Stas Fedyanin, a 17-year-old man from Moscow, is building a successful career in fashion business as an international female body model due to an androgynous tall, slim figure that makes him perfect for the job. But besides his obvious feminine traits he is also praised for his talent in front of the camera.

Fedyanin said, "Model agencies like my face, they like my cool runway walk, they like strong character because I'm living in Russia". He commented on how Russians see him, "People in Russia don't understand my look, [or] my feelings, and that's really bad because people hate me in Russia"

Fedyanin started his model career when he was 15. According to his official web site Fedyanin has never had a plastic surgery and never followed any diet. Although Fedyanin has fans in Russia, some ill-wishers started disturbing him and even threatening the life of the rising star. He says that going out for him is becoming a bigger problem because of the Russian government's policy on homosexuality (although Stas is heterosexual). This is also, according to Fedyanin, because of negative public attitude to extraordinary looking people who are frequently called 'freaks'.

But in Europe, America and Japan, Stas Fedyanin is appreciated by model agencies and has a lot of business offers there. He's now getting ready for more than a month-long trip to Germany to take part in a series of photo sessions.
