Happy birthday, Alexa Chung! The effortlessly cool fashionista and author rings in her 31st today. As a teen, the British beauty took the modeling world by storm appearing in teen magazines and music videos while developing her TV personality. In 2010, Mulberry launched the "Alexa" bag, which was inspired by the brunette beauty's distinctive style (a collection that instantly sold out). Later on, the British Fashion Council presented Chung with the British Style Award, an honor she received for two consecutive years.

It’s not surprising that the global-trendsetter is sought out by brands such as Nails Inc., Madewell, and Longchamp for collaborations. Nowadays, the queen of dungarees is working on her 20-piece collection with AG Denim set to launch January 2015. In honor of Alexa Chung's birthday, take a look at the makeup maestro's transformation.
