Twenty-Nine of Alexa Chung's Best Outfits

Turning 30 is an excuse to have a party; 29 doesn't seem quite as jazzy. So in case Alexa Chung's not that psyched about her 29th birthday today, we've rounded up some Alexa-palooza: 29 of her best overalls, flats, swingy dresses and smudgey eyeliner looks that are really quite an accomplishment in themselves. (Although truthfully, our most favorite Alexa outfits will always be the ones she bought while shopping in Soho with us. Casual brag.)
