Sergei Polunin for i-D Magazine
The ballet star won notoriety in 2012 after disappearing from The Royal Ballet School just days before the opening night of his London show. Sergei has since go on to dance with The Stanislavsky Music Theatre and Novosibirsk State Academic Opera in Russia.
In the profile for i-D, when asked about modelling, Sergei said “It’s definitely a different world, it’s interesting, but you need to have another job. I don’t think it’s a man’s job to do just that. You have to be somebody and then do that on the side. I don’t think it’s a man’s job to just be pretty!”
