Getting to know this fashion icon was, for us, a bit surreal. A street style staple at nearly every show, and always so effortlessly herself, she took our meeting at the Hôtel Costes. Heavy with old world atmosphere, and just steps away from both Place Vendome and the famed boutique Colette, it was the perfect place to shoot. From Russia, she fell in love with Paris and has been living there for 17 years now. Her down-to-earth-ness is evident in that she appreciates the quiet moments; The times she can walk through this beloved city and enjoy the beauty of what is around. The coolest piece of advice: “Always look to the sky.” #Elinahalimistyle
