The model has her own blog called From Russia With Love, which unmasks the secret life of the American fashion world and gives advice to those readers who may also want to be on the front covers and striding the catwalks.

She explains: 'I am Vita Sidorkina, a Russian model who came to New York in 2013 with a ton of ambition and a huge dream: To live and build a career in this bright and unpredictable city. 

'So what has this crazy plan turned into? You're going to find out on the pages of From Russia with Love! Here, I will share my world with you, take you behind the scenes on my journeys, tell you my experiences and even my secrets.'

She tells how she was born and raised in Khabarovsk, on the eastern fringe of Siberia close to the Russian-Chinese border, 'that is still dear to my heart. 

'I must admit I always knew I would not stay in Khabarovsk, not because I don't love my city, but because I am a cosmopolitan - I can live and work anywhere and won't let anything limit me, especially geographic boundaries.' 

She writes about her work with Victoria's Secret, describing a typical day, and adds: 'VS shooting never stops, so people working there consider their job like a 9-5 in an office. And they don't always understand the butterflies in my stomach - every time I realise that I'm working for such a famous brand!'

With the start of The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 she posted on Facebook: The DAY is finally here! 

Another entry: 'Yesterday was a long, long day, which ended with a rare late-night Skype call with my parents. I don't get to chat with them too often because of the huge time difference, but if I do it's usually late at night when I can neither think nor talk...

 'They were asking about what happens behind the scenes at a Victoria's Secret shoot, so I thought I'd give you a rundown of a typical day on set, just in case you wanna know too. This is one of the most common questions I get asked by people, and they often have an idea that might not reflect the reality. So with that in mind, here's what really happens on set! '

She is truly beautiful...talented...focused...ambitious...& shows everyone that America isn't the real bad place...it portrayed to be in some Russian press. What a "Model" of Siberia she is, which is itself, beautiful. Vita, much more success to you, as I said you are "Beautiful"!
