For two consecutive years,?model and television personality, Alexa Chung has been?named?the?British Fashion Awards’ Style Icon, beating out even the Duchess of Cambridge.?Though occasionally criticized for being too skinny (which she is), the 28-year old is considered to be the embodiment of contemporary British fashion, as well as the poster girl for women pursuing eating disorders worldwide.
Given her fashion star status, it’s nice to see that she is not above being seen with a clean face.?Alexa Chung without makeup looks adorable, if decidedly unglamorous.
The first photo of Alexa with a bare face was taken in July 2009. Her skin is gorgeous and her face is really interesting. While I can certainly understand her?iconic status, she’s simply too frail-looking?and the way she purses her lips annoys me.
Though she’s tensing of her lips in that prissy way again, Alexa looks very young and pretty in the next photo.?Her complexion is lovely, even against the stark background of the wall and her pale sweater. She’s a good sport for allowing herself to be seen this way, which is so different from her usual chic perfection.
