Alexa broke into the biz in 2006 as a TV presenter, and fame just came knocking at her door since then. In 2009 and 2010, she landed big-time modelling stints with DKNY Jeans and Pepe Jeans London, respectively.

2009 seemed to be Alexa’s big year as she broke into the USA, thanks to her MTV stint. Even though her show, “It’s On with Alexa Chung” for MTV was short lived, her influence in fashion didn’t wane. In fact, Mulberry even named a handbag after her, which sold like hotcakes and was sported by other celebs as well!

Sealing her title as the rising star in fashion, Alexa landed her very first Vogue cover in 2010. She had gained more fame in fashion since then. Just last October, it was announced that she will be releasing her first book in September 2013. Are we looking at the next Anna Wintour? Let’s wait and see!
