Alexa Chung: I thought up Topshop looks

Alexa Chung has joked designs from Topshop Unique's newest collection were her "idea".

The style icon attended the brand's Fall/Winter 12 London Fashion Week show over the weekend, and sat in the front row alongside Anna Wintour and Olivia Palermo.

Alexa was asked about a glamorous eveningwear jumpsuit that was included in the collection. The stunning star says the luxe black silk velvet creation was reminiscent of her own signature style.

"I thought that was my idea!" she exclaimed in an interview with Grazia. "The girl wearing it did look like meand she had my eyeliner. And my parka jacket!

"It makes it easy for me because I can imagine what I'm going to look like in them."

Alexa also attended the star-studded Stella McCartney launch party that boasted a stellar A-list line-up, including Bajan beauty Rihanna.

The British designer showed her highly-anticipated presentation over the weekend, and launched her range of eveningwear with a party attended by some of the biggest names in fashion - including Kate Moss, Anna Wintour and Mario Testino.

Alexa volunteered to be hypnotised by a magician during the show-stopping extravaganza.

"I levitated and was on a bed of daggers. It was really good fun," she exclaimed.

"I was pretty scared before, but nervous more that I had to perform in front of Anna Wintour and Rihanna."
