As daughter of one of modeling’s legends, Anna Cleveland has always had a place within the world of fashion, but this year the gamine beauty has come into her own with work that raises the bar. You’ll find Anna in the pages of CR Fashion Book, Lanvin‘s latest campaign and on the couture runways for designers like Jean Paul Gaultier and Elie Saab. In an exclusive letter in CR Fashion book, Anna opens up on building her fashion family, working with Carine Roitfeld and her current career high – read the full letter at CR Fashion 

On her generation of models: I like to call everyone that I encounter on the same wavelength a ‘fashion family.’ Just like my mother had one with Karl Lagerfield, Yves Saint Laurent, Antonio Lopez, and Andy Warhol. Now I’m finally seeing my group fall into place. It’s the best thing to be surrounded by so many people that have such large input in the fashion world, and to absorb every minute of it, like a sponge, with delight, giving everything you can in the moment to create an image of art.

On the fashion industry: Fashion is a way of life. Clothing can make you feel a certain way, and all I want is to give people that feeling. I am very proud to be part of this world.

On working with Carine: I remember my first editorial. It was with CR [Carine Roitfeld] for French Vogue, at 11 or 12 years old. I was, at the time, the youngest girl ever to pose for a 13-page story. At that age, I thought that I was ready to conquer the world and my dreams; flying to Paris for a fashion shoot was just a part of that fantasy. I thought that I was all grown up and tough. In reality, I was far from it at that time.

Alexander Wang taking the reigns at Balenciaga is a story that will likely dominate the fashion headlines for the next few months. Whether you’re still in mourning after Nicolas Ghesquiere‘ departure, or simply charting the seemingly endless designer shuffle that seems to sum up the current state of flux that permeates the entire industry, this is arguably the most exciting fashion news in a long time. Ever since Cathy Horyn revealed the scoop in her NY Times column the subject has been hotly debated. The one thing everyone can agree on though, is that this begins a new chapter for Balenciaga, one that will determine the brand’s future. We will be waiting with baited breath to see what Wang comes up with for his first Balenciaga collection.

Another exciting new appointment, The Last Magazine‘s Magnus Berger has been named the new creative director of Wall Street Journal’s WSJ magazine. Considering the uniqueness and beauty to be found in every single issue of The Last, we’re expecting big things from WSJ in the coming months.

Karl Lagerfeld never stops, so it is no surprise to find that he’s part of another exciting collaboration. Lagerfeld and Brazilian line Melissa shoes have teamed up for a new global partnership, one where Lagerfeld will design 4 special footwear capsule collections, the first of which will be unveiled in March 2013.

Pre-fall collections are starting to trickle in, with new looks from Belstaff, Helmut Lang and Reed Krakoff.

The line between art and commerce blurs even further with Net-A-Porter set to launch a print magazine, which will surely be as elegant as their online editorials.

To end our news brief on a high and start the week out with some beauty, take a look at Elie Saab‘s latest fashion film, a delightful tour around Paris featuring the brand’s decadent resort collection.
