Like, The Youngest Fashion Mogul Ever. Totally. And Paris Is Her BFF

Kira Plastinina has a multi-million dollar Russian fashion empire: more than 30 stores, supplementary lines of perfume and lollipops, and Paris Hilton (who inspires many of her designs) in the first row of her latest show. And now Plastinina, who's all of fifteen years old, is taking her show on the road to America, with plans to open 10 stores in NY and LA.

Her garments run the gambit from sweet (a cute printed hoodie) to apoplexy inducing (high-waisted hot pants) to head scratching (a pink dress that looks like a zip-up ski parka?). She's the modern Russian equivalent of Contempo Casuals and 5-7-9.

Despite the temptation, it wouldn’t be fair to dismiss her because she’s a teenager (though the fact that her business was conceived, funded, and directed by her deep-pocketed father tells its own tale), or for designing according to her point of view — she hasn’t lived long enough to acquire the sense of elegance or whimsy that mark the top designers.

It's possible that as Plastinina grows up, a maturing point of view will change her design philosophy. Until then, if you're old enough to drink legally, you're probably old enough to know better than to wear hot pants.

You can find more of her designs on her Russian-language website
