Anja Rubik might still be modelling but 25 magazine, the project she started back in 2009 with husband Sasha Knezevic, is her main focus. To shake things up, the magazine has undergone a big revamp with everyone from Inez can Lamsweerde to Annie Leibovitz collaborating on the new issue, which will be unveiled today in Cannes.
1970s erotica magazine, Viva, along with Playboy and Carine Roitfeld were the starting points of reference for the issue's erotica theme. '25 is basically directed toward very strong-minded, ambitious women, who are very comfortable with themselves and their sexuality,' she told Style.com. 'I was thinking a lot recently and looking how sex is approached nowadays, and nudity, and bodies. Erotica kind of disappeared. The way we approach sex is either really prude or very vulgar.'
Anja Rubik has a lot to celebrate. This week Next revealed that she got engaged to her model boyfriend Sasha Knezevic on Christmas in Vienna after a trip to the opera. The pair haven't set a date but are aiming for a May/June wedding.
In more news, Rubik flew to Australia this week to shoot for Australian Vogue who are dedicating a whole issue to her - French Vogue did the same thing for Lara Stone and Daria Werbowy. "I'm shooting for [Australian] Vogue on the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th," she told Modelina. "They're taking me to a place in the middle of the desert. We're going to do a shoot there, which I'm really excited about because I get to see a bit of Australia. There are two shoots," she explained. "The other one is actually a good friend of mine". Anjya will appear on the cover and have a full feature in the magazine on the evolution of her style.
