Who is Anastasia Kvitko?
Anastasia Kvitko is a Russian glamour model and social media influencer, who’s gained popularity on Instagram for her curvaceous figure and glamorous lifestyle. Born on 25 November 1994, in Kaliningrad, Russia, Anastasia has become a prominent figure on social media in recent years, with millions of followers on Instagram and other platforms. She’s noted for her 38-25-42 figure, and is often referred to as ‘the Russian Kim Kardashian‘.
Early life and career beginnings
Growing up, Anastasia dreamed of becoming a model; she was fascinated by fashion and beauty, and she spent hours watching fashion shows and reading magazines. However, her path to success wasn’t without its challenges. Anastasia struggled to find work as a model in Russia, where the fashion industry was highly competitive, and dominated by established models and agencies.
When she was 18, she moved to Miami, Florida, USA, hoping to launch her modeling career there. After a few months, she relocated to Los Angeles, California, however, she was faced with a lot of rejection from local modeling agencies, due to her plus-sized figure.
Determined to succeed, Anastasia began to focus on building her online presence instead. In 2013, she created an Instagram account and started sharing photos of herself in bikinis and other provocative outfits. Anastasia quickly gained a following on the platform, and her popularity grew with each post.
Anastasia’s popularity on social media soon caught the attention of brands and advertisers. She began to receive offers for sponsored posts and modeling gigs, and her career began to take off. Anastasia has since modeled for a number of fashion brands, including the swimwear company Eliya Cioccolato, and the clothing brand Fashion Nova.

Anastasia’s rise to fame has not been without controversy. Some people have accused her of editing her photos to enhance her appearance, while others have criticized her for promoting an unrealistic body image. There are also rumors about her having undergone multiple cosmetic surgeries to achieve her unique body shape – some of her critics claim to have found old photos of her, which show that Anastasia has undergone breast augmentation along with several facial cosmetic surgeries. Anastasia denies these accusations, claiming that her figure is a result of genetics and hard work at the gym.
In 2016, her Instagram account exceeded five million followers, and Anastasia caught the attention of mainstream media outlets, who started comparing her to the American starlet Kim Kardashian. Anastasia was quick to respond, saying that she doesn’t model herself after Kim, and that she’s ‘much better looking’ than her social media rival. Despite the controversy, the media attention only helped Anastasia grow her platform even more.
In addition to doing modeling photoshoots, Anastasia has also appeared in a few music videos. In 2018, she starred in the video for the song “Good Time” by Russian DJ Striptx, and in the following year, she collaborated with Alex Spite for his music video “My Heart is For You”.
Furthermore, Anastasia has briefly ventured into acting. She made her debut in the Russian mini-series “Kon’ Izbellovoy Masti” in 2019, and in 2022, she played the supporting role of Enchantress in the comedy movie “Plan 9 from Aliexpress”.
Social media presence
As of March 2023, Anastasia’s Instagram account, ‘@anastasya_kvitko’ numbers more than 12.4 million followers, while all of her recent photos have several hundred thousand likes.
In 2021, the Russian model launched her eponymous TikTok page, however, she uploaded only three videos before seemingly abandoning the platform for the time being.
In addition to Instagram, Anastasia is active on OnlyFans, on which her fans can access her exclusive photos and videos for a monthly subscription. Although her OnlyFans content isn’t distinctly more explicit than the content she uploads onto Instagram, being one of the biggest names on the platform, it’s estimated that Anastasia is among the top 1% earners on OnlyFans.
Hobbies and interesting facts
Outside of her modeling and social media work, Kvitko enjoys traveling and exploring new places. She’s traveled to many exotic locations, including Dubai, Bali and Thailand, and frequently shares photos from her travels with her fans on Instagram.
Anastasia follows a strict fitness regime to maintain her physique. She trains at the gym at least four times a week, and eats a balanced diet. She’s mostly focused on doing weightlifting exercises, aimed at toning her abs and lower body.
In 2017, the magazine “Maxim Russia” named her the third most beautiful woman in Russia on their yearly list. In a poll organized by the magazine, Anastasia finished right behind the singer and actress Natalya Ionova aka Glukoza, while the Ukrainian-born pop star, Vera Brezhneva, took the title.
Outside of the US and Russia, Anastasia has a very large following in Latin America. In 2016, she was a guest on the Mexican TV talk show, “Un Nuevo Dia”, which was also her first TV appearance in general.
Does she have a boyfriend?
Despite her social media fame, Anastasia is a very reserved person, and not a lot is known about her private life and relationship status.
In 2018, she was spotted spending time with the Formula One champion, Lewis Hamilton. The paparazzi caught the two at The Nice Guy club in Los Angeles, during Lewis’ private party. However, both Lewis and Anastasia denied rumors about them being romantically involved.
In recent years, the media has been linking Anastasia with the Russian businessman, Arseny Sharov, but neither of them has confirmed or denied the rumors.
As of March 2023, the Russian-born model boasts an impressive net worth of $22 million, due to her ongoing endorsement deals with high-profile brands such as Fashion Nova and Bang Energy. While her exact fee for Instagram promotions is undisclosed, some online sources have reported that it’s relatively higher than that of other models in the plus-size category, as a result of her massive following. In addition, Anastasia makes a portion of her income from OnlyFans.
