International beauty, Kira Dikhtyar a model and actress whose passion revolves around traveling and being in front of a camera is achieving her dreams by working hard every day. At age 16 she began her career as a model and today is professionally signed with LA Model Agency. Kira never had a goal to become an actress, but recently booked an acting job playing a Russian supermodel.
MW: As a supermodel part of your job is to travel a lot. Does it make you home sick and miss your family?
KD: I wouldn’t say home sick because before I was a model I was a professional gymnast. So, I’m used to be away from my family, but I do really miss my son, Alexander!
MW: Traveling the world must be such an incredible experience. Please tell us what your favorite is.
KD: Exuma, Bahamas is my favorite traveling spot! They have very lovely beaches, overall it is such a beautiful place to be.
MW: How has modeling influenced your style?
KD: In my personal style, I prefer simplicity because I get a chance to wear the most expensive clothes. I prefer something comfortable, but ever since I started modeling I adore wearing high heels!
MW: How has the combination of acting and modeling impacted your character?
KD: Well actually I have to say modeling and acting are 2 completely different professions. Very often we hear from director to “stop modeling” so means stop looking very pretty and to be aware about it, while in modeling you have-to do everything to make sure that you look good
MW: What memorable runway shows have you walked in?
KD: Valentino, Dior, Chanel
MW: How do you prepare prior to walking in a show?
KD: Well, before every show there is casting or fitting. Right before the show models go hair-makeup, also very important in our profession is not to forget to have something to eat! I also would have a glass of champagne to ‘sparkle’ right before the evening show.
MW: How do you define beauty and fierceness?
KD: It’s a difficult question. I personally prefer more classic brands, because classic beauty never goes out of fashion. But again, I am just a model.
MW: Can you give us a piece of advice that you have learned from your career?
KD: Advice is simple: “never give up” and never be afraid to be rejected.
