AAM: How and when did you started modeling ?
Anastasia:I started modeling at 15, it’s funny but I decided myself to try modeling… remember it as now – I was watching TV and saw girls at catwalk and looked at my legs (I was always told that my legs start from ears))) and then I told myself I’m just a lamppost or a model. And went to the first model agency I met (it was located near mom’s office), it was “Cat’s” and Natalia Purvin (the director) introduced me with Tigran, a man I’m very thankful to! First time I left for Japan and as many girls in the beginning 2 weeks I cried because I was very far away from home, but after… I liked everything so much that didn’t want to go back home. I was in Japan for 4 months that time, and as I sunburned a lot I’ve got a nickname Tomachi (from tomato)

AAM: Do you remember your first casting? Tell me how it was.
Anastasia:Unfortunately I cant remember my first casting (but remember that I was very shy as I had problems with English. And every time I saw girls with strong book I thought that they are stronger then me… But when I started work a lot I couldn’t believe and didn’t understand why clients chose me?! That time I didn’t have any experience of making shows but as I was told that I need to try, I tried, but didn’t succeed very much( and so I decided it’s not for me, but after I suddenly lost weight and my agency offered me try again in Paris and there Maida and Valentino took me for their shows – everything seemed to be a dream… the same feeling of a dream was with shows, that I opened in NY , famous designers!I was shocked and kept thinking…why they took me? yes, I was quite pessimistic :(

AAM: How would you describe yourself ?
Anastasia:No, you’d better ask my friends) But from myself I can say that I will never refuse to help.


AAM: What are in your opinion the best things in the modeling world ?
Anastasia:To have a chance to travel and sometimes photosessions are in such places that I wouldn’t find myself! And I’m thankful to modeling that I can meet such interesting people!

AAM: Please tell us what the last job has left you have the greatest impression?
Anastasia:An Oyster magazine with Cameron Smith pic are cool and we had so much fun!



AAM: You did many fashion shows. Are you still nervous before the show starts ? And how do you feel when you walk on the runway ?
Anastasia:I’m very nervous when I open and close, but usually I’m calm and just enjoy music and beautiful clothes on me.

AAM: Are there any models that inspire you ?
Anastasia:Sasha Pivovarova and Daria Werbowy

AAM: What are your favorite sports, how much do you exercise and how do you manage your diet to stay in shape?
Anastasia:Yoga (bikram and kundalini), I love group classes of aerobics! Like Russian baths or sauna . Yes I keep diet, but I only don’t eat late, don’t eat fried food, salted and once a week try to make a kefir (yogurt) fasting day .

Anastasia:Oh, 10 years? I don’t know, I would like to be a TV journalist, will see don’t want to plan)
