Fashion News Roundup: Alexa Chung is Officially an Ambassador of UK Fashion, Carine Roitfeld's New Mag, and Check Out the NYFW (NSFW) Streaker

Alexa Chung Named Newest BFC Style Ambassador: She's long been the stye ambassador to our hearts, but now Alexa Chung can add yet another title to her growing list of fashionable ventures. The British Fashion Council has named the influential Brit It-Girl their 'Young Style Ambassador,' as which she will "promote British fashion design talent to a global market." While it seems to us that Chung already does that job quite well, it never hurts to make things official. {Elle UK} Parsons Students Compete in International Fashion Showcase at London Fashion Week: The first ever International Fashion Showcase is happening now at London Fashion Week, with young designers from 19 different countries competing against each other for the Emerging Talent Award. Representing the US is a group of MFA students from Parsons, showing a collection titled "Lost Time is Never Found Again." {Racked} Carine Roitfeld Working with V on New Project? We've been anxious to hear about Carine's latest project following her departure from French Vogue, and now WWD is speculating that her new magazine may be in collaboration with V Magazine. Though Carine herself has yet to comment, she's already guest-edited an issue of the fashion mag and has reportedly been seen around the V office a lot lately... {WWD}

Here's an (Obviously) NSFW gif of the NYFW Streaker: Who said fashion week is all about clothes? Apparently there was a streaker outside of Lincoln Center yesterday. Allegedly, she was somehow promoting an improv show, and, well, why just read about it when you can watch it in action? Check out Refinery's lovely, floppy little NSFW gif. {Refinery29}

Nicole Richie's has a QVC Line, is Just Like Us: Nicole Richie's new affordable collection for QVC launches on February 24, and the reality star-turned-designer wants potential customers to know that she's just like them: "A mother of two [who] work[s]." Who was raised by Lionel Richie, is married to a rock star, and has most certainly never purchased anything from QVC in her life. But otherwise, yes! She's just like us. {WWD}

Christy Turlington Covers The Gentlewoman: More proof that supermodels are superhuman-- check out the absolutely ageless Christy Turlington on the latest cover of The Gentlewoman, with the simple (yet totally fitting) heading, "Oh Wow!" which was exactly our thought when we saw this cover. {Cover Junkie}

Ralph Rucci Possibly Filing for Chapter 11: It's been reported that the luxury designer has been meeting with lawyers to file for bankruptcy. Rucci, who canceled his show this season (holding studio appointments instead), could be more than $7million in debt for owed money to supplies, lenders, and personal taxes. Hopefully this will serve as a necessary wake-up call rather than the end of his line. {NY Mag}

Models' NYFW Street Style Watch: You've seen shots of what all your favorite models were wearing on the runway at NYFW, but what about when they left Lincoln Center? Here are some street snaps of Liya, Gisele, et al in their own sharp ensembles. {FabSugar}

Mary Quant's Pants Gave Her Orgasms: Miniskirt inventor and '60s super designer Mary Quant has a very candid talk with the Telegraph, saying, among other things, that she had never seen a fat person until she came to the US (gee, thanks!), Coco Chanel didn't like her very much, and that her pants were so tight back in the day that they made her orgasm. Hey Mary, who made those pants, exactly?? {Telegraph}
