My look is pretty low maintenance, I have a great team around me for hair and make-up, and they have also taught me some great tricks over the years for when I’m doing my own.

Not everything happens for a reason. Sometimes life just sucks.

I didn’t mean to be a TV presenter, I just hated modeling. It feels very odd that it’s turned into this ‘It-girl’ thing. What does that even mean? I wear clothes and I go out. It’s so weird.

When I’m wearing makeup, I choose between doing my eyes or mouth because I don’t want to look like a beauty pageant child.
Alexa Chung

I’m interested in aesthetics, in the way things look, in finding something in an image that maybe people haven’t seen.

I think it’s every girl’s dream, a little bit, to be a model because it seems from the outside to be a glamorous industry and I was really into fashion, and I remember just being excited and wanting to be part of that.
Alexa Chung

I’d love to interview Mick Jagger, but that might be scary.
Alexa Chung

I’m not 100% nice all the time, so I find it quite hard to be really pleasant.
Alexa Chung

I’ve got an allergy to looking too neat.
Alexa Chung

Stick to the classics, and you can’t ever go wrong. I see old ladies on the street who have fabulous style and realize it’s because they are probably wearing really classic items that they’ve had for years and years. I think if you find something that suits you, you should just stick to it.
Alexa Chung

I would get very bored if I just did one thing.

When I was going to Paris for Paris Fashion Week, I’d often walk down the street and go into all the different shops that we didn’t necessarily have in the U.K., and Maje was definitely one of the ones that stood out for me.

When I was a model, I started with an opinion, but was encouraged to lose it. It began as play-acting, but then I lost sight of myself a bit: so when I did the audition for ‘Popworld’ and they asked my opinion, I felt like crying with happiness.
Alexa Chung

I’m never going to be one of those people who is good at organization. But I’m very visual. I have a catalog in my head of things I already own, so it’s easy to shop and I always know exactly what I’m looking for.
Alexa Chung

I tend to splurge on fancy dresses because I always think I’ll get a lot of wear out of them, but it’s false logic. You should really spend more money on the things you wear every day, like jeans.
Alexa Chung

My father taught me how to draw horses – for this I shall be eternally grateful.
Alexa Chung

I don’t like it when people don’t know the difference between ‘their’, ‘they’re’, ‘there’.
Alexa Chung

I’m not preaching about things you should do, I’m not political or anything. I’m probably not the best role model.
Alexa Chung

My dad cut my hair once – I wanted a bob and he gave me a bowl cut. That was a tough few years.
Alexa Chung

I didn’t moisturise when I was younger, but when I got to 27 I decided to start slathering myself in oil, and now I’m obsessed with moisturising.
Alexa Chung

I get to work with great photographers, wear lovely clothes, be part of the creative process.
Alexa Chung

If my boyfriend finds me sexy, then I don’t need that kind of male attention from anyone else.
Alexa Chung

I play guitar a bit. I’m trying to learn drums – I feel like I can play violin. I’ve never tried, but I just feel like I can.
Alexa Chung

I’m really interested in photography, like every other human being.
Alexa Chung

I prefer using cream-based products on my skin. I love having that summery dewy skin – I like using cream blushers as well.
Alexa Chung

I think it’s cool that London Fashion Week is about young designers trying wacky things.
