Anja Rubik on Failure & How Her Husband Can be her "Worst Enemy"

Polish model Anja Rubik has branched out from her modeling career: now the editor of 25 magazine and also a designer, Anja opens up on her burgeoning business ventures. She recently teamed up with Giuseppe Zanotti to create a capsule collection of shoes which she designed and now she admits that one of her biggest fears when approaching any new business idea is failure because she puts so much of herself into everything she does. She commented:

 "Being unsuccessful, whatever I decide to do, I put my energy and heart into it. I hate doing things by half. The Zanotti project was a wonderful challenge. I had always wanted to do this and had my ideas and sketches along with Giuseppe's extensive technical guidance. The shoes are an extension of me: an erotic spirit with a chic punk twist. They have a punk feel, with unique corseted lacing and piercing details but are also incredibly sexy with a refined sensibility. They are a mix of feminine and tough."

Anja opens up on her husband Sasha Knezevic who she describes as both her best friend and worst enemy:

"He is my best friend, worst enemy, love and he makes me grow both intellectually and as a person. We met on a shoot for Dolce & Gabbana and then again a few years later. Since then we have been inseparable. We are coming up to our second anniversary in July,"

When asked what traits she likes a potential partner to have, she responds:

"Ambition and sense of humour, I think the most important thing in life is growth, learning new things, exploring new areas and developing new skills. There is nothing less attractive than a passive man sitting on the couch watching television."
