Sex Kitten Anja Konstantinova 'Feels Like She Is A Bit Of A Cat'
From Victoria by Victoria Beckham and Opening Ceremony to Carine Roitfeld's campaign for Chanel, cats seem to have taken the fashion world by storm this season.
But for model Anja Konstantinova they have always been cool.
The Russian-born, Melbourne-based beauty, 20, admits to being 'quite obsessed' with felines.
She boasts four tattoos in keeping with the theme, and even likens herself to the animal.
So a new lookbook and video campaign for Australian label Stylestalker, which required her to adopt a series of cat-like poses was little challenge.
Miss Konstantinova can be seen licking her 'paws', and nuzzling her face into a fluffy white cat.
An accompanying video sees her move in a graceful - uncannily feline - manner.
In an interview released alongside the campaign, she admits that she 'feels like she is a bit of a cat' herself.
Showing off her cat-inspired tattoos, including one on her arm reading 'cat' in Russian, and another on her inner lip that reads 'meow', she revealed: 'I reckon I was cat in my past life.
'I've actually been told I must have been a cat in my past life because I always curl up like a cat, act like a cat.'
She told how she 'gets along with cats quite well' and has two cats of her own, as well as one she is taking care of.
The cat theme also appeared in prints for Victoria Beckham's new Victoria by Victoria Beckham line
