Anna Anisimova recently appeared in the “The 20 Most Intriguing Billionaire Heiresses” list compiled by Forbes.com.
She is being known as the ‘Paris Hilton of Russia‘ due to the many resemblances between her lifestyle and the hotel heiress’s.
Anna Anisimova, daughter of Russian metals mogul Vassily Anisimov ($2 billion), is the paparazzi’s favorite bi-coastal It Girl of the moment.
Her knockout looks help, but her deal-making really generates the ink. In 2005 she debuted in Manhattan’s clubby real estate scene, shelling out $23 million to buy Diane Von Furstenberg’s downtown Manhattan headquarters.
Most recently, the former model paid $15 million for her 4,000-square-foot pad in the new Time Warner Center.
Anna’s father sent her to America to escape Vladimir Putin’s cold, hard Russia. After all, his first daughter, Anna’s older sister, was killed because the wealthy are targets in their homeland.
She became a celebrity in New York while partying, shopping and occasionally modeling. Now she’s looking to move to Los Angeles where she is developing a line of perfume.
But there’s one clear difference between her and Paris… Anna can do business also!
