I am a strong believer that every woman is beautiful! You just have to awaken your beauty from the inside and build you confidence!
I was born and raised in Russia, where the supply of good looking ladies is never short and it is really hard to stand out. I was no beauty queen growing up, in fact I was very far from being cute. Here is a picture from the wall of academic honor in my school. I was 13. Yes, boys made fun of me, girls did not want to be friends with me, I was very shy and insecure, I cried a lot …
What changed? How did I go from being an ugly ducklin to gracing on the covers of magazines? The answer is by believing in myself, by letting go of my childhood insecurities and following my dreams. As a teenager I spent countless hours in front of the mirror, putting on make up and changing my hair color just to figure out what look would give me most confidence.
Now I am convinced, that if was able to have a modeling career in this life time, most of my readers can too!
I was never one of those girls that wake up naturally beautiful every morning. My “beauty” takes some work. I can’t just roll out of bed and go to a photo shoot, like some of my model friends do. To be completely honest I still don’t think much of the way I look, I just have a few beauty tricks up my sleeve, that bring out that beauty queen confidence in me.
That’s why I am starting this blog by saying to every single one of my readers: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! Hold your head up high, because you are beautiful! Inspire and empower yourself because no one will do it for you! This is where it all starts, right here, right now. You are one of a kind and there is no other unique beauty like yourself in the entire world (unless you have an identical twin). You have to learn to love yourself and this is the very first rule of being and feeling beautiful.

Your images project a rare vitality. Your confidence may allow you to emanate that vitality, but it is a quality unique to you and your work. Whether it be fashion, catalog, glamour, red carpet or candid pictures, your images pop with life and personality. It’s that essence of individuality that makes you such a popular figure.
