Quirky Girl Crush: Alexa Chung

I haven't detailed my deep-rooted appreciation of Alexa Chung on Scarves, mostly because her TRL-replacement show on MTV has surrendered her to widespread tween worship. Still, she's clever in a way that's supported and enhanced by her Britishness; styled in a way that makes her an evergreen point of interest. The sum of her aesthetic parts (crucially, she's half-Asian) lends her likeness nicely to consumption.

It's precisely the opposite effect inspired by a banal looker like Lauren Conrad.

Found a great homage to her relationship with Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner whilst trolling for fan vids. NB the guy who is self-proclaimed too ugly even to look at them in a magazine. Ah, Blighty!
