How Did Ependieva Acquire Such an Unusual Beauty?

Albinism is the absence of coloring pigments melanin in the skin, hair, and iris of the eye. This genetic mutation makes a person possess white skin and very light hair.

Heterochromia is a condition where the iris of the light and left eye have different colors. This is due to the iris of one eye containing more melanin than the others.

So, one eye can be blue and the other brown. The condition doesn’t affect one’s vision. Instead, it makes one’s appearance exceptionally unique, just like with Ependieva.

While Arsakova got to know Ependieva through a photoshoot, there’s still more she’d like to find out about her.

She says:

“Unfortunately, it was not at all possible to find out details about the features of her appearance.”

“I hope that soon, it will be possible to arrange a new photoshoot with Amina and chat in a relaxed atmosphere.”
