Hello, Alexa Chung. For her third ELLE cover turn, the British Fashion Award-winning style icon frolics in a parade of spring’s finest fashions. Thanks to our Behind the Cover video, you already know about the Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana and Erdem looks she models.
But you’ll have to read our profile to find out more about the handbag that changed Chung’s life, her new favourite garment, and how she’s using her fame to help others. (Hint: it has to do with supporting young designers. ‘Now I know more, I can see that being a designer is a f***ing hard slog. I want to make sure I’m helping, if I can,’ she says.)
Also in the March issue, director Joe Wright and actress Gillian Anderson choose the top ten young British actors talents to watch and four industry experts share their approaches to the new season.
Pick up a copy to go inside Peter Pilotto’s studio, learn why one ELLE assistant hates the idea of work-life balance, and get a masterclass in how to wear some of spring’s most directional pieces—we’re talking blue Acne culottes and orange leather skirts here.
