While mooching around Fashion Gone Rogue, I chanced upon a stunning lookbook that made my jaw drop. It was Anna Selezneva for Mango's Fall 2013 collection! I can't believe how excited I was when I discovered it, it was almost as exciting as when I found out that Cara Delevingne (my all-time favourite) was the face of Chanel (my favourite luxury label) last year! I've only just discovered who Anna Selezneva is, but I've seen enough to say that she has become one of my favourite models.
With razor-sharp bone structure and piercing pale blue eyes, this Russian clotheshorse has been making waves with her strikingly unique look and has become a favourite among top editors, photographers and designers, having recently walked for Versace at Paris Haute Couture Week. Anna was discovered when she was 17 while waiting in line at McDonald's (of all places!) and was immediately signed to Paris-based Silent Models.
Since making her catwalk debut in the same year, she has escalated to supermodel status due to her sharp yet sultry look and even people like Carine Roitfield have heralded her as the next big thing. She has numerous covers under her belt, including seven international editions of Vogue as well as Harper's Bazaar, Numero and V magazine. Labels who have favoured her come from the likes of Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren, Emporio Armani, Versace, Calvin Klein, Chloe, Chanel, Vera Wang and of course, Mango.
Anna has long been a favourite of Mango, appearing in their catalogues for past collections. This time, she replaces Miranda Kerr as the face of the Fall 2013 lookbook, which was lensed in Brooklyn, New York by shutterbug Lachlan Bailey and styled by Geraldine Saglio who had a claim to fame for her work in Vogue Paris. This season, Mango showcases a range of casual yet stylish street looks featuring ripped denim, jackets and a variety of textures and prints.
