Alexa Chung has proven herself to be a damn good collaborator for a host of brands over the years, from her sellout ranges for Madewell to her retro collections for denim brand AG — the first of which dropped in January 2015 — that flew off of shelves just as quickly. Clearly, the California-based label is still smitten with her: On Wednesday, it announced that Chung has signed on as the face of AG for a full year, beginning with its fall 2016 campaign. The British beauty has big shoes to fill, as she's replacing perennial "It" model Daria Werbowy, who has been the star of the company's ads for the past four seasons — including its "genderless" spring 2016 campaign, shot by Cass Bird.

While Chung will not be collaborating on another clothing collection for AG this fall, let's not lose all hope, because the designer/muse relationship between the two seems to be going strong. "Thrilled to be asked back to model the AG Fall '16 campaign. I guess they missed me as much as I missed them," Chung said in a statement. Further details remain scarce, but we're betting that the campaign images will be filled with '70s-tinged denim outfit inspiration once they hit magazines in a few months.
