Kate Grigorieva

Kate (27) hails from Russia. Kate started out modelling in 2010 taking part in Miss Russia. Two years later she took part in Miss Russia 2012, where she was a top 10 finalist. In the same year she appeared in the fourth cycle of Top Model po-russki, Russia’s adaptation of Next Top Model along with her sister Valentina. It resulted in Kate being first runner up and her sister Valentina second runner up. Kate was signed with modelling agency ZMGROUP. After her appearance in Top Model po-russki, modelling agency The Lions New York displayed interest in signing her. This eventually led to Grigorieva’s debut at New York Fashion Week in 2014.

1 year later she parted with the brand disregarding her ‘Angel’ status, however she continues to attend the VSFS casting each year and walk for the annual runway show. Kate is still a favourite among many designers and photographers in the fashion industry, walking for major brands and designers during each and every fashion week. Kate has a degree in marketing and is continually studying english to help her communicate better with clients. 8 months prior to her first major casting she didn’t speak a word of english!

CFDA Awards 2017 – Lookbook

Monday night’s celebration of artistic talent reminded everyone — beyond the designers, editors, stylist, and more — that what we wear (and the people who make it) holds weight in all aspects of our lives. Well-dressed celebs were out in full force as the fashion industry handed out its top honours in New York.

Here’s what stood out to me on the red carpet, and what I believe, are best dressed:
