Anna Cleveland


The daughter of a ‘70s supermodel and Salvador Dali muse has established herself with campaigns at Lanvin and Bottega Veneta.


It would be expected that the daughter of Pat Cleveland, a seventies supermodel and muse of Salvador Dali, would generate some interest – but Anna Cleveland has established herself as a model to watch in her own right. Her otherworldly look – long nose, sleepy eyes and impossibly high check bones – ensure Cleveland stands out in every runway show.

Cleveland started modelling a few years ago and by 2014 she was a fashion week fixture, walking the runway for Chanel Haute Couture, Jean Paul Gaultier and Zac Posen. But it was the Giles Spring/Summer 2015 show that launched her. Strutting down the runway in front of Cara Delevingne and Yasmin Le Bon, Cleveland’s performance was met with unanimous approval.

Since then, she has appeared in Vogue Italia, Love, Glamour, Elle and Dazed, to name a few. The Autumn/Winter 2015 season saw her land her first major advertising campaigns for Bottega Veneta, shot by Juergen Teller and making use of Clevelands' snow-white complexion and strange, ethereal beauty, and the other for Lanvin, alongside her mother. 

The mother-daughter duo were in Paris filming for a L'Oréal hair campaign when Pat was diagnosed with colon cancer, immediately prompting crowdfunding from family and friends to help cover the medical costs. 

Anna is represented by Next Management.
