Just returning home, to Russia, from the last shooting, Yulia jokes that she manages to live on two coasts at the same time. And no, you were not mistaken, her nickname is Schastlivaya, which turned out to be really fateful. After all, the girl is successful in the fashion industry because of her “doll” appearance. The model is in demand all over the world, both for brand advertising and for photography in the beauty industry, her type is commonly called «baby face». In addition to the modeling career, Julia is preparing to release her own clothing line, and even manages to have 470 thousand fans in Instagram.
M.D .: Yulia, 60% of your time you spend on shooting abroad, this is probably very exhausting?
Y.S.: Yes, it is. Sometimes I even joke with friends that I live in several countries at once. Despite the fact that most of my working time I have to be on my way, I still want to come back to my homeland. I can say with certainty that I am a Russian fashion model - I was born and live in Russia, and proud of it.
M.D.: Where do you get inspiration and strength?
Y.S.: The main source of my energy is the connection with nature. Wild places and landscapes, familiarity with animals - this is what makes my heart flutter like a fairy butterfly. I love feeding stingrays, giraffes, elephants, recently I flew on a scientific expedition to the ice in the White Sea to get acquainted with the squirrels, they are cubs of harp seals.
M.D .: How do you define your character? How much is it similar with your angelic appearance?
Y.S.: In my life I am a person of spark, my soul requires a holiday in the life and not only mine, but of all my close people. I cannot sit still, that’s why I lead others - this is mine.
M.D .: Is it easy for you to be separated from your daughter, because you are also a young mother.
Y.S.: My daughter, Dai, almost always flies with me. So it seems that we are as one whole. There is an extraordinary relationship between us, and it is very difficult to be away from each other. But sometimes I still leave her with my grandmother in Russia, when I’m leaving for three or four days. Many flights are not very good for the health of the child.
The main beauty rule for flights is abundant hydration. I try to drink as much liquid as possible, apply thermal water to my face, make special masks, and sometimes even take them with me.
M.D.: You work with a lot of creative people, all of them are not easy personalities. How do you contact with them?
Y.S.: The secret hides not in my attractiveness, but rather in immediacy, a kind of charisma. It instantly charms everyone: photographers, producers, colleagues on the set, and even strangers. Already from the first minutes of communication I captivate people. And this is despite the fact that people, looking at my photos, often hang me a label of a bitch. But at the first acquaintance they are pleasantly surprised and later they become my friends.
M.D.: Do you have any hobbies besides the profession? What do really bring you pleasure?
Y.S.: Definitely I love to cook, and it does not matter what it will be. This passion was given to me from my mother, she’s a professional cook with twenty years of experience. In my free time I read a lot, plunging into history, I become a hero - it’s breathtaking. In the same way with cinema, at times it seems to me that I watch them too much (laughing).
M.D.: How serious is your passion for design? Don’t you plan to go to the ranks of designers and release your collection?
Y.S.: I create sketches myself, I love the process very much, I can draw for hours. Soon I plan to launch my line of dresses, which will be dedicated to my little princess. In general, I am esthete: everything should be beautiful, everywhere and always.
M.D .: Tell us about the real space of beauty in the city of Yaroslavl?
Y.S.: At this moment in my life a new creation, a real space of beauty and connection with nature - bsbrush. For a long time I dreamed that beauty-places of European level will make their way to the outback of our country, and especially Yaroslavl, because our city is the heart of the Golden Ring of Russia.
