Alexa Chung Wants to Be Buried in This Dress—Can You Blame Her?

Being a celebrity comes with plenty of perks, but easily one of our favorites is the access to designer clothes. Alexa Chung, for instance, gets to wear any brand under the sun, but she just revealed that there is one look that stands out from the rest. In a new interview with InStyle, Chung was quick to respond when asked about her favorite outfit of all time: a Chanel dress she wore back in 2011.

"I've been lucky enough to wear Chanel in the past and there's this one midnight blue-and-black tuxedo dress that I wore to the couture shows—it was traditional, but really special," she told the magazine. "I asked to be buried in it. They never really gave me an answer, though, so fingers crossed for me!"

Read on to see how she styled her favorite dress in Paris seven years ago.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
