Anja Rubik seems to be a fixture in fashion magazines worldwide, especially when the swimsuit season arrives. There’s something about her in a swimsuit that inspires fashion editors beyond compare. She must look good with her tan on and little else, by summer style standards.
So there we are, talking about Anja and her Vogue features. She’s on the cover of Vogue Spain June 2013 and also gracing one of the main pictorials of Vogue Paris June/July 2013 issue. While in Emmanuelle Alt’s vision and Mario Sorrenti’s lenses, Anja looks like she always does (at least as far as Vogue Paris is concerned, Anja’s styling is pretty much the same in every pictorial be it for summer, winter or any other season’s issues), Vogue Spain tried to change perspectives a bit. And might have succeeded.
At least it’s another side of Anja’s, even if she’s also tanned, also dressed up to the nines after bikini standards. Photographed by Giampaolo Sgura and reminiscent of Avedon and Lauren Hutton, Anja is refreshingly wide-eyed and fashionable and although many respectable fashpeople consider her cover and associated pictorial boring and not original, they don’t need to think further than Vogue Paris and what Anja looks like in many of their photo stories.
