Model Bodyguard Killed in Moscow Carjacking

OK, so this is a very sad story, and the poor woman is dead, but it's WAY too Moscow not to highlight from the Russian news this week.

Russia's most famous female bodyguard Anna Loginova was killed after failing to prevent her own Porsche being carjacked. The glamorous 29-year-old died after clinging on to the door handle of the Cheyenne and being dragged along the street at high speed as the car screeched away.

Loginova ran an agency for female bodyguards, some trained by the ex-KGB, to give discreet protection to Moscow's billionaires and their wives and mistresses.

Loginova was a famous Russian model before venturing into the security business and had shot advertising campaigns for BMW, Chanel and other world-known brands. She took Jujitsu lessons and mastered sword handling. Afterwards, she opened her own security firm staffed exclusively by beautiful women.

In a recent magazine interview, she insisted that she and her team of glamorous bodyguards gave better protection than the more traditional beefy male security men.

"I do think that a girl should be a girl, not a Terminator," she said. She posed semi-naked for a Moscow men's magazine to make it clear that she was feminine as well as good with a gun.

She was highly respected for her bodyguard skills. "A normal man gets sick and tired of male bodyguards around him all the time," she said.
