Alexa Chung's cheeky nickname

ALEXA Chung was nicknamed 'Pants Girl' at college.

The 30-year-old fashionista was less-than-stylish as she was growing up and used to wear a strange assortment of clothes which even led to an embarrassing nickname from one of her teachers.  

Alexa told Britain's InStyle magazine: "At sixth-form college, I would wear a cropped Pokemon t-shirt and huge combat skate trousers with my knickers hanging out - my teacher used to call me 'Pants Girl'."  

Alexa - who is the new face of Nails Inc - admitted that she is less adventurous with her style statements now, but explained how her nails have remained an outlet for bold textures and patterns.  

She said: "These days, the only area I'll experiment with prints and colours is on my nails."  

The brunette beauty has previously admitted to considering a face lift as she is worried about the ageing process.   She said: "Sometimes I'm like, 'Oh my god, I'm going to get a facelift', but I don't think I really will. I'll just live in the present and enjoy my remaining youth.  

"I do worry about my skin though. I look in the mirror and I'm like, 'Oh hi wrinkles'. But everyone I love - like [singer-songwriter] Patti Smith or [actress] Charlotte Rampling - has wrinkles and they still look beautiful."
