What Does This Russian Model Have in Common with Our Ladies?

9. October 2009 by Marie 0 Comments

It’s no secret to our members that Russian women are among the world’s most beautiful! But many new members are under the misconception that our Russian and Ukrainian ladies are professional models and not “real” women looking for lifetime love. Nothing could be further from the truth!


Most of our ladies practice other professions. They are teachers, scientists, engineers and salespeople, as well as students. They are the perfect mix of beauty and brains, thanks to the importance of art, history and culture impressed upon them in childhood (OK, good genes help, too).


Supermodel Sasha Pivovarova is no exception. At 23, she is being touted as the “Russian Kate Moss.” 


As a little girl in Moscow, she dreamed of becoming an artist. Although clearly stunning, she never thought about modeling. That changed in 2005, when a photographer friend snapped some shots and sent them to modeling super agency IMG. Almost overnight, Pivovarova went from bookworm to covergirl. Today, she is a favorite of Miuccia Prada, Gucci, Chanel, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Givenchy, Hermes, Victor & Rolf, Dolce & Gabanna, Balenciaga and many others. You can see her face on the covers and pages of all international editions of Vogue as well as W, L'Officiel, Harper's Bazaar, V Magazine, POP and Numéro. She is also the face of Armani cosmetics.


Despite living the glamorous life in New York City and Paris, Pivovarova still has the typical Russian girl’s nostalgia for home and family. No matter where an assignment takes her, “Moscow is much closer to my heart,” she tells the Russian daily newspaper Pravda. “I spent my childhood there, my spirit and life is in Moscow.”


Like the majority of the Russian brides you will meet on our Web site, Pivovarova combines incredible beauty with brains. The product of an intellectual family, she visited art exhibitions from an early age, listened to classical music, read books, and was inspired by romantic stories, beautiful landscapes and still life paintings.


The model tells Pravda that she still uses every free minute to visit a museum and learn about the culture of the places she goes. She hopes to use her newfound fortune to open an art gallery – and get her graduate degree.


The struggling art student has become a true work of art.
