Champagne, elegant canapes, celebrities — this was definitely not your typical Tuesday night shopping outing. Armani Exchange opened up their doors to fashionistas to preview their nightlife-inspired A/X Holiday Collection on Tuesday night. Alexa Chung, host of MTV’s It’s On With Alexa Chung, joined the store festivities to do a little shopping of her own. And the fashion It-girl, who was rocking a black boyfriend blazer, frilled white button-up shirt with a polka dot tie and cut-off shorts, told PEOPLE that she knows where to look for style inspiration. “I watch a lot of films, looking at someone like Francoise Hardy or those ’60s actresses, like Jane Birkin,” Chung explaned. “Cybill Shepherd in The Last Picture Show is amazing.” As Alexa strolled the store looking at clothes, she bobbed and sang along to indie hits — and revealed the top fashion muses she’d love to bring on her show. “I’d love to have Marianne Faithfull or Pamela Des Barres,” the talk-show host said. Questioned about whether or not her bosses would let Des Barres, the infamous rock and roll groupie, on her show, she replied, “God, I hope so!” Check out the collection for yourself at –reporting by Jeremy Gordon
