No-one does the little black dress quite like Alexa Chung. Chanel's classical muse, quintessentially British and did we mention an utter babe, Alexa is everything the LBD wearer should be. And for her photo call at an awards dinner in New York this week the, dare we say it LBD icon, did not disappoint.

Whilst most A-listers were flashing the flesh in tightly wound body-con dresses and look-at-me sparkles Alexa stuck with her signature understated but strangely alluring all-black look. The soft, over-sized fit of this drop-hem black dress was perfectly matched to Alexa's doll-like proportions and teamed with long billowing sleeves it made a great dress for an evening out in the cold New York air.

Teamed with low-cut black shoe boots and some seriously stylish rings Alexa was every bit the edgy English Rose we've come to know and love.
