With several fashion weeks hitting the Russian capital, RT managed to catch up with a bunch of fashion celebrities for expert advice on how to be stylish this season.
The first of RT’s guests was Canadian supermodel Jessica Stam, who visited Moscow for the first time.
Featured in hundreds of fashion campaigns, Stam has an impressive portfolio of glossy magazine covers. Designer Marc Jacobs even created the Stam bag, inspired and named after the model. Now she is the face of a new car ad, and attended Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia.
“If you see something and you like it, even if it is a little crazy, don’t be afraid to buy it, because that’s how trends are created,” Stam told RT. “Mixing different patterns and textures looks very nice. I have a very eclectic style myself.”
Another It-girl, Georgia May Jagger, visited Moscow for the fashion show by young Russian designer Kira Plastinina.
Plastinina has always been lucky to have international jetsetters in the first row for her catwalks, and this time it was the youngest daughter of Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger who supported the designer.
Jagger was very impressed by the Russian capital, though some of its fashion turned out to be a bit different from what she expected.
“I thought that everyone would be wearing fur and big fur hats,” she laughed.
The model told RT she was stunned by her Russian colleagues.
“It’s so amazing to see someone so young be so driven and be able to do university and all of the designing,” she said.
