From Russia With Love

As I'm going to Russia today I thought I'd give you a somewhat related post. I've only got a few hours till I have to leave for the airport so this post will be a little rushed.

I know Russia in general isn't very well known for its style, I blame the fake tan, tits/legs out type girls you get down the West End but I think Russians are finally becoming a bit more adventurous (in a non-tacky way) with the way they dress and people are starting to take notice. Being Russian myself, I don't feel like it most of the time (and defo don't dress like it), so I will be getting a few odd looks in my home town of St. Petersburg soon (mostly from family friends, passers by usually think I'm a tourist). I do like to keep up to date with whats going on in the Russian fashion world though. Mother brings back Russian Vogue all the time as its much cheaper there and I check this site called Look At Me more and more regularly nowadays. As I'm obsessed with street style of course the "Looks" section is my fav. I was pleasantly surprised to find a few well dressed people on there. It's a shame that it doesn't tell you where abouts in Russia they're from. My guess is Moscow as they seem to be a bit more fashion forward than the rest (their own Fashion Week and most indie Russian designers are impossible to find anywhere else). So here's my run down of the Top Ten Best Dressed in Russia (from the Look At Me site anyways).
