Early life and family
Anastasia Kvitko was born on 25 November 1994, in Kaliningrad Russia, so she holds Russian nationality, and her zodiac sign is Sagittarius. Her family still lives in Russia, while Anastasia had always dreamt of leaving for western countries. When a kid, she did a lot of athletics, but also dreamt of being a model, and even took some modelling classes in her teenage years.
Anastasia matriculated from a local high school in Kaliningrad in 2011. She never entered any college or university, as she moved to Moscow when she was 17 years old to pursue her modelling career, so she didn’t have any time for studying.
Starting the modelling career
When Anastasia was soon noticed by popular photographer, Anvar Norov, who saw her photos on the Russian social network, VKontakte. He suggested that she work with him, and in 2013 she started working as a professional model with local model agencies and photo studios. At the end of 2015, Anastasia got an offer from Kanye West Clothing brand, and moved to the US, also getting more offers from other clothing brands and companies.
At the beginning of 2016, Anastasia was living in Miami, but then moved to Los Angeles, however, she wasn’t forgotten by her homeland, where she was named №3 on the list of the sexiest Russian women of the year by the version of Maxim Russia – the popular singer Vera Brezhneva topped the list, not for the first time. She also signed a contract with Eliya Cioccolato, a popular swimwear brand, advertising their new cruise swimsuits line.
Appearing in the music video of IAmChino, Pitbull and Yandel
In July 2016 IAmChino released his music video for his single “Ay Mi Dios”, which earlier won Lo Nuestro Award for Urban Collaboration of the Year.
Along with IAmChino, the video featured such popular rappers and hip-hoppers as Yandel, Pitbull and Chacal. Anastasia portrayed IAmChino’s lover, who cheated on him while dancing with another guy and kissing him, being caught and captured by IAmChino’s friend. According to the plot of the video, jealousy made IAmChino murder his unfaithful lover, so Anastasia’s character rested in the bath at the end of the music video, with IAmChino praying over her body. The video hit 570 million views on YouTube, and helped Anastasia develop her modelling career. She was also invited to the talk show “Un Nuevo Día” to share her emotions from working with IAmChico and Pitbull, and also appeared as a guest in MTV’s show “Wild’N Out”.
Instagram sensation, dubbed “Russian Kim Kardashian”
As soon as Anastasia moved to the US, she started her Instagram account, posting explicit photos on her profile, and in a year attracted more than two million followers. She used her social media profile to sign more commercial contracts, with such brands as FashionNova Curve, XibionAmerica, and many others.
As Anastasia’s curves looked much like Kim Kardashian’s form, they two beauties were compared very often. Anastasia admitted she liked Kim, yet she was sure they can’t be compared at all: ‘I like Kim Kardashian but I don’t quite like being compared to her – she is far behind me’, Anastasia said without scruple.
The reason for such a brave statement was simple: Anastasia still insists she hasn’t undergone any plastic surgery. Her curves made a lot of model agencies take her down, as she didn’t want to become slimmer just on their request. On the contrary, Anastasia is proud of having such curves, and refused to change.
As of May 2020, Anastasia has almost 11 million followers on her Instagram account; her popularity helped her to sign a commercial contract with Bang Energy fitness products brand, and by the end of 2019, Anastasia became an elite model of the brand.
Did she actually have multiple plastic surgeries?
Several plastic surgeons have refuted Anastasia’s claims of having a ‘purely natural body’.
According to the experts’ opinion of a Russian surgery center, TecRussia, Anastasia underwent multiple plastic surgery operations, as doctors compared her photos from 2010 with the current shots she posted on her Instagram account: ‘It is clear that Anastasia had at least two, and probably even more plastic surgery procedures on her breast, as the size she has now is far bigger than she had back in 2011, while the skin has to adapt to the size change of the implants in a couple of years’, the experts commented on Anastasia’s photos. The surgeons also doubted her having natural hips, as comparing her photos of 2012 and 2016, the difference is dramatic, and was obviously achieved with the help of plastic surgery: ‘We really doubt that Anastasia achieved her form only by exercising consistently in the gym, as she could change the form and the relief of her lower back, however, she would never be able to change the size of it as much as she did, allegedly only working out.
The photos of Anastasia enjoying her spare time on the beach also made her followers doubt her words – a lot of cellulite and loose skin made them think she doesn’t work out as much as she claims.
Anastasia hides any information about her past or current relationships, and she hasn’t been noticed in any affairs so far. She once mentioned in the comments to one of her Instagram posts that she was fully focused on her career, and didn’t want to spend her time on relationships as she was too young to build a family. A relationship without becoming a family in the future is not for her.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Since Anastasia insists she hasn’t had any plastic surgery, she claims her curves are the result of a proper healthy diet. She doesn’t eat any meat or chicken, though she hasn’t mentioned if she eats any seafood. Anastasia avoids fast food and products with confectioners’ sugar. She goes to the gym four times a week. Her idols are Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian, even though she hates being compared with the latter. Anastasia once told Daily Mail UK that she was robbed when she was living in Miami. Being threatened with a gun, Anastasia doubted she made a right choice leaving her homeland and moving to the US, however, when she recovered from the shock, she understood that it was just an incident, and it was not her fault.
