Our regular WCW column sees us featuring our favorite female (and female-identifying) models of the moment. This week, we've got a special addition to our usual WCW featuring Ganna Bogdan from Photogenics, who appeared in SOREL's Fall 2016 lookbook.

Here she can be seen rocking a pair of SOREL cozy carnival boots, and answers our standard WCW questionnaire.

Did you always want to be a model growing up?

I wanted to be a painter.

How did you get discovered?

At my sister's birthday by her booker. She was a model at that time, and I was like 15.

Do you remember the first casting or go-see you ever went on? What was it like?

It was cool. I got some tips from my sis, so I wasn't really nervous.

Are there any models you really look up to or whose careers you'd like to have?

I love Erin Wasson, Sasha Pivovarova, and Kate Moss.

Tell us about where you're from. What's a fact about your hometown / home country no one knows? Is there a modeling industry in your hometown?

I am from Kiev in the Ukraine. We have a pretty exciting fashion scene over there. We have fashion weeks, and a lot of big magazines like Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle. Our young designers are doing pretty good on the international scene. When I started, I learned a lot about how to pose and be in front of the camera with Ukrainian photographers. There are a lot of very talented ones and we kind of grew together.

What do you like to do during your free time?

I love painting, and also editing videos I shoot.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I used to be a figure skater.

What are your favorite beauty/skincare/hair products?

I use Oribe shampoo and conditioner for my hair, Glossier face products and Eminence moisturizer.

What's your favorite way to style a great pair of boots?

A good pair of jeans and your boyfriend's t shirt.
