Hi Ksenia it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Hello, thank you very much for having me on your platform!
My name is Ksenia, I was born in the small village in URAL region of Russia. When I was 16 years old, I left my parent’s place and started my own life in Ekaterinburg, then I became a model and moved to Moscow.
Now I’m an international model working with the best agencies all over the world and fashion designer of handmade clothing brand ERROR3. Im happy to live my life and I wouldn’t change anything if even I could)
When did you start modeling?
Well… I started to do modeling six years ago. Actually I have never planned to be a model, it accidentally happened when my first agent met me in a club, funny but it’s true. Few months later I did some tests, magazines and with my first pics, I flew to Istanbul for my first trip ever. Then it became my profession and I started to fly to different parts of the world every 2-3 months.
Do you have a beauty regime to looking so fabulous?
Thank you for the compliment!
Been a model you have to take care of yourself a lot, but I never do something crazy. I don’t have any diet or special food ration, but if I have a chance I regularly go to the gym or work out at home at least 2 times a week for 30 minutes. About skin and hair care, it’s more complicated because we do have a lot of problems with both always in make-up and hairstyles from the shootings. I normally go to a salon to do a procedure “Label Cosmetics Happiest” for the hair. And I am regularly using face creams daily and nightly, plus the vitamins zinc and calcium.
Which is your most favorite photoshoot experience?
I do have a lot of very nice shooting experience, but it depends on what we are talking about, because sometimes you are satisfied from the result and the pics, or you are enjoying the process and not even sure that you will use this material.
My favorite pics is from Australia by Josephine Clough. But my favorite job experience was in Italy when we were shooting Natuzzi campaign (furniture brand). We had a trip for five days in south of Italy, five guys from different countries (models), we were changing the locations twice a day, huge funny team (almost 100 people), the best accommodations and diners! And the views we had were just incredibly beautiful!!!
Have you had a funny photoshoot experience before?
I think the funniest thing I had was when I was bitten by a scorpion in Turkey while shooting, it was not funny that time at all, but now when I tell this story to someone I am always laughing. Because I do always have bad luck with the weather, directions, flights, visas… always, always and always. But it’s normal. Everyone who travels a lot has the same things, but to be bitten by scorpion is not something everyone has ever experienced.
If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where will it be?
I have been in many countries already, but I still have few places that I am dreaming to visit. I want a to go to Cape Town in South Africa and Brazil, Rio De Janeiro. I would love to see the nature and culture of this places, and I think it’s great for modeling as well.
Where do you usually like to party?
I’m not a party girl, but sometimes I like to have fun with my friends in the clubs, special events, open airs or music festivals.
I would like to go at least once to “Burning man” just to enjoy the atmosphere and to see all the outfits and the showpieces!
Which is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Well, I do have a lot of funny stories about the guys who tried to know me. But most of the times it’s just an annoying thing.
Once I was getting flowers every day for few weeks and not even sure who that was… no names, no signatures on deliveries. Another time I got a silver cross from the guy who saw me for two hours in his life and said that he loved me. As soon he understood there is no chance for him, he asked for his gift back ahaha.
Few times I’ve got offers from strangers to get married.
Model life haha!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Ksenia. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy is sexy, hot, beautiful, fit. But not always people can be beautiful and sexy, beauty is in the soul, in the eyes, in the manners. Sexy is part of beauty.
