Happy to have you feature on Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? I started as a young teen. In the Russian federation. I had a very nice figure. And height. After one of my gymnastics matches, I got an invite to a photoshoot. I was shocked. And excited. It was all uphill from then on. I feel blessed.
What are some of your best career highlights so far? Omg. Every magazine for me was a blessing and a highlight. I loved posing for European playmate centerfold. I was thrilled to be featured in Ellements magazine and Eclair magazine just recently. However, hands down, Vogue Magazine has been my most unexpected surprise.
Social media is a very powerful tool, given your massive following, what are some of the challenges you face when it comes to marketing your brand and maintaining a solid following? I believe the most important is being genuine and interactive. To maintain the following I stay very dynamic on all platforms. Always showing the most exciting highlights of my life. Places I visit. Interesting goods I experiment with. However. I am also not afraid to show my more challenging days. Or talk about some struggles. We are all Humans. The most difficult challenge is complying with platforms rules. Lol. I have to watch out. My swimsuit or cleavage is not too much for moderators. Haha.
Can you give us a breakdown of a typical day in the life of a glamourous model on set? Well. On arrival, you will be whisked away to hair and make-up. Then you sit still to allow stylists and the artists to create their vision. I have a selection of poses ready but follow the photographer’s lead and the brand’s concept for the shoot. I try to stretch in between sets. And most important hydrate and eat a balanced diet as Day can be long and exhausting because I always thrive to deliver.
What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? I think one misconception people have is that cliche vision that all monks starve to death. Absolutely not! With a dietitian’s advice and consistent daily workout regime, with no doubt, we can have curves abs, strong glutes, and toned legs! One more misconception is that our lives are full of amazing outfits and daily beauty maintenance. Those are no doubt blessings. But let’s not forget all the casting hassles, all the amazing travel that at times takes lots of time away from family. The hotel room stays over your own cozy bed. But I love it. And would not change it for the world.
Now we know there are some pretty perks that come with being a beautiful woman, what would say are your favorite ones? My one favorite is people Assume you live a healthier lifestyle. Even though I do have my Netflix and junk food night lol. I haven’t discovered more perks yet. But on a serious note, if I could apply my looks, I would like to take change the world into a kinder place.
Given that you’re a stunning woman who undoubtedly gets a lot of attention, what are some of the nicest things men have done to try and get your attention? Omg. Too many. Getting a woman’s attention is like climbing the Mountain of Everest. Some drop jokes all night, while some buy flowers. I remember one guy sent me a little cute wallet by Chanel and when I opened it up, there was his picture inside…
It’s always the smallest things that count
What makes you feel absolutely sexy? Red lipstick and great pair of heels of course. Needless to say. Stealing from Marilyn Monroe: wearing Chanel number 5 to bed. Haha.
3 things that you can’t go a day without? A phone call to my mom is a must. Applying SPF on my full body. And dancing to my favorite song in the mirrors. Positive vibes only.
Anything exciting we should be on the lookout for coming through this year from you? Omg. So many exciting projects. I have just had an out-of-this-world shoot in Istanbul with signals and astonished Bosporus view, it’s not even published yet. Then a fitness shoot coming. With a sexy twist to it of course, Also, shoot in Dubai with all mind-blowing landscapes and incredible interiors done for Expo20 and an amazing body painting shoot in Miami… So, Watch out. Fun projects are coming up.
