Alexa Chung finds fashion uncomfortable.

The TV presenter - whose unique sense of style has seen her voted one of the world's most fashionable women - says feeling good is not the same as looking stylish and also reveals she looks to Sir Mick Jagger and the late Kurt Cobain for fashion tips.

Asked what her most comfortable outfit is, Alexa said: "If it's comfy it probably doesn't look good.

"I go to Mick Jagger or Kurt Cobain for style inspiration if I'm feeling tomboyish. On a girlie day it's Jane Birkin or [French singer] Francoise Hardy."

Alexa claims she doesn't follow trends and admits to living in her favourite item of clothing, her denim shorts.

She told Stylist magazine: "I'm bad at trends. Just wear what you want and what suits you. My favourite item of clothing are my denim shorts which I wear almost daily. Other than that it's an antique cameo ring I got from Spitalfields Market in east London or my small CHANEL bag."

Alexa loves up-and-coming designers and at the moment is tempted to dress "head-to-toe" in Carven because she loves the designs.

She said: "I love the label Carven. Lately I've just wanted to dress head-to-toe in it because Guillaume Henry, the designer, has made a school-uniform-meets Fracnoise Hardy inspired collection, which is perfect.
