Kira Dikhtyar is an international top model, actress, former gold medal rhythmic gymnast and philanthropist born in Moscow, Russia. 


She became involved in rhythmic gymnastics at the age of 6 and eventually became a member of the junior Russian National Team.  In 2005 she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a fashion career. She has worked with photographers like Bruce Webber and Patrick Demarchelier and has graced the cover of Vogue, Glamor, In Style, GQ, Elle, Vanity fair, Cosmopolitan, Noise, Marie Claire, FHM and Maxim.  In 2014, Kira participated in the fashion reality show The Face together with the legendary models Naomi Campbell, Anne V and Lydia Hearst.


She was a close friend of Jeffrey Epstein and is currently working with Alina Kabaeva, Vladimir Putin’s long time partner to raise the legal sex age for girls in Russia. 


On this episode of Ritch in Life, Kira shares a different point of view on late friend, Jeffrey Epstein, without justifying what he did. They discuss the new rules for gymnasts at the Olympics, the fashion industry, her time on Oxygen Network's show, The Face with Naomi Campbell and her modelling career. They dive deep into her work with Alina Kabaeva to protect young girls from having sex at a young age and joke -but not really- on how Kira knows what men want and how her path intersects with everyone important there is to know.
