Kate Grigorieva

A beauty from Olenegorsk, the Murmansk region, Kate Grigorieva became the first Russian “angel” of Victoria’s Secret. As a child, she practiced ballroom dancing. When she grew up and became a marketologist after graduating from    the Murmansk Technical University, she still had a strong desire to be on  catwalks. Kate went into a modeling business and attempted to become Miss Russia twice.   In 2012,  she became the vice-Miss of the contest “Russia’s Next Top Model”. This opened the door to catwalks of major world brands. At the end of 2014, she was recognized by the authoritative site as one of the best opening models of the season. Kate participated in the show of Victoria’s Secret  in 2014. The company signed a contract with Kate in 2015 and it lasted until the end of 2016.

Vita Sidorkina

Vita (real name - Vitalina) was born in Khabarovsk. She started her  modeling career in 2010 and was immediately called the “new Carmen Kaas”. In 2013, she moved to New York and her pictures were published in the Victoria’s Secret catalogues. For the first time, Vita came to the casting of the show in 2014, but didn’t manage to impress the brand's management.  After that, Vita spent hours training to bring herself into the right shape and get ready for the  next casting. Her efforts paid off in full - in 2015, Vita participated in the show.

Valeria Kaufman

Valeria Kaufman is famous not only for her modeling achievements: the Muscovite is a girlfriend of a rock star and Oscar winner Jared Leto. Valeria cooperated with dozens of brands, including Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton and Tom Ford. She took part in fashion shows of Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and other famous fashion houses. Now this list has been replenished with the annual show  of the Victoria’s Secret brand.

Irina Shayk

According to rumors, Irina Shayk took part in the casting three times, and didn’t get a positive answer. Only in 2016, she finally managed to participate in the show, being pregnant. Irina Shaikhlislamova (real last name) lived 50 km from Chelyabinsk. She did not always dream of a model's career - everything happened by chance. Representatives of the Chelyabinsk image club "Svetlana" noticed Sheyk right on the street and immediately invited to work. After that, she won the regional competition "Supermodel 2004", and received an invitation   to Moscow for a federal competition.  But Irina unexpectedly terminated the contract and went to Moscow on her own. Life in the rhythm of the megalopolis, endless meetings and photo shoots brought her  new opportunities. One of them was getting acquainted with the president of the international model agency Grace models Gia Jikidze. It was he who showed this Tatar beauty to the world  and brought her to the covers of a dozen magazines. In 2007, Sheyk appeared in advertisements of the famous Intimissimi brand, and since 2010, she has become the ambassador of this brand. Since that time, her career has gone up, and now she is among the most sought after models in the world.
