In childhood every girl dreams of becoming the most beautiful and shine on the stage. But not all of them will make their dreams come true.
Ksenia Shipilova realized her dream in 2009. At “Miss Russia” beauty pageant Shipilova became the second Vice-Miss Russia.
“I have a childhood dream to participate in the contest “Miss Russia”. It was a beautiful fairy tale for me. But my parents told me that it was not serious, that education, sports and family should be my purposes. The first step to my dream I did, when I took part in the contest “Miss Ivanovo 2008”. I was awarded the title Vice-Miss Ivanovo. I was very happy! I became one of the 50 finalists of “Miss Russia 2009”. Because of the contest I even left my job. I worked as a TV presenter on local TV channel.”

Svetlana Stepankovskaya from Krasnodar became the first Vice-Miss Russia. She worked as a model in Krasnodar, Moscow, Italy, Paris and Japan.
