Stats: 17 years old; from Moscow; repped by Marilyn.

Spring runway scores: Alexander Wang, Theyskens’ Theory, Vera Wang, Miu Miu.

Fashion week musings: “You always have like eight places to go — some way uptown, then in five minutes you have to rush all the way downtown, then back up again.”

Biggest fear: “I’m scared of being late because I’m a really slow person and never know where I am. Even with GPS on my phone, I’m always asking people, ‘Do you know where this is?’”

Casting necessities: “My headphones are always with me. I listen to Lil Wayne and Kid Cudi to pump me up. Oh, and Justin Bieber! I’m going to marry him, by the way.”

On-the-go snacks: “Yogurt, cashews, Starbucks hot chocolate.”

I really hope I run into: “Kanye West! I love him!”

Newbie advice: “Try to be on time!”
