So only 4 girls besides Tanya have TFS threads:

^ Thanks for posting the links, I was wondering whatever happened to the other girls. It is a shame that for many of the girls featured this was really their only shot at seeing the world and getting out of the towns they lived in.

Thanks for posting this. I watched it last night. At first I thought it was a current film, like filmied in the last year or two, but it turns out its from about 2005. Interesting watch. Made me feel sad for all those girls, 99% of whom will never even get to leave the towns they so desperately want to leave. And sad that even the picked girls, only Tanya made it. They were all pretty, I thought. I especially liked Liza, the girl with one eye that she couldn't see on.

I also enjoyed looking at all the scenery and architecture.

And finally, I loved the fashion, mostly models' mom. I loved the all red look Marina's mom had on. And Liza's mom who had that blouse with that large collar.

This film was really, really interesting and very enlightening.

It was very sad, but also kind of a slap of reality, to realize that from thousands of girls who were prepped and scouted, made to believe that they might be plucked from obscurity to become the next big thing, only seven were deemed suitable for development. And of those seven, only one ever went on to become successful.

It makes you wonder where all those girls are now. Still working underground? Gone back to Russia?

But the most interesting thing for me was the "discovery" of Tanya. For those that haven't seen the doc., they basically said that ever since she was 11, they had been working/coaching her on what it would be like to model so that they could "Americanize" her mindset so that the culture shock when she started working at 14 or 15 wouldn't be so extreme. It kind of takes away the glamorous Cinderella story aspect of that kind of story and makes you realize that a lot of assimilation tactics must be utilized in order for small town models from developing countries to be ready to work.

Here's another source of that a little bored but overloaded with cuties from Russia (and one from Belarus) documentary. It will be only 5 (from totally 7) days online counting from today. It's second time online but again only for seven days and probably it may gone forever. TVN is Polish commercial tv station so that documentary is only with Polish lector but you can hear some English words too.

If you cannot watch it I have a good news - I captured it so I can try to upload it somewhere on request.
