Aleksandra Igorevna Pivovarova (Russian: Александра Игоревна Пивоварова; born 21 January 1985), better known as Sasha Pivovarova, is a Russian model and actress. She is best known as the longest appearing fashion model for Prada, having been in 19 different AD Campaigns as of 2016 (a record Pivovarova has set for the brand).
As an art history student at the Russian State University for the Humanities, Pivovarova never dreamed of becoming a model until her friend and future husband, photographer Igor Vishnyakov, took photos of her in 2005 and gave them to international modeling agency IMG, thus beginning her career. After signing with IMG, her first runway show was for Prada, who then signed her to a three-year exclusive advertising contract.
