Alexa Chung’s Vogue cover branded as ‘crap’ by Lucinda Chambers

ICONINSIDER — Alexa Chung’s British Vogue cover has been branded as “crap” by former fashion director Lucinda Chambers.
The 33-year-old model graced the cover of the fashion bible in June wearing a striped Michael Kors top, and Lucinda – who previously worked at British Vogue for 36 years – has slammed the issue as “stupid” and “cheesy”.
In an interview with online fashion journal Vestoj, 57-year-old Lucinda said: “The June cover with Alexa Chung in a stupid Michael Kors T-shirt is crap. He’s a big advertiser so I knew why I had to do it. I knew it was cheesy when I was doing it, and I did it anyway. Ok, whatever. But there were others … There were others that were great.”
Meanwhile, Alexa – who launched her eponymous label at the end of May – said in the issue of the magazine she believes she’s reached the right age to start a fashion label she’s young enough to be excited by a new venture, while old enough to have the experience to do it well.
She said: “This is a moment in my life where I felt I could dedicate all my attention in one direction.
“Age has something to do with it … I’m young enough and excited enough to start something new, but old enough to think I could pull it off.”
And the model-and-presenter has big ambitions for her brand.
She added: “I’d love to open a shop. This is just the start.”
Alexa – who has collaborated with Marks and Spencer, AG Jeans and Madewell in the past – has previously admitted her friends inspire her designs.
She said: “But, really, I just want my friends to like it and people that I know. When I’m making something, I always have someone in mind. For the navy blue suit, I was like, ‘Oh, my friend Gillian would love that.’ Or the trench for Tenessee. They’re my muses.'”
