Hi y'all! Hope everyone is doing fine. I'm still without my precious laptop due to this volcano eruption drama (service is still waiting for some details to arrive). Looks like Iceland causing troubles not only to British and Dutch investors, but also to all people in Europe - directly and indirectly. Some of my friends were affected directly - like R or E, who can't get back to UK (but actually they are happy) or V - here's her FaceBook status: "Been driving in car all night from Monaco to ulm now in train to Berlin from then trough Warsaw to Riga! Had no sleep at all feel mega exhausted!". OMG, looks like volcano drama is over for me - just got sms from service, that my lap top is ready!!! Yay.
Ok, now back to fashion related stuff. Everyone, who has access to Latvian fashion and fašon media, might have noticed two beautiful models - Beate Stivrina and Māra Kampernova. They are literally in any article about RFW or [MOMENT] - it`s like you open a weekly newspaper or a magazine, and you go: "oh, hi Māra, hello Beate". And I guess there is a reason for it. No doubt, that Latvian girls are very beautiful and more and more people start to recognize it. Models like Ginta Lapiņa, Ieva Laguna and Marta Berzkalna are now faces of major brands and can bee seen on covers of Vogue, but Katarīna Karlīna Caune is our up-coming model.

Beate Stivrina and Māra Kampernova might be not as popular in the world as girls mentioned above, but they are really beloved in Rīga and have a special place in Latvian fashioistas' hearts - every time they walk on a runway public applauds, regardless presented outfit. Any model has his/her nickname. I guess that Māra and Beate still don't. Let Stuff'n'Style take a responsibility for it.
Māra's nickname could be Magnetic Eyes - she's beautiful and has nice-fit shapes, which is a must for any model, but what distinguishes her from another models is her eyes and the way she looks. Very vibrant and powerful eyes, once she`s on a catwalk all eyes are on hers'. I'm certain, that if she wanted, she could kill with her look.
You see Māra's eyes even from far. RFW AW 10/11
Beate could be also knows as a power walk. The way that Lady walks is simply amazing, she walks flawlessly, really royal and any dress on her becomes a treasure. Pity that some designers have no f clue, what`s Beate capable of, and make her walk slowly (that happened many times on the last [MOMENT] week) which is very painful for me.

Well and to finish this post here some scans from Harper's Bazaar Russia April issue. BTW this issue is very interesting - interview with Anna Molinari and Kate Moss, exclusive photo session for Russian Harper's Bazaar with Chloë Sevigny and really funny and witty photo session inspired by Almodovar's famous movie scenes.
Chloë Sevigny as Alice in the Wonderland. How original, both models choice and "inspiration"
Sonia and Nathalie Rykiel. Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown <3 and her hairdo
Jean Paul Gaultire and Mariacarla Boscono. Entre tinieblas.
That's all for today. What do you think of nicknames for Māra and Beate?
