What’s your style secret Alexa?
“I think it’s important to wear what suits you and not just what people are wearing in magazines. I’ve got a very short body and really long legs, so high-waisted jeans look rubbish on me. So I wear high-waisted hotpants instead…”

- Crinkled detail
- Rolled up bottoms
- Front and back pockets
What’s your staple look?

Are you a shopoholic?
“I do spend a lot of time clothes shopping. Yeah I’ve got a problem!”

Do you get free designer goodies?
“Yes it’s amazing, but lots of it is unwearable, so I give it away”

- Jersey style stripe shorts with draw string waist
What are your tips for spring?
“I don’t really plan ahead like that and think, ‘Ooh I know that harem pants are in.’ I want some skin-tight dungarees though…”
What do you wear at home?
“I change outfits a lot. My old flatmates would be like, ‘Really? Again?’ My clothes are always strewn around the flat, so I’m always finding things again and going ‘Ooh that’s cool!”
- Pleated lantern style dress with striped jersey top
- Length falls above the knee
What do you do on a rare day off?
“I might go for tea and cake with friends or have a wander around the photography section at Waterstones. I’m not that famous so no one bothers me – and if they do they’re always really lovely!”
