The only advice I can give to all the people out there watching Instagram accounts..it is not a real representation of anyones life.
Give us a background about how you started modeling and how the journey has been like till now?
To be honest, I could never imagine myself competing in beauty pageants, all the more taking world titles and traveling overseas representing both of my home countries – Russia and Australia.
It all started with a local Australian competition where I placed 2nd Runner up, then the pageantry world opened up its doors for me and escalated my career quite quickly. I was crowned as Miss Russia Australia in 2017; 1st Runner Up at World Finals in China 2018; Miss Swimwear Model of the Year Australia, 2019; Latest crown and title was taken in December 2020 as Miss Multiverse at the World Finals held in the Dominican Republic. All these pageants contributed to my successful modeling career and gave me a great platform to speak up, educate others, and share my experience with so many people out there.

If not a model, what profession would you have been into?
I love learning and believe that ongoing education is the key to personal success so I make sure I keep myself busy at all times. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political and Social Sciences majoring in Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney. I’ve completed Certificates 3 &4 in Fitness – I’m a qualified Master Trainer and Nutritionist adviser. I also finished music school, specializing in piano.
I was a Human Resources Manager for about 6 years and recently decided to obtain a Real Estate Licence and started working in Real Estate. I love exploring and obtaining new skills, getting myself out of my comfort zone, and just absorbing as much knowledge and experience as possible.
I have also been running my Dance & Entertainment company since 2018 – I crave Dance & entertainment where I choreograph dance shows, do event planning, and organize entertainment and staff for different occasions.
My ultimate dream and something that I am working towards are to expand my business and develop ultimate transformation programs for women where I can teach them so many things that would help them to be the best version of themselves – starting from training, beauty tips, personal presentation, catwalk practice, positive mindset, mental and physical wellness that becomes a lifestyle rather than something they have to do as a part of a short-term program.
These pageants contributed to my successful modeling career and gave me a great platform to speak up, educate others, and share my experience with so many people out there.
What was the feeling like when you became Miss Multiverse 2020, and what’s the first thing you did the minute after?
Taking the World Title made me feel that all my hard work and time contributed to it finally paid off. It takes time to be in the right mental, emotional mindset, and physical shape to be able to compete in a highly competitive environment.
I did not win every single pageant I took part in, however, I took a lesson from each competition, reflected on how I performed, and worked towards doing a better job next time. The biggest and most important part about competing in these pageants and most situations in life is to never compare yourself with others. Everyone is at different stages of their life and it takes the right place, time, hard work, patience, and a bit of luck to get to the pace you are aiming for! – You don’t know at what stage of life the other person, so just focus on yourself because there’s plenty of success out there for those who work hard for it and truly want it.

You are also amongst a few influential creators on Instagram, what’s the most amusing part of being an influencer? Also, give one piece of advice to all budding social media influencers?
The only advice I can give to all the people out there watching Instagram accounts..it is not a real representation of anyone’s life. So don’t go too hard on yourself and use it purely for doing something you love as this is the only way to win your audience.
Every girl craves the bold and beautiful features you own, spill your skincare/beauty secret?
Oh, I can tell you straight away – my answer is quite a boring one! My beauty secret is pure discipline and I stick to it and never let go! I don’t go out often, I don’t consume alcohol, I never tried smoking, I don’t overeat during the festive seasons and I train, do sauna sessions, massage, stretching, skincare routine every morning and night and there’s no excuse not to do it every single day. This is the lifestyle I chose – I feel great about it as I know the body pays you back when you treat it well – this is the love you give to your body and health. Life is too short not to love yourself this way!

Your style quotient is to die for, name some luxury fashion brands you swear by?
I don’t follow brands and I don’t fall for luxury fashion brands and the latest collections. If there’s something that I love – I will buy it but this does not necessarily mean it will be purchased from a famous luxury brand. The person makes the cloth looks good, so don’t be fooled and just buy for the sake of current fashion.
Most of the time the dress that I buy for $60 from online shopping gets most people’s attention and they would hunt me down to know where I get it from, so find your style and rock in it girl!

Describe your basic go-to outfit?
I am all in for comfortable outfits so out of my office work, dance gigs, and modeling jobs – you will see me in the coolest sportswear sets. I think the most amount of money goes towards my sports shoes and tracksuits.
One Fun fashion tip for our readers?
Oh Definitely got one! When you just got your make-up done for the shoot. If you decide to cry for any reason, please bend over and have your face parallel to the floor so the tears drop straight to the ground without touching your face rather than ruining the work of art that your makeup artist just created!

Lastly, give us some deets about your upcoming projects?
After taking the world title as Miss Multiverse 2020, I got offered to become an Executive Producer and a National Director of TV Reality Show/ Beauty Pageant – Miss Multiverse 2022 – Australian edition. In 2021 My team and I traveled across different states of Australia to run face-to-face casting calls to find the best talents in the country who will be representing Australia on the International stage in the Dominican Republic in 2022 once the National finals take place earlier next year. This Pageant is not an ordinary modeling contest and will be featuring the most multi-faceted models who will be tested to their maximal potential in intellectual tasks, sports, social, charity activities, sense of fashion, modeling skills, and overall presentation. This all will be filmed in the format of a TV Reality Show where models will be on cameras 24/7 that will unfold to the audience on what is going on behind the scenes of pageantry life, shoots, and daily struggles that girls will be facing.
