Meet Germany’s new shooting star, model Anna Ewers. The 22-year old model bears an uncanny resemblance to French actress Brigitte Bardot, the number one sexsymbol of the ’60s.
Anna grew up in Freiburg, Germany. She has got two elder sisters. At 16, she spent a year as an exchange student in Colombia. That’s where her model career began. A friend advised her to contact a model agency. She soon got her first small jobs in Colombia. When she went back to Germany, she didn’t really want to pursue her modelling career. She thought she was just one in a million. She nevertheless sent a few pictures to Enzio Maggiore who ran a model agency in Freiburg. He presented Anna to a few international model agencies like Women Management and Storm Models. He became her manager. She only accepted jobs at the weekend, because she wanted to finish school first.
In 2012, she started working as a fulltime model. She soon hit the catwalk for Balenciaga and Stella McCartney and posed for Vogue and W Magazine editorials. In 2014, she was one of the most successful models. She walked 16 shows in Paris and 14 shows in New York.
