Alexa Chung has joked that in times of turmoil you can get away with more risky fashion choices than usual.
Alexa Chung has quipped the upside of heartache is that you can "wear a blanket in public".
The British style icon joined a host of female celebrities in New York last night to perform a series of monologues called These Girls for Glamour magazine.
The group, which included Emma Roberts, explored feminism through the short speeches that touched on everything from bullying to boys.
“There are upsides to despair though,” Alexa joked during her revealing speech which detailed how she survived a broken heart. “You can wear a blanket in public instead of a coat.”
The front row regular shared the advice she was given about coping with heartache. Alexa says it was Marianne Faithfull who gave her an interesting tip at a stylish soiree in London.
“It’s fashion week, and I’m wasted, because that’s what happens at fashion week: you get drunk and you watch alright collections and you’re like, [clap, clap] 'That was amazing.' Glug glug. So I’m drunk, and I go up to her and I say, ‘Marianne, how did you get over Mick Jagger?’”Alexa shared.
"Her response? 'Darling, you can’t believe the lyrics.'"
Yesterday Alexa's latest campaign for French label Agatha was revealed.
Alexa is the new ambassador for the line and stars in the adverts entitled Agat’You where she displays her chic dress sense impeccably.
The brunette is also penning a style tome to be released in September.
The book will invite fashion fans into her stylish world as she divulges her inspiration, influences and top tips. © Cover Media
