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.
Elena Perminova is taking Vogue Russia by storm by posing nude on the cover for the magazine’s September 2014 issue. The it girl who always wows us with her instagram selfies and incredible fashion sense is seen wearing a very long, fishtail braid, and even posted a photo from behind the scenes of her photo shoot for Hunger magazine- where she is seen wearing the same rapunzel style braid as on the cover of Vogue. I’m curious to see the rest of the Vogue issue!
Privet!! NYE is the perfect excuse to get Matryoshka’d up, and leave those around you with a lasting impression from one year and into the next. Makeup can complete your perfect NYE look, but sometimes it’s hard to choose what side of yourself to show off for the night: your sexy vixen side, the glamour girl or perhaps you want to be classy & chic- the point is the looks are endless.
Ballet has never reminded me of warmer seasons; seasons where flowers are in bloom, to nights when the heat makes it impossible to fall asleep. Ballet simply suits the mood of winter, when the ground is covered by frost, or thick blankets of fresh snow. Perhaps the ethereal white of the ballerina’s costume projects a look I perceive as cold, perhaps that’s my reason for a ballerina-winter association. Anyway, Vogue Russia featured a spread titled “Ballet & Drama”
Privet Matryoshka’s!! I’m obsessed with the look of the decor in the background of this photo, it’s so winter wonderland chic, perfect for celebrating a lavish couture evening. Speaking of chic, Miroslava Duma is stunning me with her outfit. (it matches perfectly with the theme of the evening), The couture event is a dinner to celebrate Vogue Russia’s 15th Anniversary. Congratulations to Vogue Russia for 15 wonderful years!
I love the details in this behind the scenes glimpse of Vogue Russia’s December 2013 issue, the spread features one of the oldest Parisian cabaret’s “Folies bergere”. The star attraction is Belarusian model Maryna Linchuk, who is seen in Haute Couture pieces by Elie Saab, Valentino, Dior and even features a dress by the Russian fashion designer Valentin Yudashkin.
Latvian Model: Ginta Lapina
This Ballet inspired photo shoot graced the pages of Vogue Russia one year after the film release of Black Swan. The shoot subtly drew from the film, using elements of seduction, and sensuality to derail the senses, which Ginta Lapina exuded said seduction with ease. Vincent Peters may have taken the photo’s years ago, yet the images are timeless. There are no white swans here…
