Last Friday at Mulberry's Frieze Project Artists dinner at Crown in New York City, the very leggy and inscrutable Alexa Chung showed up with a never-before-seen date: Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.
The British "it" girl is a big big fan of dating the kinds of boys that have lots and lots of fans: rockers. (Ugh.) She does it all the time, probably because musicians make the best boyfriends if you're completely delusional.
Even though the maybe-couple went out of their way to minimize press, Page Six was not having it. The tabloid chatted up a guest at the party to deliver this important breaking news:
“Alexa and Albert arrived together and left together. They were adamant that they were not to be in any pictures together."
The Strokes boys have spent the past decade chasing girls around Lower Manhattan, to great effect. Hammond Jr.'s last public girlfriend? Agyness Deyn, who was then pretty much the superest supermodel in New York. I'm sure he treated her so well.
Alexa Chung's last public boyfriend? Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner.
Hammond Jr. and Chung might actually be a match made in heaven: they're both totally predictable.
