An up-and-coming artist, Russian-born Natalia tells us about her experiences in various careers – from catwalk modeling to acting.
Natalia, where were you born?
I was born in Ekaterinburg, Russia; it’s a cold part of Russia. I am currently based in Dubai and London
What sort of career, other than modeling, do you do pursue?
I have my finger in many pies - from a catwalk model, to an actress; from a TV presenter and a business woman; to a rising artist, embraced by the contemporary pop art style. I like to think of myself as a woman of many facets, a socialite, living on the overlap of two cultures, two styles, two worlds.
How did you get into modeling?
At the early age of 13, my professional path led me to my first modeling agency and from then on into the world of fashion and beauty. Reaching the finals at a beauty competition of Miss Yekaterinburg and later on, when I was 16, winning the 2002 Miss Siberia pageant, I began to draw the attention of many Russian designers.
