Kaufman — Russian Model
Models.com said that Kaufman is one of the top 50 models working today. Kaufman was on his way to big things in advertising as early as 2014 when he did a commercial for Saint Laurent. I’ve always known that I would be a model.” In November 2014, Kaufman told i-D. My older sister and I both took part in several beauty pageants when we were young.
Since I was nine, I’ve been dancing in front of the mirror all the time. I always thought I would be a performer or model, no matter what. Several agencies got my photos, but I wasn’t picked up. So, after getting a call from Ford, I flew to New York and looked around at the different agencies there. I chose Marilyn and then went to The Society, where I am now represented.
I knew I would be asked to take part in New York Fashion Week before it happened. Since then, four seasons have come and gone. Even though it’s crazy, you can’t help but be drawn in. Every day, fittings and castings happen, but when they slow down, it seems like nothing is going on. You’re almost forced to keep going because you’re so used to it.
Kaufman Was born In Moscow
She told i-D about how she spent her childhood. She said, “It was amazing to grow up in Russia. My city is the best place in the world, in my opinion. I like the people here and how they act. It changes all the time. For Moscow, this is the start of a new era that will be marked by the building of huge skyscrapers.
In the past, it was a bit different, almost like a small village. There used to be only a few big office buildings, but now there are a lot of smaller ones. Things about its history and culture are still being worked out. A wonderful place to raise children!”
Leto And Kaufman First Got To Know Each Other As Friends.
At first, they didn’t hang out together. “They seemed to be friends at first glance,” a source told the newspaper. They often went out in groups to meet new people. They didn’t go on dates by themselves.
Leto And Kaufman Have Been On And Off For Years.
In June 2020, a source said, “Things seem to have gotten more romantic over time.” After dating for a few years, there have been rumors that they have been spending more time together recently.
Only a few pictures have been taken of the two of them together over the years. All of them were shot at the same time in July 2017, February 2018, February 2020, and September 2020.
Kaufman Has Talked About How Much She Loves Acting, Art, Music (Especially Michael Jackson), And Music.
Kaufman hasn’t done many in-depth interviews over the years, but she did talk to i-D about her interests in 2014. “Michael Jackson and Bob Marley” were some of the artists she listened to as a child, in her own words. “In my eyes, they are both the kings of music. They are both my heroes.” Some of my all-time favorite songs are “Billie Jean,” “Bad,” and “Thriller,” to which I used to dance.
Kaufman said, “I like art a lot and visit many galleries.” Andy Warhol and Keith Haring are my favorite pop artists. I’m also interested in Damien Hirst’s butterfly pieces. I love the way he dresses. I also learn how to act at the New York Film Academy. Next year, we’ll see how things go at New York University for theatre.
