Oddly beautiful Olya hails from Smolensk in South Western Russia. This aspiring artist/designer has beautiful feline features that are immediately captivating. Her idiosyncratic looks might be a little unusual, but Olya has range – this isn’t a girl who can only work the avant-garde editorials and catwalks. As yet unsigned outside of Russia, Olya will be snapped up for sure.

    I don’t think she’s odd at all. In fact, she screams PRADA. Reminds me of tetyana melnychuk a bit.

    i have a love hate relationship with this… fashion – the objectification of humanity – the east now wide open for exploitation etc – of the individual in all its glory – and the beauty of portraiture..

    Absolutely superb. IF she doesn’t get around shows and makes it, then IDK what the heck is wrong with the industry.

    Can someone say Laura Stone three times!!!!!!

    Her look is interesting, give her a striking hairstyle and she’ll be golden. Her look isn’t new, but I disagree with the statement that it’s boring.
    She has a lot of editorial potential IMO
