If you had three wishes, what would they be?
I would just ask for one wish: for all people to be kind. I think this would solve a lot of the problems that we have in the world nowadays.
If you could personally witness any event in history, what would it be?
I love to see movies that taking place in the 40s-50s, I just love the hairstyles and clothing! I wouldn’t mind going back in time and to live in that era for a second!
What is something that you have never done that you want to do?
What’s the most regrettable beauty trend you’ve ever tried?
I’m always been careful with beauty trends but my mom made me a victim of a beauty trend once when I was young. Straight bangs were the thing in Russia so my mom cut mine herself. It was horrible.
If you could hear one song performed live by any musician what would it be?
“I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston. Or any song by her. Her voice is just so powerful.
What’s something people wouldn’t know about you?
I’m a control freak -- everything has to be under control. It’s so challenging sometimes to let go and not control things you shouldn’t or can’t.
In a world full of influencers, who influences you most?
If we’re talking about Instagram, I love following accounts of healthy food or fitness or motherhood.

Definitely my family. I want to set a good example for my daughter to be a good mother, wife, friend and independent woman.
Do you have a self-care ritual or a creative pursuit?
A good workout in the morning is my therapy.
What’s the worst holiday gift you ever received?
Christmas socks. Who wears them anyway?

Pizza, chocolate, Ice cream
Looking back, what advice would you give to your 14-year-old self?
To be more confident and never forget to take care of yourself and your health first. I tortured myself with so many unhealthy diets just to fit in the “standard” of the modeling industry, I really regret not being more kind to myself.
