MASHA TYELNA, MODEL PROFILE

If you’ve paid attention to the runways these past few seasons, then you have likely noticed Masha Tyelna, the girl with the huge, majestic eyes.

Although this Ukrainian beauty was only signed last year to Women Management, she has already made major waves in the industry. Masha’s eyes are like two gleaming sapphires set in the face of a doll, but even with this prominent feature, it’s hard to categorize this girl as one of the so-called “alien models” since her body is just as magnificent as her face.  Standing at 5’11”, she is physically well proportioned with amazing legs.


 

Masha is unique in her demeanor as well. She comes across as very kind and endearing, and has a distinct softness to her personality. Her eyes speak volumes and portray a vast range of emotion and vulnerability, yet her strong poses and presence balance out her gentleness.

In just over a year, Masha has gone from making her debut on the runway to, in the recent F/W shows, opening for highly regarded design houses such as Christian Dior, Rick Owens, Ann Sofie Back, and A.F. Vandevorst.
 

Aside from her runway work, she has also appeared in several editorials. She’s already been photographed by legendary photographers Steven Meisel and Steven Klein for Italian Vogue and has been featured in magazines such as V, Dazed & Confused, Numéro (Japan), and i-D.
