Alexa ChungAlexa Chung has made her Instagram account private after being subjected to a barrage of abuse about her slim frame.

The 28-year-old TV presenter posted a picture of herself on the photo-sharing site wearing a short denim dress with bare legs and ballet flats, stood next to her mother. But users quickly laid into her naturally slight figure, labeling her "too skinny" and accusing her of being anorexic.

"I'm going to be very honest. I look at this picture and think 'This is a woman not eating.' Thus, I worry for women everywhere," one wrote.

Another responded to some fans' compliments about her legs with, "THIS degree of skinny is frankly alarming, sadly. It is equally alarming that people ENVY this degree ... as it is NOT a healthy degree of underweight. Certainly, they shouldn't want to be like this."

At first Alexa just hit back with a restrained "Hi, I am here. I can read," but after another two hours of insults she announced, "OK everyone, thanks for the teen angst discussions. People are different sizes. I'm not actively trying to be a thinspo for anyone. I am now making this acct private. Byeeeeeeee."

Alex Chung’s Mean Fashion Show

Alexa ChungAlexa Chung admits her new fashion TV show is "really intense." The British beauty - who creates her own fashion range as well as TV presenting and DJ-ing - admits "24 Hour Catwalk," where designers are challenged to create a runway collection in a day, is tough and she believes even she began to go crazy as she had to stay up as long as the contestants.

"It's a very mean show. It's really intense. There's designers - there's a first round challenge where two of them go, and then the next two are really excited and pumped to be through and then we're like, 'Wait, you have to create a collection in 24 hours'. So then they have to stay awake all through the night. It's very mean, they get very emotional. But it also involves me staying up for 24 hours too! By episode six I was losing my mind," she said when speaking about the show on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Alexa is loved by many designers, with Christopher Kane previously stating she manages to always look phenomenal: "It was just one of those things. She contacts me, she wanted to wear something so it's great. She looks phenomenal, she always does."


Alexa Chung Recommends Quality Clothes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Models

Alexa ChungAlexa Chung recommends investing in expensive items of clothing.

The model-turned-TV presenter - whose unique sense of style has seen her voted one of the world's most fashionable women - says it's important to splash out on a few quality pieces as they will never go out of fashion.

"My ultimate style tip is to invest in pieces that will see you through a good few seasons - I definitely think it's worth spending a bit more on clothes you'll wear time and time again."

Although she is into fashion now, Alexa, 27, insists it hasn't always been that way: "When I was younger, I didn't really care that much about clothes, to be honest. I used to live in cowboy boots and denim skirts, and I wore a lot of my brother's clothes! The highlight of my youth was seeing Vivienne Westwood's wedding dress on The Clothes Show. People say I've got geek-chic style, but I don't try to be geeky! I think I look cool. I'm short-sighted, so I have to wear glasses. My style generally is preppy and tomboyish - I never wear anything too sexy."


Miu Miu Ends Paris Fashion Week

Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2011

Alexa Chung Dresses Like a Grandma

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Models

Alexa Chung thinks she dresses like “a granny.”

The model-turned-TV presenter revealed that while her friends tell her she dresses like someone much older than her 27 years, she thinks her “geeky” style is cool.

“Everyone says I look like a granny. I do sexy sometimes, but never slutty. I’m quite proud that geeky, asexual dressing has become cool. It’s good to promote a different look. It’s cooler to get something for a fiver in a charity shop, than spend five grand in Versace.”

However, the style icon advised she doesn’t take any fashion advice from Arctic Monkeys rocker boyfriend Alex Turner: “I reckon I’ve got it nailed, so if he doesn’t like what I’m wearing, he’s the one who’s wrong. I say, ‘You just stick with the music.’”

The svelte star - who has been accused of having an eating disorder in the past - also admitted she finds criticism about her weight very “frustrating” as she is naturally very thin. “I cannot express how frustrating it is to not be believed when you say, ‘I don’t have an eating disorder.’ I am naturally very thin. I get even thinner when I’m stressed. It angers me because I don’t want to be a pin-up for young girls just for being thin. I don’t want to be admired for being thin, as opposed to being dressed well, and I don’t want the two to get confused.”

Kim Kardashian Praises Victoria Beckham Designs

Kim Kardashian in Victoria BeckhamReality star loves Victoria Beckham’s clothes.

The E! actress often struggles to find outfits which flatter her curvaceous figure, but says that the pop star-turned-fashion designer’s dresses are ideal for her shapely behind and busty frame.

‘s totally my style icon. I wear her dresses constantly. There are some clothes out there I just can’t wear because of my body type. I definitely can’t wear short shorts! They’re not flattering! I also can’t wear anything too baggy, because being busty on top, looser fitting dresses almost make me look pregnant. I need to wear more fitted outfits. That’s why I love Victoria’s dresses so much - because they are so fitted and flattering for my body. I wear them all the time. I was so exited when Victoria Tweeted me. I’ve met her once. We have some friends in common, she’s very sweet.”

Kim’s struggle to find clothes to fit properly comes after years of needing to have her outfits altered: “I have to get a lot of my clothes customized.”

The 29-year-old beauty adores the British fashion industry, and is jealous of Kate Moss’ “effortlessly chic” sense of style. “I love British style icons. I went to see a show Alexa Chung put on out in New York. She totally has her own style and is so pretty. I also love . She’s just effortlessly chic,” she added.
