Chances are you’ve never heard of Vita Sidorkina, but the Russian model will now be firmly on your radar thanks to her latest photoshoot.
In a set of snaps hot enough to thaw any St Petersburg winter, Sidorkina has posed poolside for Cameron Hammond and Treats! Magazine.
Forget your new-fangled digital cameras, Hammond’s shot Sidorkina on old-fashioned 35mm film – something to please the Quentin Tarantino-like celluloid purists out there.
Sidorkina is a 22-year-old who hails from Khabarovsk in Russia. At 17 she moved to New York to launch a career in modelling and has hit the runway at NY Fashion Week and multiple Victoria’s Secret shows. She was even part of this year’s VS swim special edition and is the face of their PINK line.
“It’s such a big thing for all models and for me. I’m super-excited about it and it’s a big step in my career,” she said.
“Super-energetic, sexy, a healthy lifestyle. That’s what [Victoria’s Secret] bring to the people.”
Just what exactly is the Victoria’s Secret credo? Sidorkina explained: “Super-energetic, sexy, a healthy lifestyle. That’s what they bring to the people.”
Moving to NY has done wonders for Sidorkina’s profile, and she’s very much a fan of the Manhattan lifestyle.
“New York is one of the most fashionable cities, a lot of events going on. You just don’t have enough time to visit all the events!”
Sidorkina has also graced the pages of Elle, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Teen Vogue and Paper, as well as being a keen supporter of the Voss Foundation.
The latter has provided 150 clean water access points and 467 sanitation facilities across seven developing countries – changing the lives of over 100,000 people in the process.
Nicely done, Vita. Nicely done.
