Some girls dream about becoming a princess, others, like Kira Plastinina, dream about becoming a designer. So she did. And at the ripe age of 16 has accomplished what most would hope to do so in a lifetime. With 49 Kira Plastinina stores in Europe, the incredible teenager has opened up 7 stores in the US. DISCLAIMER: Papa Plastinina is a Russian billionaire, making his own fortune off of JUICE.

Regardless of her obvious luck in the socioeconomic sphere, Kira has a drive and determination far beyond her (16 OMG!!) years in the guise of pink and glitter. You can check out a store in Manhattan (594 Broadway) and in LA (116 S. Robertson) amongst others. Or visit her online at
