Mainly because of language barrier, Russian celebrities are not widely popular abroad. But there are few who have won international fame, shine on world scene, but still call Moscow their home. Here is the list of the most popular Russian celebrities.
1 Sasha Pivovarova
2 Anna Kournikova
3 Maria Sharapova
Another tennis babe. Her crowning moment came in 2004 when she won Wimbledon at a mere 17 year of age. Off the court she is known for her looks. She often takes modeling jobs. The attractive blond often draws comparisons to fellow Russian Anna Kournikova, but her skills on the court are what set the two apart.
4 Natalia Vodianova
Natalia Vodianova spent her early life in a sheer poverty, selling fruits in the street as a child. Now, with campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Miss Sixty to her name, Vodianova is a true supermodel. She has done it all, from Vogue covers to big-name fashion shows. The media loves her not only for her "real" look, but because her story is so inspiring.
