‘IT’ GIRLS: Alexa Chung talked up her new book, either presumptuously or facetiously titled “It,” at a dinner hosted by Nylon magazine on Tuesday to celebrate her October cover. Part memoir and part girly advice manual, the tome is already out in the U.K. but hits U.S. bookstores Oct. 29 from Penguin.
Christian Siriano, Leigh Lezark, Harley Viera-Newton, Scott Lipps, Cory Kennedy and Dani Stahl were among the guests in a private dining room of La Cenita, the newest Mexican spot in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District for the event, hosted by the shoe brand Sanuk. Chung toasted the Nylon team, editor in chief Marvin Scott Jarrett and publisher Jaclynn Jarrett.

The Daily Mail of London panned Chung’s literary foray as “a collection of talent-free doodles” and “insubstantial musings on style and life,” but The Telegraph called it “surprisingly funny” with a “dry wit” that makes it “surprisingly readable.”
