Street Style—Miroslava Duma

If you follow street style at all, then I’m sure you’ve seen the tiny Russian beauty, Miroslava Duma. Although she’s just 5-feet tall, she looms large on the street fashion scene around the world and is photographed at every major fashion event. A former writer for Harper’s Bazaar Russia, she founded her own fashion site in Russia that is set to expand into the rest of Eastern Europe. She has a fun Instagram feed (@miraduma) where you can see her outfits, outtakes from her life, and scenes from her job, like expanding her site into Kazakhstan. I love how she plays with proportion, wearing oversize coats, jewelry and large color blocked dresses. She is also quite quirky with her choice of accessories and jewelry, donning large necklaces, hats, scarves, and glasses. She can switch from elegant Russian lady to laid back Parisian cool, but my favorite looks are the many mini-dresses she wears. Her clothes may be the latest looks from top designers, but she definitely makes each look her own. This little lady is one to watch, from here to Siberia and every fashionable place in between.
