Alexis Knox Reigns On New Look Style The Nation

For those of you who happened to tune in to T4’s New Look Style the Nation last week, you’d have witnessed our lovely Fashion Director Alexis Knox steal the crown, with her partner in crime Caia. Unphased by celebrity guest Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s vintage styling challenge Caia was able to whip up a ‘40s-influenced outfit using everything her mentor, Alexis, taught her. The duo won over the panel with their lace collection, which demonstrated the amount of skill needed to produce four head to toe outfits for the runway.

Style the Nation, hosted by Nick Grimshaw, scours the nation’s most stylish cities to find the most innovative stylists for the competition. Each week two stylists compete in a head-to-head catwalk showdown as they create four looks within 24 hours, all in the hope that they will bag a London-based New Look Stylist job on offer for the winner. The judging panel includes fashion Goliaths, Giles Deacon, and New Look Group Creative Director Barbara Horspool, along with a mystery celebrity guest. Alexis’ rival mentor is Kat Byrne from Closer Magazine; despite the on-screen rivalry, Alexis tells me that the two actually get on famously and that Kat is absolutely lovely.  T4 viewers vote for their favourite collection, deciding on a winner for each location. That’s the only way viewers can get involved with the show – they’re encouraged to create their own looks online with the possibility that they could be featured on the show.

If you can count yourself among those poor unfortunate souls who missed the first show, don’t worry, you can catch up on New Look Daily. Over the next five weeks Alexis will be fighting to keep her crown as the queen of styling. Tune in to New Look Style the Nation this Saturday 11th June.
