Alexa Chung wants to be a "Burberry boy".

The 32-year-old model-and-presenter was one of the many celebrity guests at the fashion house's London Fashion Week show - which saw them combine mens and womenswear into one see now, buy now "seasonless" presentation - on Monday (19.09.16) and was blown away by the guys on the runway.

She shared a photo from the show and wrote on Instagram: "I wanna be a Burberry boy."

And Alexa also joked the androgynous collection was influenced by her own sense of style.

She told Elle.com: "I've been wearing both boys and girls' clothes since 1983.

"It's about time everyone else caught up."

Designer Christopher Bailey took inspiration from Virginia Woolf's novel 'Orlando' and its themes of timelessness and gender fluidity for the collection, which in the absence of being described by season, was simply presented as the 'September Collection'.

He said: "What I love about 'Orlando' is that nothing is specific to one time or one gender.

"It is a book about emotion and beauty, which is what I feel fashion is about."

A copy of the book was gifted to all the guests at the show, who included Cara Delevingne, Lily James, Samantha Cameron, Freida Pinto, Nicholas Hoult and Jenna Coleman.

And both male and female models were given near identical make-up to signify there was no "true divide" between genders.

Burberry make-up artist consultant Wendy Rowe said: "There's no true divide between masculine and feminine this time, with the girls that could pass as boys, and boys so beautiful, they could possibly be girls.

"Aside from a bit more eye [contour], it's the same make-up used on the girls and the boys. We're really blurring the lines."
