Mini me: Marina Linchuk with her daughter Anna-Sofia in Miami


Model enjoys time with family In October, ELLE magazine came out with several covers, united by the theme of family. The heroine of one of them was the Belarusian model Marina Linchuk, who herself became a mother a year ago. As it turned out, outside of filming, Marina also devotes all her time to her family: her daughter Anna-Sophia and Brian Casey, who changed her boyfriend status to groom five days ago.

All three are currently living in Miami, from where Marina posts updates in real time: yoga at sunset, swimming in the ocean, walking around the city - the cult of slow living in all its glory. The last update is a joint photo of mom and daughter from the boat. The model and her small replica coordinated the color scheme of the images and looked charming - take a look!


Marina Linchuk is one of the main models of Slavic origin. She was born in 1987 in Minsk. She says that she never wanted to be a model - as a child, like all children, she dreamed of working as a doctor or lawyer. She got into the modeling business when a friend persuaded her to go to the casting at a modeling school for the company. Marina was then accepted, but her friend was not. At first, she worked part-time in Minsk, but then decided to move to Moscow.

There she was advised to go to the IQ Models agency. Indeed, Marina was immediately accepted there, and she began to receive the first offers. Her first show was NinaDonis, which she still remembers today. But Marina did not stay in Moscow - the head of the agency sent her to work in Japan.

In Tokyo, she quickly settled down, spoke Japanese and took the first steps towards becoming a supermodel. Marina moved from Japan to New York. An important event for her career took place there - a photo session with Steven Meisel, which drew the attention of the general public to her. She began receiving offers from Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Donna Karan, Kenneth Cole, Escada, MaxMara, and Gap. Marina has appeared on the covers of Italian, Japanese, Russian and Portuguese Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Numero and Glamor.

In 2008, she became the face of Escada's Moon Sparkle fragrance, and in 2009, Dior's Miss Dior Cherie. The commercial for the latter was directed by Sofia Coppola. Marina took to the catwalk at Givenchy, Gucci, Michael Kors, Alexander McQueen, Paul Smith, Versace, Chanel, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren, John Galliano and Roberto Cavalli. She has performed the role of the Victoria's Secret Angel three times. French Vogue named her one of the 30 best models of the 2000s.
