Wed Mar 13 2013
The cover of this year’s music-minded Spring Fashion issue is graced, rather appropriately, by Alexa Chung, a British transplant who seems to have just as much passion for threads as she does for tunes. (The stylish TV personality calls musicians like Iggy Pop, George Harrison and Courtney Love fashion icons.) Check out our behind-the-scenes video of her cover shoot above.

We talked to Alexa Chung about spring fashion trends and what she plans to wear this season, her new gig hosting Fuse News and her affinity for boys in bands. “I’m scared of bright colors,” admits Alexa Chung, the coanchor of the nightly music-news show Fuse News (fuse.tv). Yet despite the model and DJ’s aversion to typical spring shades, she looks forward to the warmer season: “I like seeing trees that don’t look like they’re from a witchy nightmare.” The British style star has been feted by the fashion industry for her effortlessly cool aesthetic, receiving praise from Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld, designing two sold-out collections for Madewell, and collaborating on campaigns for Maje and Stella McCartney. Her style evolution hasn’t always been a smooth one. “I got punk a bit wrong when I was 17,” she admits. “I misinterpreted it and crossed it with some weird Pokémon-Tamagotchi hybrid, so I had this weird cyberdog look, which was really unfortunate for a lot of years.” Today she cares less about emulating others and dresses for herself. “I like to wear dungarees, and at the moment I’m into things that are comfortable,” she says. “People don’t take risks, because they’re afraid something isn’t in season, but you should have fun with fashion and wear what you want.” Time Out New York: Who is your dream interview?Alexa Chung: I’d love to interview Mick Jagger, but that might be scary.
