Tatiana Kovylina (born 4 November 1981) is a top Russian model. Victoria's Secret fans know her from the two times she walked in the Show, in 2005 and again in 2009.
Let's take a deeper look at Russian Cutie Tatiana Kovylina.
Tatiana was born in Kazan when it was still a part of the Soviet Union.
Tatiana is a Scorpio.
Kovylina has been the face of campaigns for Givenchy, Ann Taylor, Cole Hann and others.
Tatiana was on the cover of "Madame Figaro" on 27 July 2002, and also on the cover of Surface 2006 in the US.
Tatiana was in the Duran Duran music video "Falling Down," which is about models in rehab. The video was banned from British television.
Tatiana first did the Ready to Wear shows in Spring/Summer 2002 for Bernhard Wilhelm, Cerruti, Michel Klein and Tomas Maier.
Kovylina is 5' 9" (1.75 m).
Her nickname is "Tats."
Friends include Natasha Poly and Eugenia Volodina.
Tatiana is known for her very innocent yet sexy look.
Others that Tatiana has worked for include Diane Furstenberg, Nicole Miller and Alexandre Herchcovitch, among many others, mainly in the 2005-2006 period.
Tatiana appeared on the box for the Victoria's Secret Dream Angels gift box for Dream Angels Desire..
Tatiana attended Clea Mae Movement Studio in Manhattan, doing Pilates, and perhaps still does. She had this to say about that:
Don’t be deceived by Clea’s angelic appearance. Behind it stands a real professional and a very strong woman who will make you discover your inner potential. She is one of those people who put all their passion and a hundred percent of their energy into their work, in order to achieve great results. She makes this experience so joyful and exciting that you find yourself kind of addicted to her.
I see my body change every day and it’s been an amazing experience. I never thought I could develop so much strength and I considered myself a physically challenged person.
Clea, thank you so much for all the hard work and I always look forward to our next session.
Whatever Tatiana has been doing to improve her body - it has worked.
Tatiana mostly did shows in New York as her career progressed.
Tatiana was in one segment of the 2009 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Many considered it to be a comeback for her.
Tatiana kind of disappeared from the scene for a while around 2007. Word at the time was that it was because one of her agencies closed down. However, she later came back with Women Management NY. Rumor has it shhhhh that she took the time off to have a baby. That she came back after that to once again do another Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is most impressive.
Tatiana is a big fan of Yoga.
Tatiana is or was roughly 33-23.5-35 (US), 84-60-89(EU) with shoe size 7.5, brown hair and green eyes.
Tatiana has a lot of great photos and Yoga moves posted to Instagram.
"Yoga is a lifelong journey, a relationship with your inner self and just like every relationship it's an ebb and flow of energy. Make it a long term commitment to get the most of this voyage."
Tatiana always has been athletic. She loved to swim and surf as a girl and wanted to live on the beach someday.
Tatiana was known for reading very intense books backstage.
Tatiana got into modelling by winning the regional competition Elite Model Look Tatarstan.
That local win let her participate in the final held in Nice, France. She was noticed there, and soon had ads for Ann Taylor, Calvin Klein Jeans and others.
Tatiana has been retired from modelling since around 2010. She has two young children. Word is that Tatiana moved to Belgravia in Central London after she retired, where she has a private gym and perhaps a pool. Obviously, she is doing well. Tatiana was living there fairly recently, with family and dog, though maybe only occasionally. In any event, she has moved on to better things.
