How many models can say they were discovered in McDonalds and have walked the runway with 90s supermodel Naomi Campbell? Well, ever since the Atelier Versace Fall Couture 2013 show, this Russian beauty can! Meet FashionTV’s Model of the Week, Anna Selezneva.

Earlier this week, leggy-blonde and model extraordinaire Anna Selezneva turned the tender age of 23. She was discovered at McDonald’s aged 17 and quickly uprooted her life in Moscow to move to Paris and pursue her ambitions as a catwalk model. Within a few short months, Anna had secured an exclusive contract with Silent Models and today is regarded as one of the world’s most successful models, ranking #36 on “Top 50” list.

A Model Success

She made her catwalk debut over the Spring 2008 season, walking for designers such as Akris, Dries Van Noten, and Céline and today can count all the designer greats on her runway resume to include Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Chanel, and Atelier Versace among others.

But model success doesn’t just stop on the runway for this green-eyed, porcelain skin model treasure; Anna has also worked with some of the greatest fashion photographers, stylists, and models on high profile campaigns, editorials, and coveted covers.

Most notably, Anna scored her first magazine cover when she was just 17 for Vogue Italia, with Vogue Russia, Paris, and V Magazine to follow shortly after. She also has been photographed by world-famous photographers Peter Lindbergh, Hedi Slimane, and Steven Meisel, in addition to Patrick Demarchelier and Mario Testino — Meisel, being the man behind her stunning CK Jeans Fall 2008-09 campaign, which was also her first!

Other high profile ad-campaigns that Anna has graced her beauty with include Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang, Chloé, and Chanel cosmetics.

Making Time

Whilst juggling a full-time modelling career, Ana nonetheless managed to graduate with a psychology degree from Moscow State University, which she plans to further when time allows.  

But it’s not all work, work, work… between her hectic fashion season schedule, Ana loves to go horseback riding just outside of Paris, where she resides; is an avid yoga fanatic; and loves to enjoy the Italian cuisine when invited to walk in Milan. Oh, the high life…
