Lyoka Tyagnereva is with ONE NY.

PONY RYDER: When and how did u start modelling?LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: I started about 1.5 years ago in my hometown. I was walking down the street with my sister and a man came to me and asked me how tall I am. I didn't have time to answer because he saw my eyes and uneasy expression of it. So he handed me the card which read: "LMA-Lukovsky Model Agency" and told me to call the agency. I did. :)

Lyoka walked for Lanvin, Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, D & G, Donna Karan, Rodarte, Hussein Chalayan, Etro, Betsey Johnson, Tuleh, Y-3 and many many more...

PONY RYDER: Which fashion week is your favourite?

LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: I don't have a favorite fw - they are all different. And I have never done London. And, actually, I don't have enough experience to judge.

Ph. Eric G.

PONY RYDER: What's inside your makeup bag?LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: I don't have a make up bag.

PONY RYDER: What is the best beauty advice u know of?LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: Smile and be happy and kind.
PONY RYDER: What skin care products do you use?
I use some creams for sensitive skin and I like those ones which have plant extracts in them because people can't invent something better than Nature.

PONY RYDER: How do you stay in shape?

LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: Running doing the castings is pretty good sport. :) We were kidding around with one my friend couple days ago that it could be funny to have Model Olympic Games. :)

PONY RYDER: Is there any aspect of modelling that you like less than other aspects?
Definitely hair-dressers. :) And that I'm missing all my loved one's birthdays and weddings... Thanks God I was at home for my birthday and New Year!

PONY RYDER: Is there a different treatment of models and their careers in a smaller boutique agency, as opposed to big agencies and networks?

LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: Obviously agencies which are for several years in the market have an experience and know the clients and some little inner tricks in managing model's career. But I don't think the difference is big because if the client likes the girl it doesn't matter for him which agency she's from.

PONY RYDER: When you are doing runway, do u have your own signature walk?

LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: I've never seen myself from the side to be honest. But everyone has unique walk I think. :)

PONY RYDER: You are well known for your hair which is wonderfull, how do You maintain it? Aren't You afraid that hair stylist will destroy it?

LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: I need to say thank you for my parents for that. :) And I'm using some serums and conditioners as well. Totally yes!!! Doing the hair is like a torture for me. :)

PONY RYDER: You have a strong opinion about environment and going green...
LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: Well, I just love Nature. I used to study in chemical-biological class at school and then I was studying at the faculty of biology and soil sciences in St.Petersburg State University.

I'm not crazy about going green. Many things were told lately about sustainable development, environment, ecology and so on. Many of this was used as economical key factors. And as it's said the main problem and aim of modern world is to grow up people with ecological type of mind, teaching children from very young years to love Nature and how to behave because it's impossible to change an adult...

PONY RYDER: Did any other agencies approach You after You signed with the ones you are now with? How do u feel about models changing agencies?

LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: Yes. Once it was really funny. I was doing a test shoot on the ferry and I pointed that some man is just starring at me. Then he came to me and asked if I'm a model. And asked If I have agency here. I said yes but he kept asking if I like it and so on. I said that everything is alright but he gave me a card and told if I wanna change the agency to call. I forgot this card in the pocket of stylist's jacket btw. :)

Speaking about girls changing the agencies I can say only what I know after speaking with them. They told what they are doing it because they don't work with them or if there are some problems.

PONY RYDER: What would You advice to new models?
Not to become disappointed after casting. I know how hard it is when you're doing hundreds of castings when you come first time and people say just "Thank you".
PONY RYDER: Do You have model friend You would like to see presented on Pony Ryder?LYOKA TYAGNEREVA: Dasha Malygina is from my agency in St.Petersburg.
