Swans Since Birth

No ugly duckling phase for these Russian supermodels apparently! The September 2008 issue of Vogue Russia cleverly juxtaposed current photos (taken by photographer Terry Tsiolis) and childhood photos (sent in by the girls' parents) of the Russian greats like Sasha, Natalya, Snejana, Anna and all those names ending in "a"!

Anna Selezneva

Diana Farkhullina

Maryna Linchuk

Natasha Poly

Olga Sherer

Sasha Pivarova

Snejana Onopka

Tanya Dziahileva

Vlada Roslyakova

Looks like they were born to model! And that I was born to blog about this, hahaha!

That Anna Selezneva looks exactly like my Latvian roomie. There's something a little tragic in the eyes of these Russo/Baltic beauties.
