With full red lips, sky high heels, and a luxurious knee length fur coat; Victoria Bonya’s walking the streets of Sweden looking as though she’s never left Moscow. Is she confused? Has this jet-setter jetted off too many times to realize where she is? Highly unlikely. You see Matryoshka’s the Russian socialite loves her fur, and in this case Victoria Bonya ( Tv-Presenter who resides in either Monaco or Moscow) does too. Bonya’s look is what most imagine when thinking of the ideal Russian woman. She’s tall; yet still wears heels, maybe she wears an ushanka, and if not then she surely is wearing fur in your imagination; Fullfilling Russian beauty stereotypes-
There’s no denying that a Russian women loves her fur. Not Faux, Nor Fake. Real. Fur is the Russian woman’s second skin, for her, she’s not a woman “unless she has a mink pelt hanging in the closet”. Despite economic slumps, or the outpouring from animal right activist, the Russian woman will not sacrifice her right to a luxurious coat. Even the Russian socialites we’ve come to love for their style remain avid fur-wearer’s, in an attempt to be closer to Russia’s upper class. ( I can’t imagine a Russian without one[fur coat])
“It’s 100% an element of prestige, because even though a fur coat keeps you warm, first and foremost it opens doors to nice places, and that’s why many women in Russia wear them,”
Is this the image that came to your mind when you thought of Russian women in the past? what do you think about their fur addiction? + btw I do not own fur, nor wear fur.
