Snejana moved to Kiev – the capital of Ukraine – where she was discovered by a modeling scout which led to the start of her career in 2001. In 2005 her career really started to take off, when she started appearing in campaigns for Prada and Dolce & Gabbana.
As many models do, Snejana has had controversy about her weight during her modeling career. She was quite a bit heavier as a young girl (if you’re curious, there nude pictures online of her as a young teen. I won’t post them for obvious reasons, but they’re not very hard to find.) But like most girls trying to make it big in the world of high fashion, she worked to lose weight – and at one point in 2006, she weighed in at 45 kilos (99 lb) on a Ukranian television show. Soon, I’ll post pictures of her on the show’s scale (I’m still trying to find the video.) I find that an amazing weight for a girl of 5’9″ – and can hardly imagine the hard work it took to get there. Right now I’d say Snejana is about 105 pounds, and still looks very lovely and skinny. I wish I had been paying attention to her back when she was 99lbs, that would have been ultimate thinspo!
