Sure, for competitions, she is always impeccably made-up, but in her real life, she seems to prefer minimal makeup, and she never wears red lipstick.
For example, here's a photo from the competition in Krasnoyarsk over the past weekend which she, Uliana Donskova (2012 group Olympic champion) and Tatiana Gorbunova (2008 group Olympic champion). Zhenya looks totally fine, but the slicked-back ponytail, the chic black suit and nude makeup are all kind of low-key elegant.
|Uli, Zhenya, Tatiana|
We have a term for this--it's ZHENYALICIOUS!
For example, here's Zhenya looking smokin' hot at her birthday party today:
|Zhenya, Uli and Zhenya's fiance, Igor Musatov|
|Yana Kudryavtseva & Zhenya|
(Actually, I have quite a bit more to say about Zhenya's fiance, but that will have to wait for another post...Zhenya does look very happy, and mayyyybeeee he's not so bad after all...)
