Ms.V: Sparkles in my partner eyes when we make it come true are the biggest inspiration.

Updated: Aug 18


Happy to have you here, Ms.V.

Tell us your story, how did you get started modeling? And most importantly, about your name, how it originates? I bet our readers are intrigued

Hello everyone, Thanks for having me here, And yes, my name is so unusually short

My full name is of Latin origin. It’s elegant and regal, with a lot of mythology and meaning behind it. Due to my diverse family, which literally spanned multiple countries in Eastern Europe and Russia, and my modeling career that started back in my childhood, I have traveled all over the continents including Asia and the Middle East.

People in every country tried to adapt my name to their native language. I felt like my name, my identity was constantly changing.

One day I was reading and this quote by Rachel Ingber stuck with me: A name represents identity, a deep feeling, and holds tremendous significance to its owner. I have made my decision. To make it sweet and simple yet strong to carry my persona, hence V was born


Oh wow, all over the continents? What was the most exotic or fascinating place you've been to? And where is home now?

Oh I love to explore new places, to learn about different cultures and other people's values. Every single country was a little puzzle of who I became

I loved them all starting from little towns in England or France where people keep traditions and live the same lifestyle as their grandparents did, to exotic islands in Thailand or India where people keep it simple and you can think about the highest values for humans and meditate on the nature all day long.

But I'm a city girl, for the last 6 years I've been residing in Manhattan, New York and I love it with all its craziness!

Yet taking a look back, I must admit Dubai UAE was the coolest, hip, place with the most modern vibe, where people live on the edge and never agree for less than over-the-top quality in every single aspect of life.



Tell us more about yourself. What else do you do next to modeling?

Well, I used to have boutiques of authentic women's clothes, lingerie, and accessories.

Now, since I'm doing private modeling, people from all over send me some outfits asking me to pose in them or to dress up and attend some events representing them. I end up owning tons and tons of unique pieces, which I in turn at times agree to sell.

It seems to get very popular, and offers at times flow in nonstop, asking to open an auction to sell my personal items, oh those fans!


Okey. What was the craziest thing your admirers or fans ever did to you?

Oh. men can be very creative! Especially in Dubai where they are not limited with resources.

I remember one guy gave me his fancy sports car (which I later sold and bought a condo, lol) just because he wanted some revealing pictures of me being topless in his car, to be honest, to be barely covered. he paid well.

I returned the key, but his assistant brought it back as the guy told he can't drive it anymore as cannot focus on anything but me posing in the car. He said that the cat became mine the very moment I got into it.


Oh, What a story!

Okey, What do you love most about being a model? And, what do you least enjoy?

Freedom to be yourself and to express your feelings


What is the most challenging in being a model?

as in every single business I guess is to find your strength and then to reinvent yourself without changing yourself.


What fuels your imagination and provides you with inspiration?

People, I love to work with people, work closely, love to learn about my partner (whoever it is, photographer, customer, or boss, lol), and be fully focused on his/her vision, wishes or even needs, let him take me to his inner world and gain his perspective. I get attached, I get connected. I start to explore from there, I start to create.

My methods are broad and my efforts are endless. I do not like easy wins.

Sparkles in my partner's eyes when we make it come true are the biggest inspiration,

I guess it's called love. So I'm always in love!!!


What keeps you excited about life in general?

Constantly learning new things, yet mastering the known ones are the key


Looking back how has modeling experience changed your personal/professional life? Have you grown more comfortable with yourself since you started?

I honestly do not know, I only lived one life, a model life. But yes I think confidence is what you get, although I really like it when once in a while you lose your maturity and get confused and naïve like a kid, I always find it charming


What kind of life would you like to have?

But I already live my best possible life!!!! The only sad part about it is, time flies by so quickly,

and even though I visit the same places over and over, I can't put experiences on repeat.

OMG, see I'm insatiable - constantly looking for something new yet willing to hold the old ones, Haha!


What are the achievements you are proud of most today?

We live in a physical world with its physical values, and I'm pretty much well paid. Also as I'm a perfectionist, I normally get to the top level at anything I'm into, but

you'll be surprised, that most things I'm proud of are not materialistic.

It’s more about trust and reputation. the biggest accomplishment and compliment to me is to see customers coming back with new projects over and over again


Where can our readers keep up with your work and get connected with you?

I keep it pretty intense on Social media, I love to share my experiences, and opinion and always announce my next trips, asking people recommendations about local "must try", "must do" things, or just to join me for performances or even a cup of coffee, So watch out!
