There's a common misconception that to make it as a famous model, you have to be a size zero waif to be successful. But that outdated idea is becoming increasingly irrelevant, what with bodacious Maxim faves like Iskra Lawrence and Maxim's April cover bombshell Ashley Graham, who are owning heats and minds on Instagram while proudly displaying some seriously dangerous curves.
Take Anastasiya Kvitko, who we first caught wind of last year. The Russian 21-year-old moved to Miami to court top modeling agencies, but was told she needed to lose weight and take those curves down a notch. Kvitko wisely declined their advice, and now she's racked up 2.6 million Instagram followers and is known as the "Russian Kim Kardashian" because of her mind-blowing figure.
"I consider myself perfect, and therefore don't want to change anything," she told Russian-owned news agency Sputnik. Kvitko also insisted she's never had plastic surgery, and maintains her bombshell figure the old-fashioned way. "The only thing I put time into is sports, so I spend a lot of time in the gym."
A lot of time? We're thinking nearly all of her time. When asked what she thought made her so popular Kvitko said it was because of her "outstanding complexion" and "feminine figure." We're guessing a lot of guys out there agree.
Thank you Anastasiya, for taking a stand against the misguided fashion police, and most of all, let's all give thanks to her eye-popping Instagram feed. Here's a few highlights:
