Daria Zhukova

Monday, 01 September 2008

Daria ZhukovaA couple of years ago, this girl was well known by spiteful paparazzi only. She lived in London, attended social events, studied a little and a little engaged in business. There is nothing special. Well, unless that of her love affair with Marat Safin. But could that be called a "serious" affair? Well, was there anyone that had a serious affair with Marat? And then Dasha took away one very rich man, Roman Abramovich, from his family. Perhaps it is fruitless to criticize Roman Arkadevich's marriage with madam Zhukova. But the portraits of the rival in love were gleamed on all the pages magazines. She is a simple public figure.

Daria Zhukova was born in 1983 in Moscow. Her parents divorced shortly after her birth and the mother took her daughter to the U.S. (Elena Zhukova was offered to continue her career as a microbiologist). First, the mother and daughter settled in Santa Barbara. Shortly after, Dasha got used to spend her school breaks in ski resorts in Colorado and went to school in Los Angeles. Here, she met Christina Tang, a classmate who later became her business partner. In LA Daria adopted the habit of not eating farinaceous food and dairy products. She also acquired a special American accent. Zhukova is stylish in the American way: she wears Chloe Luella in the daytime and wears YSL and Prada in the evening.

At this time Daria's father developed his own business. Today Alexander Zhukov (according to information from the Ukrainian media group "Zavtra", his real name is Alexander Shayyaborhovich Radkin: he adopted his wife's last name) is a major player in the field of Russian natural monopoly. The Sintez Holding, which he organized, was well absorbed in the Russian and Ukrainian markets, and its founder lived in London and in Sardinia. There was even a small scandal in 2001: a certain transport of 30 thousand Kalashnikov automatic rifles, 10 thousand grenade launchers, 11 thousand anti-tank missiles, 400 anti-aircraft missiles and 32 million cartridges. And as if all these were carried into the zone of military operations, and such transport was not one ... But it later turned out that the European prosecutor's office was wrong.

Nevertheless, Zhukov always loved his daughter apart from active business. Therefore, in 1993 he invited her to live in London (at that time, he was already a subject of Her Majest). Dasha became well accustomed with her new environment, and according to her, she already feels equally comfortable both in Moscow and in London...The heiress made friends with other children of rich Russians. In fact, it is not a secret that the children of oligarchs grow on the fertile ground of the obscure Albion. In London Dasha lives in a penthouse owned by her father. Information on Zhukova's education is scant: obvioously, it is not so interesting as love affairs. However, there is information that she studies homeopathy at London Institute of Naturopathy. Truly, it is unclear when she manages to find time for the study because by her words, "I have been living a high society life since when I was sixteen years old".

Like many other children of Russian oligarchs, Daria sooner felt an ineradicable attraction to design and even created her own clothing brand. It is because of its promotion that she appeared on the pages of the Russia's Vogue in the Kova & T clothing (short form for Zhukova and Tang last names). Zhukova's business partner, Christina Tang, was a daughter of the Hong Kong billionaire and owner of Shanghai Tang brand. In the last few months, Daria Zhukova's design business is rising. Her clothing brand is in high demand among Englishwomen. This is, of course, largely connected to Dasha's sudden scandalous popularity. Kova & T dresses are sold in 83 shops worldwide. Drew Barrymore and the Olsen sisters are now hot fans of this brand. Dasha Skinny jeans are the most popular among buyers. It costs about 200 dollars.

And finally, about the most piquant news: the first paparazzi "documented" meeting of Roman Abramovich and Darya Zhukova: it took place in Barcelona in February 2005 during the Champions League match in which Chelsea football club lost to the Spanish champions by 1:2. It seems since then, they have been together.
