These specialists considered these pictures a work of art. It was on their basis that Christina Semenovskaya received a proposal for a contract with the agency Karin Models.

Every image she lived and made unique. Therefore, the fashion designer Kenzo Takado is Christine entrusted the demonstration of her latest collection before leaving the industry. And Christian Lacroix in 2002, after awarding the Order of the Legion of Honor, chose Semenovskaya as a model for his unique collection.

Most of the time, the industrious girl belonged to the fashion world, and her only novel ended in parting. Back in 1990, the model Christina Semenovskaya met the beginning producer Peter Listerman. The romantic story ended with a wedding. Soon the couple had a daughter, Alexander.
For a long time, Listerman and Semenovskaya seemed to be an ideal example for all. Together they attended social events, willingly giving out interviews. But after five years the relationship came to naught. The family collapsed. Christina herself for a long time avoided commenting on the divorce from Peter. And only after his scandalous statement she gave an interview to reporters. Judging by her words, the former beloved could not remain friends. It turned out that enterprising P. Listerman used his wife for mercenary purposes.
Symbol of the era
In 2004, Semenovskaya appeared on the cover of the popular European magazine Madame Figaro. This time, she was able to translate the image of Uma Thurman, created in the movie "Kill Bill". This was the last bright and noticeable work of a noble beauty. After that, she began to devote more time to the education of her only daughter, avoiding public attention.
The main reason for this was the change of epochs, canons of beauty and great competition. Keeping for the decade the title of the most charismatic representative of the world of beauty and style in the post-Soviet space, Christina had to give way to new faces. But a beautiful woman does not consider herself abandoned or forgotten. It will be difficult for novice models to repeat the success of a simple girl who could become a symbol of the epoch of femininity, uniqueness and beauty in the fashion world.
