It. That’s the name of Alexa Chung’s new book. What’s it about? Unfortunately, we have to wait until Oct. 29 to get our hands on a copy, but the fashionista did take to Twitter to share a sneak peek pic of the cover (and told followers to judge her book by it). [Twitter]

–Talk about a chic bump! Pregnant Jaime King has a fancy pajama party in a new fashion-forward spread for Lonny magazine. And the pics are too pretty not to click through. [Lonny]

–Another gift idea for dad: Dove has teamed up with Operation Homefront to help bring military families together. All purchases from Dove Men+Care products (including body washes, deodorant, face, and hair care) at Walmart will help raise money to bring troops home. [YouTube]

–Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld is known for speaking his mind, without holding back. This time he’s taking on Audrey Tautou’s 2009 role in Coco Before Chanel, and his review is pretty scathing. [Telegraph]

It’s no secret that we love nail art around here, and judging by all your submissions to our YourTurn challenge, we have a sneaking suspicion you do too.

So for our August issue, we need you to weigh in on which celeb’s manicure from the past year you most want to try. Is it Rihanna‘s tribute to Benjamin Franklin? Zooey’s cute tux nails? Katy Perry‘s assorted cutesy-pie illustrations (like cupcakes and music notes?) Kelly Osbourne’s bows, or perhaps Alexa Chung’s evil eyes?

Vote in the poll below, then check out our August issue to see whose nails nabbed the top spot!

First Look: Alexa Chung On Why Winning a Style Award Is Very Dangerous

Mar/27/2013 at 01:06 PM ET


We’ve always thought that Alexa Chung seemed like a fun person with whom to get manicures and talk style. And the latest episode of The Look, Harper’s Bazaar‘s webisodes with editor Laura Brown, proves us right.

The two stylish Brits convened at Valley, N.Y.C.’s nail art mecca, to chat office décor, Chung’s upcoming book (which will not be called “Welcome to the Chung-le,” she promises) and the hazards of winning style honors.

“I tripped over my [British Style Icon] award the other day, and it made me laugh,” Chung tells Brown, laughing. “It was on my bedroom floor. My Grammys are there, my Oscars are there, my Nobel Peace Prize…”

The Five Items Alexa Chung Says You Need in Your Closet This Fall

Alexa Chung Style Tips

She’s a woman who’s worn “shorteralls,” a bat-print sweater and, uh, this, but British model Alexa Chung insists she’s not a slave to fashion.

“I normally shop from the catwalk,” Chung told PEOPLE at the opening of the new Foundry boutique in Los Angeles recently. “So I don’t usually notice trends.” But she definitely sets them! Here, the starlet — who’s set to release a fashion-focused book in 2013 — shares her five must-haves for fall:

1. A blanket. “You can wear it as a scarf or like a weird haggard old-lady cape,” she said. “Find ones that you can drape. But I’m not talking Woodstock. No towel-robes out there! Pendleton and Margaret Howell do good ones.”

2. Ankle boots. “I’ve got a pair from Church’s, a classic riding boot. They are actually men’s, but they make them small enough for women. Black is good, but I got a wine-colored velvet pair from Penelope Chilvers. I love them!”

3. A good coat. “I like vintage leopard-print fur. But not real fur. I think Wren does a really good one. And they actually do a lighter one because it’s an L.A.-based brand.”
