Fashionistas flock to see icon Alexa 'nail it' with her latest BT collection

Alexa Chung

British model and style icon Alexa Chung jetted into Dublin yesterday for a whirlwind trip to launch her new collection of nail varnishes for Nails Inc.

The brunette spent yesterday afternoon in exclusive department store Brown Thomas where she showed off the collection comprising of six fabric-inspired nail polishes in leather, lace, silk, Cashmere, sequins and camo,

Alexa also met Ireland's top bloggers and fashion journalists, took selfies with fans and signed autographs.


The British beauty is a good friend of Irish designer Simone Rocha and wore a black dress with a furry sweetheart neckline and nude straps by the Dublin designer paired with shoes by Tabitha Simmons to launch her new range in Dublin.

Alexa (31) later appeared on the Late late Show with Ryan Tubridy where she spoke about her modelling career and her plans for the future.

The fashion muse once dated Arctic Monkeys front man Alex Turner, but it was recently reported that she has a new rocker boyfriend.

Her rumoured new boyfriend is understood to be vocalist Matt Hitt of British rock band Drowners.

Her spokesperson recently insisted that the pair were just friends but they have both uploaded a series of loved-up photos to their social media accounts which suggest otherwise.

Alexa is also best friends with fellow model Pixie Geldof and has been supporting her after the recent tragic death of her sister Peaches.

They attended London fashion week together with fellow model Daisy Lowe in September and it is understood that Alexa has been a constant source of support to the Geldof sisters in recent months.
