Alexa Chung and Tan France are as synonymous with fashion as Netflix is with chilling.
So it’s no surprise that they were selected as the faces of the streaming service’s first fashion-focused original reality TV series, Next In Fashion.
The show features professional designers from around the world all battling it out to see who will be crowned the next (big thing) in fashion.
With a different theme every week, from red carpet gowns through to streetwear, the designers have to impress both France and Chung as well as a rotating host of guest judges that include designers like Christopher Kane, Monique L’huillier and Tommy Hilfiger, through to pop culture icons like Beth Ditto and Adriana Lima.
When ELLE UK got the chance to sit down with the self-professed ‘dynamic duo’, we thought they would be the ideal contestants for our fashion game ‘It’s A Mood’ – in which we ask celebrities to walk us through their most iconic fashion looks of all time, adding some never before told context to each of the outfits.
As a veteran street style star, festival goer and red carpet walker, Chung has inspired the wardrobes of countless young women for decades, but now that she’s a fashion designer too, fans can finally wear her actual clothes.
So, from Chung’s instantly recognisable Glastonbury 2008 outfit, to the Loewe dress she wore to meet the Duchess of Cambridge (who is ‘so sweet’, FYI), we had an infinite number of key fashion moments to choose from.
France – whose is best known for helping fashion-shy men embrace their innate style on Queer Eye – also has a vast and enviable wardrobe and he animatedly talks us through his varied, fun and experimental get-ups, touching briefly on the now infamous ‘French tuck,’ and diving into the importance of showcasing Indian designers on the red carpet.
France also reveals a secret behind the Queer Eye season premiere, namely the surprising text messages her received from Jonathan Van Ness.
