Model Drops Loaded Gun On Russian Catwalk

A former spy agent has taken to the catwalk with a loaded gun.

Former spy agent Anna Chapman made her catwalk debut yesterday at Russia Fashion Week, causing a stir when she dropped a loaded gun onto the runway.

Wearing a fur-lined jacket and black leather trousers by Russian designers Ilya Shiyan and Yana Rudkovskaya, Chapman strutted alongside a male model, holding a gun to his head before dropping it at the end of the runway.

Although the stunt was part of the show, it alarmed KGB veterans in the audience, with one telling the local media that Chapman’s glorification of the weapon was unacceptable.

“For a special agent, a gun is part of your profession. It is sacred and such a careless attitude to it is simply unacceptable.”

Chapman was unmasked by the US FBI last year in reportedly “one of the biggest investigative scandals since the Cold War“.
Since being exiled to her native Russia, she has stripped off for Maxim magazine and is rumoured to be starting her own TV show.

In the meantime however, it’s likely she’ll serve as a Russian MP, representing Prime Minister Vladimir Putin‘s party.

“The first time we ever kissed was right around Valentine’s Day–we were in New Orleans on tour. So, yeah, I always think about that because it’s unbelievable that we’ve been able to stay together. I feel so proud of us–it’s one of my biggest achievements,” she said.

Stefani, 41, also talked about how Prince really affected her songwriting process. “Prince, who is one of my idols, gave me some advice when I worked with him: “Have you ever just tried writing a hit? Like, don’t just try writing a song, try and write a hit song.” I remember him saying that and me thinking, Yeah, you’re right. Why would you write anything else?”
