Anne Sergeyevna Vyalitsyna Russian: Анне Сергеевна Вьялицына; born March 19, 1986, also known simply as Anne V, is a Russian model. She is perhaps best known for her ongoing eight-consecutive-year run of appearances (2005–12) in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Vyalitsyna was born in the Russian city of Gorky (now Nizhny Novgorod). Both of her parents are physicians. Her father is a sports doctor for a football team and her mother is a pediatrician. Vyalitsyna started her professional modeling career at the age of 15 after IMG Models scouts saw her in Saint Petersburg while looking for new faces for MTV's Fashionably Loud Europe. She entered the contest and she won their modeling contest along with a contract with IMG Paris and, later, IMG New York. "I've wanted to be a model ever since I was little, playing with my Barbie doll," she told The Age. "It helped (for the catwalk) that I can dance but everything is self-taught."
