Biography of Natalia Poly (Polevshchikova)
As a child, Natasha was no different from peers. Like the other girls, she could not get past the newsstand, in the window of which there were pictures of “imported” fashion models, and tried not to miss one of those rare occasions when she, an unremarkable schoolgirl who dreamed of escaping from the philistine “dullness”, managed look through a glossy magazine abroad.
As a child, Natalia skied and loved very much when on the weekends their whole family went out into the countryside.
