Within six months of her win, Anne V’s grace has been put to good use on Europe’s most glamorous runways, where she has modeled clothing for a veritable who’s who of designers, including Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein, Christian Lacroix, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, and Marc Jacobs. Anne V’s famous visage has also been splashed across the covers of Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, and Gloss.

In 2009, Anne V completed the ING New York City Marathon. She volunteered to guide a disabled athlete through the race for Achilles International and also Twittered about the race in real-time.
