We’ll admit it: We’re in love with Alexa Chung, especially after reading Anita Bitton’s Girl Crush about the cheeky British model turned journalist. And with her new show on MTV, everyone is sure to share our sentiments.
Though we hear she’s having some trouble adjusting to the New York way of life—the huge sizes that are so prevalent, learning the hard way why city dwellers wear Wellies, and the fact that her accent is hard to understand. (That we don’t get because British accents are seriously to die for.)
So the Guardian took it upon itself to attempt to figure out just who Alexa will become BFF with now that she’s a New Yorker. And while we have to agree that she and Agyness Deyn would make fast friends, we have a few suggestions of our own.
- Poppy Delevigne: They’re both British so they can reminisce together, but Poppy’s also had experience in the fashion world on this side of the pond.
- Chanel Iman: Can’t you just picture the two of them Twittering to each other all the time? Nothing brings people together like social media. Plus there’s the added bonus that Chanel was also on MTV…
- Iekeliene Stange: A self-proclaimed lover of vintage, she could show Alexa the ropes around the second-hand stores of the East Village, Lower East Side, and Brooklyn’s Williamsburg.
- Kate Moss: The two are both huge fans of music festivals, so it’s only a matter of time before they run into each other and start talking style and music.
