I guess all of us have a muse that is worth imitating, that gives us unbelievable power, that inspires and pushes you forward. For someone it is music or musicians, for someone - great artists or poets, for someone - powerful people, for someone - fashion, for someone - nature. Where do we find ourselves?
This post is about my muses. I do not want to call them "icons". One of my muses, former Editor-in-Chief of Russian Vogue, Aliona Doletskaya, once said that in English "style icon" sounds good but in Russian it has other meaning and I agree with her. (Btw, I am Jewish but I still respect other religions) So, meet my muses, mio inspirazione.
She is great. She is really, really, really great. She did a lot for the most influential fashion magazine in Russia and left it for new which I think will be as great as Vogue was in her times. I like her thoughts, share opinions, she is mature, educated, smart, elegant, confident, successful woman.
Once I saw this journalist (such a shame to call him like that but unfortunately can not find another word) and his TV program I could never get enough of it. This man inspires me with his simplicity and his complexity, with his life experience and his thoughts, with his views and his opinions, with the way his talks and the way he smokes cigars. Actually, once upon a time two muses met each other to have a cup of coffee and to talk - Aliona Doletskaya interviewed Vladimir for Vogue issue. Worth seeing. You will understand why both of them are muses.
