Model

Baby Bardot

THIS BIG LIPPED, DOE EYED BLONDE BOMBSHELL HAS TAKEN THE LATEST POSITION AS A YOUNG BRIGITTE BARDOT, FOLLOWING OTHER GREATS LIKE CLAUDIA SCHIFFER AND LARA STONE. HAVING FALLEN ON ALEXANDER WANG’S LAP IN 2013, ANNA EWERS HAS CONQUERED THE MODELLING WORLD IN JUST ONE YEAR.

This once shy and reserved girl had the pure luck of being discovered by the renowned fashion designer Alexander Wang, but since then, she has brought everything to the table herself. Ewers has the perfect key to success when working in the modelling world, namely a healthy attitude towards modelling, an overload of talent and an honest passion for what she does.

STARTED WITH A TRIP

Up to the age of 16 years old, Ewers had always led a very normal life in her hometown Freiburg, Germany. Her upbringing was that of everybody else’s. One year, Anna travelled to Colombia through her school, to study there for a year. One of her fellow students from Colombia insisted Anna was so beautiful and must come see her agent.

Ewers reluctantly tagged along and found herself being praised by the agency, instantly offering a contract. However, the beauty had other plans for her life. An education was too important to her and so she decided to opt out, leaving the allure of the fashion world behind her and devoting her full attention to her schooling. Ewers doubted she could ever make it as an international model. Sure they loved her in Colombia, but then again, there are very few blondes working there. Anna knew that back in Germany, she would be a dime a dozen.

While she was finishing her education back in Germany, scouts were constantly pursuing Anna. In 2012, once she achieved her schooling goals, Anna signed with manager, Enzio Maggiore and together they made their way down to Milan. According to Maggiore, what makes Anna Ewers such an amazing model is that “she has admirable stamina and is true to herself”.

JUST A GIRL ON A BLOG

One day Alexander Wang stumbled upon a photo of an undeniable beauty on a blog. The girl instantly grasped something in his heart and he put his casting agent to work to find her. Anna Ewers successful future was born.
Wang offered Ewers a spot in his upcoming show for Balenciaga F/W 2013 and with this paved her way to greatness. From here, the requests just kept on rolling in, offering Anna spots in shows for prestigious labels, such as Chanel, Balmain and Prada. A dream dreamt by many, achieved by few. Ewers has since been Alexander Wang’s muse and close friend.

SHE CAME, SHE SAW, SHE CONQUERED

This striking beauty has been in the fashion world for only a short time and achieved more in just one year, than most models achieve in a lifetime. She opens shows. She closes shows. She does editorials. She does campaigns. All for the most respected labels, designers, fashion houses and magazines known to the fashion industry. She is in calendars (the überfamous Pirelli calendar to be precise). She works with some of the best fashion photographers. The list is endless. Anna Ewers is designed for greatness.

Short Facts

Trademark

Anna’s striking look is what separates her from the thousands of other models. Her face is not to be confused with “prettiness” but her essence, intense look and her radiance are what make her outstanding. She is one in a million. A role she plays perfectly is the sultry, yet angelic, sexbomb – with remarkable similarities to the young Brigitte Bardot.

Distinctive characteristics

Her personal life is dear to her and so Ewers only posts work photos on her Instagram account, creating a distance from her work life and her private life. She admires the mysteriousness of Kate Moss and therefor has taken on her approach.

Anecdote

When Ewers was in high school, her girlfriends would wear sweet, girly perfumes while she opted for a more masculine smell: Men’s deodorant.

Timeline

1993 – Just your average girl

Anna is born in March 1993 in a German town called Freiburg. She lived with her mother, Eva Schubert-Ewers (a teacher), her father (who is also a teacher) and her two older sisters. Ewers never pays much attention to fashion and is focussed on her education.

2009 – A year abroad

During a year of studies in Colombia, Ewers comes into contact with a modelling agency. Having considered a life in the fashion world, the model returns to her hometown and redirects her focus to her studies. She turns scouts down and keeps her head down. Ewers has a goal set, and is not diverting.

2012 – From schoolgirl to Super Model

After signing with manager Enzio Maggiore, the model signs contracts with famous agencies Women Management and Storm Models. Only a short while after, Anna gains the attention of Alexander Wang and is handed the golden ticket to success.

2014 – Been there, done that

During this year alone, Ewers walks 37 fashion shows (Balenciaga, Chanel, Balmain, Calvin Klein, Dior, Donna Karan, Fendi, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Versace, Prada and many, many more) and has made it to the cover of all the best magazines - to name a few, Vogue Paris, Vogue Italy and Harper’s Bazaar. In total, she has worked on more than 100 editorials, campaigns and lookbooks.
