British Imports

Sometimes I wonder what, besides American blockbusters and trysts with already established superstars, brings British talent under global limelight? Can a girl like Alexa Chung, who is so firmly rooted on English soil, come to garner the love and admiration of the world without those things?

If you don't know who she is, she's been touted for some time as England's new It Girl. Model, tv presenter, actress, style icon, oh yes, and paparazzi arm candy for Arctic Monkeys front man Alex Turner.

She's got that quirky, mix-it-up notion for clothes that only Londoners seem to be able to pull off. Plus, her half-Chinese heritage gives her that touch of the exotic. Only just lately have I seen her photos showing up here and there at premieres and parties. But does anyone know who she is....yet?
