Baby faced Dutch model Anna de Rijk transforms for Harpers Bazaar Spain in a punk meets surfer inspired editorial. Posing for photographer Txema Yeste, de Rijk is clearly making the transition into womanhood and looks utterly convincing in fringed denim and leather ensembles embellished with studs, held together by a ricochet of safety pins. With slicked back, jet black hair and charcoal-lined eye make up accentuating her piercing baby blues, de Rijk looks menacingly beautiful.
Represented by DNA Models in New York, twenty three year old de Rijk has been modelling since 2006 and made her mark along with fellow Dutch compatriots Lisanne de Jong, Ymre Steikema and Mirte Maas at the Fall/Winter collections in 2009. De Rijk has posed for some of the fashion industry's heavyweight photographers such as Mario Testino for US Vogue, Steven Meisel and Paolo Roversi for Vogue Italia, Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinnodh Matadin for Paris Vogue, Mario Sorrenti for W Magazine. De Rijk has been able to consolidate on her editorial appeal with blue chip campaigns for Prada, Sonia Rykiel, Vera Wang, Trussardi Jeans, Top Shop and Chanel Cosmetics. If this editorial is an indaicator of things to come, de Rijk looks set to make the transition from modelling ingenue to a model with real staying power.
