TV presenter Alexa Chung recently returned from a long trip to New York and she’s back on the Brit fashion scene with a bang. She made an appearance at the Royal Academy of Arts in Piccadilly, London on May 30 as the attended the VIP private viewing of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2012.
What she wore:
Monochrome 60s style dress by Moschino
Alexa donned a tiny black and white dress which showed off her slim pins. The monochrome outfit featured gold-button and lace detailing on faux pockets. She teamed this ultra-chic dress with black ankle-strap pumps and a zany little straw clutch purse with a flamingo motif by Charlotte Olympia.
Hair and Makeup:
Messy waves; natural makeup
The pretty brunette left her hair loose in messy waves with the bangs carelessly brushed down the front. As always, her makeup was inspired by a natural palette with just a hint of pink on her lips and barely-discernible eye liner.

Here’s a great fashion tip from this outfit – Mix it up!
That clutch purse is so quirky! Not something you would expect to see on the red carpet. We’re pretty sure we would not even consider it as we were placing our clothes on the bed as we planned out an outfit for a glamorous evening. Alexa did though and you can see that the purse, which looks more suited for the beach, makes you sit and pay attention when paired with the dress.
Don’t be afraid to follow this tip. It’s usually the most unexpected combinations that turn out to be the most successful.
