Top 20 Most Beautiful Russian Women 2017
There could be a reason that there are so many stunning women originating from Russia. So many, in fact, that we felt the need to celebrate their unique beauty in the top 20 most beautiful Russian women 2017. It has been reported that there are over ten million more women than there are men in the country. Perhaps why that’s where there seems to be so many beautiful ladies?!
1 – Irina Shayk
What’s not to love about Irina Shayk? The 31-year-old Russian model is famous for many things, as well as being one of the hottest women on the planet, and it was actually as an underwear model that she initially rose to fame, becoming the face of well-known brand, Intimissimi. In 2011, she then went on to become the first ever Russian model to feature on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and currently, has an Instagram following of a staggering 9 million!
Of course, we can’t talk about this Russian beauty without mentioning her love life just a little bit. She’s had a string of incredibly famous boyfriends, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Bradley Cooper, and she has since gone on to have a baby with the latter, a baby girl born in March of this year! Congratulations to the very happy couple on what is undoubtedly going to be the most beautiful baby born in 2017.
2 – Natalia Vodianova
Another beautiful model, Natalia Vodianova is 35 years of age and isn’t just a model but the occasional actress and also philanthropist too. She’s worked with the likes of Guerlain and Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney, Hugo Boss, Chanel, Gucci and more. It’s her contract with Calvin Klein that was highly talked about, however, and one that ties her to the brand for eight seasons, and accompanied a figure that reports being seven figures in length … Clever AND beautiful girl, right?
3 – Daria Werbowy
I think it’s safe to say that Russia is home to a lot of beautiful women, and this next one is no exception to the rule. 33 year old, Daria Werbowy, was born in Krakow in Poland, before moving to Canada when she was just three years of age. She’s Canadian and Ukrainian, in case you wanted to know, and a simply beautiful one at that.
4 – Lera Kudryavtseva
Believe it or not, Lera Kudryavtseva is actually 46 years old, a dancer, singer, TV presenter and actress, known on Russian TV. Her 34-year-old boyfriend is equally as famous too, just to clear up the “is she single” debate nice and early. You might remember him from his spell at representing Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest last year, 2016 — Sergey Lazarev.
5 – Alina Artts
Did you know that Russia was home to the longest railway in the world? We now that doesn’t technically have anything to do with the top 20 most beautiful Russian women 2017, but it’s a fun fact about the country nevertheless. And, talking of famous and fabulous things to come from the country, let us introduce you to Alina Artts, a Russian singer, radio and TV presenter, and actress. Oh, and just when you thought she was beautiful and hot enough, we’d just like to remind that she also featured on the cover of Playboy in 2011. Funnily enough, it was the same year the lad’s mag, Maxim, listed her as one of their sexy 100.
6 – Sasha Pivovarova
Sasha Pivovarova isn’t the real name of 32-year-old actress and model from Russia. In fact, it’s Aleksandra Igorevna Pivovarova, and she was born in Moscow on January 21st, 1985. If you’re wondering where you might remember her from, it’s Prada ads. She’s even set records with the huge fashion designer, appearing in no fewer than 19 different campaigns for them, and she currently stands as the fashion model who has appeared longest with the luxury brand.
7 – Glukoza
Her real name is Natalya Ilinichna Ionova, but this Russian singer is better known as Glukoza, which we personally think sounds like a brand of sports drink. Don’t you? Name aside, she’s most certainly a blonde bombshell, although looks aren’t everything. She has plenty of keen interests, and it might surprise you to learn that just one of them is aviation. Just in case you wanted to know more about what Glukoza enjoys, you’ll be happy to learn that she drives a rather modest Mini Copper, is the proud owner of a couple of dogs, Dobermans, to be exact, and she’s also married with two daughters. We’re very sorry if we’ve just broken your heart …

8 – Anna Selezneva
Just in case you needed a bigger reason to hang out at McDonald’s (and yes, we’re talking about the fast food restaurant), that’s exactly where Anna Selezneva’s modeling career began. It was while she was enjoying a juicy fast food meal in 2007 that she was discovered for her modeling potential, and it was within a year that she’d signed herself up to a large modeling agency, and has since gone on to walk the catwalk for a string of names that make us green with envy.
Names such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Louis Vuitton, for example. If that wasn’t bad enough, let us drop a few more designers – the late Oscar de la Renta, Robert Cavalli, and even Balmain and Chanel. So green with envy …
9 – Valery Kaufman
Isn’t Valery Kaufman stunning? Another Russian mode, she’s only 23 years old but she has quite the impressive modeling career so far, working with some of the biggest names in fashion. In both 2015 and 2016, she popped up in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and she then went to become the face for a few campaigns, including those with Emporio Armani, Balmain, and Boss Orange. Back in 2015, Glamour Russia gave her the “Model of the Year” award.
10 – Nyusha
This 27-year-old cutie is not only one of the top 20 most beautiful Russian women 2017 but classed as one of the most successful musical artists ever to come out of the country. Born in Moscow, she has the most number one singles in the country, currently standing at eight, and last year, in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016, she was the one who gave the votes on behalf of the Russians.
11 – Irina Sharipova
25-year-old Russian model born in Uzbekistan, Irina Sharipova, is better known for appearing on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show back in 2014, and also in various commercials for Dolce & Gabbana, but she has worked with a string of famous designer names, including Versace, Chanel, and Moschino. Back in 2010, she got a taste for the modeling world when she earned herself the title of Miss Tatarstan, and in the same year, she appeared on behalf of Russia in Miss World, where she came in the final 25.
12 – Tina Kandelaki
This 41-year-old Russian babe was born in Moscow, and she’s not just a TV presenter, but also a producer, a journalist, the owner of a PR and TV program production company, and also a very well known face in the world of Russian TV. Here’s a fun fact for you about Tina Kandelaki too, she currently has a couple of tattoos and both of those were used to cover up burns that she sustained during a motor vehicle collision in her younger years.
13 – Olesya Rulin
She’s technically an American-Russian actress, but 31 year old Olesya Rulin is known globally for her part in High School Musical. In case you needed us to jog your memory, she played the part of Kelsi Nielson. That’s not all she’s known for, however, and very recently she even appeared on the comedy TV show, Family Guy. She hasn’t featured in a movie since 2013, but she has appeared in a string of TV shows, including having the main role in Powers, an adaption that was created for online streaming.
14 – Alena Shishkova
As well as being a beauty queen, Alena Shishkova is also a glamour model, originally born in Tyumen in Russia, and has regularly appeared in lad’s mags, such as Maxim. The 24 year old blonde bombshell has an impressive 5.7 million followers on Instagram, and you’ll find the link below the image … You know, if you want to investigate and give her a follow for yourself.
15 – Victoria Lopyreva
34 year old Russian, Victoria Lopyreva, is a very impressive woman. She’s got an Instagram following of over 1.4 million, and also wins immediate brownie points with the boys by being able to boast of being an official ambassador of the FIFA World Cup 2018 which will be held in … yep, you guessed it, Russia!
That’s not all she does, of course, and you will also have noticed her on TV. She’s a presenter alongside an actress, blogger, model, and even beauty pageant title-holder too. We did say that she was impressive, and as you can see, she’s also incredibly beautiful!
16 – Viki Odintcova
With over 4.1 million followers on Instagram, this is definitely one of the top 20 most beautiful Russian women 2017 that you need to be following. She was in the media this year for a very daring stunt that we could barely bring ourselves to look at, standing on top of the Cayan Tower in Dubai. The Russian model was holding onto the hand of her assistant, but the stunt still wasn’t really that safe, and she got quite the telling-off from law enforcement. They even made her sign a statement to agree never to pull that kind of stunt again.
17 – Maria Sharapova
Let’s face it, 30-year-old Maria Sharapova is one of the most famous tennis names in the world, and she is actually only one of ten Russian ladies ever to have held the Grand Slam in her career. We won’t mention the Olympic medal, because we feel it’s totally unfair for someone to be *that* talented, as well as *that* beautiful, and, just to make things even worse, she even dated Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, for a spell.
18 – Valentina Zelyaeva
Although born in the Soviet Union, Valentina Zelyaeva is now an American citizen, and we must congratulate her because she only became an American citizen a few months ago, in August of this year (2017). A model that has been associated with massive designer names including Valentino, Christian Dior, and Calvin Klein, she has even graced her fair share of magazine covers too, such as Elle and Glamour.
19 – Anna Kournikova
There is a lot of mystery surrounding Anna Kournikova and her personal relationships. The 36-year-old Russian tennis player is not only one of the most beautiful Russians we’ve ever seen, but also *might* be dating Enrique Iglesias. They were first romantically linked in 2001 when she popped up in one of his music videos (for “Escape”), and there were rumors that they’d gotten married. In 2008, however, Enrique mentioned something to journalists that suggested that they had once gotten married, but they had since separated too. We’re still looking for the truth to emerge …
20 – Julia Volkova
32-year-old Julia Volkova, or Yulia Olegovna Volkova, as it is known in Russian, is a Russian actress and singer, perhaps most famous for a song that she released with band member, Lena Katina, in t.A.T.u. It was called “All the Things She Said” and we’ll be honest, we’re still singing it now. It was released from their first English studio album in 2002, (yes, that long ago) and Julia has since gone on to have an acting career.
