Her nickname is “Ribka,” which means ‘small fish’ in Russian, and is what her boyfriend used to call her because she took long baths. Xenia attended modeling school and said the first person to take her picture was photographer Alexander Ustinov. From there, Xenia landed smaller modeling jobs until famous photographer Gavin O’Neill invited her to shoot. (Gavin has worked with magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Cosmo, GQ and Maxim). With her newfound exposure, she made a splash in the modeling world.
Xenia Deli has appeared on the covers of South African FHM, South African Sports Illustrated and Spanish FHM, among others. She has also modeled for Bare Necessities, Frederick’s of Hollywood and Beach Bunny Swimwear (after she won their 2011 model search.)
Xenia said the most fun she had on a photo shoot was “with Gavin O’Neill in Los Angeles. It was so exciting because it was my first real shoot…I was feeling so nervous about everything…and I felt so much adrenaline, like I was going to jump from a plane or something.”

Her favorite city in the world is Venice because “there is so much history and romance. I really felt like I was going back in time when I was there.” Xenia’s secret to feeling sexy is “I dance a lot. I love dancing, it makes me feel great, and sexy, and also keeps me in shape.” She revealed her idea of perfect happiness is “peace in my family, in my mind and soul.” And if Xenia ever wrote a memoir, she would title it “From Russia with Love.” Finally, she named Irina Shayk as her favorite Beach Bunny model.
Xenia Deli has appeared nude in some of her photo shoots, including issue #4 of “Lovecat Mag – The Women who Rock Issue,” as photographed by David Mushegain. Her recent projects include Playboy; she shot a cover with Bruno Mars.
Xenia stays in shape by eating right and exercising. According to her Twitter, she currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
