Alexa Chung Biography
Born November 5, 1983, Chung grew up in Privett, Hampshire, raised by her English mother and Chinese-English father, a graphic designer. When she was 16, Chung was scouted as a model and, despite having been accepted by King’s College London to read English and by Chelsea College of Art and Design to do an art foundation course, she signed with Storm. After four years – and campaigns for brands including Fanta, Sony Ericsson, Sunsilk and Tampax – Chung quit modelling with the intention of attending university.
Instead, in 2006, Chung began her presenting career at Channel 4, appearing in shows including Popworld, Vanity Lair, Big Brother’s Big Mouth, 8 out of 10 Cats, Gok’s Fashion Fix and Frock Me – as well as co-hosting numerous T4 film and music specials.
In July 2007, Chung began dating Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner. In August 2008, she starred in the video for My Mistakes Were Made For You, a song by Turner’s other band The Last Shadow Puppets.
In 2008, now a recognisable face, Chung returned to modelling, fronting campaigns for Antipodium and Oxfam Revamped. In 2009 she became the face of New Look and DKNY Jeans – and in 2010 fronted the Pepe Jeans London campaign.
In April 2009, Chung moved to the US to present It’s On with Alexa Chung for MTV. The live show featured celebrity interviews and live music, but was cancelled in December 2009.
In January 2009, British brand Mulberry released its Alexa bag, frequently sported by stars including Olivia Palermo and Chung herself, and it became an instant sell-out. The satchel-style bag was reordered in a range of fabrications and colours and Mulberry credited it with a positive year’s trading.
Having written for the Independent from November 2008 to June 2009, Chung was made a contributing editor of British Vogue in June 2009.
In February 2010, she appeared on the magazine’s cover for the first time and during the same month, whilst the March issue was on sale, documented her daily fashion and style choices in the VOGUE.COM feature Today I’m Wearing. In March 2010, Chung released the trailer for her new show Frock Me which she worked on in collaboration with Henry Holland. The show ran successfully for two series.
June 2010 saw her became the face of Lacoste’s latest fragrance The Joy of Pink. She was the first female celebrity to feature in a campaign for the French brand. Just so you don’t repeat Lacoste.
Italian trainer brand Superga chose Chung as their latest face in January 2011, coinciding with their 100-year anniversary. She continued to work closely with the brand and styled their spring/summer 2012 campaign.
In June 2011 she appeared on the cover of British Vogue for the second time. She was shot by Josh Olins and wore Erdem.
In January 2012, Chung began hosting 24 Hour Catwalk which was broadcast on US network Lifetime. In the show, four designers – including Derek Blasberg and Cynthia Rowley – competed to design and create a catwalk collection in a day. She was announced as spokesperson for the annual British Designers Collective in March 2012. The Collective, a collaboration between the British Fashion Council and outlet shopping centre Bicester Village, gave the opportunity for young British emerging fashion talents to retail their collections at a six-week pop-up shop.
In May 2012, she featured alongside Pixie Geldof, Vivienne Westwood and Ian McKellen in Vogue’s June 2012 London Pride issue shot by Alasdair McLellan. June 2012 saw her become the face of French brand Maje. On receiving the role Chung told us: “I am thrilled to be the face of Maje for their autumn/winter 2013 campaign…It’s a brand I love and wear, so to be asked was a huge compliment.” In August 2012, she was spotted in New York on set of hit TV show Gossip Girl. Chung played herself in the Dirty Rotten Scandals episode of the final season of the show.
In February 2013, she fronted the campaign for Stella McCartney’s Comic Relief T-shirt collection alongside David Gandy and Kate Moss. In the same month she became a spokesperson for L’Oréal Professional.
At The Vogue Festival in April 2013, Chung spoke candidly with Paul Smith about the fashion industry in front of an audience of Vogue readers.
In September 2013, she appeared on the cover of British Vogue for the third time. In conjunction with her cover, she also took on the role of guest editor at Vogue.co.ukwhere she offered beauty tips, personal playlists and a run-down of her favourite covers. The same month saw her release her book It -an autobiography-cum-coffee-table book showcasing her musings and doodles, as well as photographs and advice. In November 2013, Chung unveiled her collaborative collection with Eyeko which featured a new waterproof mascara and the Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner.
Later that month she was announced as the new face of Longchamp’s spring/summer 2014 and autumn/winter 2014 campaigns.

On November 11, she celebrated her thirtieth birthday with guests including Florence Welch, Daisy Lowe, Harry Styles, Laura Bailey and Nick Grimshaw.
