Beauty Ruslana Korshunova


Ruslana KorshunovaOne of the most beautiful women ever was Ruslana Korshunova. I say was because at the age of 20 she was found dead from what was ruled to be a suicide. It is almost a year to her death now and I have not yet seen a model more beautiful to take her place under the hot lights of the European catwalks.

Ruslana was born in Alma-Ata, Kazakh SSR, and was technically Russian. Ruslana’s father, Sergey Korshunov, died in 1992 when she was 6 and she lived with her mother Valentina and brother Ruslan, guess the parents loved that name.

In 2003, an asian magazine ran a story about a German club that Ruslana was in. In a crazy “hollywood dream” type scenario, her picture was seen by Debbie Jones of Models 1. Ruslana was tracked down and her modeling carreer and maybe downfall began. Any young girl dreams of something like that happening to them, it happened to Ruslana at the age of 15.

After her “discovery” Ruslana travelled the world and modeled for the top designers and magazines. Ruslana was nicknamed the Russian Rapunzel, Ruslana had extremely long, almost knee length hair.

Ruslana Korshunova was represented by IMG, Marilyn, Beatrice, Traffic Models and other agents in her short career.

British Vogue called Ruslana as “a face to be excited about” . Ruslana Korshunova modeled for many including covers for French Elle as well as the Polish and Russian versions of Vogue. Ruslana worked for Clarins, Ghost, Girbaud, Blugirl by Blumarine, Moschino, Old England, Pantene, Kenzo, Marithé & François, Max Studio, and Vera Wang. Ruslana’s career was on the rise and at the age of 20 she was only beginning. Ruslana also scored a gig in a perfume commercial for Nina by Nina RicciPosted by Picasa
