Alexa Chung and FKA Twigs are known to have extremely different styles. So it came as a surprise when the MTV presenter showed up at the Serpentine Gallery summer party wearing a dress similar to the one the rapper wore to the Met Gala a few months ago.
This is the same dress that landed FKA Twigs on a number of the worst-dressed list because of the questionable decency of the dress.

The television presenter and contributing editor at British Vogue wore the Christopher Kane “Couples Lovers” lace dress with a bag from the same collection and a pair of black pumps.

You can’t help but stare at the dress. True to its name, it presents the image of two lovers who seem to be getting it on. Alexa, on the other hand, managed to make the artistic creation look elegant with her signature minimalist styling.

The English singer, songwriter, record producer, director, and dancer teamed up her dress with a pair of sandals and elaborate hairstyle.

In contrast to Alexa, the rapper emphasized the provocative panache of the dress, causing many critics to call her outfit “trashy” and “tacky”.
