Alexa Chung wears tiny shorts in New York to show off those 'skinny' legs that landed her in hot water with fans
23:41 GMT, 5 May 2012
Critics recently branded her ‘disgusting and skinny’ after
she posted an alarming photograph of her frail appearance on Instagram.
And despite telling the public not to worry about her especially
thin legs by deleting the post altogether and making her account private last
month, Alexa Chung showed further indifference yesterday.
The 28-year-old television presenter stepped out showing off
her slender pins in a tiny pair of denim shorts.

She headed out into New York City after having lunch at Gemma
restaurant, drowning her figure in a large blue sweater.
Lugging a navy coat on one arm and a coffee coloured bag on
the other, the star impressively pounded the pavement in a pair of double buckle sandals.
Chung wore her brunette hair loose and shielded her eyes in
dark sunglasses as she traipsed the Lower East Side district.
She is single at the moment after breaking up from Arctic
Monkey’s frontman Alex Turner last year.

However Alexa received a mystery marriage proposal this
The star’s unknown admirer became apparent when a sign popped
up on a deserted back-street in Bristol, England.
The poster, which appeared overnight on a little-used lane,
appeared to be aimed at the model.

It is unclear whether the bizarre offer, which is roughly
the width of a football goal, is a genuine proposal, an optimistic message from
a fan or a publicity stunt.
Hampshire-born Alexa is currently in the United States to
take care of a number of projects, and is preparing for an appearance at the
prestigious MET Ball 2012 on Monday.
Still she managed to acknowledge the gesture with a
tongue-in-cheek reply to a twitter follower who brought it to her attention.
She wrote: ‘what if he's The One’
