Champers in hand at the NME Awards 2011, we caught up with Alexa Chung, Marina Diamandis and Juliette Lewis to talk all things wardrobe. “I’m wearing a Christopher Kane dress that I love. It’s so comfortable”, said Alexa Chung . She is, of course, referring to the cult Christopher Kane galaxy print that’s been seen on more red carpets than Diane Kruger recently.
Marina Diamandis meanwhile was championing new designer Hasan Hejazi – “I’m wearing a dress by the same designer as the dress I wore to The LOOK Show SS11 on Friday. I’m trying to show him off as much as possible at the moment – he’s brilliant, and I like being able to help my friends out.” We hope it’s not on loan; it looks like the pesky London rain got the better of her silky white floor-sweeper.
Juliette Lewis provided the classic rock’n’roll look with sequined skinnies and a leather biker, and the Hollywood heavyweight said she’s definitely more comfortable in her signature grunge looks than doing red carpet glamour “I feel more like me when I’m making music. I can dress like me. Next week I’m going to the Oscar parties and I’m going to have to be glamorous. It’s fun, but I don’t want to do it all the time.” Oh, if only we could be so complacent about VIP parties and killer couture! GG
