Fashion Spotlight: Ulyana Sergeenko

Standard

This week, the fashion spotlight is on the Russian photographer, designer, part-time model and Fashion Editor of Glamour magazine (Russia). For the past few months, she has been poppping up in almost every ‘fashion’ search for her immaculate style and since then I have been sheepishly stalking her.

It was her debut collection that first caught my attention and from there I was instantly directed to her personal blog (http://ulyanasergeenko.com/) and FB page (http://www.facebook.com/ulyanasergeenko). From her work and styling, I must tell you, what a talented ‘lady’ she is.

Frankly, more than her own designs, it was her personal style quotient and poses that fascinated me. Voluminous skirts paired with sheer-lacy tops, 50s/Audrey Hepburn-style wrap scarf teamed with a dress, or (as simple as) a white shirt tucked in high-waisted wide leg trousers – Ulyana beautifully juxtaposes the old Hollywood-esque fashion with the 21st century contemporary designs.

One might complain that she is a billionaire’s wife and thus has access to the best fashion labels in the world. But, then we can’t buy fashion sense. And let’s not forget, we have plenty other millionaire (and billionaire) wifeys’ who walk around looking like a trash bag. Bleh!

From my observation, Ulyana loves to accentuate her unique doll-like beauty with accessories. Like any other ‘girl’ we see her tick-tocking in high heels. But it’s her headgears that are always a topic of discussion. Though, she is blessed with beautiful long tresses, she loves to hide them under a big hat. Also, from what I’ve heard, she is famous for her extremely lady-like walk, which is full of grace and poise.

While one day you’ll see her floating around in a long gown, the very next day, you’ll see her pictures in a mini. It’s her continuous changing up that keeps everyone interested. Not a slave of trends, for me she is a mix of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe with a hint of SJP.
