Fresh-faced and filled with verve, Austrian-born model, Anna Sophie Mungenast, is certainly one to watch, and not only for her natural grace and beauty in front of the camera. Just in her early twenties, Anna Sophie has worked with well-known designers such as Christopher Kane and signature brands such as Guess Jeans and The Gap.

Anna Sophie began modelling at nineteen while pursuing Slavic Studies at the University of Vienna. Her career began in Tokyo and Shanghai where she did a lot of work for various designers and cosmetic companies throughout the region. “I love modelling. It changed my life. It made me see the world and so I am very grateful for what it has done for me.”

Anna Sophie has been traveling to New York on and off for about three years but finally made the move in September 2011 to solidify her career in the world’s fashion capital. She will be continuing her degree in Slavic Studies at Hunter College while pursuing her profession as a model.

“I love to snowboard and ski. I grew up snowboarding as a child in Austria and so skiing was also lots of fun to do when I moved from home. Now I ski as much as I can when I am not working. I really enjoy sports and being active.”

And after modelling is over? “Well, I love languages so I think I would like to become a translator, so now I’m also studying French and Russian.” Anna Sophie also designs her own dresses for fun, so who knows… Maybe Anna Sophie, haute couture designer someday? With this beautiful and bright young model, anything is possible.
