Iryna Olhovska's Modeling Jobs, Acting Auditions and Additional Experience
Iryna was born on the 27th of March in Kiev, Ukraine, into a family of engineers. She became the lead singer of the kids group «Businki», at age 5, where she performed for seven years touring many Ukrainian and European Cities.
At the age of twelve, Iryna began a professional career in modeling, which continued while she was attending university earning her local law degree. In 2000 she was the first runner-up at the prestigious Queen of Kiev contest. Her first main stream success came to her later that year, when she won the Start-New Faces competition for amateur models organized by the Ukrainian fashion magazine Eva, winning multiple photo shoots and a cover picture.
During the next few years Iryna regularly appeared on the pages of various popular Ukrainian magazines such as XXL, EGO, and PLAYBOY. In the summer of 2007 Iryna won the Lady XXL contest by popular Ukrainian men?s magazine XXL. During this time, Ukrainian PLAYBOY invited Iryna for a number of photo sessions, including the infamous sport calendar featuring FC Arsenal Kiev players, which made headlines in many media across Ukraine, Russia and other former-USSR countries. By the end of the year she was named as one of the top 100 beautiful girls in the world by Ukrainian Playboy. In 2008 Iryna was also listed as one of the 100 most beautiful people of the Ukraine, by the popular national tabloid MK.
2009 had a fantastic start for Iryna, as PLAYBOY USA named her as one of the top eight international playmates. Iryna was personally invited by Hugh Hefner to be a part of the international models shoot at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles. For the first time in the 55-year history of Playboy, Mr Hefner appeared on the cover of his magazine in the Ukraine, which also included Iryna. She was one of the featured models on the anniversary covers of PLAYBOY in Holland, Spain, Colombia, Mexico, Ukraine and in the special edition anniversary calendars released in many countries including Poland and Bulgaria. The photo shoot which included Iryna was published by almost every international edition of the magazine including PLAYBOY USA in March and April 2009.
While she is currently the face for some major advertising campaigns in Russia and in the Ukraine, her goal is to continue in the fields of modeling and acting while pursuing a career in music, which has been her dream since she was a child. Iryna continues to work hard on the release of her first music single.
