Alexa Chung: "I've Really Just Been Ripping Off Jane Birkin"

Even if you get the same chin-length mop top; stock your closet with exclusively A.P.C., Chanel, and vintage; and, practice that gamine, caught-off-guard pose, Alexa Chung is still going to look better — but even the street-style star acknowledges that her aesthetic isn't entire original.
Said Chung to Fashionista about the fashion community's obsession with her look, "I modeled for so long and didn't get any results from that so then it was like, really? I've been dragging my ass around castings for years without anyone saying [I had] unique style. I've really just been ripping off Jane Birkin. Sorry, has no one else seen a picture of Françoise Hardy? Look it up. I'm just the middle man."
Click through to read the full interview, in which Chung also speaks candidly about another part of her look, her thinness, and why she feels like she has a harder time confronting her critics than other intelligent, working women like Lena Dunham. (Fashionista)
