Alyona Subbotina for me was always an example for to never give up. What circumstances wouldn’t develop around what difficulties it shouldn’t face, the person surely will have forces to overcome them. Once, at a dawn of the model career, Alyona pestered the local agencies and heard every time on a casting: “You don’t suit us”. There passed some time and Alyona appears in the advertizing campaign of Givenchy, and after it managers of cosmetic giant M.A.C invite to a cooperation. I think, it would be interesting to it to see persons a casting of the directors who are looking through these pictures on the Internet. Keith Moss in such cases speaks: “The best revenge is success”, Alyona speaks about the price of the victory so: “If you are sure of the forces, then stop at nothing!”
Alyona is from Kazakhstan, the city of Almaty. In model business she since 16 years, and for years of the career managed to take part in displays of Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Fendi, Rick Owens and Givenchy, will appear on the Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue pages.
