Citizen of Maryland Kristina Bordyugova has won the title of ‘Miss Russian Beauty of America 2009’.

A Montgomery College student, 21-year-old Kristina is originally from Moscow. According to Itar-Tass news agency, she also gives classes in ball-room dancing and works as a model in a catwalk agency.

The beauty contest coincided with the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which attracts millions of tourists from around the world to Washington DC.

“Millions of tourists don’t even realize that the real cream of the Russian Washington is blossoming right in the Russian Center for Culture,” said one of the jury members Evgeny Agoshkov.

Kristina Bordyugova will represent the US in Moscow this April at the pageant of Russian community members abroad.
