Trend setting 2013: Supermodels drive Europe’s roads

One supermodel driving in Europe is glamorous and exciting. Four of the world’s biggest models driving in Europe is a trend.

In no particular order…

1

Toni Garrn, Vogue’s third most popular model in 2012 (worldwide), is the proud owner of a Land Rover Freelander. She tweeted in July, ‘First time ever driving myself to work! Love my new car… wanna drive to every job in Europe now.’

Problem is, the Hamburg native is not in Europe that often. She did stop in Stockholm ‘for a couple of hours’ though before Christmas (above).

Kendra Spears, currently starring in the Armani Code perfume commercials, is another top model who likes driving. Here she is in a Porsche 911 GT3 RS somewhere in France. She says she’s looking forward to taking it on the autobahn. The GT3 RS can reach 193mph. We think she can handle it:

Her last birthday celebrations included a track day at Goodwood in this 911. Supermodel or not, we like people that like 911s. Did you know US Vogue editor Anna Wintour drives a 911, manual?

Kendra heads back to Paris in the GT3 RS after a weekend’s surfing in Biarritz.

Anja Rubik, long time international Vogue fixture, and husband – basketball player and model Saša (Sasha) Knežević – ponder the view in a shoot for Alexi Lubomirski and Vogue Russia.

Anja launched her own magazine – 25 – with a big party in Cannes last summer. But the couple did manage a real-life road trip in his native Serbia, between Belgrade and Šabac, tweeting this pic of a typical Serb roadscape.

We’re stretching it to include Victoria’s Secret and American Vogue favourite Candice Swanepoel. She’s driving the Mercedes SLS Roadster but it’s for a shoot in Miami. She does however often spend her holidays on the road, keeping a Jeep down in Brazil for that reason. She told an interviewer recently, ‘I love exploring new places and feeling that freedom.’ We couldn’t put it any better ourselves.

Finally, F1 driver Jenson Button puts us all in the shade with this campaign for Hugo Boss’ spring 2013 McLaren collection. Shot by Barcelona duo Hunter & Gatti, expect to see it all over lifestyle magazines very soon. Not sure about the outfit but the fingers are très élégantes, no?
