Your afternoon just got better — and you can thank Alexa Chung. She's helping you out of that post-lunch slump with the gift of music. Yes, ditch your months-old Spotify mix, because the model-muse-TV-personality-occasional-DJ and all-around style star has put together a lil' playlist of the songs getting major rotation on her iPod right now (exclusively for R29!). The tunage was prompted by tonight's NYC party to celebrate the launch of her first campaign for hyper-chic French label Maje — it's Thursday night, after all, and Chung wants us to be just as pumped as she is.
Speaking of the new ads, Judith Milgrom, Founder & Creative Director of Maje, sheds some light on just why Chung was the only choice to front the brand: "Alexa has been an inspiration for me and the design studio team for many seasons...She is exactly the type of girl I think of when I create my collections: a working girl, always in action and who has a great knowledge of fashion." And, of course, "she knows precisely what she likes and what fits her." Says Milgrom, "I knew she would fit in with our collection perfectly."
So, what are you waiting for? This active girl wants you to get in on the action. From The Strokes to Blood Orange, Chung's choices are just the panacea to your cranky #bossproblems. Turn up the volume...and start thinking about what you're gonna wear ce soir.
