Dear ladies,

If you are a fashion ( and instagram ) lover than you must know about the longtime companion of Russian oligarch and billionaire media magnate Alexander Lebedev – Elena Perminova.

Her style is elegant, inspiring and chic.

About fashion Perminova says : “When I was nine, everyone wanted to be a princess at Christmas, but I dressed as a baby chicken. I realized it was important to have a personality. Otherwise you’ll be lost in the crowd.”

“On my very first trip to New York, Alexander said, ‘Please go to Bergdorf and buy something,’ but I was so impressed by the clothes, I couldn’t make up my mind,” she recalls. “So I bought jeans and wore them with his hooded sweatshirt and his huge Stephen Webster cross. [While I was] walking around, everyone looked at me—and I started to understand what I wanted and how this outfit was best for New York. But I could’ve bought a Dolce gown!”

“My day-to-day wardrobe is rather modest; I prefer to collect books rather than clothes,”

“Russian style has changed a lot,and thank God. In the past it was so much about labels. Everyone wanted to show that they were rich. I never liked that.”
