Anne V is a powerhouse, and she’s reminding fans of her supermodel status with a recent Instagram photo.

In the April 12 post, the model posed mostly nude with a gauzy light dress covering the lower part of her body. The 37-year-old held the frock to her hip with one hand while she wrapped the other arm up over her head. She cheekily placed two star-shaped emojis over her bare chest to censor the image.

The artsy black-and-white photo was snapped by Italian-American photographer Mario Sorrenti for Purple Fashion Magazine. She called the visual artist “legendary” in her caption.

“🙌,” Nigel Barker wrote in the comments.

“Amazing!” someone else applauded. “Thanks for sharing Anne!”

“Babe alert! 😍,” another fan added.

The Russian-American model made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2005 and appeared in 10 consecutive magazine issues. She’s also been featured on the cover of Vogue and Elle

The model is no stranger to artistic photo shoots. Her first year posing for the SI Swimsuit Issue, she took part in a sports-themed body paint feature. She worked with artist Joanne Gair, who expertly painted a Cubs jersey onto the model’s body. Take a look at the incredible results here.
