Anna Getaneh


Model Anna Getaneh, who appeared in the 1990 issue of "Sports Illustrated" Swimsuit Edition was originally born in Sweden and has lived all over the world. Getaneh, who is of Ethiopian descent, walked for designers like Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and Christian Dior and appeared on the French and US covers of Vogue. Although she no longer models, Getaneh has kept busy. In 1992, the same year the photo below was taken, she founded the Ethiopian Children Fund Project, and in 2004 launched African Mosaique, a Johannesburg-based organization that manufactures and promotes African clothing and designers. It makes sense that she found her calling in fashion. Check out how glamorous Getaneh looks in just a cable-knit sweater and polo. Don't you want to steal her casual style?
