Alexa Chung Rocks Metallic Marc Jacobs Runway Pumps

I always envy Alexa Chung’s ensembles, especially her shoe collection. In January 2012, she was spotted on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon wearing ‘Runway’ pointy-toe Mary Jane pumps.

She engaged in football bowling and discussed her fashion reality series 24 Hour Catwalk, aired on Lifetime in 2012.

Alexa Chung hosted it, and each episode featured four designers who had to create a collection in just 24 hours. The show was known for its fast-paced format and its high-stakes challenges.

Sneakers were absent as Alexa Chung showcased her sporty prowess in a stunning silver Marc Jacobs shirt dress.

To complete her TV appearance, she elegantly paired it with matching metallic court shoes, exuding glamour that perfectly aligned with her signature chic style.

Pairing metallic heels with opaque black tights kept the look chic and sophisticated. Not only that, but her dress was actually a silver metallic Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 coat!
