On the surface Vlada is deceptively doll-like, but look a little closer and this newcomer has an intriguing depth and darkness that eludes to an effortless elegance. From Yekaterinburg, Russia, Vlada, who was discovered by another model (Yana Shmaylova) whilst shopping, has already walked on exclusive for Saint Laurent this past February. That’s a great start to a fledgling career, but Vlada, who’s signed with IMG, has big plans in the works. Still studying, Vlada is focused on balancing school with her ambitions to succeed as a model. Already proving her determination by leaving home for Paris earlier this year, Vlada’s bittersweet beauty packs a punch.
