Interview: Winner of the month Model Feodora Obraztsova (Russia) (Cover Girl lookbook39)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Feodora. I was born in the most western city of Russia, near the Baltic sea. A year ago, after getting a degree in Polish philology, I moved to Poland, where I work as a teacher of Russian and Polish languages, as well as a barista and sometimes also have commercial photo shootings.
I love changes, traveling and discovering something and someone new. I love life, people, nature and art. I spend my free time playing the guitar and singing, doing yoga and acroyoga, designing and sewing clothes and learning foreign languages.
I guess, I am still looking for my path in this life.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Well, that probably will sound unoriginal, but all of our characteristics make us who we are. So we should accept ourselves the way we are, because that’s what make us truly and uniquely, us.
However, sometimes it’s difficult to fully accept yourself. And to tell the truth, I wish I could tell jokes and become less shy. Though I wouldn’t have changed it by a magic chance, only gradually through the work to make that change. To stay myself, but develop.
How did you start modeling?
It happened quite recently by an accident and a bit of luck. Most likely the starting point were a photo sessions in Kaliningrad with my friends, both named Anna: Anya Yulievna and Anna Anchen. I am very grateful for a chance to work with them and be able to make my very first steps in modeling.
And I will always remember my first photo shooting with Marianna in Cracow and how some of these photos were selected by photovogue of Vogue Italia, which meant a lot for me and pushed me further. From that time I started receiving more and more requests.
I’d also like to seize the opportunity to acknowledge and thank all the people I had a pleasure to work with. I appreciate it a lot.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Shooting process is a pure magic for me. I immensely enjoy trying on new roles, meeting really awesome and talented people, plunging into the atmosphere of creativity and going through various emotions. Each photo shoot is a big and incredible experience.
What is your beauty regimen?
I do yoga and try to eat clean. Also I’m a vegetarian.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
People use to say that I’m like a panda, that brings cosiness into each space.
What are your plans for the future?
I hope in future I will be able to combine my love to designing clothes with modeling and become a teacher of yoga. Maybe open my own language school.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Is it really possible to choose one, when our life is so amazing itself?
There are a lot of great things around us.
For me most of these things happens while traveling. It amazes and astounds every time.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Just go for it.
What do you think of the magazine?
It’s a great opportunity for artists to find new talents and show their own works.
