She entered the contest and she won their modeling contest along with a contract with IMG Paris and, later, IMG New York. “I’ve wanted to be a model ever since I was little, playing with my Barbie doll,” she told The Age. “It helped (for the catwalk) that I can dance but everything is self-taught.” Within six months of her win, Vyalitsyna had worked for Anna Molinari, Chloé and Sportmax.
