Privet Everyone, as you all know I’ve written countless posts dedicated to the Czarinas in the past. When Zaychishka Style was starting off I dedicated the majority of my posts to Russian/Ukrainian fashion, to the designers, history and of course the Style Icons. Now if any of you are unfamiliar with the Czarians (aka the Russian Fashion pack/ style icons) they are Miroslava Duma, Ulyana Sergeenko, Elena Perminova, Vika Gazinskaya and Anya Ziourova. However these ladies have come a long way from their stylish beginnings known for being in front of the cameras outside of Fashion Week. (And there lives have lead them in different directions so it’s not the same anymore! Although I’m sure some of them are still freinds to this day)
As for today I’m going to introduce you to some mysterious ‘Russians’ that I keep seeing all over instagram that are renowned for their style, enlarged pouts, plastic surgery, and large Instagram following. Many of these ladies are apparently models/ socialites that we hardly know anything about! I feel like a lot of these women are trying hard to market their ‘artificial features’ to become Instagram famous. What are your thoughts? Let me know at the end of this post. And yes, I apologize in advance that this is kind of a junkie post but it’s light reading, a little fun, and can satisfy your curioisty..since I know a lot of you out there seem to love my ‘Spouses of the Russian it Girls post’ (that manages to be a top post each and every single day for some strange reason). PS. This post just fits in to my ‘Fun post of the day’ section perfectly.
“Think shades of ivory, and cascading layers that draw from hippie and bohemian influence creating that boho chic look that seems to resurface every summer. I’m sure none of you are all that surprised to see the return of boho. But, Some of you might be surprised to know that whenever the bohemian style is involved, there is often a hint of irony lingering. The boho style never began as a fashion statement, in fact the style was often worn by women who were indifferent to fashion altogether. The bohemian style didn’t filter itself into the style scene until the women of the early 21st century wanted to discard their bourgeoisie reputation in favour of a spirited, raw, and nomadic style consisting of flowing skirts, and patterns with endless florals.
She’s tiny, and fragile in appearance and has had her fair share of ballet, but Sasha Luss never was the type who played with barbies, and never dreamed of becoming a model in her childhood. The Russian model’s career began in 2007 but it was the 2013-14 season that truly took her career to the next level. In the 2013-14 season Sasha Luss began her first big season on the runway for the Paris Haute Couture scene, and opened runway shows for No. 21, vera Wang, Emilio Pucci , and Alberta Ferretti.
Privet! I’ve finally made my Instagram account public in the past week. I started to put up some photos, so it’s kind of a sad instagram page at the moment. I thought it would be an idea I could easily commit to, and that is sharing photos that I take with my phones camera that are unique, pretty or unusual in my eyes (and such might not always have a place on my blog, but would be perfect for instagram + it could be something fun to share) My instagram was only ever used to keep up with all of the latest Russian and fashion news so that’s why it’s lacking in photos. Of course some old images will surface as well that have been featured on my blog. So there now you have one more personal layer to see of who I am (Zaychishka/instagrams’s :zaychishkastyle) and now I will be able to post any interesting fashion events live!!
Vika’s capsule collection for & Other Stories is still vivid in my mind, it was a collection that played with modern ideas, colourful polka dots, and became one of the most covetable collections of the season. Anyways let’s get to the point!! Vika must be working hard in her atelier as she posted a teaser on her instagram account featuring what could be in store for her next collection. So far I see that the fun silhouettes are back, with a few new inspirational twists, imagine far off lands, and colourful clashes.
The Armani boutique had an event to celebrate its grande opening at Nevsky, 152 in St. Petersburg, Russia on December 3rd. Czarina Elena Perminova attended the event and was seen wearing an Armani outfit with bright red lips.
Elena Perminova’s life looks incredible from all of the beautiful photo’s she puts up on instagram, where she showcases her elaborate wardrobe. Sometimes she’s flaunting her outfits on parisian balconies, or at swanky couture fashion events. Her style keeps me interested, not many can pull off her daring looks.
