Who would want to live in the coldest climes of eastern Russia, you ask? One look at the stunning Miss Ava answers that question in a heartbeat. A native of Irkutsk, Siberia, Ava has been modeling since she was 15 and has worked in Moscow, the U.S. and Canada. Her mother was a ballerina with the Bolshoi Ballet and was Ava’s inspiration when it came to beauty. Says Ava, “She loved Alberto Vargas and Fritz Willis when I was little, so they served as important influences.” Ava also loves ’50s-inspired fashion, as well as reading, painting and playing her vintage 1960 Gibson S.G. She now calls Ontario home and still models part time while developing her own pin-up website. We can’t wait for the grand unveiling!
