>> Sasha Pivovarova has been a busy girl — in 2008 alone, she took 168 flights, such was the demand for her trademark stony expression, which the model describes as "cold and unreachable, like the stare of a sniper." The latest subscriber to her work? Giorgio Armani, who cast Sasha for his Spring 2009 mainline campaign, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott in eery, ambient black and white. But Armani isn't Sasha's only alliance — when she's not in the air or posing for the camera, she's working in her artist's loft in Brooklyn — her primary residence — on a book for Prada, which she hopes to have done this year: "It will be in the form of a scrapbook and include drawings, photography, and collages."
