An Watanabe is doing Anna Sui's fall fragrance ads

'Samurai' daughter heats catwalks
NEW YORK (Kyodo) The daughter of Ken Watanabe, best known in Hollywood for his role in the "The Last Samurai," has quietly struck out on her own in New York.
Model "ANNE," daughter of popular actor Ken Watanabe, poses as goodwill ambassador for Japan-Philippines friendship in February 2006. YOSHIAKI MIURA PHOTO
But few know that the model, who prefers to be known simply as "Anne," has a famous father.
Since beginning her career in Tokyo about five years ago, her face has graced the covers of several Japanese magazines and appeared on TV commercials. Now she is breaking into the competitive international fashion scene.
She walked the runway for her third New York Fashion Week in September, wearing the latest outfits from 16 different designers for the 2007 spring/summer collection.
"I don't conceal the fact that Ken Watanabe is my father, but I don't dare say that my father is Ken Watanabe," the soft spoken 20-year-old said, emphasizing that she wants to make it on her own. "When someone asks about him, I answer. That's it."
Despite having kicked off her overseas career just last year, she has already been signed as a new face for Anna Sui -- a Chinese-American designer well-known for her clothing and cosmetics line -- for her fall fragrance ads.
"It's a world campaign for Anna Sui, and I'm so glad that I was chosen as her model," Anne said.
She modeled Anna Sui's latest collection during this year's Big Apple's fashion week, which ran from Sept. 8 to 15. The highly anticipated biannual event attracts top designers, celebrities and models along with intense media coverage.
After New York, Annehas grand plans to sashay down other catwalks and model for other labels in Paris and Milan.
What separates New York from other fashion capitols is the breadth and diversity of its market.
"New York has a large market, and many kinds of people and races, so there is a wide variety of brands," she said. "I think it's interesting."
Despite her growing fame and recognition as a promising new model on the global scene, she tries to live like any other young woman. She eats at Manhattan noodle shops and takes the subway.
As a model, Anne says she strives to be "flat," meaning that she can project a different persona in each outfit she dons.
Although Japanese models continue to be underrepresented on international catwalks, Anne looks like she could become another supermodel like Ai Tominaga.

Anja for Estee Lauder and Irina for Balenciaga sound almost perfect given the state of campaigns today.

That An Watanabe is a wrong choice, but Anna Sui isn't usually that major so I doubt it will annoye the hell out of me.

from wwd:
Once again, Marc Jacobs has turned to his friend Sofia Coppola to appear in one of his ad campaigns. This time around, the "Marie-Antoinette" director will be the poster girl for his new fragrance.

Gucci I honestly have no clue about but figure Snejana and Iselin will probably be in the mix.

As for Chanel it's pretty much going to be Daria.

Hopefully Iselin again! A Gucci 3-peat would be a great way for her to bow out of the industry
