After graduating from high school in Orenburg, Anna Linnikova entered the St. Petersburg University of Management Technologies and Economics, choosing the direction “Advertising and Public Relations”, however, in 2022 she changed faculty and entered to study as an art critic.

In 2022 she won the title of “Miss Russia”. Now Anna Linnikova will represent the country at two of the most prestigious competitions – Miss Universe and Miss World.

– I really like her. This is not my role model, we just have one type – baby face, when an adult girl looks like a child. This type, by the way, is very popular in Asia, so I always had a lot of work there. And the girl from whom I would like to learn a lot is the American actress and fashion model Blake Lively. She is beautiful, smart, funny, does business, – Anna Linnikova admitted.


The Russian participant of “Miss Universe 2022” assures that her heart is free.

– On a personal note, I have silence – there is not even a young man, – Anna Linnikova said in an interview. – Many people think: a beautiful girl, and even with a title – how to approach her? So no one dares to meet. And even in social networks, no one writes to me and does not call me on a date. And for me it is important that a man takes the first step. My dream man, first of all, is responsible: he said – he did. I have a dad like that. I want to meet a smart, kind, loving person who constantly strives for something more. And of course, it is important for me that a person be on the same level with me – financial, social. Equal or higher, so that I have something to strive for.

Russia won the crown of the Miss Universe contest only once: in 2002, Oksana Fedorova received this title, however, a few months later she abandoned it for the sake of studying in Russia. Since then, Russians have shown good results only in 2010 and 2012, when Irina Antonenko entered the TOP-15, and Elizaveta Golovanova – in the TOP-10.

This year, given the political situation, experts have no illusions.

– It’s nice to talk with Anya, the girl understands art, knows Russian culture of different periods – both pre-Mongolian and post-Mongolian, – Anton Paramonov, an expert in the field of beauty contests, said about Anna Linnikova. – Has been modeling since the age of 16, speaks good English. This is a big plus, because the participants of recent years, for the most part, could not even count up to 10. I think she will find a common language with the contestants. And what will happen next … It seems to me, nothing. But the girl will gain experience before the upcoming trip to Miss World: there, I think, she will have more chances.
