SCS was dismayed to wake up Sunday morning to sad news that European Vogue cover model and Spring 2008 Cynthia Rowley runway diva Ruslana Korshunova, from Kazakhstan, had fallen to her death from the top of her apartment building on Water Street in Manhattan’s Financial District on Saturday. We first read about it here.
Even worse, officials are calling it an apparent suicide.
The girl had already appeared on runways for Cynthia Rowley, Lela Rose, and Marc Jacobs–and she was only 20-years old!
The fall is still under investigation. We can only hope that the reported struggles of young models dealing with constant traveling, weight criticism, loneliness, depression, and eating disorders had nothing to do with her death.
More news as we get it!
