RUSANA YAKUBOVA: Photos by Andre Gabb

Good things do come to New York from Russia it seems, more often now more than ever.

They say Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder… Perhaps that is why it is her favorite drink (and Rosé wine).  Rusana Yakubova (another hot Russian) is an art dealer and model.  Prior to becoming an art dealer she studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute whilst modeling.  Recently relocated from Thailand to New York, she hopes to stay in all careers for the next several years (true New Yorker) and secretly wants to be in a James Bond film.  With looks and intelligence to match, she is a dangerous beauty in the big city.
