Having posted some shots from Alexa’s editorial in ELLE UK for March ’12 yesterday, I now have the full spread. Styled in Versace, Erdem, Miu Miu and Chanel, she looks gorgeous and stays true to her own quirky sense of style. With the cover’s tagline “She wears it well” decidedly appropriate, Alexa is styled to perfection. Despite the fact that she is renowned for her waif-like figure, I still think that Alexa has been looking too thin of late. Perhaps Brand Alexa is taking its toll?
Believe it or not these shots are that of Natalie Joos, blogger extraordinaire of Tales of Endearment, donning a bobbed brunette wig and various vintage finds, including a Lanvin dress. Photographed by Marianna Rothen, I actually thought I was looking at photographs from another era. The styling is gorgeous and the photographs unlike anything I’ve seen. This is dedication to the art of blogging.
Everything about this shoot is so pretty, without being saccharine sweet. Even though I’m loving the pastel revolution of late, white in the form of sheer lace is another option for SS12.

Alexa looking gorgeous on the cover of ELLE UK’s March cover.
My only critique is that Alexa is looking a tad, make that a lot, skinny, these days. Having signed on as Creative Director for Superga and modelling for various labels such as Vero Moda, Alexa has been in high-demand of late. Is the pressure getting to her?
