It's not a book. I didn't really understand how the images fit in.

Love her fashion sense, but this book was trite and not at all inspiring.

The first book by this British fashion/ modeling icon; Alexa Chung’s It has won over many readers with her 192 page collection of anecdotes, photography, style tips, inspirations and drawings. The title refers to her constantly being labelled as an “it girl,” which she explains further in the book. Chung writes of her childhood, talking about her introduction to topics such as feminism and individuality. She looks back on the influences that pop culture had on her during her early years, including the story of how The Spice Girls supported her like “the training bra of womanhood.” Along with these reflections, she provides useful instructions on how to look “effortless”, how to take the perfect selfie, and how to become a karaoke star.
Other than makeup lessons and hair tips, It provides an insight of the world of fashion and valuable life advice suitable for people of all ages. Chung gives words of wisdom straight from her mother about the perils of heartbreak and getting over it. She also speaks about how restricting the modeling process can be in the sense of trying to find your own style and figuring out who you are.
Despite the criticism of some, I believe that Alexa Chung has created a book directed to both teenage girls and women alike. Her words give reassurance to those going through changes in who they are, whether or not those changes may be for the best or for the worst. She gives a fresh take on the fashion industry and on life itself. I know that this is said to not be true, but after reading the book by this model/style guru/fashionista/television host/writer, I think that maybe some people really can do it all.

I wish I could give this zero stars.
