I’m currently in Moscow for the Mercedes Benz Russia Fashion Week.

On my first day I got to meet Karolina Kurkova in the Mercedes-Benz lounge.

The supermodel who’s career seems to be going from strength to strength is the face of the new Mercedes Benz CLS.

She looked stunning wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Resort 2011 beige lace dress with Walter Steiger nude pumps and a selection of Fenton/Fallon bracelets.

She told me that this was her first time in Russia and that she loves the vibe of the city.

The supermodel jumped at the chance to be the face of the new Mercedes Benz CLS because she loved the car. She enthusiastically told me that the car is, “Sexy, powerful, has curves like a woman and has a hint of danger about it.”

She loves to drive, preferring long drives outside New York City to sitting in Manhattan traffic.

The humble model loves being a spokesperson and a role model for young girls and women. She learnt her craft at the school of Victoria’s Secret, who taught her everything she knows about public speaking.

I found Karolina very engaging. It was like talking to a friend. She gushed about her husband and her young son, who she can’t bear to be away from for too long.

For the photoshoot of the Mercedes Benz CLS ad campaign she sported a fierce dramatic look. It was so dramatic that her young son didn’t recognise mummy with all that make-up.

She loving referred to the CLS car as “her.”

I guess the two bonded during the photoshoot.
