Whilst browsing the Tatler Russia site, these photos of 4 impossibly beautiful women popped up and grabbed my attention. With the exception of one, who is sporting a strange choice of accessories (more on that later), they are all impeccably dressed and enviously stylish. What’s more, their styles are all completely individual of one another. The four women are (l-r): Miroslava Duma, Ulyana Sergeenko (who showed a collection in Paris herself this week), Elena Perminova and Vika Gazinskaya. All were photographed on their way into the Jean Paul Gaultier show. Be warned, this is just a glimpse into what these girls are capable of. They have serious style and they aren’t afraid to show it.
Miroslava looks good anyway, but what makes her outfit is the back. An unexpected feature which brings this out of ‘stylish’ and into high-fashion. She should be congratulated on her perfect choice of accessories, hair and make up too. I know of a few people who could use her expertise in that particular field…
Ulyana’s look is by far the bravest of them all – how many women can pull of a gothic black veil and still look better than everyone around them? She is the picture of elegance and refinement in this dress, which nods to a big trend for next season, exaggerated hips.
Like Ulyana, Elena is on the ball with next season’s key trends by choosing a humourous and zaney print. The juxtaposed flower and stripes is very Preen Resort 2013. The midi length suits her tiny frame and her bold necklace polishes the outfit off well.
Possibly one of the strangest feats of accessorising seen at PFW was Vika’s use of a Nike cap and trainers. They seem an odd accompaniment to an extremely feminine bow-detail white dress. Maybe it’s an homage to Wimbledon and a show of support for her countrywoman Maria Sharapova. However, there is one good thing about this particular choice, it detracts attention away from her awful necklace which as it turns out is made of paper. Well played, Vika.
Here are some more examples of how they’ve been nailing it during PFW:
