Alexa Chung features on the July 2014 cover of Glamour UK after having been named entrepreneur of the year by the publication for its annual Women of the Year issue. The honor deservedly praises Alexa for her uncanny ability to launch successful products across numerous categories — think back to Alexa’s debut Eyeko range in 2013, which sold out in a day. Alexa keeps busy being herself, which often creates its own misconceptions. “There’s a gross misunderstanding as to what it is I do on a daily basis,” she explains to Glamour UK. “People will be like, ‘Have you still got a show?’ and then people in TV will say, ‘Are you doing your line still?’ or friends will be like, ‘What do you mean, you wrote that article? Do you write a bit?’ I think I represent an image maybe more than anything else.” Fact is, though, Alexa works incredibly hard and yet makes it look effortless, which surely fuels the mythology all the more. Whatever the case, Alexa is one of Glamour UK’s Women of the Year and rightfully so.
