Backstage with Anne V: "I Never Thought I Was Pretty"

Supermodel and The Face mentor Anne V may have an intimidating resume, but she's so humble and approachable you almost forget she's modeled for Sports Illustrated, Victoria's Secret, Chanel, Prada and countless other big names. Well, you almost forget. The stunning Russian beauty is by all intents and purposes a mega supermodel, and she definitely looks like one...even though she'd never admit it: "I never thought I was pretty," she tells Oxygen's Susie Castillo in a behind-the-scenes interview. "I was very tall very thin [as a kid]. No boys liked me." Well, times sure have changed! Stream the video to learn all about Anne V, from the beginning of her career, to her own stint in a modeling competition...all the way to her difficult last name. Get more Anne V on The Face!
