Alexa Chung was one of several celebrities in attendance at Brioni's presentation in Paris on Monday during the city's couture week. It marked new creative director Justin O'Shea's debut for the label and the collection was full of striking, exaggerated silhouettes. But the fashion off the runway was just as noteworthy, thanks in part to Chung, who proved yet again that girl knows how to pull off menswear. While menswear-on-a-lady can oftentimes look campy or costume-y, Chung's take on the style was unequivocally classy. She paired a black velvet jacket with a crisp white shirt, black trousers and omnipresent Gucci loafers. And she topped it all off with a classic red lip. 

Chung's usual style has a bit of a tomboyish slant to it but this look takes it to new, winning heights. Alexa, you continue to do you, and we'll continue to be over here, bowing down.
