At 16, Ekaterina earned another leading role in “Publication”. During this time, Ekaterina graduated from the prestigious Burda Moden modelling school. She began competing in pageants, earning second place in the Elite Model Look competition, as well as a finalist in the Miss Russia competition.
At age 17, Ekaterina Fields was asked to represent Russia in the Miss World University pageant in Seoul, South Korea. In 1989, she won the title of Miss World University. Gaining attention from entertainment industry professionals, Ekaterina began branching out into new projects.
