Random Thoughts - Sasha Face

I love Sasha Pivovarova and all the interesting facial expressions she makes on the runway.

EDIT: Speaking of Sasha, some of you may know that she is also an artist. She was recently enlisted by Chanel to create an illustration for a show in Moscow (below).

The Russian model says that she was "inspired by the joy of seeing fairytale characters coming to life in one of the main theaters of Moscow, the city where I was born."

I've seen some of Sasha's work before and I quite like it. However, all her subjects seem to bear an uncanny resemblance to herself and it makes me wonder if this is a drawing style she purposely developed or if the extent of her drawing ability is self-portraits.

What do you think of Sasha's illustration for Chanel?
