While she might be known for her modelling and Instagram fame, Mimi Elashiry is more than just her 834,000 Instagram followers—she’s also a classically trained dancer. A back injury a few years ago halted her dancing career, and saw her modelling career take off. Now, she’s combined her love for both, for the launch of Pandora Rose—a new collection with a unique blend of metals that combines to form a pretty blush hue. On her partnership with Pandora, Elashiry explains “I’ve always loved dancing and the freedom of expression through movement… I was always told I couldn’t be a model and my dream has always been to combine my passion of dancing with modelling. That’s why I’ve partnered with Pandora. I want women to express their personal style and celebrate their own individuality and talents”.
So to celebrate, Pandora created a bespoke life-sized jewellery box, which Mimi will dance on top of today in Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall (as the world’s first life-size jewellery box ballerina). We spoke to Elashiry and asked her about how she wears the ballet trend IRL and what jewellery means to her.
