Such a great topic this week))
1. Which celebrity (celebrities) do you look to for fashion inspiration?
I wrote about this once or twice - I adore Irish actress Katie McGrath. I love her style, I love her approach to outfits and mixing vintage, designer and high-street pieces of clothing together. And also I find her incredibly beautiful, so yeah, Katie is the first. I even own an online community for her fans. Also you can check out my Katie McGrath style blog)
I also like Rachel Weisz, Zoe Deshanel and Natalie Dormer a lot. And the funniest things - I have no admiration for acting talents of Sienna Miller, Keira Knightley or Rachel Bilson whatsoever, but I love their styles a lot)
2. When it comes to your own personal style, what inspires you?
My biggest inspirations now are all of the fashion blogs I follow. They are inspiring me to take risks, to dress up more, to find inspiration in different epochs.
3. How do you hope to inspire your readers?
That's the tough one. I don't actually know. I've started blogging more to challenge myself - to write more, to dress up more, to communicate more. If I'm inspiring anyone in any way, I am really honored.
4. Outside the realm of fashion who/what inspires you?
I've been inpired by my late grandma for all of my life. She was a great woman - really strong and independent, a doctor, a pediatrician. When she was a young girl, barely on the third year of medical university, she signed up to the army and went to the battlefield to save lives. She was immediatelly signed to the battle of Kursk - it's still remains the largest series of armored clashes. She went all the way to Berlin and saved hundreds of soldiers from gangrene. When the War ended, she went back to university and became PhD. Some people still recognize my mum on the streets and greet her with the words: "Oh, you're the daughter of the doctor lady! She saved my son...".
My grandma is my all time inspiration. And she also inspires me in terms of fashion - I wear a lot of her shawls and jewelry, and have a few of her beautiful dresses that need some altering.
5. And since Idol is ending… Which songs inspire you?
I don't know whether music inspires me in terms of fashion, but I love jazz - it always makes me feel more beautiful and feminine. I love almost all types of music, but jazz is that special style I always listen before going out with my friends or going on the date.
