Privet Festive Matryoshka’s!!! Imagine how beautiful this time of year is when Christmas lights shine brightly on Russian and Ukrainian streets. Think of the snow on the ground setting a picture perfect scene, reminiscent of a holiday card. I would like to wish all of you who are celebrating today a Merry Christmas! I hope you all enjoy your day, and to mark this special occasion I’m including beautiful images from both Russia and the Ukraine around this joyous time of year. (I’ll also be wishing my Orthodox Matryoshka’s a Merry christmas come January 7th).  + Hoping these pictures put you in the holiday mood in case it hasn’t reached you yet!

Elena Perminova’s look At The Bolshoi Theater



Last night Guerlain House invited guests to the Bolshoi Theater, gathering familiar faces (Vika Gazinskaya, Olga Thompson etc) for the premiere of the opera “Don Carlos”. The Russian beauty, Elena Perminova was wearing a black dress and peplum styled belt in brown, very flattering for her figure.
