Alexa Chung And Jared Leto Change Clothes And Get Close At Paris Fashion Week

As Paris Fashion Week draws to a triumphant close, we can’t help but pull sad faces as we bid adieu to what has truly been a season of sophisticated shenanigans. Who can forget the recent emergence of a diamond gap-toothed Gaga or Kanye’s Fashion Week debut? Sigh, we can’t, and we don’t want to. But if there’s anything that can lift our spirits in these soon to be darkest of dark non-Fashion Week days, it’s Alexa Chung and Jared Leto throwing down with insane, MATCHING front row style at not one but two Paris shows. Is it just us or is something going on here?

OK, here’s what we’ve devised. At the Yves Saint Laurent show, Alexa arrived wearing the cutest black and red cocktail dress. Her bare shoulders were adorned with a simple charm necklace (bearing a HEART, mind you), black ankle-strap heels (a big trend for fall), and her trademark insouciant, bedhead hairdo. As always, there was a pink tint to her cheeks and an effervescent confidence to her hands-in-pocket stance. Jared, on the other hand, was all about in-your-face styyyyyle with an overt display of his chiseled manliness barely hidden underneath a black mesh tank. He paired it with black pants, shades, and—wait for it—RED HI-TOPS. Yep, Alexa was in all-black with a hint of red, as was Jared. Also (because we’re not done analyzing this yet), the 30 Seconds To Mars frontman was sporting charm necklaces somewhat similar to Alexa’s AND wet, slicked-back, I-just-got-out-of-the-shower hair. What does this all mean? SOMETHING? Nothing? Wait, there’s more…

At the Chanel show the next day, Alexa and Jared arrived wearing completely different (yet still matching!) outfits. Alexa looked lovely in a pale gray, slightly see-through, billowy, poet-sleeved dress accessorized with a small Chanel bag. She kept her necklace and hair the same but traded the black ankle-strap heels for nude ones. Jared went from mesh to a see-through, long-sleeved shirt, black hi-tops, and black pants that he topped with a GRAY man-skirt (um, game, set, MATCH). He, too, kept his necklaces but blew his hair dry (and WAY up) in such a way that we realized these two crazy kids have the very same hair color, too.

Here’s where it gets interesting. Alexa and Jared were seated next to each other on the front row and both chose to wear sunglasses (possibly to hide what it is we’re trying to figure out in their pretty, pretty eyes). They both smiled a bit and sat veryclose to each other in a way that got us thinking about all of this matchy-match insanity in the first place. Seriously, though, are these two SINGLE fashion darlings trying to tell us something with somewhat strategically planned outfits and a dual presence at not one, but two shows, or are we just ridiculously bleary-eyed from all of this fashion madness? Do we need to start using the term “CHETO” every time they happen to be at the same place at the same time?
