British model and tv host Alexa Chung is known for her individual take on style. Sourcing her inspiration from vintage stores and past icons, Alexa says she often turns to the 60s as one of her most-loved fashion eras to search for outfit ideas. She commented that she loved the outfits people wore back then: "Ronettes?...I like their cat eyeliner. Sixties Tina Turner, she looked amazing! That body. When she supported the Rolling Stones and she’s got that gold mini-dress on.”

Alexa's admits that her style hasn't always been impeccable and during the 90s she took some of her inspiration from popstars at the time and also came up with her own original look - pairing babydoll dresses over jeans - which she admits was a random outfit choice: "The androgyny. Natalie Imbruglia in the 'Torn' video. Didn’t she have on a dragon top, Maharishi combat trousers, and a navy blue hoodie. Obviously I wanted that face and that haircut. Yeah I had the baby doll dresses. I used to wear my baby doll over a pair of wide-leg jeans, though, for some reason. I loved All Saints so much. I was in an All Saints tribute band at school. I swear to God.” 

Alexa even says that she was once inspired by Britney Spears' style in her debut music video 'Baby One More Time' and tried to copy the look: '"Britney came out in 99 and early Britney is cool. I wore that to school, like, I had a school uniform: knee socks and Mary Janes, hitched my skirt up and weird fluffy things in my hair. I tried to do that a lot, sitting at my desk. So, thanks Britney. The only time I’ve been vaguely sexy.”
