She’s barely 20 years old, but Yasmina Muratovich is no amateur. Since she was spotted by an agent five years ago, the leggy Russian beauty has built quite a résumé, having walked for Prada, Valentino, Chanel, Giambattista Valli, Alexander Wang and Elie Saab, among others. And, oh yeah, Miles Aldridge shot Muratovich in Valentino couture for Vogue Italia when she was just 17. But it hasn’t all been glitz and glamour. The weirdest thing she’s had to endure? Posing in arctic temperatures wearing little more than a wolf mask (more on that later). With her killer gams, flawless skin and 5-foot-10 stature — “Everyone called me ‘giraffe’ in school,” she laughs — Muratovich is hard to miss.
