Why you should be jealous of Alexa Chung

Photo via

Great style, cool jobs, and all-around cheeky gal Alexa Chung wants to make you jealous... and she doesn't even mean to. Here's why:

1. She's British, therefore she has a cool factor that some American girls just don't have.

2. And speaking of that cool factor, can we talk about her sense of style? Oh my God, homegirl exemplifies what London style is... Alexa Chung's style is often effortless and eccentric, featuring nods to school boy uniform chic while remaining flawlessly feminine. I'm actually jealous that her feet look adorable in pointed shoes.

3. Besides for being a TV personality and model, Alexa is a contributing editor for British Vogue. So basically, those of us who worked themselves like dogs in journalism school and still haven't found their dream job at Vogue (not that I'm bitter)... take note.

4. - Mulberry loved her unique aesthetic so much they named a bag, the "Alexa", after her.
    - Madewell 1937 collaborated with her to create a line of signature pieces that exemplify her style:
    Alexa Chung for Madewell.
   - And most recently, she paired up with French fashion label Maje on a collection.

5. If you think about what she's done as far as putting Peter Pan collars on the map... Ridiculously cool. Did you just furrow your brow? Yup, that's jealously people. And I'm right there with you.

Alexa Chung is so effortlessly pretty, it's not even funny. With a knack for taking a printed dress and making the outfit look luxe and eccentric, her fashion sense is filled with winks and nods to her British roots, and makes us American gals jealous. 

She can be seen wearing uber girly prints from top designers like Miu Miu and Chanel one day, then laid back the next in a Topshop tee or even perhaps, penny loafers. It's all in the way she pulls off style with whit and whimsy that makes Alexa Chung someone to be jealous of.
