THE HEIRESS UP THERE Anisimova in Elle Décor
One might expect a barely legal Russian heiress most famous for sporting skimpy couture and dropping $550,000 on a summer rental in the Hamptons to decorate her first bachelorette pad with giant disco balls, multiple mirrors, and a panel of those fake Andy Warhol self-portraits so popular these days with the moron set. Not the case with Anna Anisimova's pad. Suffice it to say we were shocked to find that, with the help of decorator Noel Jeffrey, Anisimova appears tasteful. Her aesthetic (or Jeffrey's, at any rate) scored her a fawning spread in September's Elle Décor, only pages from vetted socialite Marjorie Gubelmann's uptown pied-a-terre.
Anisimova's $10 million, two-bedroom 75th floor pad at Manhattan's Time Warner Center was inspred by "jewels" and its color palette was based on Anisimova's pale blue eyes. Anisimova's girly aerie is complete with a 350-gallon aquarium she says was inspired by the cinematic masterpiece The Little Mermaid; the requisite Frette linens, and the odd Russian religious icon.
But don't think Anna's spoiled. Allegedly she walks her dogs in Central Park and does the odd shop at the Whole Foods downstairs, which is pretty normal given the fact she could probably buy Whole Foods (or Central Park) with her allowance.
