The End of the Fairytale
Like a fairytale, teenager Ruslana Korshunova was rescued from obscurity in Alma Ata (Kazakhstan) by a fairy godmother/fashion agent who launched her on a career of runway shows and magazine covers. Yet despite travelling the world, this "Russian Rapunzel" felt lost and confused. This weekend, she fell to her death from the window of her ninth floor apartment in Lower Manhattan.
