Anja Rubik got engaged to her model boyfriend, Sasha Knezevic, over the holidays. A lethal pairing of hotness, Rubik reveals in an excellent interview on Frockwriter that Real People exist behind their perfect veneers.

Apparently he was carrying the ring around for a while. And that day we fought all the day long. We were preparing the whole house for Christmas and there were all these things to be done and I had to cook and I had to do this and that and the Christmas decorations… I couldn’t find the ones I liked. So it was totally dramatic the whole day. I thought, ‘I’m going to kill him’. I was like, ‘I think this was my last Christmas ever’ [with him]. And he said ‘I picked this day on purpose, because although we have our fights, we’ve been together and ra ra ra ...’ And he’s right.

The engagement capped off a wonderful year for Anja, one highlight of which career-wise for her was shooting the Pirelli calendar with Karl Lagerfeld (she also said she plans to walk in only his couture show this fall). She says that she turned down the previous calendar shot by Terry Richardson.
