Olga Rodionov strips off Russian billionaire's wife bares all for naked art book
Russian billionaires have it all, from private jets and luxury cars to sports teams and huge mansions. But one of the country's richest men has taken great pleasure in showing off a different kind of wealth - his wife!
Sergej Rodionov (47), a banker and media tsar, had his wife Olga (34) photographed naked by one of the best photographers in the world, and then published the sexy pictures in a glamorous art book.
Star French photographer Bettina Rheims (55) shot Olga, a chat show host and mother of a 13-year-old daughter, in a French country house as a dominatrix, pin-up girl, Marquis and in both colour and black and white.
The Russian beauty is no stranger to posing naked in front of the camera, having stripped off for both her native Playboy and for the late legend of provocative photography, Helmut Newton († 83).
Her rich husband initially wanted to keep the erotic photos for himself, but liked them so much that he decided to share them with the world. “He likes to call me Galatea,” Olga said, “in reference to the Greek artist Pygmalion, who created a statue so lifelike that he fell in love with it.”
Her beauty is not the result of any artificial intervention: “My body is the result of hard work. I want to show that having kids, a marriage and work are not excuses for a woman to stop taking care of herself.”
