Petite perfection

Being dark-haired and petite, I've rarely found any role models in fashion that I religiously ogle over. Sure, Audrey Hepburn worked the little black dress -- but she was also much taller and could pull off evening gowns with much greater ease. Call it the self-reference effect -- for some reason, I could not consider anyone to be my "style role model" (if I had to define such a thing) unless she had the same build as me.
Luckily, I discovered Miroslava Mikheeva-Duma of Russian Harper's Bazaar this week. This petite and youthful fashion editor pulls off the most daring silhouettes to complement and accentuate her slightly curvy but very small frame. She mixes adorable innocence with classic sophistication -- from an assortment of Birkins to short satin dresses.

Did I mention that she's an economist?
