Anastasia Kuznetsova (born in 1992) is a Russian model who walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on November 19, 2009 at the Lexington Armory in New York City.. Her style can be described as "earthy." While Anastasia is not well known in the States, she has had global success and is a model on the rise with a distinctive Russian look.
Not a lot is known about Anastasia's background. She signed with Next in 2007, and debuted in February 2008. Anastasia quickly got work, and opened the fall Tao show in Paris.
In some ways, Anastasia looks as though she just stepped out of a classical, medieval painting. One can imagine her as Renaissance princess, with ruffles around her neck and a stern, emotionless glance. However, Anastasia also can look quite modern.
Anastasia walked in the fall Valentino couture show in Paris in January 2009.
Anastasia does not have as many top covers as some of the other girls, but she gets them all around the world:
- Germany: 'Cocoon' - July 2013
- Japan: 'Spur' - March 2011
Anastasia has worked steadily since her debut. She has walked spring couture shows for Chanel, Valentino and Elle Saab in Paris.
Kuznetsova also was in the Spring/Summer 2010 campaign for Topshop. She walked in the Lakme Fashion Week's Winter Festive Show in Mumbai during August 2013. She thought it was interesting to go off the beaten path of Milan, Paris, New York and so forth for a change:
“I love to work where I feel happy. All models go to places like Japan, China, and Singapore but why not India. I want to do Lakme to see what the fashion scene is in India, what people are wearing. I want to see it from inside and hopefully connect Indian fashion with the international fashion market.”
Anastasia likes to do yoga, which drew her to Indian and Tibetan culture. She also likes Bollywood dance. She says her favorite workouts are:
“Yoga (bikram and kundalini), I love group classes of aerobics! Like Russian baths or sauna.”
Anastasia's clients include Alcaçuz , BCBG Max Azria, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Valentino, Givenchy and Maria Filó.
Haley's editorials include the November 2013 Elle Russia, the October 2012 Harper's Bazaar Spain, and the May 2011 Harper's Bazaar Hong Kong.
Anatasia is 5'10" / 178cm with light brown hair and brown eyes, though for some reason she is sometimes listed as having strawberry blond hair and green eyes.
Kuznetsova is quite a common name in Russian. If you look her up, you are likely to get several other results for other Anastasia Kuznetsovas. She is sometimes known as Nastya.
Anastasia appeared on the Television series "Model Turned Superstar" in two episodes in 2014.
Anastasia's favorite designers and boutiques: "I like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton bags, American Apparel, and H&M."
Her personal style: "“Usually I really like the classics, but today is really warm and I wanted a country look.”
