Alexa Chung’s ‘Dumb fringe’

Alexa Chung was left embarrassed when her hairdresser cut her fringe too high.

The 30-year-old star is known for her chic and stylish appearance.

However, she admits there was a time when she felt self-conscious about her looks after her hairdresser chopped off more of her fringe than she anticipated.

"I haven't moaned about my hair for a long time, so I think I must think it's ok... ish. But then, I had this thing where George, my hairdresser, cut my [fringe] really short for fashion week, without me noticing, we were in a bathroom chatting and I turned and looked in the mirror and I was like, 'Oh cool! I look like I'm from Dumb and Dumber, that's good,'" Alexa laughed to

"So then I had to style that out for a bit and be like, yeah I wanted it to be this short, it's cool. So I don't know what I want to do. It's more that I don't really give a sh*t right now. I've stopped thinking about it as much, I'm quite happy with just letting it do its thing. I feel like it will evolve on its own, of its own volition. It's got a life of its own."

The British beauty is a regular guest at fashion shows and attended the Chanel Metiers d'Art event in Dallas, Texas, earlier this month.

While there she rode a mechanical bull but admits she felt wary with top designers watching her every move.

"No [I hadn't practised]! I'm quite a good horse rider though, so I was confident that I could probably stay on a moving beast," she mused.

"I'm a good rider as it were, but there was a lot more pressure because obviously Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour and various other people were there. But that kind of fear of looking stupid in front of like, amazing people kind of urged me to grip a bit harder. It's a lot of pressure."
