Miroslava Duma Front Row @ Fall 2014 Couture Fashion Week 8

Miroslava Duma was a near-constant presence on the front row at Fall 2014 Couture Fashion Week in France this past week. The Russian style-setter showed a mild obsession for glorious capes and voluminous silhouettes which later made way for a trio of more feminine skirts and dresses—all perhaps a sign of the Paris weather, as well.

Look 1: At the Atelier Versace runway presentation, she bucked convention (being bold, body-con and beaded, as per Versace), she showed her curves via a geometric, tri-colour burgundy, black and white Tod’s Spring 2014 cape made casual via distressed, ripped and cuffed jeans and white pumps.

Look 2: Taking a playful turn at the Schiaparelli show, she debuted a Vika Gazinskaya Spring 2014 cape-like coat emblazoned with a whimsical flamingo and tree print. Prim black flats and a structured handbag added a classic touch to the boxy fun of the coat.

Look 3: On this occasion, she wore one of the designer house’s own pieces at the Christian Dior show, where her Dior Pre-Fall 2014 consisted of a metallic slate grey cape with gathered, exaggerated sleeves. Strappy black sandals, a pair of shades and a small clutch were all she needed in the way of accessories. Mira’s so petite, though, that this particular cape could fit two more of her inside. Is the silhouette too overwhelming?

Look 4: The cape crusades continued at the Giambattista Valli couture presentation where she wore a Delpozo Fall 2014 printed A-line number sans the runway’s original sheer lining.

Look 5: At the Chanel show, Mira might have worn her most impactful look of the week with a graphic, ribbed turtleneck sweater from the J.W. Anderson Fall 2014 menswear collection. She wore the statement piece over a blue shirt and skinny jeans, but really it was the massive red bib-like treatment that garnered the most attention.

Look 6: Returning to Tod’s for inspiration, she attended the Armani Prive show in a baby-blue cape with an exploded black and cream ethnic print was from Tod’s Fall 2014 collection. Nude Paul Andrews shoes disappeared into the background to let the pancho take centre stage.

Look 7: For her front-row seat at Elie Saab, Mira channeled her inner ‘60s schoolgirl—with a mod twist—in a Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 burnt-orange A-line skirt with pocket detailing and a blue patterned sweater set. A kitschy Louis Vuitton logo handbag completed the sweet-sassy look.

Look 8: Miroslava popped onto the scene at the Vogue Foundation Gala in a lively and colourful Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 look, characterized by a mini-dress printed in bold stencil florals and a sunny-yellow, patent leather blazer.

Look 9: Donning a Valentino Fall 2014 look at the Valentino show, she was chic in the glossy jacquard coat dress featuring a moodily colourful floral and butterfly pattern. You may recall that Blake Lively wore the same piece a few months ago.

    Wow, very varied looks. I like Look 8 best and the Delpozo look but with better heels.

    I loved Mira’s style a couple of years ago. It was chic and cute. This unfortunately looks too fashion victim to me :(
    Not very creative either, just being able to afford the catwalk pieces, she simply models them off runway. What do you guys think??

    • Noemi July 15, 2014 at 09:54 #

      I kind of agree with you, and I find most of the outfits very winter. Leather cape in summer? No.

    I was beginning to think she was pregnant until I got to the last looks. My favorites are the Elie Saab and Louis Vuitton.

    • dee July 15, 2014 at 03:03 #

      I thought she was too until the last few looks.

    • kimjustkim July 15, 2014 at 12:25 #

      +1

    • mm July 15, 2014 at 16:12 #

      I still think she is pregnant. Face seems fuller. The JW anderson look is my fav

    • faila July 15, 2014 at 18:43 #

      Yes. She is pregnant.

  4. Faye July 15, 2014 at 01:01 #

    She tries way too hard.

  5. Christine July 15, 2014 at 01:17 #

    Love Look 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9

  6. Pedro July 15, 2014 at 02:10 #

    Look 5: PERFECTION!

    I love it

  7. Kevinappears July 15, 2014 at 02:29 #

    I laughed at quite a few looks. She has a very small frame but chose to wear so many large pieces which did no good but made her look like a giant head doll.

  8. dee July 15, 2014 at 03:02 #

    I only like looks 8 and 9.

  9. Nat39 July 15, 2014 at 03:06 #

    Look 9 Valentino works best for her.

  10. easyBlake July 15, 2014 at 04:36 #

    She’s so petite, but I think the only true Fail is Look 3. That coat is just completely overwhelming her. My favs are Looks 2,5, and 8.

  11. jenny July 15, 2014 at 04:50 #

    Look 1 ,2 ,3, 6 and 8 were all flops.
    Look 8 seems to work but on her, I don’t know she cannot carry clothes , it looks like a joke.

    Proving not all fashionistas can wear and carry clothes, even editors are failing.

  12. Christy July 15, 2014 at 04:52 #

    The last two looks are my faves.

  13. Yeliz July 15, 2014 at 04:54 #

    The both Louis Vuitton looks are my favorites.

  14. Prudence July 15, 2014 at 06:07 #

    look 5 is epic, deserves a bdotw nomination

  15. alvaro_spain July 15, 2014 at 07:29 #

    Look 4, 7, 8 and 9

  16. Alina July 15, 2014 at 08:19 #

    Look 5 is my fave.

  17. Phoenix July 15, 2014 at 22:54 #

    poor thing is lost in her clothes.
    I like look 2, 8, 9. And 2 only because I love the pattern.
    She really blew alot of those looks. Shes a gorgeous woman (like nina dobrev pretty look), but she let the clothes overwhelm her here for the most part.

  18. Mix July 16, 2014 at 14:58 #

    Her style has been completely disaster but at least she doesnt wear those ugly platforms that Asian Hobbits really into

  19. towanda July 17, 2014 at 07:52 #

    look 3 is like a joke
