Reuters is reporting that 20-year-old supermodel, Ruslana Korshunova, known for covering Elle and Vogue, has apparently committed suicide.
All we ask is “why?”
A 20-year-old woman identified by local media as Kazakh supermodel Ruslana Korshunova plunged to her death from a Manhattan apartment on Saturday in an apparent suicide.
Police said only that the woman was discovered dead in front of an apartment building in downtown Manhattan, near the financial district and the South Street Seaport tourist area.
Korshunova had graced the covers of European editions of Elle and Vogue and walked the catwalks for designers including Betsey Johnsonand Jill Stuart.
Witnesses described seeing her plunge from a ninth-floor balcony in the building on Saturday afternoon.
Local media, citing police sources, said there was no sign of a struggle inside her apartment and that Korshunova was believed to have leaped to her death.
A friend told The New York Post, however, that Korshunova had just returned from a modeling job in Paris and seemed “on top of the world.”
“There were no signs,” the unidentified friend was quoted as saying. “I don’t see one reason why she would do that.”
Korshunova, a native of Kazakhstan, had been profiled in British Vogue in recent years as a new face to watch, and she was featured in ads by Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs,Christian Dior and DKNY.
A spokesman for Korshunova’s agency, IMG, which also handles Heidi Klum and Kate Moss, said “We’re shocked and our heart goes out to her family,” the Daily News reported.

You probably won’t be able to.
At least that’s what Vera Wang’s saying.
In a Vogue interview, Wang indicates she’s not too concerned with the global credit crunch.
“Fashion is an expendable commodity, but it also brings such joy and fantasy and fun to women’s lives. For that reason, fashion will prevail ultimately,” says the New York-based designer.
Such is her optimism, she has confirmed her label is pushing on with the scheduled opening of various new stores this year.
“This plan was made about two years ago,” she tells HERALDEXTRA.COM. “There’s no question that many people in fashion have felt the repercussions of the recession. I’m thorough about looking at the sell-through. I feel fairly optimistic that by the time they get done, hopefully the economy will be on the rebound.”
Did you know that on average, a bride will try on at least 17 gowns and visit at least three different bridal boutiques before finding the perfect dress.
The most important thing brides have to remember is that the “ideal dress” is not necessarily the one a particular celebrity wore on her wedding.
And it’s not one that immediately says, “Cinderella.”
But the ideal dress is one that fits you best, according to your body shape, size and style. Read More »
