Alexa Chung is one busy lady. Not content with having one launch party for her AG denim collection, she hopped across the Atlantic to New York where she hosted yet another starry bash to celebrate her foray into design. And, true to form, Alexa showed off a winning style combo that’s now top of our fashion priorities, and one also favoured by Anne Hathaway, who was in New York for a screening of her new film, Song One.
So what are these trendsetters telling us? Well, while we thougnt that an all-white look should be confined to the summer months, they both proved otherwise, showcasing their pristine separates in two very different looks. Anne was rocking a work-perfect outfit in an IRO blazer, trousers and top by Theory and bright white Louboutins. The glimpse of sheer fabric underneath her jacket, combined with the cropped length of her trews kept the tonal look fresh and a teeny, tiny bit edgy, which was helped by Anne’s smokey eye and fierce bob ‘do.
And as for Miss. Chung, she was demonstrating our ultimate weekend look in a silky blouse tucked-in to her white skinnies (her own collection, natch). Pointed, black-and-white Tabitha Simmons pumps and a red lip were the perfect finishing touches, and ideal for a day-to-night situation. Joined by friends including Harley Viera-Newton and Leigh Lezark, Alexa gave us all an insight into her design process on Instagram, where she posted behind-the-scenes snaps of fittings with the AG team from last year.
We’d like to think that Anne and Alexa were in cahoots, plotting together to give us the ultimate wardrobe inspo in order to cheer us up in these cold climes. Either that or it was a coincidence, and we’ve just accidentally stumbled on our new hero colour of the moment, with two ways to wear it to boot. Those celebrities, always giving!
