Television presenter, model and contributing editor of British Vogue Alexa Chung can’t put a Louboutin-adorned foot wrong when it comes to dressing like a lady. Wearing a stunning Chanel black lace mini dress to the Chanel Show during Paris Fashion Week, our favourite ‘It Girl’ reminded us exactly why she consistently graces any ‘Best Dressed’ list worth its salt. By opting for her signature thigh-grazing-hem and channelling the gothic glamour that has been so prominent on the catwalk this year, Alexa’s look ticked all the right boxes.
AW13 collections symbolise a huge revival of our top guilty pleasure, gothic glamour. Dressed in leather and charcoal-black sheer fabrics the models at Givenchy ratcheted up the style stakes, whilst Dolce & Gabbana seduced us with beautiful black lace. Alexa’s long-sleeved, black lace mini dress captures this trend perfectly. Plus, by coupling this dress with bare legs, a simple, chained, petite shoulder bag, and leather sandals, Alexa illustrates how to make this trend work without being too over-the-top.

Complete the look with our must-have snakeskin silver box bag from Bourne, a pair of black wedged sandals and a pair of seriously cool earrings to keep your look chic and understated.
