Kiira in February 2010 issue of "Gloria"

I already uploaded these to the Forum, but in order to have the files stored also in this site, here they are again. There is an altogether 6-page article of her in this Finnish women’s/fashion magazine (+ cover). The article is mostly about Kiira’s presence in media, peoples’ perception of her, her image – also with a fashion viewpoint. Overall tone is quite positive, at least neutral, but there is very little input from Kiira herself – it doesn’t include proper interview, just few quotes. The pictures, however, are very nice – although to my liking, too much photoshopped.
