Alexa Chung says the 60s look suits her body type.

The model-and-presenter is a huge fan of the stylish decade and takes a lot of inspiration from icons of the 60s because they share the same figure as her.

She told Britain's Harper's Bazaar magazine: "My ex-boyfriend [photographer David Titlow] showed me Antonioni's 1966 film 'Blow-Up' in my late teens. I remember seeing Jane Birkin. And I couldn't believe it. She even made just wearing a pair of tights look sexy. . . I think the 60s vibe suits my body type, which is skinny legs and a boyish frame.

"It's the groupie vibe that I'm attracted to. They had these amazing love affairs, and both the men and the women were made amazing by them. The girls in the 60s were never overshadowed by the men they dated. You can talk about Jane Shrimpton without having to mention Bailey or Terence Stamp first."

However, the 26-year-old beauty admits she briefly "fell out of love" with the decade because everyone was copying her look.

She said: "I fell out of love with the 60s for a while. I think because I was so identified with it. It's like Sienna Miller when she did boho, then suddenly stopped because she was like, 'F**k. What else can I do, because I've done it?' Everyone copied my sodding coat for a while too. It was my Harrods kid's vintage one. Every girl suddenly had one and I was like, 'Arrgh!' I got really bored of smock dresses and loafers for a while. But I feel like I'm ready to fall in love all over again."
