What is your morning like?
I wake up between 7-8 a.m. For breakfast, I drink coconut water and herbal teas and like to have fresh fruit with different types of grains like oatmeal or buckwheat. Depending on how much time I have, I can get ready in 20 minutes or it can take a couple hours. 
 
What products do you use everyday?
For my body, I use organic virgin coconut oil and Midnight Romance by Ralph Lauren. I keep the rollerball in my bag wherever I go. On my hair, I use Leonor Greyl Bain Vitalisant B Gentle Shampoo, Masque Fleurs de Jasmine and Tonique Hydratant. For my skin, I use Adjupex Micro Vita ACE and the Prime Renewing Pack from Valmont.  For makeup I only use Chanel mascara and The Multiple Highlight Stick from NARS. On my nails, I love CND SolarOil Nail & Cuticle Conditioner
 
Describe a typical day at work
I get my hair and makeup done and then head to the set and start posing for pictures or video footage. It depends on the project but I typically change and shoot in multiple outfits. We’ll then break for lunch and wrap in eight to 10 hours. 
 
What do you do after work?
I enjoy the company of my friends while having dinner. I also love to read and watch movies. It always depends how the shoot went that day though. Sometimes I finish late and go straight to sleep. I love sleeping! 
 
Are there any new products you are excited about?
I was so excited for the launch of Midnight Romance by Ralph Lauren. It’s such an honor to represent a fragrance that resembles today’s woman. It’s a very sensual and feminine fragrance with an intriguing sexiness. There’s a contradiction of sweet notes like soft pink peony intensified with raw, black vanilla.
 
Are there any interesting steps in your beauty routine?
I do about three to four facials each year which include 10 procedures each time—face peels, masks, plastic facial massages, etc.—at the oldest Institute of Beauty in Moscow, Russia. All of their products are made from natural plant extracts and they have been practicing their techniques for over 85 years. I truly think they are the best. 
 
What would we be surprised to know about you?
I’m very interested in psychology. In fact, I studied the subject in University!
