If you follow cars, Instagram models, or rich stars, you may have come across Daria Radionova. For the second time in just over three years, she took an expensive car (that most of us already can’t afford), and covered it with Swarovski crystals! But who is Daria Radionova? What do we actually know about her? We dove headfirst into the Internet to find out all we can about her, and took a look at Daria Radionova’s Instagram for a few choice pictures.
Who is Daria Radionova?
Mark Ellwood of CNBC’s The Filthy Rich Guide, once described Radionova as “basically one part James Bond, and one part Paris Hilton,” and he’s not exactly wrong in that description. In terms of the James Bond part, despite getting so much press for her first Swarovski crystal-encrusted Mercedes, her Instagram, clothing line, and now a Swarovski encrusted Lamborghini, Daria Radionova is a bit of a ghost when it comes to her background.
So, Where Did She Come From?
We know that she is from Moldova, which is sandwiched right between Ukraine and Romania. She is 24 years old and apparently studied business management in London, England. Who are Daria Radionova’s parents? Very good question. When she was asked about her folks and the immense wealth that must come with them, Radionova simply stated that they are from Moldova and are business people. Her parents are more than likely well-off, as sending their daughter to school in England can be expensive in the best of situations. But sending your daughter to school and putting her up in a penthouse in Knightsbridge is really expensive! But exactly what school she attended and when she graduated are unknown.
So, how rich is Radionova? We think it’s best to say that she is super rich. Not exactly the most precise of terms, but given that details about where her initial wealth comes from haven’t been disclosed, it seems like the most accurate depiction. Radionova has expensive taste, and if her Instagram is to believed, she often indulges in her love of designer handbags and shoes. She started her own company called DRJACKETS. The lowest priced item we could find was around £800 GBP, or $1,083 USD! And then there are her cars.
Radionova first got attention by taking a top of the line, fully loaded, $68,000 Mercedes and spending somewhere around $20,000 to have the car covered with Swarovski crystals! To her credit, the car was later auctioned off to raise funds for a dog shelter that was burned down in London, as well as another shelter in Moldova. Her latest car, a Lamborghini Huracán, reportedly has a price tag of an estimated $203,225, and is also fully loaded. Radionova once again had her team of Russian jewel masters encase the car in Swarovski crystals; 1.3 million crystals to be exact! No matter what people think of the car’s looks, you have to admit that only the super rich can have something like that!
