November Style Icon - Vika Kuropyatnikova
(View full size image here)
This 23-year old Ukrainian model from Chernigov is a Raw-Edged Beauty with the exact attitude on and off the runway. Despite gracing the cover of Elle Italia September 2009 recently, the unpretentious Virgo-an has yet to make it as big as her fellow Ukrainian peers such as Daria Werbowy. Her slantly cat eyes and small pert lips are in stark contrast with her strong, broad facial structure gives her her unique, harsh look. Fashion photographers have yet to discover her versatile look. I would pick Vika Kuropyatnikova over Freja Beha Erichsen anytime.
