Pivovarova slips into full holiday mode while taking in the spectacular sights of Barcelona from the rooftop of Antoni Gaudi's Casa Batilo, in the grounds of Park Güell, or while pausing for a Café con leche in the city's majestic Gothic Quarter. The twenty-nine year old veteran model is in her element having previously studied art history at the Russian State University of Humanities and being an artist in her own right painting and sketching in her free time. Pivovarova's illustrations have been featured in Paris Vogue, the New York Times, Vogue China, and in exhibitions at Mansion Grand in New York and in Paris.
