    The fashion world once again bears the loss… Today media reported the death of a famous Russian top-model Olga Pantushenkova. She was 44 years old. As it became known, model, who in the 90s worked in Europe with major fashion brands, died of cancer in St. Petersburg.

    With the disease Olga struggled the last few years. Pantushenkova died on February 6, but only now her family confirmed this information to the press.

    Her successful modeling career started after she took third place in the contest “Supermodel of the USSR” in 1991. She was only 14 years old.

    Pantushenkova worked with Christian Lacroix, Christian Dior, Chanel, Kenzo, Cacharel, Valentino, Balenciaga, Ungaro, Thierry Mugler and others. Such famous fashion designers as Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano, were inspired by the refined aristocratic appearance of Olga.

    I remember her from the gorgeous Cacharel Eden perfume ad from 1994. Such a tragedy. May she rest in peace. Her poor loved ones.:( She was born to be a model.

    I remember her very well: I loved her presence in the Versace RTW FW 1994 show... a beautiful and elegant swan together with all the Supers... so sad news
