  2. Her Maxim spread set a new record for retouchness. On the other hand, how pathetic is ‘Hollywood for ugly people’ Washington D.C. that a girl considered an average Moscow lady could be considered a new Bond girl?

  3. @Mr. X–it ain’t Washington that’s promoting the hell out of her. She’s promoting herself, of course, but Putin and the Russian media have also made her a poster girl–retouches and all. A good deal of the attention she gets in the US reflects fascination and puzzlement over the attention and prominence she has in Russia.

    Wait for my post later today on Putin and a not-so-average Russian girl!
