Former MTV hostess-with-the-mostest, Alexa Chung, is gearing up for a return to the small screen. Chung, a red carpet regular who recently worked out some design frustrations at Madewell, is currently shooting her latest series, "Thrift America". The show, scheduled to air on PBS will follow Chung and Style.com editor Maya Singer on a cross country trip as they trawl thrift stores, consignment shops and garage sales, searching for buried treasures. Ah, the thrills of scoring that $3 Pucci print. Well, everybody loves a bargain--even when Karl Lagerfeld sends you clothes for free. [NYT]
