Ksenia Sukhinova from the city of Tyumen, gained the title of Miss World 2008. Natalia Vodianova, a Russian supermodel, is now very popular in the USA and in Europe. Masha Kalinina became Miss Moscow-1988 when she was only 16.
The streets beat the rhythm of thousands of high heels pounding the cold pavement – in Moscow every street is a catwalk, and its high fashion culture can come as a surprise to the flat-heeled foreign visitor. With no compromises made between style and comfort, Russian women dress to impress whatever the weather. Their essential uniform is glamour, fur and perfect make-up.
Regardless of how cold it gets, the streets of Russian cities in winter are reminiscent of a fur fashion catwalk, with a kaleidoscope of women in pelts of all sizes, colors and designs.
