Childhood Maria Kravtsova. Young model

Maria Kravtsova was born in Moscow. At three years old, the girl had to survive the divorce of her parents. My father came from a family, but my mother was never able to find a new man, investing all her strength and resources into her daughter. Whoever she did not work to provide her daughter with all the best: a hairdresser, a nurse serving in the district executive committee — such a load seriously undermined the woman’s health, but she did not give up.

Taking an example from her mother, Maria from an early age tried to take all the fruits from the tree of life. The girl was engaged in a dance studio, went to a music school, studied drawing and burning. It was hard to imagine how such a young person finds time and energy for numerous hobbies.

From childhood, Maria dreamed of defiling on the catwalk in bright outfits. As a rule, parents often oppose this desire, but Maria’s mother supported her daughter, did not dissuade and fear, and as a result led the 13-year-old daughter to a casting in the school of Vyacheslav Zaitsev models.

Throughout her student years, Maria starred in a number of commercials from well-known brands, as well as in Sergei Zhukov's clip “18 to me already”. In 2005, she became the host of the MTV Euro Top 20 music program. The television debut was successful - subsequently the model hosted such shows as “Style Guide”, “Five in isolation”, “Night Flirt”, “Elementary Sex”, “Baboon Riot”, “Shopaholic”, “Dancing Without Rules” and many others .

Having experienced the delight of playing on camera, she decided to learn acting. The beauty was quickly invited to episodic roles in the series “Kamenskaya”, “Club”, “Island of Luck”, as well as in the films “The Best Movie” and “8 First Dates”.

Marika Kravtsova: biography, childhood

Born in Moscow in 1985 on February 22. Her real name is Maria. According to the horoscope, she is Pisces. When our heroine was 3 years old, her parents divorced. Father quickly found another woman and started a family with her. Mom raised Masha alone. The woman disappeared from work from morning until late in the evening to ensure a decent life for her daughter. For several years, her mother changed several professions. She was a hairdresser, a nurse in one of the capital’s hospitals and an employee of the district executive committee.

Masha grew up an active and smart child. From the age of 7 she attended a music school and dance studio. And the girl herself enrolled in a circle of drawing and burning on wood. Our heroine took an example from her mother and tried to keep up with everything.

From an early age, Masha Kravtsova dreamed of a modeling career. At home, she put on her best clothes and defiled them on an imaginary catwalk. At 13, her cherished dream came true. Mom took her to the casting in the school of models of V. Zaitsev. The competition was great - more than 10 people per place. But Masha was able to pleasantly surprise the famous fashion designer. Vyacheslav Zaitsev appreciated her spectacular appearance, natural charm and high intelligence.

Modeling career

A teenage girl had to combine her studies at school, classes in circles and a dance studio with participation in fashion shows and photo shoots. But she was not going to abandon her goals.

In 2001, Maria Kravtsova won the title of Vice-Miss Moscow. After that, Russian and foreign modeling agencies literally overwhelmed her with offers of cooperation. She agreed with some of them. At various times, Masha collaborated with the following agencies - Modus Vivendis, Red Stars and President. Not a single fashion show in Moscow took place without her participation. Her photographs adorned the covers of various glossy publications (first Oops! And Fit for Fun, and after 18 years of Harper's Bazaar, Playboy, XXL and FHM).

Kravtsova often traveled abroad. She went on the catwalk with legends such as Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Andrian Lim.

Acting and television

Masha passed the program for grades 10-11 externally. After all, combining studies and modeling career was difficult. Kravtsova has a university degree in PR (public relations). The girl graduated from the RSUH.

In her student days, she participated in the filming of commercials. And the young beauty appeared in the video of Sergey Zhukov to his popular song “18 to me already”.

In 2005, Marika Kravtsova received the position of host of the musical program MTV Euro Top 20. She confidently stayed in the frame. Many viewers fell in love with her for her competent speech and a dazzling smile.

Until 2007, our heroine collaborated with MTV, conducted such programs as Style Guide, Night Flirt, Babi Riot and others. Then, representatives of the TNT channel made her an interesting proposal. It was Marika who they saw in the role of the leading project, "Dancing without rules." And Kravtsova agreed to cooperate. In 2010, the beauty returned to MTV.

As for Masha’s film career, she began in 2003. In the detective "Kamenskaya-3" she got a small role - the mother of "Joker". In the period from 2006 to 2007, Marika played herself in the comedy “Hello, I’m your dad!” And the series “Club” (seasons 1 and 3).

Kravtsova took part in the dubbing of the cartoon "Visit the Robinsons." One character spoke in her voice - Aunt Billy. The model and TV presenter also appeared in four Russian comedies - Plato, Lucky Island, 8 First Dates and The Best Movie.

Podium and TV

Understanding that you won’t walk on the catwalk all your life, Maria Kravtsova was looking for a new use for herself. She makes her debut as a host on one of the TV channels and appears before the audience under the unusual pseudonym MariK, which she willy-nilly had to choose in order to be different from the other Masha who worked with her. At first, Marik did not like the word, neither friends nor acquaintances of the girl, but then everyone got used to it. A television career for Kravtsova was also successful.

Despite the fact that she hosted many programs, among which there was one called “Elementary Sex”, as well as entertainment shows, Kravtsova did not think so. She said that she wants to try herself in a new role - a clothing designer.

Maria succeeded in everything, no matter what she undertook. The idea of ​​becoming a trendsetter was very bold with minimal chances of success. But for Kravtsova there are no barriers, and she takes up a new business. And although initially this step looked like a complete gamble, but everything went well. The TV presenter attracted even more attention. Then she will have many more collections and her own brand.

The broad creative nature of Kravtsova pulled her into the cinema. She starred in several small roles, among which there is the famous series "Kamenskaya". In one of the films she even played a prostitute. However, acting did not bring her either fame or popularity, and Maria continued to realize herself in other activities.

Clothes designer

At the end of 2007, Marika registered her personal clothing brand Masha Kravtsova. After that, the girl began to implement design ideas. In the spring of 2008, her first line of fashionable outfits appeared on the shelves of Moscow boutiques - “Yes. Yes. Yes. Yet!". Currently, she has released 8 collections of women's clothing.

Business lady

Kravtsova was able to turn her ability to cook different dishes into a business. She advocates good nutrition and widely promotes homemade food. For any lifestyle, Maria offers her own kind of menu where everything is balanced. The customer on the site can choose what he needs, and through the courier get food for the whole working day, it will only need to be warmed up.

It is very convenient for the client, especially when there is no time to cook yourself and look for the right ingredients recommended by nutritionists. Everything is thought out, it is better to consume carbohydrates in the morning, and protein - at dinner. This type of service quickly won regular customers and the new business for Masha became very profitable.

Maria basically does not buy her clothes. It goes in that which produces under its own brand "Masha Kravtsova". And this is not only advertising. Maria literally checks the quality of her products. Any woman can order on the Internet at affordable prices everything that she likes from the line of designer Kravtsova.

The presenter also became the author of her "Book of happy recipes," which she announced to all her fans. All tasters of her dishes presented in the book are alive and in good health, the former top model Kravtsova jokingly says.

Maria exposes all the events of her life, activity, recreation, playing sports on Instagram. Here she talks about many interesting and useful things. She learns what's new herself and informs her fans. For example, the fact that Panacota is translated from Italian means “cooked cream”.
