As one of the Russian It Girls and perhaps their unofficial leader, street style darling Miroslava Duma is more than just a pretty face with gorgeous clothes. Although these are the first things you see when photos of this pint-sized fashionista pop up online and in social media, further probing shows that she is also a brainy, ambitious, philanthropic woman who aims to make the world a more positive place for those who need it most. With a masters degree in International Business and administration under her (designer) belt, she founded Buro 24/7, a digital news and lifestyle website making everything from fashion events, celebrity recipes and news about the arts among others, accessible under one roof.
Her style can best be described as whimsical, daring, somewhat unorthodox but always has one unifying factor: impeccable fit–a tricky premise when dressing such a petite frame. Most Filipinas can relate to this dilemma–me included–and upon my first sighting of Mira, I immediately had an epiphany: it IS possible to look longer, leaner and taller just by having the right-fitting garments. And this not only applies to pant and skirt hems but to blouses, jackets, scarves, bags and shoes as well. Mira can very well be the poster girl for us petites and I’m so glad she’s getting the recognition she deserves while we reap the benefits of body type acceptance and looking sensational while at it. Here are her most memorable looks, in my opinion. Feel free to share your thoughts, too!
