Ranya Mordanova was cuting a striking figure in all black looks for this series shot by Nikolay Biryukov.

With that influence in mind, Ranya is shown wearing the sleek styles of Alberta Ferretti, Chanel, Emilio Pucci and Dolce & Gabbana amongst others styled by Stella Gosteva in a setting of cardboard and stringed lights. Makeup was done by Marina Keri and hair by Ernesto Montenovo.
