Early life and education
Viktoria is one of the most secretive people in the modelling industry, as she hasn’t shared anything about her early life with the public. There is almost nothing known of her background story except that she was living with her parents and siblings in Russia, before she moved to New York City.
She is said to have matriculated from a local high school in Russia but because she and her family were in need of money, she began working, and has never enrolled at college.
Viktoria was unsure whether or not to participate in the plus size modelling contest held in Russia, but she had her friends and family to support and encourage her – she competed and won the competition. This meant everything to Viktoria, and marked the start of her career – she is one of the girls representing the “I’m No Angel” Lane Bryant’s campaign, which has a goal of competing with Victoria Secret’s models. The campaign claims that natural beauty is better than the one portrayed by the Victoria Secret’s models.
“I’m no Angel” by Lane Bryant
‘Lane Bryant invented possibilities’ is what the website says – voicing that she has found a place for women who have thought that they don’t belong anywhere. The campaign encourages women to believe that they can and certainly will achieve everything they want, if they try hard enough – ‘possibilities are endless and boundaries are meant to be pushed’. They are helping women become happier and more confident with every passing day – they are in charge of creating a new style for every woman who wants to be a part of the campaign.
Lane Bryant controversy
There are some ‘conspiracy theories’ regarding Lane Himmelstein Bryant Malsin and the ongoing “I’m no Angel” campaign. Lane was born in March 1877 and died on 26 September 1951 at the age of 74. She was an American clothing designer who launched the plus-size clothing store chain in 1902. Today in 2019, the chain counts over 810 stores in the US, although none in Alaska, Hawaii, Montana and Wyoming.
This is what the controversy is about – some people believe that the campaign made to encourage plus-size women was only made to promote the Lane Bryan clothing stores. This might be the reason behind the campaign as the business has really become better for Lane Bryan after the campaign was launched – however, the people who have heard about the controversy believe that raising the confidence and self-esteem of plus sized women is good, regardless of what any secret goal behind it might be.
Personal life and relationships
Viktoria is keeping her personal matters to herself. She keeps away from social media platforms, which is a rare thing today, especially for a model. There is nothing known about her past or present affairs, and there are no controversies surrounding her love life. She is said to have been in a relationship with an older man in Russia before she moved to New York City – she is now more focused on his modelling career and it doesn’t appear as though she’s searching for love. This is, of course, if she hasn’t found it by now and we don’t know about it. However, Viktoria has never married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Likes and other interests
Being plus size doesn’t necessarily mean that you are not physically active – Viktoria is visiting the gym almost every day. She is an advocate for living a healthy lifestyle, and one can use her as an example – she mostly goes around New York City by riding her bicycle, and uses the city’s transportation only when she has to.
Viktoria is said to be a big dog lover as well as a big people lover – she has stated on one occasion how she would love to just go out there and meet as many different and unique people as she can. She enjoys travelling – the biggest trip she has ever taken to get to New York from Russia. She loves eating and trying out new cuisines – she is not on a diet, but is trying to eat only healthy food.
Appearance and net worth
Viktoria’s current age is not known but she is said to be around 30 years old. She has long brown hair and blue eyes, is 5ft 7in (1.7m) tall, weighs around 187lb (85kg), and her vital statistics are 44-34-46. She has an hourglass shaped figure, wears dress size 18, shoes size 8.5, and her bra size is 38FF.
According to authoritative sources, Viktoria’s current net worth is estimated to be over $50,000, steadily rising, and will keep rising as long as she continued with her modelling career.
Social media presence
Unfortunately for all her fans, Viktoria is not active on the Internet – we have only managed to find her Facebook page which is followed by nearly 1,000 fans. There is also a YouTube channel called “Viktoria Monas” which was launched on 27 November 2011 and has so far gathered over 1,500 subscribers.
