Meet Roger Vivier’s new muse
Introducing Miroslava Duma, Russia’s most in-demand style setter.
In the blink of a fashion season, Miroslava Duma, a former Russian Harper’s Bazaar editor and founder of the fashion news site Buro 24/7, became a street style staple. Her diminutive frame, whether draped in Gucci, Stella McCartney or Lanvin, has become the ultimate “get” for fashion houses who know of her sartorial—not to mention social media—impact.
Just ask Roger Vivier, which has made her the latest face of its Spring 2014 collection, Vivier's Codes. In addition to lending her doll-like visage to brands from Chanel (as a brand ambassador) to Salvatore Ferragamo, Duma is also the digital media director for the Russian department store TsUM (Russia's answer to Saks Fifth Avenue) and a model represented by Next Paris.
“These kitten heels from Roger Vivier are elegant and sophisticated— perfect for business meetings.” A “working girl” herself, Duma selected Roger Vivier’s patent leather Virgule featuring a low heel for comfortable, long workdays. It is a perfect pop of color for women wanting a sophisticated heel without sacrificing their feet.
“I love walking through Central Park in NYC in my Converse sneakers. They make me disappear in the crowds, lost in my own thoughts.” Another comfortable, colorful shoe Duma loves are these Chuck Taylor All Stars. Stop by Neiman Marcus to pick a new pair of sneakers.
