Alexa Chung Learns How To Dress The French Way | ALEXACHUNGFeb 27, 2020
Welcome back to Franglais, where I learn to be a little more French. We did very well last time and learned how to create emotional drama in a relationship through Josephine de la bombe. This time I really want to know the styles of French girls. so I enlisted the help of Cammie Sherry who is a fashion journalist, podcaster, kind of blonde goddess, really, so yeah I think she's going to tell me how to wear a Brett on top fingers crossed ooh-la- hello how are you fellow
frenchoh oh i did tons last time so don't keep it in your mouth. are you
frenchI am French.
I grew up in France. I was born in France, but that's okay. So why do you have a perfect English accent? rule she said that i will come back and live in france with you on the condition that we only speak english at home, is it annoying that you don't have a french accent? Wow, do you understand how charming he is? it's frond lei it was about british style but ps the resistance is exactly because there's a certain way french women
dressthat way that you can't really emulate yeah it's very trend less i think there's also learning, I think it should be said about the way they shop, they don't go online and buy a lot of things, I think they still have the act of family shopping, you know, like we go home on the weekend to buy things that you are going to put in your wardrobe. and always stay well, which is why a cornerstone of French style is investing in the classics. those so it's not so much about fashion but more about how the clothes make you feel, this is where I'm going wrong, because I'm so contrary that I can't do what I wanted to do, for example, today it's completely ridiculous that I wear heels perspex stripper because I'm in a house and we're only making cash videos so I really wanted to use them but they're really nice.
I'd wear them, but really, the practicality is something I'd say is pretty British. experiencing the same temperature right now yes and then and wearing different levels of knitwear yes mine is yours too it will make you lie down and mine will be great to give to a cold child exactly right do you think can you give me a tour of your wardrobe and we can really get caught up in this let's take a look ok thank you I'm impressed by this situation because I feel like you lost a kitchen to a wardrobe and I respect that you respect that I respect that 1000% so we turned the office kitchen area into a walk in which is great yeah ideally if you could show me some french classics that would be great it's like bringing my kids the same isn't it is that right, jeans?
How do you find the perfect jeans? Are you just an old guy? Yeah, and I'm on a constant mission and I have to say, this is like everyone always asks me every time I post an Instagram photo on Instagram. me and jeans is the question i get the most mm-hmm where do you get your Levi's when you see a vintage store you have to walk into and have to try them on so its a rollover quest that you will never and never and never end with they denim no because i feel its the one i wear the most so i enjoy wearing it the most so i'm happy to keep updating them did you take care of them or did you change the winner? they fit perfectly when i tried them on which i'm going to read the number on it's a 501 tha Not a 501 yes they are amazing but not because the fiber ones are wider than that.
I think maybe someone else has tampered with it. perfect pump oh man yeah but you probably just got the perfect pump and then you put it in your jeans yeah but you say this. I think nowadays it doesn't give you a perfect butt because they are very thick and not elastic. small there is no stretch in them at all i know idk they are really uncomfortable but they make you look so good there you go so in my mind the perfect jean has zero stretch but what you sell as a brand it needs to have like one percent elastic stretch yeah 'cause y'all got lazy and used to being cozy yeah no one said jeans were comfortable no it's a lie lie so if y'all all come undone of the idea right away like good jeans and not so chill that nobody is having a good time in good jeans they are h It's horrible that they can't hurt each other like it's something here yeah it's the bomb that oh my god you look fine, but they look great in France.
You say it's free for Sabella. that's right, it's the main expression for who you are so that's why it's better that's what your mom tells you when you're growing up your friends to brush your hair and it's pulling and you go and she lies she gave me a complete silhouette for better look, my stretch marks are just noticeable at the time, yes, but stretch marks are great and that's a very French girl thing, everything that is a little imperfect we keep it, we like it, we don't want too much makeup, we don't want hide imperfections. we want a little wrinkles you don't want to look too perfect i'm worried about wrinkles yes I'm you DeFries you don't want to look like a plastic doll you don't want to look like a filter Wow ok then you put them on the jeans what are you going to wear it with ? white t-shirt like cute little or like a little cardigan or something like tight on top mmm so nothing she likes baggy and big nothing to structure this would be a nightmare for you yeah yeah its like a big too big too colorful to say it's not so much as to go on yeah it's loud okay okay maybe like a little turtleneck something really simple and an icicle pendant over it and this is so it's tighter here more fitted i think casual is slight as a shape of your body as far as i am concerned. i'm worried this is what i look like instagram like cats and girls with baskets you're french you can still use the basket but i feel like i'm obsessed with jane birkin while i'm doing it so this is like a gym birkin basket i love it but i just everything is going well.
I still stick with her. I think there's something in a basket, you know what it is. another thing about french girls not necessarily wanting you to know where they got something from yeah it's a bit anonymous it's something that's very personal and unique to her individually and I think that's something we don't see a lot here here people tends to wear more fashion brands yeah more trends so you like you belong to tribes mm last time i went on vacation i had a basket of applause oh my god you got bossy like i'm a russian doll like i'm more little yeah that's my wallet I put them one inside the other for them here just yeah That's great so you're not checking that that's some magic I check your bag of okay okay do you have any breath in the stripes yeah you notice it feels a bit cliche when you put them on no it feels like coming home it really is my favorite thing to wear i think mm-hmm where is this one from the french brand called Molly really nice sleeves look that's a bit wider that's ok it's cheap though that's very good sleeves very well look it looks great what you just did is french is french.
I have so many stripes, larger knits mm-hmm and then I love that other size stripe and a sporty version when I'm feeling a little sportier mm-hmm this one is more for skiing yeah it definitely fits for the pole oh great ok so we have these are the classics covered so jeans really good jeans you learn and a lot of little black
dresses like me I have so many variations of the same little black look long little black dresses one would like the back another leather one oh my gosh look at this it's cool it's fantastic it's like a dual leather mini Wow so very sexy I love that ass like Marianne Faithfull girl on motorcycle yeah okay I can't find this but basically it's a dress that is completely open on the side so you can't wear underwear with it at all so from the front you're just wearing a dress but from the side you can see that you're not wearing the right to risk me I feel too exposed, yes, while I think it's pretty sexy no, it's definitely sexy today I don't have any underwear.
I don't think either. I do. I have huge panties with hearts. Can we look at the shoes? So what I want to know here is how do you deviate from the classics. because it seems like those are things that are timeless, yes, denim could be from the 90s, it could be exactly the future, but with accessories is where you manage to deviate from the classic, is where I have a lot of fun, I like it. shoes that are fun and sexy because I'm going to be wearing jeans most of the time so if I can add a sparkly sandal so there are plenty of strappy sandals so you don't mind getting cold feet, good question. there yeah i wore a lovely sock with that i don't have many not really so it's really weird i really like as you can see very simple strappy sandals because i think you can wear them with anything I don't have to worry because I just bought them in a lot of different colors so these are strong that's my friend because his stuff is really nice oh great go easy again that's when you see I end up having millions of the same thing because why do i need three pairs of mary janes yes but its because when i thought i love wearing them and its easy when i see another pair i like i know im going to wear them again good advice is once you figured out what that it suits you to be french you just need to keep buying different iterations of the exact same thing oh these are amazing yeah and this one wait i just yell grab these you just got it. i understand because i literally yell grab the lord i want it ok we have the same shoe size i'm 39 1/2 but i think i can make these work if you think you can make it work it will actually look great with the outfit Wow oh that's so good, look, no, that's sexy, yes, for the night. ok, like i was using my mom, not that my mom knew. they're blue boots they're nice floppy boots about this who is this these are my version of sharon tate i was there amazing the whole time so i wear them with all those black mini dresses it was so nice until the day manko her mango yeah and i think it's what i get asked when i wear them on the street people stop me and say where do you get this from and you can say i have to take them to the rest sorry anyone in london who wants something fixed what is it is the rest or is it called and they'll find a way to repair anything you bring them, so you've got an old bag with a broken chain or a pair of boots you've warned about forever, even if it means they have to change the design a bit, so instead of always thinking correctly automatically i'm clearing things up t and putting new things i think it's important to try to fix the things you love instead of always wanting to replace them automatically do duaa repair yeah do you introduce fashionable things in a wardrobe but of course I like that we see them? the same things like shiny boots well thats anything but french i would say yes outerwear yes coats coats these look big big i love big coats i got it so im very tight yeah and then you throw in something huge and oversized lovely which is so pretty and so classic I always love a big coat because I feel like in the winter you can always wear it oh that looks good on you yeah oh great yeah So here's a question I've always wanted to know, what do French women go for? the gym and if so what are two gyms using?
I really can't imagine we don't like having this conversation. they don't talk about it ok so say you were g Going to the gym in France you would put on the similar gym kit then put one of these on top so you're smelling your balls not to know you wouldn't wear it would you change at the gym change the gym you wouldn't go to the gym and your gym clothes wow so they go after everything they go we're really talking about it that's the secret that's the secret can you as last thing , dress up like one of your french girls mmm and all i want and all you want, what are we going to do?
Yeah, Brett on top of that actually took Josephine's advice and now I've grown up in underwear, you look weirder and weirder, I've got her naked, people put it on, put it on. what shoes we'll give you some french ballerinas what's up oh yeah that's greatthey are lovely right we really feel more like friends. don't eat it's mine i'll eat it then hit the gym but secretly it's ok i feel so fresh oh my gosh there we have it the effortless french style has been nailed so make sure you do click the like and subscribe button ring the bell much more of this that's all she told me not to eat that
