Here's a full interview in Russian from which that clip is taken.
http://fashionweek.kiev.ua/interview-irina-kravchenko/ I'll try to translate some main points.
  • She's received a lot of job offers since she did the Prada campaign.
  • She didn't know much about fashion prior to starting her modeling career. She met a lot of people during the fashion week and when they would see her again and be like 'hey, great to see you again,' she'd reply that she was happy to see them too while at the same time trying to remember who they were.
  • She was told that she'd be opening Wang a couple hours prior to the show. She didn't even realize how special it was. She was just too worried about falling down or slipping. When she first went to Wang casting, he wasn't there. When they first asked her to try on a look, she slipped while walking and thought it was gonna be it for her. She has since done a lookbook for his namesake brand and they called her to model some old Balenciaga archives for him after he got the job there.
  • She's only been given Balenciaga pieces so far. Was promised some from Wang, but hasn't received those yet. Said Balenciaga is the best when it comes to giving models free clothes. They just bring the model into the room and let her pick from the racks. She picked this gorgeous dress that she thought would go well with some shoes she had. However, she forgot those shoes at Dior casting and when she went back the next day, they were gone.
  • Still can't believe all this success. Says she came to New York without any specific goals set; didn't really set out to achieve great success, but she went to all the castings she could and was just being herself. Doesn't know how long she'll be modeling because of how fickle the business is with the rises and falls. She will stay with it to see how far she can go, but told her mother agent to let her know when the business is no longer interested in her, she'll go do something else.
  • She has a degree in Interior Design. She taught art in school briefly after graduating and before taking up modeling.
  • Her hair color is not natural.
  • She can't be serious backstage, that's why all the pictures of her laughing and acting out. Unless she's tired, then she sleeps.
  • Her most recent shoot was for an American publication, shot by Craig McDean, styled by Karl Templer.
  • Most famous person she met during the fashion week is David Beckham.

Reading the interview was a joy. She's very self aware and has a great sense of humor it seems.
Thank you)

Those close up beauty shots at Missoni (the last four pictures) are absolutely killer.
