New East stars among Dazed’s youth culture top 100

11 April 2017

Lumpen model Vsevolod “Sever” Cherepanov and actress Bria Vinaite have been named among the Dazed 100 — a guide to the figures shaping youth culture.

Bishkek-born Moscow-based Sever is a leading face of the Lumpen model agency and a veritable street style sensation. Dazed dubs him the “unofficial face” of post-Soviet fashion, and the 19-year-old has graced the catwalk for such big names as Comme des Garçons, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Lanvin and Junya Watanabe. Last year Sever launched his eponymous label — you might remember Gosha Rubchinskiy and Vetements stylist Lotta Volkova stepping out in his already near iconic Russian Mafia New World Order hoodie.

The Florida Project actress Bria Vinaite was born in Lithuania and now resides in New York. Beyond her acting career, Vinaite has gained huge Instagram fame with her weed merch business.

Vinaite is currently at no.20 in the top 100, with Sever in 45th place. To see them move up the list, you can vote for them on Dazed.
