Super model - the profession of the future, as experts say. The fashion world forced to turn our consciousness from head to toes, and long-legged beauties filled the catwalks with fashion shows of the most famous designers. Girls are like the stars - need to be worshiped! Beauty, clever and incredibly successful model Nevmergitska Angelika conquers public with firm but sweet temper, podium – with chased gait, photographers – with perfect shapes of the face, and us – with honesty and modesty.
Her story is not about how she accidentally got into the model business. She consciously made the choice after the first successful nomination in beauty contests. Model - it is not just about fifteen minutes of fame on the show, but a lot of work on yourself. There is no doubt, she is simply flawless - from the tips of the hair to smooth curves on her body that only emphasize her sexuality.
Like the freedom-loving bird, she flutters in the clouds, only managing to change the stamps in her passport. Flights, shows, shooting, crazy rhythm – this is all about her life! And in addition, a mess in her handbag and the wind in the head, jokes Angelika.
Angelika, hello. You have quite "an advertising" face. Does it help you in promoting your modeling career?
Partly, it helped me, but I cannot say that this was the key to my success. Appearance is only the first step towards a model career, then everything depends on you. How to present and apply yourself in a particular way. Many cannot cope with it, even with an ideal model appearance.
How to keep the facial features?
Usually young girls are not cherish and do not appreciate what is given to them by nature. And then with all the forces try to save the former beauty. I, for example, already devote a lot of time for skin care. Regularly go to beauty salons, do a variety of treatments. But when there is no possibility to break into my busy schedule, I’m happy to do some care at home. Always follow these words - «find time for yourself today and thank yourself tomorrow.»
Your Universal ritual before shooting?
I do not have any «zabobonyh» rituals. But I have always been very serious about the shooting. Because still it takes some time to be geared up for the image. It is important to show the real emotions and do not overplay. This shows that profession of model combines both acting and some more skills.
How do you feel about the different manifestations of aesthetic medicine?
With respect I relate to the industry of beauty and health. We live in the 21st century, where medical techniques allow a person to improve the appearance. I’m talking about when you really need it and cannot manage without it. I do not see anything «criminal» if these changes really make a difference. Personally, I am a supporter of natural beauty, but everyone sees it differently. Therefore make the choice.
What song would you call the soundtrack of your life?
It is difficult define at once, probably I would chose the song «I will survive» of the singer Tina Turner, as it is close to me by spirit. Our whole life is a struggle. And all that I have, I win by myself. When you have to fight for something and achieve by yourself, then it is more appreciated.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I do not want to open all the cards at once, I’m a little superstitious, to be honest. Guessing for the future - not mine and even more to advertise it. I am a person of action, not words. When it will happen, I will necessarily share with your magazine, and now let’s leave this question open.
Do you have a motto?
«After each sunset always comes a sunrise». Perhaps these words can explain my attitude to life and many other things. I try to enjoy every moment. Life is so changeable that you never know where it will turn tomorrow. But you do not need to upset, because after a bad necessarily comes good.
If you could live anywhere in the world, what would you choose?
When you live in a mad rhythm, seven days a week without rest - at first it’s exciting, you feel a lot of strength and energy. But then they go somewhere. I mean, it is very difficult to find peace and appeasement in the city. There is a desire to escape somewhere from this turmoil. That’s why I want to live in a very spiritual place, surrounded by nature. In fact, all these affect both the physical and mental state.
Do your ideas about the model’s work somehow change over the time?
I can say from personal experience that the requirements of the model every year grow and grow. Now this profession requires flexibility from the girls, and quick adaptation in addition to the perfect appearance. That’s why the amount of models becomes less. Not everyone is ready for this, expectation and reality, as it is said, are quite different.
What super power would you like to possess?
It was great to be able to teleport, sometimes I really need that. I always have a lot of plans for the day, but that’s life and sometimes not everything goes as you planned. But you still have time to try, in those moments I’m thinking about the excess capacity (laughs). This would greatly facilitate my life.
What do you like to receive as a gift?
You know, it’s all very individual, depending on many factors. Like any other girl, I will not lie and confess that I love worth presents. But sometimes, even some little thing can bring many positive emotions and joy. I am inclined to think that it’s always more important the person who presents the gift rather than the gift itself. The main thing you need to distinguish «price» and «value».
What fashion event has produced a strong impression on you?
So now it’s difficult to select one. When you are a part of the fashion event and when you take part as a guest - very different feeling. I often have to be a part of the event. Believe me, there is no so strong impression, because you’re not a guest, able to see only the beautiful «wrapper» event, but rather a part of the «behind the scenes».
The heroine of what movie do you want to become?
I admire people who can lead other in difficult situations. So-called «heroes of our time». They are found not only in the movies, but also in everyday life, we do not present them in proper way. I mean I always wanted to be one of them, if not in reality, then at least in the plot.
In her early age teens live a normal life, while our heroine has managed to achieve tremendous success that not everyone in adulthood can achieve. In dance, she found her true vocation. Without further words, she captivates the scene with her movements, fashion podiums – with her grace. A participant of international competitions, the model, which had the honor to represent the collection of the most famous fashion designers of the world on the main stage of the country. We can only just imagine how she is ready to surprise us in the future.
M.D.: How did the family move to Moscow influence on your life? After all, this is a metropolis that offers a sea of opportunities for personal development, especially at an early stage.
A.Z.: To begin with, I was born in Penza. In Moscow, our family moved when I was only 2 years old and so I rather feel like an inhabitant of the capital. Note that in the first place, thanks to the parents and, only then, as you rightly pointed out opportunities of metropolis. Since the early childhood I am familiar not only with the high pace of life, but a special style of the town, where the basis for me is a unique cultural and educational environment. Of course, to a certain age, my leisure time is completely dependent on adults, they skillfully took advantage of the resources that gave Moscow. So, my creativity was decided to implement in ballroom dancing, where for many years, each workout takes place in the same breath. In addition, from an early age I was really happy, I study foreign (French and English) languages, so I read the book in the original; I have been actively trying myself in the vast fashion- industry. So, in the big city I feel comfortable swimming in a sea of opportunities for personal development.
M.D.: How did parents manage to find your talents, exactly «that one» facet in such a «precious jewel»?
A.Z.: I’ll try to convey my vision of this issue, although it probably would be better for my mother to answer it. To the dance club I came by accident: it was located just next to the house, and we decided to try. It seems to me that at the first time lessons were perceived by parents as a certain stage of my life experience. They liked the fact that I’m learning to compete, become more confident, outgoing, I adopt the sense of taste, think over the image before going to the floor. Over time, they began to celebrate my active interest in the sport and the desire to move forward. What about model sphere, the decision to engage in modeling, I took myself, which, in my view, still contributed to ballroom dancing. Parents reacted with respect to my idea, and strongly support it. I know they believe that if the child found addiction to anything, you need to purposefully develop the gift.
M.D.: Tell us how ballroom dancing influenced on your life and childish hobby grew into a professional sport?
A.Z.: Oh, this is a subject on which I can talk for hours. My head is almost always busy with dancing: on the subway I listen to «ballroom» music, watch video contests. Even outside the ballroom, I often mentally on the floor: analyze the choreography, ponder new ideas, including image and costumes. I know that ballroom dancing for me it is not a hobby, but a lifestyle, and it is the right road on my way to the harmonious development. Ballroom dancing in my case, not only contribution to the improvement of the physical, but also spiritual growth. Day by day, step by step, learning the basics in training of dance sport, I grow as a person. I have a very tough schedule: daily training plus a schedule of tournaments (often weekly). All this, of course, I will organize internally. Ballroom dancing – the first kind of sport that teaches me to build a relationship with a partner, to listen and to hear him, to trust, to compromise, to make decisions. Dancing gives me positive. I am the one of those whose dance does not depend on the weather and the mood, but of those when the weather and mood depend on dance. And as the children’s hobby grew into a professional sport, I even myself, to be honest, haven’t noticed. I think it’s total contribution - mine, and people close to me: parents, coaches and partners. M.D.: How did the world of fashion and modeling find place in your busy life?
A.Z.: Until recently, the Russian Union of Dance Sport was headed by Valentin Yudashkin. Perhaps with the advent of his presidential appeared the first idea about the world of fashion. The advantage was the fact that I have always been one of the highest among contemporary, which, in my opinion, was a precondition to try myself on the podium. The attempt was successful, in 2015, I won as the best demonstrator of clothes in the international competition «Couturier of the Year», having the opportunity to visit the «fashion week in Rome.» Now I take part in shows with pleasure, both young designers and famous, among them Sabina Makatova, Anna Chapman, Oxana Fedorova, Santarini brands, Faberlic, Pierre Cardin. So in my life I have united two worlds - dance and fashion.
M.D.: You become a member of «Young Miss Russia 2016» the most prestigious children’s beauty and talent show. How did such a great event influence on the development of your career?
A.Z.: I think the opportunity to participate in the national competition a great success and victory - an unforgettable gift of fate. In my opinion, to appreciate the magnitude of this event, you need to go there, and it is better not as a spectator. Four bright days with a rich and interesting program, excitement before leaving the interview, a test recording, shows in Gostiny Dvor, new acquaintances are not easy to describe in words. Plus an incredible feeling that you are like a queen. And it is not the superiority relative to rivals, but in the interior, suddenly appeared, a firm confidence in your own abilities. Competition has become the next step in my career. First, I had the opportunity to participate in the competition «Miss Universe beauty 2016», which took place in France in the summer in the annual «Festival of Pierre Cardin», and where I was again the winner in my age category. I was offered a contract with the fashion house Pierre Cardin.Secondly, there was a real chance to represent our country at the international contest «Young Miss World 2016». This is the most prestigious competition among children and adolescents around the world, which was held recently in Astana (Kazakhstan). Serious training, self-confidence, a sense of the importance of this event, the support of parents, friends, acquaintances and a little luck helped me to get the title of «Gran- Prix Young Miss World 2016» with another opportunity to participate in the summer in the competition «Young Miss Universe 2017» in Lacoste.
M.D.: What are your plans for the future, and perhaps significant events in the near future?
A.Z.: At the moment, due to the circumstances I got a new dance duet, so there are a lot of work, aimed at the result. Of course, I do not forget about the upcoming final certification at school. So, apparently, I will study hard and dance in the near future. In April I plan a trip to the «Fashion Week in Rome», in the summer - at a beauty contest in Lacoste.
M.D.: Tell us about your familiarity with the fashion house of Pierre Cardin?
A.Z.: Meeting happened in the spring in the framework of the project «Young Miss Russia 2016», where Pierre Cardin fashion house together with a center of cultural and business cooperation «Maxim`s club» were the partners. Then, quite unexpectedly, I took a major casting for a special show of the great couturier in Gostiny Dvor. Of course, it was a great honor to present the creation of fashion designer of world on the main stage of the country. It was then that I first had the luck to work with representatives of the French fashion house Galina Baroness de Bouar, Rodrigo Bazilikatti, Maryse Gaspard. These people impress me with their professionalism, perfect style and the sea of positive energy. A little later, in July 2016, there was my full-time acquaintance with Pierre Cardin himself. It was an unforgettable 5 days of my life. Together with the Russian delegation, I was invited to Lacoste, the residence of the master - castle de Sade. As a VIP - guests, we were given the opportunity to attend the show of the fashion house, in a small circle to talk with the legend of the fashion world, and even dine in an informal atmosphere. I’m sure, that such a chance drops not to everyone, and sometimes once in life. So I was very lucky.
M.D.: A young person has such an adult life... But you are still attending school. How about the progress in studying, and how do you treat it in general?
A.Z.: Yes, of course, I study in the 9 form and treat to it quiet seriously. I’m sure that qualitative education - this is the key to success in adult life. Despite the fact that I am still more «humanist», for me it is important to be erudite, knowledgeable in various fields. I agree with the view that «education gives a person dignity.» Therefore, I have never had the problems with the study, «excellent» – is my normal mark. I am pleased to participate in the Olympiads of different levels, including being the winner and prize-winner of various rounds of the annual All-Russian Olympiad. Of course, in the future, I plan to get higher education, and possibly more than one.
M.D.: What «forbidden» things would you like to try in real life? Are you an adventurous person?
A.Z.: I’m not sure that all the famous adventuress as, for example, Princess Tarakanova, close to me in spirit. I do not look for adventure on my head. I feel closer to when all laid out on shelves. I think that the sport has taught me to prioritize... Although would be happy to try to jump with a parachute.
M.D.: As a child, you probably were called «indigo», the number of talents that you have is enormous! We would to know more about your fascination with «pen», because you - the young writer.
A.Z.: Among the friends of my circle there are a lot of enthusiastic creative people. Therefore, I do not remember, to be called «indigo» and certainly I myself never felt any special. Surrounding often notice my activity, the ability to go to the goal, the desire and interest to work on something. Maybe that’s why I have a lot of interests. But with regard to the literature, it is still sidelined. I do not feel myself a young writer. Honestly, I try «feather» not so often, more for occasions: writing or creative task in school competitions. Sometimes these attempts obtain successful. My biggest achievement in this area - a victory in the International Competition of Children’s Art under the auspices of the Commission UNESKO «Tales of a beautiful heart.» Of course, it was very nice to reap the fruits of the labor when my essay in poetic form «Life is a Miracle: thinking out loud» was the best among the 4,000 works of my contemporaries from around the world. But, hand on heart, I want to admit that it is not the result of a special love for writing, but rather a desire to take part in an interesting project.
M.D.: Your resource of inspiration?
A.Z.: The source of inspiration for me can be anything you want. Sometimes the emotional high tide forces and the creative inspiration promote new acquaintance, warm family dinner, the success of a friend, beautiful music, even pleasant lighting ballroom. Always successfully motivate people, such as parents.

M.D.: If you had to give up and choose only one sphere? And why such a priority?

For beautiful girl it is hard to find love, too many temptations (laughs).

It is very difficult, you need some training, but the result is simply amazing ... When you have views to the mountains - it’s just unreal feeling, is simply breathtaking!

M.D.: How did your modeling career started? And what achievements are you particularly proud of?
C.A.: After participating in a beauty contest in Omsk, in 2008, I was noticed in a modeling agency, and offered cooperation. Since then, modeling has become a part of my life. Filming for clothing and shoe boutiques, for magazines and catalogs, advertising banners and leaflets.

After all, being a very little one, I strongly urged my mother, that I should be one of those girls from bright television screens. I was at that time 6 years old, realizing it cannot capture the spirit. Despite the fact that with age, my interests changed and I even dabbled in choreography by random circumstances, I still was on the true path! So happened that my friend invited me to a photo shoot in the agency where he worked. Captured snaps and tests have been submitted to the Director, and later it was decided to send pictures to the agency to which they cooperated in Moscow. Then my first audition and the first success - well, hello world of fashion, I am your prisoner!
M.D.: What was the reaction of your dad that you want to become a model, and the fact that you finally became?
E.M.: My parents sent me to study for the accountant economist. Their choice was obvious and clear to me, because it is a reliable profession. For them it was important to me to get a good education and had a stable job. But whatever path I choose, my family - it’s always my support! Because the desire to move to Moscow and to realize myself as a model was approved. Of course, not without persuasion to think again and not to leave father’s house. But ambition did not allow me to stop halfway. The capital received me with open arms - then still a young girl with the right moral values and good education, one who has come to fulfill your dreams. I am grateful to everyone, and especially to my parents for having believed in me at that moment.
M.D.: Which agencies are working now with?
E.M.: Initially, on arrival, I worked with the Fashion Stars, Modus Vivendis. Later - Grace Models, Starsystem Russia, Avant Model Agency. At the moment I am about 6-7 bases modeling agencies. Also I have an agent who has 2 years working with me and offers me a job.
M.D.: So what is «modelling»?
E.M.: «Every girl has a beautiful appearance or shape 90/60/90 and high growth-could be a model.» It is the usual mistake about modeling. In fact, the most important feature of the model can be only her durability, tenacity and determination. Those who have good data, but there is no confidence will not be able to achieve development. The model path is the path that the girl goes one on one with stress, failure, refusals, struggles with herself and her insecurities, fears. Work on yourself- perhaps it is just the most difficult.
M.D.: How do you keep fit?
E.M.: I do not sit on a diet, do not pace myself workouts in the gym. Of course I go to the gym once a week, just to maintain muscle tone. I can practice at home. Since childhood I was thin and fragile. There was a terrible time when I had some complexes, but understood with age, that is a plus. Many girls in the modeling business dream of a figure without dieting, I have the same by nature. Of course a healthy diet should always be. I have in the diet each day of fruits, vegetables, porridge in the morning with a spoon of honey, depleted fish, meat or seafood.
M.D.: What style of clothing do you keep in your daily life?
E.M.: I live in a non-stop, and my schedule - the castings, filming and other planned activities. In everyday life, I prefer casual style - it is always fashionable, and what is more important - comfortable. In the locker room there are generally calm tone, warm gray, black, white, beige and shades of blue. On weekdays, I do without makeup, rhinestones, vivid colors. Moscow is a fast city, won’t wait. Therefore it is necessary skillfully combine street style, but do not forget about femininity. Bright looks, high heels and other «pomposity» leave for the events.
M.D.: What do you have to refuse from, as a model?
E.M.: Almost from nothing. Since I do not sit on a diet, in diet can all afford. The only minus is of course the lack of time for their relatives. I fly to them every six months, and would like more often.
M.D.: What methods of modeling do you use in your everyday life?
E.M.: When possible I’m doing on the set of natural individuality. But as in every shooting or show is a kind of reincarnation of your usual way of life in the way that they want to see in the picture. For example, now I’m burning brunette sexy, vamp girl, and the next image of sweet seventeen girls in jeans and thingies. This kind of acting, dramatic transformation in life helps to adapt to different situations. Modelling helps me restrain emotions, to be kind of cold, indifferent when inside all boils. Behave myself worthy in any society. Filming helps me to work on myself and see myself from the outside.
M.D.: What was the most memorable show or shoot for you?
E.M.: Many different shows and I remember shooting unnecessarily I love what I do. Probably one of the most vivid impressions was Dmitry Demin. His collections have fascinated me. Each of his product was performed amazingly. Thin veils, velvet ribbons, shatush, lace, ostrich feathers, velvet, silk. Moreover, his approach was special, he picked up on each addition, taking into account the personality of the model. I wore a dress with incredible train, a hat with a veil - how not to fall in love with this image ?!
M.D.: How do you evaluate the model business and fashion industry in Russia today?
E.M.: Certainly Russia has a quite developed model business. But unfortunately, not the same as in Europe, USA. Someone is satisfied, someone not. Everyone has their own opinion on this. If the model wants to greater heights, not to work in Russia. Should be ready to work harder for 10 times. It costs a lot of moral strength and persistent disability.
M.D.: Model in Russia - a rich person?
E.M.: Everyone has their own idea of wealth. I know one thing, that there are no models in Russia who during her career, received honoraria for $ 3000-4000 for filming. Initially, any model works for herself, for her portfolio, accumulating experience. After she becomes a professional, then there is a profit. It depends, someone just is lucky and she will get a well paid shooting for the catalog.
M.D.: What do the girls, who dream of becoming a professional model, need?
E.M.: Each girl who has a desire to connect her life with modeling business, I would suggest, to think twice if you are ready for this important step. Not so easy as many people think, the beautiful appearance is not enough. We need intelligence, strength of character, a lot of patience, in any case do not want to scare. Just really look at things. You need to clearly understand what you want and go step by step to this, every day working on them. Then you will certainly get what you strive for!
media personality and a secular person. Confident and ambitious Oksana Orda is a personification of beauty and success. These girl is admired and aspireы to be like. And joining ranks of fans do not stop to worship her. It is obvious that the life prepares this beauty to be on the top. Flying above the heavens, she conquers new heights, inspiring us.
Luckily for me - to love and be loved
M.D.: It is said that we judge people by the eyes. What is for you the pledge of this fine state?
O.O.: Hello. Luckily for me - to love and be loved. There is a beautiful parable about the flower and the gardener, so she is close enough to me, and there I see the meaning of life.As each plant needs care, and a person needs another person in order to find harmony in life. I believe that there is a strong connection between the two, and it cannot be broken by anything. In general, this concept includes many things. Health and family - are no less important. I can tell you one thing, when you are surrounded by well-being, you just acquire it yourself.
M.D.: Creative children are often very picky. And you were a kid in the difficult childhood?
O.O.: Yes, I’m afraid my mother with me was not easy. She had to take me to the clubs, pick up at a later time. My parents surrounded me with warmth and care. Not needing anything, I can say with confidence that my parents are my support. They shared with me my experiences and excitement in the various competitions and festivals. they were the first who gave me a helping hand. Even years later, in his student days I was surrounded by support of people close to me - it’s my friends. I was training on «Miss University» and they helped me to sew my costume. There I became the First Vice Miss University of Taras Shevchenko!
M.D.: Work on television - a huge responsibility, because you should always look at 100%. You perfectly cope with this mission. How do you do it?
O.O.: I try, thank you. I’m pretty self-critical and do not think I look best. This is my big plus. There are no perfect people, there is always a lot of work and a lot of work, each of us. Meal is of course important. Well-being - is the key to success. For an anchorman - important to work on pronunciation. I always hear my mistakes myself. It is necessary to work hard, improve and then be sure the result will be.
M.D.: You are a media person, a lot has been written spoken about you. How do you respond to criticism and «black» PR?
O.O.: Honestly, previously perceived close to the heart, now try not to react, only smiles. Black PR is also a PR, more important to write the name correctly! Why have not I heard or seen ... It’s not just about me! If you respond to all like these, you will be mad. All my advice if someone write or say about you, you’re interesting to people.
Friends perhaps know me better
M.D.: The shooting process for you - quite a usual thing. Give advice to our readers how to behave confidently in front of the camera.
O.O.: If you’ve decided that you are ready to give your time and effort to this profession, and more importantly you have certain skills, the first thing is to pass the necessary training. Naturally, one should not expect great success immediately, because everything comes with experience. With each new air, you will acquire more and more confidence. Excitement is present in me to this day - and it’s not ashamed to admit. But it is less and less important to believe in yourself and in what you do.
M.D.: How your personality matches your zodiac sign?
O.O.: I am, personally,a Scorpio. But I would not say that my character corresponds to the characteristics of this sign. Rather the contrary. There is a small fraction of similarity, for example, if you hurt Scorpio - he might sting. My friends in solidarity say that I am absolutely not like a sign, perhaps they know me better.
Family is on the first place
M.D.: We talk a lot about your career, work. And what place in your life takes a family?
O.O.: For me, family is on the first place, without dispute. I very much appreciate and thank parents for what they’ve got. I dream of creating such a family - strong, close-knit.
Fashion - my addiction
M.D.: The naked eye can see that you are wearing the latest trends! What style of practice?
O.O.: Fashion - my addiction. Dolce Gabana, Versace, Philip Plain, Gucci - favorites among brands. I always pick up perfectly and think over my every image. Not because I am a media person, but because I really like it. Just in my wardrobe there are things from the Ukrainian designers, for example Alena Lourdes. She has an interesting track suits, as for me. Probably right now you hear «trivial», but I would like to note one simple thing. Not clothes make the man …
Fight fatigue and bad mood
M.D.: What is the role of women in modern society, in your opinion?
O.O.: I think many women - so many roles. Every woman has a role in this society. It depends on how she sees herself in her environment. But I still stick to the classics - a successful, loving and caring mother and wife. This integral concepts for any girl, and all the rest individually.
M.D.: Surely you «crazy» schedule. How to fight fatigue and bad mood?
O.O.: This is one of the aspects of my work. For me the rest - it’s a change of situation. Sometimes you want to stay away from everyone. Enjoy the gifts of nature and its beauty. Little corners of Paradise - this is my salvation and my inspiration.
I wish every girl find themselves in this difficult world.
