Alexa Chung Scoops the Style Award at The British Fashion Awards: INTERVIEW

Congratulations to Alexa Chung who scooped the British Style Award  for the second time at tonight’s British Fashion Awards. She was  nominated alongside the likes of Florence Welch, Emma Watson and Adele but beat them all to pick up the only accolade decided by the public  that recognises ‘an individual who embodies the spirit of the city and  is an international ambassador for London’. As you know, Grazia Daily is a huuuge AC fan  – we’ve oft raved about her hipster ways, cannot get enough of her Madewell collection and we’re thrilled about her new TV show, 24 Hour Catwalk. So we say HURRAH! WHOOP! WAYHEEY!  and  so on. But to really tip our excitement over the edge, we got the  chance to have a chat with the Chungster about Thanksgiving, dressing  like a diamond and yep, voting for herself…
How does it feel to win this award for the second time? It’s  so  amazing. It’s just nice that I’m still relevant in 2011, isn’t it? I   thought 2010 was a big one but now it’s got better. But I actually  don’t  think about clothes as much as you might think.
The public voted for this award, is that special for you? I  think it’s so nice and such an honour. But then again, my mum and dad do  use  the Internet so I like to think they were clicking that button  pretty  hard. And me, I was voting for myself.
What is it that you love about British fashion? People aren’t  afraid to be playful. We’ve got a history of celebrating the unique and  the eccentric whereas America can be quite commercial and Paris is  couture. I think it’s cool that London Fashion Week is about young  designers trying wacky things.
Why did you chose to wear this Christopher Kane dress tonight? I saw it in his collection and I just thought it was really, really  beautiful and there were a couple of other options from the same  collection – there was a blue one I really liked and a lacy number. But I  wanted to look like a diamond.
What British designers, aside from Christopher Kane, do you admire? Loads!   Erdem, Tabitha Simmons, Charlotte Olympia, J.W Anderson who I got to   sit next to tonight who’s just awesome, Vivienne Westwood…just tonnes!
What do you miss most about London when you’re not here? Everything, it’s brilliant. Funny people, self-deprecating humour, taxi  drivers that can drive properly, getting drunk on a Sunday…there’s loads  of cool things.
You celebrated Thanksgiving recently – how was that? So cool, amazing! My friend’s aunty cooked me dinner and it was really, really nice.
What’s top of your Christmas wishlist? Diamonds [laughs]. No! I want some sketch pads and pens.
And what’s next for Alexa Chung? Drinking!
Then we’ll leave you to it. Enjoy!
