Snejana Onopka - Essentials by Set Fall-Winter 2011 LookBook

Ukrainian model

Snejana Onopka (Ukrainian: Сніжана Онопко, born December 15, 1986) is a Ukrainian model. At the height of her career, she was known to be extremely thin, with a body mass index of just 14.6. She has somewhat gained weight since this period, which spanned from 2005-2008

Onopka moved to the Ukraine capital, Kiev, in 2001. While there, she was spotted by a foreign scout and thus began her career as a model.
In 2005, she appeared in campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana and Prada and caught the eye of Steven Meisel, who photographed her for two covers of Italian Vogue and for whom she is a "muse." Onopka has also been on the cover of i-D, Numéro, Harper's Bazaar, L'Officiel, Elle Ukraine, Akademia, CM, and the Portuguese, Japanese, and French editions of Vogue. On the runway, she is commonly seen at shows including Chanel, Gucci, Christian Lacroix, Fendi, Marc Jacobs and Balenciaga.
