The Avenue, Where Models Live
Smart is so Sexy #SISS
Business Type - Model
Kataxenna Kova. My name is Kataxenna Kova, I'm 25 and I was born and raised in North London. My family is Polish, Russian with a hint of Italian but I've always been UK based. I started out as a fitness model in my late teens, mostly wearing bikinis and very little else, before moving onto glamour and fetish. I always loved latex, corsetry and eccentric clothes so moving into fetish fashion was a dream. It's the genre that I most enjoy and it allows my personality to shine through.
LG. Five years from now, where do you see yourself?
Kataxenna Kova. Hopefully playing in a band, doing what I love, generally happy and content with life. I may still be modeling or I may have moved on to other things. Completing a Masters degree would be awesome but I would rather put things that can wait on hold and live my dreams while I'm young :)
LG. What Type of Model would you be considered?
Kataxenna Kova. It's difficult to say. I no longer do much fitness modeling but would still consider going back to it (though I would have to up my work out just a bit! haha). I would most probably have to say that I'm a glamour/fetish model.
LG. What is a big pet peeve of yours from the industry?
Kataxenna Kova. The shallow, bitchy side of modeling doesn't appeal to me whatsoever. There is a lot of back stabbing going on and a lot of negativity that it is best to stay clear of whenever you can. I'm personally not a bitchy person and am really not interested in getting involved in that sort of thing.
LG. What’s the secret of you looking
Kataxenna Kova. I don't always look glamorous! I love to work out and exercise and when doing so, I'm sure that 'glamorous' is the last word that could be used to describeme :) I think it's important to look after your skin, your body and yourself in general whether you're modeling or not. A lot of girls I meet have very bad skin from sun exposure/over tanning and try to simply fix the problem with botox etc, which in turn actually accelerates the aging process and isn't a long term solution. Looking after your skin in the first place saves so much money in the long run and it's small things like healthy skin, a good complexion and healthy glow that contribute to making a woman look glamorous or 'beautiful.' Not expensive clothes and crazy amounts of make up.
LG. What is your ultimate goal for your career?
Kataxenna Kova. My ultimate career goal would be to work as an anatomist or to get round to finishing my Dietetics qualification and opening my own clinic. Modeling wise my ultimate goal would be the cover of American Playboy. While some models may say Vogue or Elle etc, I've always loved the American soft porn industry so Playboy would be perfect. Some people may look down at that but it doesn't bother me.
Kataxenna Kova. After coming out of a long 6 year relationship not long ago I am now seeing somebody new and am very happy :)
LG. Where can our audience see more of you?
Kataxenna Kova. If you Google me or my old modeling name Kamillia Kova (Kamillia is my middle name) you will find various links, sites, info etc. Magazine wise most of my current work this month is for music magazines.
LG. What advice do you have for young women, trying to get in the industry?
Kataxenna Kova. Remember that modeling has a shelf life and it is not something that you will do for the rest of your life, so it's always important to have a back up career. You have to think about what you're going to do in the long run. Enjoy it while you're young but remember to also be smart and think ahead.
