Irina Kulikova – Marc Jacobs and John Galliano’s favorite model
Irina Kulikova is a Russian supermodel, the owner of the longest model legs and one of the most popular models of the new Russian wave. Pretty girl was born on August 6, 1991 in the provincial Russian town of Slobodsk.
Her story is incredible, but all of us still had to believe in it, because it’s true. To tell the truth, she was in the right place at the right time. The girl was noticed in one of the Moscow restaurants, when she was dining with her mother. The director of the famous modeling agency IMG, Stephen Bart, and no less famous daughter of the leader of the group Aerosmith, actress Liv Tyler became her “godparents”. By chance they were in the same restaurant.
The history of model business knows many cases when adamants, destined to become diamonds, were found, figuratively speaking, on the road. Beautiful Irina became another very successful find. When celebrities came up to her and offered to try her hand as a model, the girl agreed without thinking twice. Soon she flew to New York to participate in fashion weeks.
At the age of sixteen, Irina demonstrated collections of Prada and Chanel, and also was the top model for Jill Sander and Pringle of Scotland.
