FULL CLEVELAND: Like mother, like daughter. Anna Cleveland, the 13-year-old daughter of legendary cover girl Pat Cleveland, grew up at least part of the time backstage and in photo studios in Italy, Holland and New York. So it was only a matter of time before she would join the fashion world. The junior high student and dance enthusiast will make her modeling debut in next March’s issue of French Vogue.

"I never really wear designer clothing, so I was very happy to wear them," she said. "I usually wear sporty brands and dance clothes, jeans and T-shirts, bug sweaters, that sort of thing."

She doesn’t have an agency yet, but looks forward to getting her first tear sheets. The Vogue story was recently shot in Paris by Ines Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Van Lamsweerde discovered Anna in family photos she happened upon at the house of Cleveland’s sister-in-law. "I didn’t think it would happen so soon," Cleveland said of her daughter’s modeling. "It was really a fantasy and a fairy tale for her." And the family fashion genes don’t stop there. Anna has an 18-year-old brother Noel, whom his mother describes as "rather tall," recently made his runway debut at a charity event in Amsterdam. "He’s ready, so if anyone’s interested…" she laughed.



BREAD AND BUTTER: Rena Kirdar Sindi, the hostess with the mostest of book parties, will conclude her book launch-a-thon with a Versace bash at the store Dec. 18. Her 150 dinner guests, who will dance the night away in a disco being built on the boutique’s fourth floor, today will receive invitations of china bread-and-butter plates — by Versace, of course.
