Anja Rubik Opens Up on Her Icons & Says "Don’t Fear the Nipple" have just crowned Polish model Anja Rubik as one of their 'Icons' and spoke to her about her own icons, her work and much more. She was also shot for the website by photographer Barnaby Roper. 

Revealing her own set of icons, it appears that Anja is influenced by several musicians, as well as some big name models and a family member:

"David Bowie, Debbie Harry, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington…and my amazing mother."

Anja, who also edits her own magazine '25', says she likes to have an empowering erotic tone to her magazine work and often takes inspiration from the 70s which she felt was a more liberal, carefree time for sex. She believes that people are currently more conservative than that generation:

"There is a ’70s feeling to 25 – an era where people were more open and free with their sensuality. The images from that decade are natural and women were happy and comfortable in their skin…it was a celebration of their sexuality! The images are super strong and incredibly iconic. When a woman is in control, self-aware, and comfortable in her skin, it is a really powerful and positive beautiful thing and I hope this comes across in 25. Women need to support women and speak their minds. I am pushing the boundaries of what a female fashion magazine can be… with this has come some backlash from people that weren’t completely comfortable with the subject. This was unexpected and made me realize that our generation is more conservative than that of our parents. Don’t fear the nipple."

Speaking on rising to the top from a young age, Anja believes modeling can be an amazing chance for a young girl if they approach it correctly:

 “Modeling is an incredible job for a girl if she approaches it with her head on her shoulders. You travel, you speak to people, and it opens your mind to different things."
