Miss Russia’s Erotic Photo Career May Have Started at Perfect 10

MOSCOW — Sofia Rudyeva, who was recently crowned Miss Russia 2009, has a past that might make some adult entertainment industry pros wink: She recently modeled for Perfect 10.

“Yes, she posed for us,” Perfect 10 owner Norman Zada told XBIZ. “I’m not sure she got her start with us, but it is possible.”

The fact she posed for Perfect 10, rumored yesterday by the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper, created even more attention for her, particularly after an erotic photo shoot for Life.ru that was published on Sunday.

The 19-year-old was picked among 50 Miss Russia contestants. In addition to the title and the crown, Rudyeva received a $100,000 prize, a trip to Stockholm and the opportunity to participate in a photo shoot for a cosmetics company.

Zada said he didn’t remember too much about the model, but he was surprised when he heard that she won the competition. “It’s fairly big news,” he said.

Russian tabloid media reportedly have been hunting for other possible nude photos on other online adult sites, besides Perfect 10’s and Life.ru's, with no such luck.
