Alex Ovechkin’s girlfriend Nastya Shubskaya is a Russian model who, like most serious models, travels all around the world and gets to see stuff a lot of us never get to see. A good example would be the Burj Al Arab, a famous ultra-exclusive (read: expensive) hotel situated on a tiny man-made island on the coast of Dubai. The vast majority of pictures she posts on Instagram are pictures of herself, and she almost always has the same expression. It’s not the most exciting of accounts, but I’ve sort of come to expect as much from Russian models. You won’t see them smiling very often; or at least not Nastya. They tend to freeze up and affect an air of icy detachment.
Nastya has also taken a picture of herself wearing a t-shirt of Russia’s president Vladimir Putin in seeming support. I guess it’s the thing to do if you’re drawn to the macho archetype and can overlook the ocean of questionable decisions and actions he’s taken. Alex Ovechkin’s girlfriend Nastya Shubskaya has said “Each person has a place in which they feel comfort, tranquility, and harmony in themselves. For me it’s here” referring to Italy. While she was there, she took a picture of herself holding her hair and captioned it “always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them more,” which is an Oscar Wilde quote and a very confusing caption for someone whose job is simply to stay thin and stand in front of a camera. Phew, pickin’ up a lot of enemies in the ‘ole modeling business! After her jaunt to Italy, she returned to Moscow to be photographed in front of an old Jaguar. Nastya also does runway work and takes her little dog, whom she called a possum, along with her to as many locations as she can. Travel, snap a selfie, move on.
