In the tale of Snow White she is said to be the fairest in the land, with “skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood and hair as black as ebony”, so the snow connection relates to her beauty and her skin tone.
But having never heard the fairy tale you’d probably imagine someone who looks more like 8-year-old Nariyana at the mention of the name Snow White, because the young girl seems to embody the name.
Albinism has turned her hair as white as the driven snow, and her pale complexion makes her look like Snegurochka come to life, plus she’s from Yakutia, Siberia, which is home to lots and lots of snow.
Nariyana posed once for photographer Vadim Rufov and the offers from modeling agencies started rolling in, but for now her mom wants the 8-year-old to enjoy being a kid and leave modeling until she has grown up.
