11 Weird Alexa Chung Quotes That Make Us Love Her More

Let's be real, she has our dream life: Ex-model, fashion icon, publishing a book, and proud owner of the hair that launched a thousand copycat ombre dye jobs. She interviews (and dates) musicians while floating around London and NYC doing cool jobs that don't really seem like work. But we can't be jealous, because this 29-year-old style maven has a sense of humor that's random and self-deprecating enough to win over the most vicious Chung-hater. Here are 11 of her most quotable moments (paired with 11 fantastic outfits [and a guest star!], because, well, it's Alexa).

Alexa Chung would be so annoying if she weren't so funny

Let's be real, she has our dream life: Ex-model, fashion icon, publishing a book, and proud owner of the hair that launched a thousand copycat ombre dye jobs.

On her new collaboration with L'Oréal:

With Vogue UK: "I did think I got to say 'because you're worth it' but apparently I don't get to do that. It's very sad. So it was a bit of a misunderstanding — I absolutely regret it now. No no, I'm joking — instead of that they dyed my hair a nice colour this weekend."

On showing skin:

With Time Out New York: "I find spring and summer in NYC particularly difficult to dress for because my style is absolutely based on layering. When I can’t do that, I don’t understand what I’m going to do. I hate anything sexy, and I hate a lot of flesh showing, but there’s no other option."

On how she's not high-maintanance:

With Stylist: "All this might make me sound high-maintenance, but I actually wouldn’t sweat it if my hair fell out. I’d probably get one of those bright Jamaican Rasta hats with dreads attached to it and just wear that."

On being a fashion icon:

With Fashionista: "I modeled for so long and didn't get any results from that so then it was like, really? I've been dragging my ass around castings for years without anyone saying [I had] unique style. I've really just been ripping off Jane Birkin. Sorry, has no one else seen a picture of Françoise Hardy? Look it up. I'm just the middle man."

On the inevitable break-up haircut:

With Stylist: "My advice if you’ve just suffered heartbreak or you’ve broken up with someone, is to not touch your hair. It’s the first thing women do, but you’re not in a fit state to make decisions that are long-term — you’ll have to spend the next four years growing it out. Don’t have a fringe cut. Don’t bleach it. Don’t do anything, because you will regret it. Buy a lipstick instead. Go and kiss loads of other people, but don’t fucking touch your hair, as you’ll still feel sad — and you’ll have weird hair."

On why she likes spring:

With Time Out New York: “I like seeing trees that don’t look like they’re from a witchy nightmare.”

On hair color and planes:

With Stylist: "Blonde people look better on planes. Blonde hair seems to just travel really well. If you’ve got dark, fine hair like mine, then you’ll always look crap at the end of a flight, but blondes step off the plane looking really nice and fresh. I fly a lot, so I notice these things."

On how your hair length affects your dance moves:

With Stylist: "If you’ve got long hair you can do the classic girl moves, just swinging your hair from side to side. If you’ve got short hair you’ve got to be more creative with your dance moves and inject a little comedy, I’d say."

On having thin hair:

With Vogue UK: "I often let people touch my hair because people come up and they say they've wanted a certain hairstyle of mine but their hair's not as thick. So I let them touch it because I'm like: 'Are you out of your mind? I have three strands of hair.'"

On being pale:

With Stylist: "In my mind, I always think my skin will turn a golden tan colour during the summer and I’ll end up looking like Anita Pallenberg, but it’s like I’ve got Pallenberg’s bloody wig on without the tan, so, for the next couple of months I need to focus on that."

On her celeb friends:

With Vogue UK: "Solange Knowles looks so cool. She'll turn up for brunch in a sassy lip and a full 'fro and I'm like "ugh". So if I hear she's going to be there I have to run home and change."
