In an era where there are not many models that can stand out for being unique, Alexa Chung is the ultimate “it” girl, the girl that doesn’t follow the rules; she makes them. Let’s meet this amazing woman who is the proof that mixed race relationships can produce the most beautiful results.
The Most Convincing Argument For Mixed Race Relationships In The Form Of A Gorgeous Girl
Alexa Chung is arguably today’s most popular model. Her breathtaking looks along with her quirky and talented personality have won her a place in every major fashion show, magazine cover, music festival, TV show, and bookcase.
Born on the 5th of November 1983 in Hampshire, England, Alexa is the daughter of Gillian Burgess and Phillip Chung. Her mother is British, while her father is Chinese. What is so fortunate about Alexa is that she has been blessed with the best features from both ethnicities, making her face a unique blend of features that work incredibly well together.
She once told beauty blog Into The Gloss: “I’m mixed race — I’ve got half-Chinese hair, half-Caucasian hair — so it’s very fine and naturally bends as it dries.”
Alexa’s Rise To Fame
When she was just 16, Alexa was scouted in the comedy tent of Reading Festival. She started modeling for a number of teenage magazines, did a number of commercials (among some of them for Fanta, Sunsilk, and Sony Ericsson) and appeared in video clips for The Streets, Westlife, Reuben, and Holly Valance. She also appeared in a show called “Shoot Me” on Fashion TV.
Following her TV success, it was onwards and upwards for Alexa, who became the face of major fashion houses, such as Mulberry (who even named a bag after her), Lacoste, Longchamp, and walked the greatest catwalks for fashion houses like DKNY, Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, and Chanel.
The British girl also likes to party and has made a name in the celebrity circles of being a party animal, often seen in music festivals, parties, and clubs. Her (huge) circle of friends includes many of the greatest names in the music and entertainment industry.
The one thing that really set her apart has been her own personality and sense of style. Alexa hardly ever provokes with her appearance, preferring to look cute and feminine and mixing garments and styles in a way that works perfectly for her, making her a style icon in her own right.
In fact, you will see her name on best-dressed lists, and very often in the front row at fashion shows. In December 2010, the British Fashion Council presented Chung with the British Style Award which “recognizes an individual who embodies the spirit of British fashion and is an international ambassador for the UK as a leading creative hub for fashion” at a ceremony at the Savoy Theatre in London. In the following years she has consistently been a winner in prestigious fashion awards like the British Fashion Awards -at which in 2011, 2012 and 2013 Chung won the British Style Award, voted for by the public.
Not content with simply being a pretty face, the stunning lady has been involved in a number of projects, from hosting to writing books (she has written two so far) and to making her own fashion line, ALEXACHUNG.
Living between London and New York, the British beauty has been linked to a number of celebrities. Her most talked about being with famous musician Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys from 2007 to 2011, and Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard (of “True Blood” and “Big Little Lies” fame) for the past 2 years. Alexa doesn’t like to discuss her personal life, but she has said that she has a real fear of dating: “I have a pathological fear of dating. If someone says, ‘Do you want to meet for dinner?’ I’m like, ‘Is that a date?’ and then usually, if they’re funny and get it, they say ‘No’.”
This beautiful, smart, talented lady who has the wisdom and logic of her Chinese father and the wit and humor of her English mother, is the living, breathing proof (if proof were needed) that mixed race relationships are a great idea.
