Before Ulyana Sergeenko There Was….Lyubov Orlova

Privet! How are all of you? I was looking into a bit of history, and came across an actress and singer who was one of the women who influenced style in Russia. In fact she is known as one of the first of her kind who inspired women to look beautiful. There were times when the Soviet epoch had women thinking that beauty, or obsessing over ones hairstyle was “bourgeoisie”, and there was even a saying that went around that beautiful women “spent all of their time in front of a mirror” (which insinuated that they were not of the working class). However, that attitude shifted, and beauty salons all over Russia began to open. Anyways, back on topic,  before Ulyana Sergeenko, there was the beautiful, and timeless Lyubov Orlova.
