P eople outside the fashion circle might not be as familiar with Anja Rubik compared to other supermodels like Kate Moss or Giselle Bundchen. This might be due to her being more focused on her career instead of joining the celebrity circuit or going out with the A-listers of Hollywood.
Rubik only made headlines recently for taking the role as an editor at 25 Magazine. She has been involved with the publication for several years before taking full editorial control and revamping the magazine into what the press has been referring to as “Playboy-inspired fashion magazine”. The newly-improved 25 Magazine was launched Cannes with a star-studded party at Pierre Cardin’s mansion.
Walking the red-carpet of MET Gala in a dress by Anthony Vaccarello
Leading to the launch of the erotic publication, Rubik hit the red-carpet of Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last month in a dress by Anthony Vaccarello. The barely-there dress has a slit that goes up to her hip-bone with just a strip of fabric covering her chest. Everyone was shocked and she became the center of attention that night.
But Rubik’s personal style is so much more than just skin-baring and provocative outfit. She’s never the one who does the over-the-top camera-ready model’s off duty look. She dresses up simply for herself in her very own way. There’s no frills or anything that is too shockingly vintage.

She prefers clean lines and modern aesthetic in her personal choice of outfit. Everything is very simple and well put together. Even when she does the stereotypical model’s wardrobe staples of black skinny jeans, cropped leather jacket and ankle boots; she always manages to put her own little spin by adding playful pattern or unexpected pop of color.

As for the red-carpet, Rubik looks good in pretty much everything. She can even get away with pants on the red-carpet but it’s very rare for Anja Rubik to be seen in a floor-sweeping gown or anything too princess-like. It’s all about her million dollar legs! Being the campaign girl for shoe giants like Kurt Geiger, Jimmy Choo and Giuseppe Zanotti, those legs have actually seen more red-carpets than anybody else’s!
