This New Celebrity Couple Is Too Pretty

This New Celebrity Couple Is Too Pretty

Alexa Chung and Alexander Skarsgard, the Swedish actor who made his sexy name in HBO vampire orgy?True Blood, are dating each other it seems. The ridiculously good looking couple have been engaging in run-of-the-mill PDAs in New York City this week, such as holding hands while walking through Prospect Park, the Daily Mail reports. The pair has also posed for smartphone photos, a sure sign that things are serious.

The couple has allegedly been an item since early Spring, with fan sightings of the couple enjoying breakfast together emerging on social media. We’re pretty confident these crazy kids can make it work- despite Alexa describing herself as a nightmare to date in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar this month. Having the same name isn’t something that has bothered Alexa in the past. She was Arctic Monkey’s frontman Alex Turner’s girlfriend when the band first hit the charts and overcame all the jibes possible then.

The pair split in 2009, with Alex going on to dress in suits with some sort of rockabilly quiff and Alexa pursuing her career in fashion. She has since written a book, It, and collaborates with brands on a regular basis, most notably AG Jeans on a capsule collection. Alexander is also well used to dating a style icon, having dated Kate Bosworth for two years. He also seems to have gotten the stamp of approval from Alexa when it comes to his photography skills. She posted the following snap from their loved-up excursion on her Instagram. This might be true love, folks.
