Varya started mod­el­ling three years ago, aged 23, af­ter be­ing scouted danc­ing in a band in St Petersburg, Rus­sia. She has walked for Gucci, Louis Vuit­ton and Givenchy, but says that her great­est ca­reer achieve­ment has been work­ing with Marc Ja­cobs. Varya calls St Petersburg home but is cur­rently liv­ing and work­ing in New York. When she gets a day off, she likes to roam the city seek­ing in­spi­ra­tion for her art: ‘I love to draw,’ she says. Varya keeps a scented can­dle and a book by her bed, and her cur­rent read is Paulo Coelho’s The Diary Of A Ma­gus. Varya stars in Style Out on page 234.
