    I’M A FAN! First of all, can’t believe how Russia keeps producing this otherworldly creatures! Second, I’m really digging her personality, I mean, from The Doors and Nina Simone to Jean Paul Sartre, she seems so interesting.
    I hope she does great. I’m already looking forward see more from her-

  • Love, Love, LOVE!
    Perfect pout!

  • I wanna see her tests ;) but, anyway, what a lips! – My blog about New Faces ;)

  • Stunning! The combination of her luscious lips and ice blue eyes is killer.

  • what a beautiful, great new face, very intelligent and cultured, sounds very cool… leather is totally un-necessary however…

  • Pretty face.

  • She did some shows this season and she looked pretty well; and I personally liked the fact she did for example @ Jeremy Scott and Jo No Fui, two shows / collections completely different… PS but my “fav Zakharova” is absolutely Svetlana… I’m talking about the model, not the dancer! hehe :)

  • Yasmin

    It’s amazing that so many russians have these piercing, clear light blue eyes… <3
    she's cute but I doubt that she's 5´10

  • M

    she’s like olga s! and she has great taste in music.

  • She has a good taste of music. Fuck Muse.
    But I think she’s a little bit boring, that’s what I see in the photos.

  • Nicola

    What’s her age??

  • Brooke

    She’s so naturally beautiful it’s almost ridiculous. Her face is so haunting & perfect. My self-esteem just took a hard blow!

  • CarolG

  • Natalia’s features are stunning. But I think it is her personality that penetrates through the lens and exudes a fantastic appeal.

  • Denis Tutov

    ZAHAROVA!!!! EEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!))

  • Chris

    I can believe she’s from Siberia. I was in Siberia a few years ago and was astounded how many absolutely stunningly beautiful women were there. Natalia and I love the same rock bands. We’d probably get along well!

  • Shelton

    Oh my goodness, she is so pretty! I think she just needs to age a little bit more, she looks a bit too young for my tastes.
