Between furiously packing for Russia (I don't think I've ever been so dumbfounded by a packing assignment... what do people in Russia wear? How much is a ruble worth? Will vodka really be that cheap? OK that last one is irrelevant, but really? It seems too good to be true) I thought it appropriate to acknowledge my preferred Russian beauty, Sasha Pivovarova. Here she is alongside some top notch musicians in one of my absolute favourite Vogue US editorials of last year; Almost Famous by Steven Meisel.
