That is an awesome photo. I see the resemblance! And there's a lot of Mir in her face. It's unusual to see photos of women in jeans from that era and before. Or maybe I've been looking at the wrong photos. :)

Really, nail polish on her fingers? Now polish on her toes maybe, I do believe she did that!

Mir's fashion sense is inherited, I see. And what's is that bottle? Whatever it is, seems she has it all to herself. What a day that must have been.
