Ruslana Korshunova Biography

Ruslana Korshunova was born in Almaty, Kazakh SSR on July 2, 1987, so she was just about to celebrate her 21st birthday. She had unique and alluring look, standing at 5’8�? with blonde hair and green eyes that made her modeling pictures stand apart from the rest. Her measurements were perfect as well, at 33-24-34. In 2003 Debbie Jones of Models 1 discovered her. From that point on Ruslana had a successful career, represented by agencies around the world such as, IMG New York, Paris, and London, Beatrice in Milan, and iCasting in Moscow.

Ruslana modeled around the word for many high fashion designers such as DKNY, Vera Wang and Christian Dior. She worked Fashion Week in NYC and London, walking down the runway for top designers like Jill Stuart, Betsey Johnson, and Rosa Cha. The beauty had just finished a job in Paris and friends said she was on “top of the world�?.

Ruslana Korshunova was living in a swanky NYC apartment on Water Street in the Financial district. Just before 2:30 pm a Con Ed worker and a cop were talking when they noticed a body in the street. The body was that of Korshunova, who had apparently leapt to her death from her ninth floor apartment, in what is thought to be a suicide. A friend told the NY Post that he is shocked at the suicide, and her had no idea she was suffering mentally. He says,

“There were no signs. That’s what’s driving me crazy. I don’t see one reason why she would do that.”

    It is so very sad – where is her family? Sometimes a person can become suddenly successful, and may too vulnerable, too sensitive to know how to cope. If there is a tendency towards depression, if the former home life wasn’t good, naturally there would be feelings of destructiveness. It is so important to have some sort of support system in place; even if it is just one therapist who can be there for you, keep you under his or her wing in such a way that helps you to keep trusting in life. Everyone needs it!
