Such an honor to have a gorgeous and talented beauty on our cover! We’re curious to know how your journey has been as one of the most respected models in your industry? Hello everyone! I am so happy to be supported. There is an appropriate time for all things in life. What made me the model, so how I am today? Hard work, attitude, experience, ambition, purpose, perseverance. Love for myself. Confidence is key. No one helped me or gave me a hand, donated money or bought a golden castle for me. I achieved everything with my own hands. That’s why I can be proud of myself today. My goal as a role model is to bring beauty, peace and love to society. Only if you have to respect others, you can be respected too.
Given your obvious stunning good looks and striking features, tell us a bit about where you’re from and some background? I have a magnificent life. Born in Baltic country, into a family who love me very much, I have had a wonderful childhood. I studied: art, medicine, law. I traveled the world. I have stayed and have been living in Switzerland for over 10 years now. I am not married yet, so I am ready to meet my dream prince!. I believe in miracles – underneath it all… I am open, honest, smart and straightforward person. One of the most beautiful people you have ever met in your life, in all ways. Beautiful – inside and out. I am well-educated and impress people with my honesty. I have the greatest attributes a person can have.
Tell us something surprising about you? Here I am! Today I am your surprise! All other things which I create around me are the surprise! We can do something wonderful always.
What inspired your move to Switzerland? Unfortunately, this is not a work of art that requires inspiration. Because this is real life and its situations. Completely without any preconceptions or individual interpretations of the country’s culture, politics, religion. Things like security, structure, system, flexibility are important. I am also and love to be independent (as is Switzerland). But I can never know how fate will turn and where will be my other place of residence. C’est la vie!
What are some of the things you like to do, behind the cameras and all the glitz and glamour? “If someone’s dumb enough to offer me a million dollars to make a picture, I’m certainly not dumb to turn it down.” Elizabeth on the set of “Cleopatra”. I like to have fun. I like to feel part of the team, together creating beauty and art. Enjoy the charm and elegance of a creative process that captures in seconds over a period of time. “For me, acting is not an all-consuming thing, except for the moment when I am actually doing it.” William Holden.
If we were to try and sweep you right off your feet, what are some of the things you look for in an ideal partner? Well, real billions in real account, houses, villa, yacht, jet. Smart, elegant, intelligent, educated, sociable. To be: helpful, thankful, respectful, humourful. Real: character, heart and heat. You have to offer secure, not only financially but also emotionally. I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.
We hear you’re also an artist, tell us a bit more about your work? Life creation. Self-growth and improvement. Different art trends. Couple of them, just like for example: As a model with beauty, the individuality of elegance. As a science, psychology working with people. As a photographer, capture moments and people. “I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.” Kafka!
You’re a seemingly talented lady, what are some, if any, of your hidden talents not many people know about? Thank you! It already is: either you have it or you don’t. Not halfway. If you are an icon, an idol, a mentor, an authority – you are, or you are not. This you can not hide. It doesn’t matter if you are a small or a big star. What matters is what you do and why? However, even stars cannot shine uniformly to all people.
What makes you feel sexy? “I don’t`mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it.” Marilyn Monroe. First big love for myself. Inner peace with myself. Naturalness and certainty. Feel good in my body. Top form. Work on it. Style, elegance, upliftment, charisma perfectly enveloping sexual nudity. My own inlying sexuality, it’s like an inaccessible grandeur and a distinctive mark of my brand. Famous designer clothes, the best plastic surgery, cheap luxury and impudent will not make you sexy – if you are inside empty.
What are some of the things you love to do when nobody is watching? It’s my privacy and individuality. Some other secrets. Character, respect, attitude towards yourself and others – makes you interesting, strong, different. Vanity, pride, aggression, arrogance, tatty publishing of everything for everyone – makes you uninteresting and without values.
What can we expect from you this year, any major plans and exciting things we can look forward to from you? I live today and now. After all, no matter how well you plan everything, it won’t be the case anyway. So I better accept life the way it presents, with all the surprises. I want to have loved and to be loved. “My definition of love is being full. Complete. It makes everything lighter. Beauty is something you see. Love is something you feel.” Sharon Tate. What I want out of life is happiness!
It has been a true pleasure getting to know you! Any final words for our readers out there? Hello Lovelies, I am glad that you see me! My “hello” will sound in your mind all of your life – the breathless warmth of the emphasis, my well-deep eyes turn up toward you and my face radiantly crinkle in a wonderful girlish smile. Thank you Playboy for the collaboration. Happy to be a part of your community!
