Interview by @maryjaynnnne

How did you start modeling?
I started modeling in a curious way when a friend of mine was going to a casting for one fashion show and offered to go with her. I was like “why not?” In the shortest time I had to practice the catwalk. After that event I went into modeling seriously, attending the model academy courses, doing the shoots and other fashion shows.

Tell us what are you into besides modeling?
Shoots and fashion shows take most of my time, which I really enjoy. This is the way to express myself for me. Besides that, I am into some acting and filming projects. I am also doing fashion sketches which is the biggest hobby of mine.

Who is your favorite model and why?
That’s definitely GiGi Hadid! I love her! She’s truly professional and a new star of the modeling business now. Among the more established models that would be Gisele Bundhen. She’s so many years on the stage and she’s awesome in all the aspects of this word: professional, hard-working, ambitious.

Did you grow up with a large family?
Not really, there’s me and my younger sister. As an older sister you always have to take care of younger sisters, brothers, you know :).

What do you do in your free time?
Sports, fashion sketches, cooking – these are my hobbies which help me to relax and to sometimes free myself from a hard-working and ambitious me.

What’s the biggest city you’ve been to?
Dubai – so far the largest city I’ve been to. I am in love with this city so far. It’s really international.

What city do you have on your list to go to before you die?
That would not be a city, I believe. That would be islands in the Pacific Ocean where I would be learning to surf. That’s one of my dreams, in fact.

What is your best asset?
My best asset is my ability to learn fast and to create new things. I am more about creativity and putting together usual things in an unusual way. Whenever there’s fashion editorial with some cool idea in it, I get really excited to be part of that creative process.

What are your goals as a model?
My goal as a model is to do the catwalks for Victoria’s Secret shows.

Valentina Vakhnovska for alwayz therro 2How do you see yourself progress in this field?
The next steps in my career will be the contracts with big names in international fashion industry. I am dreaming and working to model for Victoria’s Secret bikini shoots, for Calvin Klein jeans, Elie Saab dresses, Dior, Chanel.

What turns you on about a man?
Oh, that’s definitely his goals in life, his attitude towards women, his vision of himself in the future and his ability to take care of his woman. If you feel he’s got right goals and good vision of his future life, you instantly feel safe and secure. At the same time this is what turns me on, because the very moment I feel it, I know that this is my man.

What do you prefer? Bad boy or Classy Men?
Physically, Classy Man. I really don’t like Bad Boy image.

What instantly gets you off?
On the part of men that’s bragging, showing off, too much talking. I really don’t like men who talk much. Men are obviously more about action.

Are you a giver or taker during sex?
Both :). Sex is the process where you and your partner exchange the most intimate energies of you both. So, if I want to get more, that means, I need to give more. But this thing works only in that case when your partner has the same view on that. Otherwise, you could only be giving without receiving anything in return.

How can we follow you online?
You are welcome to follow my Instagram page @v.vakhnovska which is my professional portfolio :). I am working to make people see and feel the beauty of style and fashion.
