Alexa Chung Ignores Alex's Advice

Alexa Chung doesn't take style advice from her boyfriend.

The British TV presenter - who claims her style icons are the model Jean Shrimpton and actress Charlotte Rampling - admitted Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner has stopped giving her his opinion on her outfits, though she thinks he has good taste when it comes to accessorising.

She said: "Boys don't get my female heroes. But Alex doesn't pass judgement on anything I wear. He's good at picking shoes, though."

The 26-year-old brunette insists she doesn't think about her own style very much as most of the things she wears don't belong to her.

She said: "I genuinely dress to please myself. People think my wardrobe is more extensive that it is - most of it is on loan. I was joking before that everything I own has 'sample' stitched in it."

Alexa, whose skinny frame has been a subject of much debate, also insisted that she only lost a bit of weight when she was stressed out with work and drinking less alcohol.

She said: "Stress manifests itself in different ways for different people. I tend to get thinner when I'm more tired. I know plenty of skinny girls who get thinner when they're tired or stressed - it just shows up more on me because I've got a small frame anyway.

"I just tend to get more gaunt in my face when I've been working that much. I had a fatter face when I was drinking just whiskey - that's probably more unhealthy! But I don't think you can compare pictures of me and ever say I've been big."
