I ACTUALLY LIKE ALEXA

..on the October cover of Harper's Bazaar.

She features as BOTH the UK and Australian cover girl this month, and I'm seriously loving these pics so much more than I expected to:


UK

Oz

I always think she photographs really samey and bland and I'm usually just NOT into her look (trying too hard to look like you haven't tried at all much?) BUT I have to admit she's gorgeous here! The decison to go for a darker crop has been the best move ever!

The only niggling thing is that the Australian cover seems really summery - I reckon this shot could be a June or July cover as it's making me think of hot sweaty days in the park rather than the onslaught of Autumn. The cool 60s vibe of the UK cover seems far more season-appropriate, no? ***

But whatever, they are both stunning. Bravo Chungy, I'm a convert. FOR NOW...



***Oh my GOD I've just realised what an eejit I am! Obviously in Australia October IS summer! Gahhhd, pretty sure that's the definition of an epic fail. Anyhoos, with that in mind, this is a perfect high-summer cover. SMASHED IT.

Hehe I was gonna comment and tell you that :p Both covers are pretty cool, and better than the recent UK Vogue. xx

I love Alexa! I like the fact that she has a brain that she is prepared to use and all the interviews I've read make her seem really nice!

I really love her bottom eye lashes in the UK cover... Yeah, I am totally aware of how weird that made me seem!
Much Love

No idea who the model is, but her mascara in the first cover is fascinating. Your note at the bottom about forgetting about the opposite seasons made me smile - I do the same. I've always wanted to have a hot Christmas in Australia.
