Anna Ewers: "Iggy Pop is great for summer"
To most of us, summer is synonymous with endless nights, sandy beaches, hot cities and struggling to keep cool. Not to Anna Ewers – she prefers scenic hikes in Alaska.
She's been nicknamed Baby Bardot and was voted Model of the Year – ahead of It-girls Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner – by MODELS.com's industry vote last year. And it was definitely a well-deserved win. In the last couple of years, 23-year-old Ewers has been featured on magazine covers for Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, i-D and W, shot campaigns for top designers, and been one of twelve women featured in the ultra prestigious Pirelli Calendar.
This spring and summer we've seen her on billboards all over the world as one of the members of H&M's Forever Summer crew. Thanks to that we got a minute of the top model's time, to find out how the season ahead should be made use of according to her.
ARE YOU DIFFERENT IN THE SUMMER?
"I'm definitely a more active person. I spend a lot of time outside enjoying the sun and I love to walk everywhere. In the winter time I spend much time indoors, watching movies and reading books."
WHAT DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO DO BEFORE SUMMER ENDS?
"Have a barbecue, go swimming in a lake, [go for] long walks in nature and take a beautiful scenic hike."
TELL US ABOUT YOUR ALL-TIME FAVOURITE SUMMER MEMORY!
"[It's from] last summer when I went to Alaska. It was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen! The landscape is absolutely incredible and I would recommend anyone who hasn't been to go there."
I like to keep things simple and wear my vintage denim shorts with tank tops or a bodysuit.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO EAT IN THE SUMMER?
"I love cold watermelon. It's so refreshing when it's hot out. It’s nice to enjoy all the other fruits and vegetables that are in season too!"
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO SUMMER OUTFIT?
"I really like wearing linen and light cotton. I like to keep things simple and wear my vintage denim shorts with tank tops or a bodysuit. I have some really amazing light gauzy dresses that are simple and easy and perfect for the warm weather."
WHAT WILL YOU LISTEN TO THIS SUMMER?
"Iggy Pop is always great for summer! During the winter months I like to listen to more mediator music that keeps you calm and cosy."
IS IT POSSIBLE TO PROLONG SUMMER?
"I really enjoy autumn after the hot summer months. But an escape for a weekend to Mexico is a good way [for me] to enjoy the summer for a bit longer."
