Model, designer, style icon, author and now fashion photographer…checking out the list of Alexa Chung‘s many talents is one way sure fire way of making you feel unaccomplished on a Monday morning. And get prepared to feel even more jealous of this lady.

Paper magazine – which you may recognise as the title that “broke the internet” with one very nude Kim Kardashian last year – called on Alexa to create one seriously star-studded photo diary. Snapping the likes of Pixie Geldoff in the Met Ball bathroom to Daisy Lowe laying in the sea, the fashion icon photographed her very famous friends for the magazine in an amazing set of pics which all appear in Paper’s April issue.

Here are a few of our faves:

Cara Delevingne goofing around on a boat in New York City.


Daisy Lowe showing off her amazing bod while holidaying with Alexa in the Maldives.


Dakota Johnson looking gorgeous on a boat in New York City.


And that wasn’t it for Alexa putting her journalistic talents to use this weekend.

The fashionista spoke at The Vogue Festival yesterday, making sure she looked her most stylish self for the occassion. Joining the likes of Kate Upton and Stella Tenant, Alexa was just one of many distinguished speakers at the event. She interviewed Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing, quizzing him about his life, work and his love of Instagram.

Picking possibly the most appropriate outfit ever for the occassion, Alexa donned a Vogue t-shirt which she teamed with her cream AC for AG Jeans and her favourite black patent Mary Janes. Later in the day, Alexa threw on a lightweight knit and timeless black jacket. Now that’s how to rock casual cool ladies.
