Kulikova also served as the face of Marc Jacobs' Daisy fragrance for three consecutive years. More recently, she starred in campaigns for MAC Cosmetics, Jambox, and Moschino. Select editorial features include i-D, 032c, and Numéro, in addition to Vogue Italia by Meisel, and Sorrenti, and the iconic "Nobel Farewell" Vogue tribute in memoriam of late designer Alexander McQueen by Annie Leibovitz. She's also had the privilege of sitting for Arthur Elgort, David Sims, and Patrick Demarchelier, among others.
Off-duty, Kulikova is an enthusiastic futbol fan, and cites Spartak Moscow as her favorite team.
