Mira Duma is no stranger to the headscarf. The international style icon has donned a scarf many a time this winter season, working the fashion week circuit in printed silk scarves to top her covetable looks.
Here she is most recently at 2013 Paris Fashion Week as captured by street style photographer Wayne Tippetts (Left) and Vogue (Right). Classy is as classy does. A bit Audrey if we might add.
Here she is in Milan.
