PhotosRussian Stunner Svetlana Zakharova Will Make You Glad Instagram Exists
We spend a lot of time on Instagram (no, really—a lot of time), and when we're not living vicariously through our favorite FOMO-inducing accounts, we're checking on some particularly talented users. So when our [GQ* castings team](https://www.instagram.com/gq_castings/?hl=en) finds a ’grammer worth shouting out, we think it's our duty to share him or her with you, dear followers. Up today, Russian stunner Svetlana Zakharova.
Where are you right now?
In NY. Manhattan.
Where did you grow up?
If you weren’t a model, what would you be doing right now?
I would definitely be an actress. When I was little I took acting classes and loved it!
What is your mantra? (If you don't have one, make one up. We'll wait.)
Have courage and be kind. It's Cinderella's mantra too.
What makes you feel sexy?
My crush 🙂
Where have you never been but want to go?
I love waterfalls and have never seen one in real life somewhere with beautiful waterfalls. Maybe Hawaii.
Do you read the comments?
What do you do when you're on off-duty model time?
I like to meet up with my friends, go to concerts, Broadway shows, watch beautiful sunsets at Battery Park. I live in NY so there are so many interesting, fun things to do.
What is your most prized possession?
I always wear a necklace my stepfather gave to me. It reminds me of him. It means a lot to me.
