RUNWAY VS REAL WAY: Yves Saint Laurent Dress

Rarely one to make a fashion misstep, Alexa Chung opted for a black & blue fingerprint motif frock slashed at the waist (first seen on the Yves Saint Laurent runway for S/S 2011) to host the Elle Style Awards back in February. And while a black & blue combo may sound painful, Alexa’s choice of classic black suede pumps, patent clutch and signature ‘undone’ hair managed to keep the look ever fitting with her quintessential tomboy chic style. With deep red lips, a larger cutaway and strappy sandals, the runway look was more ‘va-va voom’. Vixen or modesty, which do you prefer?
