALLY????

Just spotted a photo of Alex Chung at one of the Golden Globe after parties.

This woman is worshipped by budding fashionistas across the world.  She is heralded for her effortless style.  So …. ahem ….. what the hell happened?

Her dress hasn’t been altered/tailored to fit which for a celebrity stylist to ignore is considered a cardinal sin.  Ever wonder why the celebrity’s always look so damn good in dresses off the rack?  It’s because a specialist tailor has completely altered the dress to fit their body to show it off to its best.  This dress is far too big at the bust, shoulders and waist.

The fabric of this dress, I’m sorry just looks so cheap.  And OMG it’s all puckered at the seams and across the front of the dress at the hem.  Just terrible and dare I say it …. looks homemade ….. badly homemade.  Also, the clumpy, black, looks like suede or velvet fabric, thick strapped shoes?  Come on!  This is a horrendous choice of footwear with such a delicate fabric dress.

I have to try and remind myself that Alexa does actually get it right MOST of the time but somehow she just seemed to have a little slip on this occasion.  You should check out some of Alex’a better fashion moments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tiny Handbags are apparently all the rage, but can they hold everything you need for a night out??

We see Alexa Chung channeling the new “tiny tote” handbag at a recent fashion show.  To be honest, I personally don’t carry alot on a night out in my handbag but I do know people who practically take the bathroom cupboard with them!  A girl that I know very well even goes as far as taking instant fake tan and her “mitt” so if she has a tan disaster, this can be quickly remedied on a trip to the ladies.  She has come to the rescue of so many girls over the years with streaked legs and arms, makes me laugh just thinking about our experiences in the ladies toilets on night’s out.

I simply take tissues, cash or card, house key, phone and lip balm.  So what do you carry in your bag?  Could you fit everything you need in a bag like Alexa Chung?
