Take a moment, Anna Cleveland and Models.com will not disappoint with this latest MDX feature by photographer Ben Hassett. “I had so many doors shut in my face and I always thought, ‘I need to give it another shot,’” recalls Anna speaking with interviewer Irene Ojo-Felix. “You have to find the strength within yourself, when you really want something and you really think you’re born to do something, it’s important to not give up.” Considering her current campaigns for Bottega Veneta and Vionnet, not to mention cover for Vogue Italia and evocative editorials for LOVE, W, British Vogue, and more, the mere notion of Anna facing any sort of adversity or doubt simply beggars belief. Daughter of legendary Pat Cleveland, Anna has been steeped in the culture of high fashion since birth, but at the same time she has never taken her place in it for granted and worked tremendously hard to find her own way. “I want to be remembered as being appreciative of this business. I think a lot of people think it’s not important. To me, fashion is everything and I’m so grateful to be a model. I think it’s a job that I want to carry with dignity.”
