The Siberian 'Snow White': Albino girl, 8, with striking pale hair and porcelain skin is flooded with offers from modelling agencies
A little girl given the nickname 'Snow White' has had offers to become a model. The eight year old albino, known only as Nariyana, lives in Yakutia with her family. The other members of Nariyana's family all have black hair
An albino girl whose pale hair and porcelain skin have seen her nicknamed 'Snow White' has been flooded with modelling offers.
The eight-year-old, known only as Nariyana, was born in Yakutia in Siberia, and the other members of her family all have black hair.
Local reports have described Nariyana as 'strikingly blonde' with 'skin like porcelain', but despite multiple requests from modelling and advertising agencies, her mother doesn't want her daughter embarking on a career in front of the camera just yet.
These photographs of the Siberian 'Snow White' capture her dazzling pale features, including one which reveals the contrast between Nariyana and her 14-year-old sister, Karina, who has dark hair like the rest of the family, who are ethnic Yakuts.
Elena has said her daughter is keen to try modelling, but is focusing on her childhood hobbies of dancing and drawing for now. Elena told the Siberian Times:
'We have already got many offers from modelling and advertising agencies but I don't want her to work yet. 'She likes dancing and drawing in her free time. 'When she grows up, she'll choose who she wants to be for herself.
'When I ask her now, she says she wants to be a model.' Photographer Vadim Rufov said of Nariyana's striking looks: 'She is the most unusual person I've met.
'A Sakha girl called Nariyana. She is albino.'She is incredibly artistic and she spent two hours posing for me.'From the second we met, we started talking like we knew each other.
'Her eyes don't like bright light, but, despite this, pictures came out brilliantly. I love them.'
