With voting kicking off today for this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue “Rookie of the Year,” it’s going to be tough to narrow it down to one. But, as the rookie class grows, so does the difficult task of selecting a winner, and after catching a glimpse of Vida Sidorkina, the choice has just gotten even more difficult to make.
The 22-year-old Russian model began her modeling career at the age of 13 and moved to New York City four years later to further her career as a model. She hasn’t returned home since the move nearly five years ago.
If you’re thinking to yourselves that she looks familiar, it might have something to do with a little fashion show she walked the runway in…the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
