I haven't planned to be a model,
00:06
it only just happened by pure chance.
00:08
I went to beauty school with my sister and I got discovered.
00:11
Pretty late, I was discovered
00:14
when I was
00:16
20, 21.
00:17
I didn't speak English really well, not that I do now,
00:21
it's a little bit better (laughs) but not so perfect.
00:24
I went to Paris and I started to learn English
00:27
and take my first pictures for my portfolio.
00:30
It was a pretty hard time, you know.
00:33
I started my career as a swimsuit model
00:36
and my first big breakout in,
00:39
in America
00:40
was 2007 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
00:44
And I've done it for 10 years
00:47
and 2011 I was on the cover,
00:49
first Russian model to be on the cover
00:50
of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
00:52
So that was my first big job in America
00:56
to be a Sports Illustrated swimsuit girl.
01:00
I'm Russian so I've never imagined that I would
01:02
be with a swimsuit, you know,
01:05
probably like coats and warm clothes for me
01:08
sounds a little better.
01:10
Who is royal to me in fashion
01:13
is definitely Riccardo Tisci.
01:15
He is not only an amazing designer
01:17
he's an amazing funny person.
01:19
A model, I don't know, I mean I love models from Lindy's
01:23
like Naomi, Cindy, Christie,
01:27
those sexy beautiful girls
01:30
and they just walk down the street
01:32
and all the guys look at them.
01:34
So that's what I like (laughs).
01:36
A guy crush?
01:37
Steven Seagal because he's like really,
01:40
he's really good at fighting and I think it's super sexy.
01:43
So maybe him, I dunno.
01:45
Every movie makes me cry when I'm in the airplane.
01:49
I dunno maybe you feel lonely up in the air or something.
01:52
Only one movie that didn't make me
01:54
cry lately it was Magic Mike.
01:56
I wasn't crying but a guy who was sitting next to me
01:59
he couldn't believe I was watching this movie.
02:02
Especially the dance part I was really into it
02:05
and he, he looked at me like I'm a Russian weirdo.
02:09
But
02:10
yeah.
02:11
[Interviewer] I don't think so.
