Meet Nadia Bedzhanova
ON HER MORNING ROUTINE
First two things I do in the morning are brushing my teeth and checking my emails. Then I go to the gym, if it’s not extremely hot outside.
on where she shops
on her personal style
I like sweatpants and black dresses. I go for simplicity, comfort & black, no extra thoughts.
on her beauty routine
I don’t have a beauty routine, but my favorite product is Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua. It makes the skin look perfect. I try to buy products that are made from natural ingredients and never overdo it. I also use MAC Lipstick and MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil. I also use MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara.
on her past and current work
I was working as a photographer in Moscow, but after graduating from university, I became more involved in filmmaking. So I moved to NYC, the place where every corner is so cinematic and the people are so different.
on Russian literature
Russian literature has the biggest legacy and I still enjoy reading classics, it’s timeless, and anti-utopia is one of my favorite genres. Gilles Deleuze - Cinema is one of the greatest books about art of filmmaking from a philosophical point of view.
on her favorite artist
Marlene Dumas is one of my favorite artists, whose essays I discovered recently. I bought her book in Tate Modern in London after visiting her exhibition.
on the social animal by david brooks
The social animal is an amazing sociological/psychological work written in a form of a fiction.
