Alexa Chung, the 28 year old British presenter, fashion maven and all-round-cool-chick has joined the cast of Gossip Girl.
Flying the flag for the UK, Alexa began filming scenes for the sixth and final season of the show, in New York yesterday, although it is not yet known whether she’ll be making a cameo appearance as herself, or indeed whether this will be her acting debut.
Both Alexa and regular Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester were snapped on set yesterday. Alexa was wearing a cute and suitably quirky aqua blue dress with red sailor-style accents whilst Leighton, who plays Blair Waldorf in the show, looked somewhat dressier in a pink Red Valentino prom dress.
Since moving from London to New York in 2009 to present the MTV show, It’s On With Alexa Chung, sadly after a couple of seasons the Americans just didn’t get the style-mavens dry sense of humour, and the show was axed. But that hasn’t stopped her topping numerous best-dressed lists, with designers and fashion brands queueing to work with her and dress her – the latest being super cool French brand Maje who have chosen Alexa to be the face of their Winter 2012 campaign.
