Katerina! What an absolute honor to have you feature! How excited were you to be in FHM? Oh yes! It is absolutely incredible, once I learned that I was going to be in FHM I could hardly breathe. I am so happy to be with you guys!

Modeling is a big part of your life, could you tell us what inspired you to start and what your journey has been like to get to this point? I feel it is my way to say something and to share my personality with the world. I’ve always admired ’80s and ’90s supermodels, such as Cindy Crawford. I wanted to create beautiful photographic stories, so, I went to an open casting call to one of the most famous Russian agencies, and to my surprise, I was accepted. Since then I’ve been working for many different projects all over the world.

You look incredible, what are some of your favorite ways to work out? Thank you so much, I appreciate it. My favorite is to fall in love with a handsome man but the other option is to do yoga every day which is much more reasonable if you can understand. Also, I love dancing, especially belly and exotic dancing.

We would love to get to know you! Describe to us what a day in the life of Katerina is like? Oh, very boring. I get up at around 7am, do my morning exercise routine, get breakfast, and check my stuff. Then go shooting or filming – or dating.

What are some of your favorite things to do? Definitely, I am fond of photography and filming.

You’re glamorous and fun, what would you say makes you the happiest? Oh, very simple things like meeting friends and family. Also, I’m always inspired by the arts, many forms of it, I love being at galleries, seeing modern art installations. I love wandering around old downtowns and along historical routes imaging what it was like a long time ago. I love movies and music makes me feel good for sure.

Turn-ons? Guys who are ambitious, confident, and committed, good cologne, wine, and diamonds for sure.

Turnoffs? Laziness, cheaters, and people who are too immature.

What makes you tick? Planning. I need and always set up a goal, then I just follow the steps I defined to achieve it. That makes me work.

As an established model, what advice can you give aspiring models out there to help them achieve their dreams of doing what you do? I would say that the most difficult part about being a model is that you need to be very good with your time and planning things. Also, you need to be very determined. Don’t give up, always seek new options and opportunities and your dream will definitely come true.

Thank you so much for sitting with us and letting us get to know a bit about you! Any last words for our readers out there? The beauty is always inside us and when it shows it makes our planet a better place to live.
