Anne Vyalitsyna is a famous Russian top model. In Europe, she is also known as Anne V.
Blond beauty is one of the three “V”: Vodianova, Volodina and Vyalitsyna, Russian supermodels who conquered the international fashion industry.
Vyalitsina was born in Nizhny Novgorod in the family of doctors (father worked as a doctor in the football club, and mother as a pediatrician), but even as a child she did not want to walk in the footsteps of her parents. She dreamed of becoming a model.
“I’ve wanted to be a model ever since I was little, playing with my Barbie doll,” she told. “It helped (for the catwalk) that I can dance, but everything is self-taught.”
15-year-old Anna went to St. Petersburg, where a modeling agency IMG-Models invited her to participate in the MTV’s Fashionably Loud Europe, held in Milan. Young beauty took part in a modeling contest and returned home with victory and popularity in the fashion world. Soon glossy magazines began to call Anna – “Russian Princess” of the fashion world.

In 2001 she made her debut in the fall shows: Martine Sitbon, Roland Mouret and Sophia Kokosalaki. And in early 2002, the Russian beauty became the face of Chlo? and signed a contract for advertising Chance Chanel. Anna was involved in advertising campaigns for Anna Molinari and Sportmax.
In 2003 she became the main character of two glossy magazines The Face and Japanese Vogue. Anna was invited to a variety of shows, including Donna Karan, Helmut Lang, Pucci, Chlo? and Givenchy. In 2004, Anna signed a contract with Escada Sport and in the same year appeared in Alanis Morissette’s music video “Out Is Through”.
Vyalitsina’s photos appeared in the most prestigious fashion magazines: Vogue, Elle, Muse, Sports Illustrated, V magazine, Allure, Num?ro, Harper’s Bazaar and iD.
Moreover, Anna participated in advertising campaigns for Hugo Boss Orange, H&M, Desigual Gap, Esprit, Lindex, Gottex, DKNY, True Religion, Hugo Boss Green, Dylan George, Revlon, Abbot + Main, Pepe Jeans, Esprit and Louis Vuitton.
In 2009, Anna took part in Achilles International, New York Marathon, to support people with disabilities.

Anna was interested in the film industry and because of this she met the star of “Titanic” Leo DiCaprio. They had some hot nights in Ibiza in August 2009.
In 2010 she met Adam Levine (American singer-songwriter and musician, best known as the front man and guitarist for the pop rock band Maroon 5) and the two started dating. But the couple split in April 2012.
In 2011, Vyalitsina participated in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show with her boyfriend Adam Levine. She also has appeared in the music videos for Maroon 5’s songs “Misery” and “Never Gonna Leave This Bed”.
