New faces rock, the series. Episode 22: Eugeniy Savchenko

20 mai, 2011

My name is Eugeniy Savchenko. 21 years old and I was born in Gomel, Belarus. It´s a very nice and small town (500.000 inhabitants) and I study phisics at Gomel State University of Francisk Skorina. In October of 2010 I   quit studying for modeling.

 I never thought about becoming a model. Once I just sat on bus stop and a girl came up to me and she asked me “Wouldn’t you like become a model?”. I said: “Why not?”. Then I went to Kiev (Ukraine) with a friend for Kenzo casting in “L-MODELS” (my mother agency). I am now in NY.

The best thing about modeling for me so far is travel and meeting very interesting people. Big experience and it’s good for my english skills.

In my first test shooting I posed for the lens of the ukrainian photographer Cate Underwood. It was very interesting and fun.

I like most  when photographer is good-natured and if I don’t understand something, he  can explain to me or show me posture which he/she wants to see through their lens. I don’t have any special preparation before posing to a photographer.

Unusual backstage´s moment: at the Jean Paul Gaultier show


It was on Jean Paul Gaultier show. I went to change my first outfit. I was wearing a big pant and nobody knew how to make sure that it wouldn´t fall from me. But I had to go to my next walk and finally somebody fixed it by pins and I here I went walking through the catwalk! A huge adrenalin!
The catwalks

Last January I walked for Dior Homme, Rick Owens, Jean Paul Gaultier. I liked most the Dior Homme´s backstage show: fun and  very nice people.
A fashionista?
Nope. I always wear same thing. I like comfortable and practical footwear and clothes. But clothes should be beautiful. I like Convers, simple jeans and t-shirt. I also like classical shoes and cardigan.

Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
I’ll just smile, say “Hi” and go.

Show biz, Success, Fame
Show business means big money. It’s good.

Male models got the same attention as female ones? Any inspiration for you becoming a model?

No. I think male models don´t atract the same attention as we see with female models.

I don’t have favorite male and female models that inspired me. I am my favorite male model :D
As a matter of fact, my favorite male is the russian model Danila Polyakov, the first male model who started a female’s runway show and shoot like a woman. But now he quit modeling.
My favorite female models are Sasha Pivovarova and Natalia Vodianova and Tanya Dziahileva.
Nobody inspired me for pursue a modeling career, but me.

Dating X Love:  Simple.
Sports: Karate-do.
Having fun: chilling out with my buddies, modeling and travelling. I like to drink some wines with my buddies in a Paris flat or restaraunt, if I have money.

Atracting someone´s attention: Just say hello or walk nearby.
The craziest (nastiest?) thing he’s  ever done in a summer time season: Nothing. The most craziest thing was when I drank a lot of beer with my buddies from St. Peterburg. We just went to the beach and drank beer a lot. After, we went to pick up some girls.

Fav body part and why: The Whole body of girl. I love girls.
