We all know Sasha Luss, Natalia Vodianova, Sasha Pivovarova, Anne Vyalitsyna and even sisters Pavlov. But in Russia, there is still a lot of young models, which in a few years probably will be as well-known and recognizable, so we picked the 6 most promising, beautiful and talented Russian fashion models.
You're probably familiar with 19-year-old Inga - she starred for Zara lookbooks and stands out against all others: thank to a broad yet childlike smile, lively eyes and plasticity she looks like a baby, but professional portfolio suggests: we should follow for her career, because The Row, Escada, Valentino of Haute Couture, of Dior, Paul Smith is and Dolce & Gabbana - this is not a joke.
Taya does not conquer world catwalks, but in her 15 years she has quite a confident status of muse of the main Russian diseigner, Alexander Terekhov. He shows her in lookbooks, at fashion shows, and the accompanying events. In general, almost the godfather! But that's not all. She has shooting for the Walk of Shame, Peche Peche, Wisdom, and ELLE under her belt. Taya starred in Basta's "Look into my eyes!" music video.
Alisha Nesvat is not the first season compared with Irina Shayk, although they have only the same nationality. But let us hope that these comparisons will be prophetic and will pave the way to a large and bright model future. Alisha only 19 years old, she is incredibly beautiful, and only in this season, she walked the Maison Margiela, Dolce & Gabbana, No.21, Marni, Dior, Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera and Tory Burch runways. Impressive little list, is not it?
Sasha Melnychuk in this list, perhaps, the most experienced and extravagant: she walked the Vetements runway, starred for Balenciaga, posed for Kanye Yeezy and - the cherry on the cake - dated singer Soko (by the way, ex-girlfriend of Kristen Stewart)! Not that this affair speaks about her modeling abilities, but it added fuel to the fire, Sasha became more popular. This season, she walked only two runways, Celine and Koche. But we have to reveal to you a little secret: Sasha not Russian, but Ukrainian, she was born in Kremenchug, but visits Moscow often (and appeared at CUM fashin show last week).
At the beginning of September not only the daughter of Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber, but the 16-year-old Russian model Sofia Martynova debuted at the Calvin Klein fashion show during the New York Fashion Week. Before the first show Sonia only starred for different brands in Tokyo under the wing of a top agency Avant, but Raf Simons opened her way to a great future. After CK she worked with the most luxury brands, and in just one season, she walked the Coach, Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Jil Sander, Dolce & Gabbana, Loewe, Sacai, Giambattista Valli, Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu runways and starred in Marc Jacobs ad campaign. Martynova had been engaged in swimming for 8 years, she is a candidate for master of sports.
And the only guy - 19-year-old skater from Moscow Gennadii Malinin. She started his career from the little-known shows of Russian designers and rose to Givenchy show at Paris Fashion Week. She also starred for KM20 and periodically flashed at Hypebeast.
