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 WangMarc 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.

Marie Claire’s written a not-so-nice review of Posh’s latest poses for Marc Jacobs’ line.

The report comes after an announcement that the designer’s campaign will not feature VB next season.

Victoria Beckham has struck another set of bizarre poses for Marc Jacobs’ latest advertising campaign. 

The Spice Girl has already been shot with her legs flailing from an open carrier bag, poking out from the top of a box, and wearing a series of unflattering looks, including a dark blunt fringe.

The latest set shows a dishevelled Posh in a net-skirted black gown, with a grubby looking tan and oversized pale blue gloves, which look more suited for doing the washing up
