Day one of London Fashion Week can be a bit quiet on the celeb front, with heaps of A-lister’s still across the pond catching the last of the New York Fashion Week catwalks. So day two is when things really start to get exciting. Case in point our first two celeb spots of the morning – Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo. Yup, fashion’s big guns have arrived in town, and are already killing it on the wardrobe front.
Up bright and early for the first spring/summer 2015 shows of the day – and looking remarkably fresh for two ladies who’ve probably not long ago stepped off a red eye flight – Alexa and Olivia (sounds like a style double act doesn’t it?) caused a paparazzi scrum on the streets of London. All we can say is kudos for always looking so composed ladies – we almost got caught up in the frenzy and believe us when we say it wasn’t pretty!
Anyway, we know what you really want the lowdown on is their London Fashion Week looks, and as always, the duo didn’t disappoint. Alexa worked a Dennis The Menace vibe in a red and black striped jumper and grey mini skirt, accessorised with the black Mark Cross box bag and killer Tabitha Simmons shoes she’s been surgically attached to during New York Fashion Week. Olivia meanwhile, managed to make the humble cardigan look seriously covetable, going for a blue-grey utility style belted number layered over a chic black split front skirt. Cream ankle strap heels and a burgundy clutch completed the perfectly put together (as always) look.
Alexa and Olivia’s debut LFW looks score a definite double thumbs up from us. Loving them too? You’ll be pleased to know we’ve found some outfit doppelgangers on the high street. Channel Alexa’s cartoon chic with this statement striped knit from Betty Barclay. Perfect with denim, leather, midi’s, mini’s – anything really. Or snap up these look-a-like Olivia heels, which are a snip in the sale at Forever 21 right now. Right, we know where we’ll be going in our next break between shows!
