Model Spotlight: Anja Leuenberger

By Ashley Wright

"Anja! Anja! Anja!" That's us cheering in the stands for this 5'11" brown eyed, haired Swiss beauty as she rocks the fashion world! If fashion and modeling were a sport, Anja Leuenberger would be one of the must-see star players! She has a certain flare and spunky personality that we have fallen in love with.  FVM was very fortunate to catch up with Anja while she was on vacation. Don't blink, don't change the channel, Anja is the model to watch come this fashion season!
