Interview: Model Polina Fedorova (Italy)


Can you tell us a little about you?

Hi there! I’ve just celebrated my 29th birthday, what a journey! So it’s a good chance to look back and see what I’ve done till now.

First, I’m a horse riding coach for the last 7 years. As long as I remember I was always around horses.. more than 20 years. So my main job now is my passion. Im grateful to have a chance and show others the equestrian world. Im not just teaching how to ride but want to explain how to be friends with horses and how to find this special connection.

This passion also lead me to modeling. And almost for 7 years it’s my second passion. I’m working around the world, now mostly in Italy.

And it’s an amazing world, full of interesting people and projects. I actually know this world also from the other side, cause I was working as a makeup artist, permanent makeup and all this beauty routine. Im in love with everything I do, but only because I can choose what to do.

Few years ago I moved to Italy. Alone. It was the craziest decision I’ve ever made. But the best at the same time, that’s the perfect chance to start the new life. I have two bachelor’s degrees in Russia, and now I’m doing Masters in Rome. I speak two foreign languages ​​fluently (Italian&English). The immediate goal is to arrange my life in Italy and realize myself as a coach and as a model. Well, since you're reading this interview, I'm doing pretty well :)


If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

I think if I would have a possibility to change only one thing about myself.. well.. I want to be more courageous and think less :) because we have only one chance to create our perfect life. So yes, I want to be more brave than I am now and take all the chances that life is giving me!


How did you start modelling?

I’ve start modeling almost 7 years ago. I’ve never thought that I’m good enough to be a model. It was crazy even to think about that. But my passion for horses led me straight to the camera. I’ve started as an equestrian model, because it was difficult to find someone who can pose with horses. I didn’t notice that from that moment I accepted myself. It was so natural. After the first shooting I had a lot of offers and it became my favorite routine and one of the best parts of my life :)


What do you think of the work as a model?

I’m pretty sure that modeling is not just a job. Yes, its not that simple as you may think, but its another world. It’s a very interesting process, to explore your personality, to create something special, to show people all around the world that the beauty is different, but every time is amazing. Once you feel comfortable in front of the camera, you are enjoying the process. But not just that. You start to accept yourself!

That is the most beautiful part


What is your beauty regimen?

Oh, i love beauty routine! I start and finish my day with a skin care, using my favorite products. In every day life I’m not using makeup, just a bit. And after shootings I prefer to give my skin a few days rest. Also massage, sport,vitamins and meditations

And do not forget about your food. I’m not following the diet, I can eat everything that I want, that is why I don’t need special days in a week to eat everything that I want, so I don’t stress my body. Healthy breakfast, lunch and aperol spritz in the evening (remember, I live in Italy, you can’t avoid that). Not every day, by the way :)


What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I don’t like to compare myself with the others. I don’t think that I’m better or worth in something, because we are all different, and we need different qualities.

I’m proud that I’m kind, creative and talented. I’m always trying to get new skills and knowledge. A lot of people say that I’m wise and thoughtful, so a lot of my friends are asking for advice and I’m always there for them.

Need to admit that my biggest achievement is the faith in my dreams (believe in myself in the other words).


What are your plans for the future?

My plans for the future.. good question. I want to create something on my own. Im still figuring out what exactly it would be. But I hope to find out soon.

And for sure I want to have family and kids. I’m the one who wants to be both : mother/wife and business lady. So I’ll keep you posted if it’s gonna work :)

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

If we are talking about work.. I spent two years before the pandemic working with horses around the world. Our team was searching the best horses in the most beautiful places. After that we were organized tours for equestrians like us. It was an amazing experience. I had a chance to work in the best team and met incredible people. We’ve organized tours in Spain, Bali, Portugal and Switzerland. Where I also worked as a model. Hope that soon we can restart again!


Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?

My advice: do not be afraid! Try! When one door is closed, there is always another one!

And remember, that we are all beautiful and we are all different. Do not let others convince you.


What do you think of the magazine?

As for me, this magazine is doing a great job. You help others to understand that model is not just a picture. We are all normal people, with our experience and fears. I’m honored to be here, and I hope that my story will help someone. At least you can see the other side of cover :)
