on the watch

With the constant openings of luxury stores, high sales volumes and evidence of grand wealth, Russia has been placed on the fashion map for a while. Eastern Europeans are increasingly keen on fashion and quite conscious of what's going on in planet fashion. If you're not so sure, just ask Gilles Mendel of J.Mendel who announced today that he is taking a trip to Moscow and meet with his loyal clients who contribute to sold out ready to wear and furs.
Therefore, it's no surprise to see chic Russian actress, Svetlana Metkina making the rounds at film premieres and other functions. Despite the fact that she is quite beautiful and healthy with a great girly smile, Svetlana has that "It" girl factor. I like her style and how is eclectic, but not over the top. She dresses exactly how someone in their 20's should.
Currently, she is in "Bobby", but I sense she might be getting more attention here. Also, I think it would be refreshing to see a new "fashion" girl without her being French or a muse to some big designer. Although there has been a progress in the field of editors who favor certain girls, for example the recent crop of many Chinese actresses, I hope there can be a spot for Svetlana. So, have your radar on for her.
