Alexa Chung: Dark lipstick is disastrous

Alexa Chung sticks to more natural shades of lipstick as she knows dark colours look "disastrous" on her.

The British fashionista is regularly praised for her edgy look, and thinks this is because she knows what does and doesn't suit her.

Alexa makes sure to shy away from fashion and beauty fads that don't complement her features.

Speaking about her biggest fashion disaster, the star quipped: "Dark lipstick on me is both a risk and a disaster."

Alexa is famed for her preppy style, which mixes both feminine and masculine influences. The style icon avoids "comfortable" outfits as she's not sure they do her figure any justice.

"If it’s comfy it probably doesn’t look good," she smiled in an interview with Stylist.

Alexa has eclectic taste and has revealed her "go-to style inspiration". The stunning star takes ideas from both male and female icons adding: "Mick Jagger or Kurt Cobain if I’m feeling tomboyish. On a girlie day, it’s Jane Birkin or [French singer] Françoise Hardy."

Alexa likes to mix up her purchases - wearing high street, vintage and designer attire. Speaking of her last style buy, the star laughed: "Prada earrings of women dancing in banana skirts!"
