Meet Valentina Beli

How did you end up being a model? 

I have been discovered very randomly literally in the street by Miss of Belarus Katerina Litvinova. She asked me if I would like to make the campaign for a famous foreign brand (TIFFI from Poland). I was literally shocked and couldn’t believe in my luck. Of course, I confirmed the job and I actually successfully did it .

How would you describe yourself in three words?

I’m fair, strong and honest.

What type of music do you like to listen to? Do you have any favourite songs?

I really love rap and R&B music. I adore Drake, Eminem, 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa and others.

Your favorite designer?

I adore Calvin Klein, I think his collections are sophisticated and at the same time reflect the real American soul. I feel like American culture is very close to my philosophy of life.

Also, I’m very proud about Dmitry Sholokhov. He is also from Belarus like me. And he won the 10th season of the Project Runway. So anything is possible in USA.

Would you say that your life has changed since you started this new modeling journey?

Absolutely yes. First of all, now I have more healthy life. I really care what I eat and when. I stopped to smoke. Also, the modeling made me open-minded, kinder, sociable. And I’m happy about it.

Is there a model you really like right now? One you’d love to work with in the future?

I admire all supermodels from 90th, but my favorite are Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. Pure elegance, feminist, beauty and youthful look made them very special.

How would you describe Vanity Teen in three words?

The best magazine ever :) sorry it’s 4 words :)

Your favorite 3 models?

I really like Karlie Kloss, Ashley Graham and Joan Smalls.
