My brain is a big cluster of stuff. It moves quickly and loses focus quickly, so I need many projects to keep me stimulated – it’s a luxury to be able to do lots of different things: style, write, present, DJ or just consult. It can’t be any other way; I think I would shrivel up and fall asleep forever.

I always write ‘Magic Potion’ on my perfume bottles so when I use them, it feels magical – I make spells in the morning when I put them on.
Alexa Chung

Everything doesn’t have to be perfect, I’ve realised. You can learn as you go.

For my art GCSE, I did a screen print of the Queen’s head that was basically an Andy Warhol rip-off, but I didn’t realise.
Alexa Chung

My art teacher told me I’d be suited to graphic design, but I just couldn’t, because it was what my dad had done.
Alexa Chung

I don’t want to say, ‘Yeah, I changed at 30,’ because no, it was chronically the same. But I got more relaxed about things.
Alexa Chung

My image has swallowed me up! I’ve given so much out to this projected version of myself, but now I have to live up to this character that I don’t even associate half the time.
Alexa Chung

People comment on my voice. They always ask me if I’m ill.
Alexa Chung

Everyone I’ve ever fallen in love with, I just fell in love with! I didn’t date them to try.
Alexa Chung

No experience exists unless it’s a shared one.

I love the ’60s and sort of wish all design had stopped in 1967. That would be my dream. They were really just nailing it – everyone looked great – but then it started getting a bit slippery after that.
Alexa Chung

I’m indie through and through. I’ve always gone out with boys in bands.
Alexa Chung

I admire American women because they are really good at putting a look together that is sophisticated. As British girls, we lean toward being a bit more messy, a bit more undone, and maybe a little more eccentric.
Alexa Chung

I love Gap for affordable men’s sweaters.
Alexa Chung

Fashion’s a huge part of my life, but I don’t necessarily feel comfortable always talking about clothes on my personal social media.
Alexa Chung

When I used to work in television, a tip was rather than looking down the barrel of the camera and imagine people watching, which is terrifying, imagine your most discerning friend observing you, and imagine you’re just talking to them.
Alexa Chung

I feel uncomfortable in anything tight or body-con.
Alexa Chung

A roll-neck and some flat shoes is about as good as it gets.
Alexa Chung

I’m just really good at dressing my body’s proportions.
Alexa Chung

If I know something’s expected of me, I won’t wear it or do it. It just seems boring.
Alexa Chung

I have never lived in a time when people haven’t told me what I look like.
Alexa Chung

Being British, I don’t want to be all paranoid and arrogant and think people are looking at me because, really, I’m nothing.
