Sink or Swim: Alexa Chung At The Chanel Couture Show

(Photo by Photo by Joseph Kerlakian / Rex Features via Catwalk Queen)

TV presenter/It girl/television personality/apparent designer/haver of enviable cheekbones Alexa Chung showed up to the Spring 2011 Chanel couture show wearing Chanel couture from Fall 2010 and some Prada peep-toes. Chung is fond of menswear-inspired fare and if anyone has the long and lean proportions for a look like this, it’s her. However, when I look at this photo, I’m reminded of… those awful tuxedo shirts.

What are your thoughts? Is Chung pulling off this challenging, offbeat tux dress? …Or is she a prettier version of an unimaginative frat-boy in a tuxedo shirt stained with cheap domestic beer?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

And for fun, here’s the catwalk look (with accompanying jacket) on Freja Beha. See the rest of the collection over at
