Could not agree more, that it exactly what I was thinking. Alexa is a typical 'celebrity' figure, she's just very low key when it comes to relationships/scandals etc. And the event's she chooses to attends, fashion labels she works with/or endorses and publications she writes for (Vogue, Company etc.) aren't as 'trashy' so to speak. She is a rare breed of celebrity that tries not to be a celebrity and doesn't want people think of her as one. That's why she only does interviews for fashion magazines such as Vogue, because she wants to be portrayed as a fashion icon rather than celebrity. Although given the definition of celebrity that's exactly what she is. People are fooled into thinking she isn't just a celebrity because she gives off a much more classy demeanour and doesn't parade her private life all over the press.

but alexa never did reality tv she was a tv presenter and became popular due to her interviewing style on popworld and later due to her taste in clothes.
I consider tv presenter a 'real' job, starring in a reality tv show? not so much...

^No she didn't, I was a huge fan of her before I even knew who Arctic Monkeys were, because I loved the way she presented, then later her style. This is true for many people I know and who couldn't give a sh*t about AM. Most of her popularity was due to her style, I think, that's why she has been so involved in fashion and 'best dressed' lists so far - if she has plain/bad taste, no one would care as much about her, or really at all, even dating Alex.

^ I agree I couldn't care less about Alex Turner and AM and loved Alexa before she started dating him. I think it's unfair to compare her to the Kardashians Alexa is hardworking, intelligent and doesn't make money out of exploiting her private life.

I'm saying that's where her general popularity came from. how many times did we read "alex turner's girlfriend" in the articles that first came out about her?

She became popular because she is hot and stylish! No one really knows who Alex Turner is where I live...
