This is the Russian pronounciation, and she's from Belarus. Her surname is Дзягілева and that's why she's called Dziahileva in English (Dzyah-heel-yeh-vah; 'dz' as 'ds' in 'odds')

^Oh thanks, I was pronouncing it Coss-ee-ann-OH-va. Where does the emphasis go there?
And in Roslyakova too?

How do you pronounce "Iselin Steiro" and Zelyaeva?

In Kocianova the emphasis is on the first syllable and in Roslyakova it's Ras-lyah-koh-vah.

^well actually with Roslyakova the emphasis is on the third syllable (Ros-lya-ko-va). and Kocianova is more of a Ko-cia-nova.

I saw a video not too long ago in which Tanya says her surname as Dyagileva.

^ She actually knows Russian better than Belorussian (I have no idea why) so that's probably why she said so.

That's what I wrote.

Agree, the emphasis is on the second syllable.

Probably because Russian is one of Belarus' official languages and I think many Belarussians actually speak Russian better than Belarussian (Russian is often used in newspapers, on tv etc.) Still her 'official' surname is Dziahileva.

I always assumed that Iris Stubeggers name was pronounced eye-ris (i'm no good at phonetics so I won't even try), but it's the other way of pronouncing I

How do you pronunce Sophie Srej?
And I know this has been mentioned, but is Snejana's pronunciation with j as in jacuzzi or j as a y?

Also the label Givenchy - lot of my friends pronunce it like: Geh-weh-n-shi, but I hope it's just the french pronunciation?)

I've been wondering about this too! But in this video Isabel Marant pronounces it as 'Snej-ahna', so hope that answers your question!



Givenchy is pronounced 'zhee-von-shee' btw.
