When Alexa met Whitney: Two of our favourite gals chat style (natch!)
Right up the top of my favourite fashionistas pile is Alexa Chung and Whitney Port. Not only are they great style icons, they also seem quite sweet, down-to-earth and don't take themselves too seriously. So I was more than happy to see the pair sit down for a chat on Alexa's new MTV show, It's On With Alexa Chung. Being the trendsetters that they are, lots of what they talked about was fashion-related including the difference between L.A. and New York style.
"I appreciate the style so much more in New York," said Whitney. "It's much more easy going in L.A., you can get away with t-shirts and jeans every day. Here you kind of care a little bit more."
Whitney also revealed her favourite places to shop in New York, such as Opening Ceremony, Urban Outfitters and Topshop. To which Alexa replied that she went into Topshop NY recently and was greeted with a loads of English shoppers who were complaining that the prices were so expensive compared to back home.
"I was like why are you coming up to me? It's not my fault! [Laughing] It was like I was working in there and they wanted to shout at me and I felt bad," she said.
If you're in the U.S. you can check out a couple of clips from the show by clicking here. *Sigh* if only we could get the show here in the UK...
