From Kazakhstan to New York for an untimely death

Its very sad when you see someone who is so beautiful- and has apparently everything going for them - and they just throw it all away. This girl plucked from (Kazakhstan) and placed into Haute Coutre Central- had the life a lot of girls dream about. She was young and beautiful and had a great job. Wearing new pretty clothes everyday, being photographed and preened over - going to glamorous parties - appearing on the cover of the top Fashion magazines and living in an apartment in New York. Yet, she (apparently) suicided.


Depression, Anxiety, Stress, are all common place but can be hightened by a necklace of bad events. Things can become really fcuked up at times - and taking that bottle of cough medicine and a mouthful of assorted pills has just made it worse. Best thing to do is to call a good friend and talk about it. Or just go out take a walk, get a breathe of fresh air, (stay out of balconies or cliffs and don't go gun shooting) - you just need to detach and unwind.


Model's death in New York 'suicide'

The death of a fashion model who plunged from the ninth floor of a Manhattan building has been ruled a suicide.

The medical examiner's office said that Ruslana Korshunova died in the fall the afternoon before.

Korshunova fell from her apartment in the Financial District. The 20-year-old was a native of Kazakhstan who graced the covers of top fashion magazines.

Korshunova appeared in advertisements and on runways for such designers as Marc Jacobs, Nina Ricci and DKNY. British Vogue hailed her as "a face to be excited about" in 2005. Her break came when modeling booker Debbie Jones noticed her while perusing an in-flight magazine article about Korushnova's hometown of Almaty, according to the Vogue report. "She looked like something out of a fairytale!" Jones told the magazine. "We had to find her and we searched high and low until we did!"

Just for clarification, she wasn't "plucked from a backwater town in Central Russia"... she was from the largest city in Central Asia - Almaty, Kazakhstan.

It is not Russia.
