1. At what age did you decide to start modeling?
Even as a teenager, I dreamed of something creative, but I had a vague idea of what exactly I wanted to do. But I knew exactly what I did not want to do: I was from a family of famous scientists who were at the origins of space exploration, and I studied in physics – and this was not my life. I didn't see myself in science, even in a technical University, but I studied hard because I knew how important it was for my parents. I was allowed to do vocals and dance and that was my outlet. I read a lot, listened to radio programs about America, dreamed of traveling. In high school, I realized that I would go home and be a model.
2. What is the most interesting thing about this work for you?
Try on different images. This is partly theater. That is why, when the age of the model ends, many girls try themselves in the cinema or on stage.
3. What do you consider your main trump card?
As a model, I am very much appreciated for the win-win image of a pretty blonde. This is a classic for all times, which does not go out of fashion. In addition, as a child, I was seriously interested in choreography and now I continue to study, and this is posture, plastic, emancipation, which is very important for the model.
4. How do you feel about yourself?
Critically, rigorously, with a sense of humor.
5. As one of the most desirable women in the fashion world, how would you define beauty?
To be beautiful today, when cosmetics, salon procedures and other "things" are so available, is a matter of desire. And to be truly feminine, charming, attractive and desirable is already an art. A woman may have an average appearance from birth, but this does not detract from her chances of becoming what the French say "Charmant". It is important to be natural and not imitate anyone! That's what beauty is to me.
6. Work on your first music album. How would you describe this project?
I have long been interested in art at the intersection of music, photography and performance. At the same time, I consider social networks as a platform for creativity, because today there are incredibly many opportunities to organize various projects. At school, I was serious about vocals, so when I got the opportunity, I started recording in the Studio. I will not disclose any details, but I will soon present the album to the General public.
7. Who inspired you to try your hand at music?
Oh, definitely Madonna, who has made a cult out of her image and has been profiting from it for many decades. However, the fact that she so skillfully uses personal charisma and honed by many professionals a beautiful picture of herself, does not beg for her talent.
8. Have you also tried your hand at movies? Is this just an experiment or are you serious about retraining?
I am interested in developing in cinema, but it is the appearance that "feeds" me as a model that does me a disservice here. It is almost impossible to get a character role, but I believe that everything is still ahead. I still have a slight accent, but I'm working on getting rid of it.
9. Which actor would you like to invite for the role of a movie partner?
I never thought about it. I, of course, have my "favorites" among male actors, but I can not project them on the set next to me. Conditions are important here. For example, I will be offered a film where I will have a scene with Mashkov. I can't imagine it, even though I love it. It all depends on the context. But speaking of dreams in movies, I would rather like certain genres, roles, and Directors. Undoubtedly, it would be a great success to participate in a historical film or in the film adaptation of some classic Russian work.
10. What masculine qualities do you value most?
Literacy, optimism, loyalty.
