Alexa Chung from "24 Hour Catwalk" is the host of the Lifetime reality fashion competition series. She previously hosted MTV's variety talk show "It's On with Alexa Chung."

Named one of Vogue's 2009 Most Stylish Women of the year, Alexa Chung is a global fashion maven and trendsetter. As a model and television personality, the former host of MTV's "It's On With Alexa Chung" can regularly be seen on the covers of top tier fashion magazines across the globe. Most recently, Chung was awarded the British Fashion Style Icon Award by The British Fashion Awards and appeared on the cover of the New York Times Sunday Styles Section, which declared her as "the new Kate Moss."

Before moving to New York, Chung hosted several high profile U.K. shows, including "Frock Me," "Fashion Fix," "Three's Comedy" and "Wall." She also hosted the weekly music show "Gonzo" in London for both MTV and MTV2. Chung formed part of the T4 family when she hosted "PopWorld" in April 2006 alongside Alex Zane. She has also been featured in campaigns for DKNY and New Look and is currently seen as the face for the new Lacoste Fragrance (the first woman ever) as well as Pepe Jeans. In fall 2010, Chung teamed up with J. Crew's sister line Madewell for the debut collection of "Alexa Chung for Madewell." The line, which launched in coordination with Vogue's "Fashion's Night Out," sold out various pieces within minutes. Chung's second collaboration with Madewell launched on September 22, 2011. Luxury handbag design house Mulberry honored the fashion forward beauty by naming one of the most iconic bags of the past few years after Alexa; an item that currently has a waiting list of over 50,000.

Chung was born in England in one of those places that look like they're from a Richard Curtis movie—you know, rolling countryside, a one cow village, with just her, her folks and a dog! Nothing much happened apart from when the pub's sign fell down and they had to rename the pub "Pub." She had a fav cat called Stimpy, and when she was five she wished she didn't have brown hair and that was her childhood, basically.

Then she became a model. That sucked ... you have to stand on a cross on the floor and no one talks to you, and she's what you call a talker. Modeling pays the bills, but as much as she loves teen magazines you can't really be in them when you're 22.

She dreamt of becoming a horse-riding ballerina but it just wasn't going to happen and her dad wouldn't let her join the circus ... what's a girl to do? Hey, she wasn't going to be pigeonholed so she thought why not be a TV host or an actor? Actually, scrub acting. She can't do "crestfallen." So, here she is, a bona fide English TV host coming across the pond to party with you guys.

What else is there? OK, she likes green tea, clothes and Makers Mark. She's a vegetarian, but she's scared of carbs. She's got one rule: she won't eat anything with a face on it. Her fave book is "Revolutionary Road." Her least fave movie is "Revolutionary Road." She is really good at swimming and playing the recorder, and she's really bad at singing, but she loves karaoke as much as the next guy. Her favorite fact is that a baby can crawl through the artery of a whale. She doesn't know if that's true but her friend Jack told her and he's usually right.
