Anja’s Designer Amour



For super Anja Rubik, her heart belongs to one man: Anthony Vaccarello. And she’ll do anything in the name of love, even if it means stopping off in Paris to open his show (and his alone). “Although I promised myself that I would take it really easy—I only did a Gucci exclusive in Milan—I said I have to come because I missed him last season and I couldn’t forgive myself, and he couldn’t forgive me,” she says. And since the model offers her opinion on the collection from its beginning stages (Vaccarello sends her e-mails asking her for input), it’s only natural that she would want to walk the runway in the finished product. She says of her first look, a jacket with “slightly ridiculous” gold buttons: “It’s quite grotesque, and I like it.” The second thigh-baring dress, she admits, is her favorite. Rubik’s next project with Vaccarello: getting the designer to come out of his shell. “He’s still quite shy,” she notes. “But we’re working on that!”
