The Russians are coming…for Michelle Obama. Yes…really. Now even Russian fashion designers are dishing our First Lady. Like Russians, are known for style, grace and elegance? I don’t think so. Let’s take a look at some of the Russian designer’s schmatehs that were recently featured at Moscow Fashion Week. I am sure you will agree with me, that the Kremlin will continue to be known for vodka, borscht, and trading their girls on the internet and at modeling agencies. I mean…who has time to listen to this Russian nonsense? These designers are best served honing their craft and piping down. Yes, sure, they have the fur thing down, but they are best off leaving that shit in Siberia where those red-paint-happy PETA folks won’t dare go.
And to quote one of my heroes, Suzy Menkes, “Russian fashion is still searching for an identity in a world that has moved so brutally from Pravda to Prada. And it has not yet gained the international recognition that has made the country’s alabaster-skinned beauties, such as Natalia Vodianova, into the world’s current top models.” Don’t ya just luv hu?
So, let me get this straight Veronika, Michelle Obama is better off looking like one of those Marie Osmond dolls as shown here? I don't think so.
Kira Plastinina is all the rage, I know. But this look is something we did in the Mudd Club / Area era. And frankly, we don't need a 15 year-old, Russian chick to tell us what is worth rehashing...and I mean rehashing.
Here we have Natasha (Badanov, which we now know means bad fashion) Glaskova. Next...
So, let me get this straight, Kalinka Morozov, is Russian based and this is the model she chose for her runway show? I guess she wanted to match up the house frau look with a house frau. Yowza, the only missing accessory is a mole on her chin.
Get this: Designer Denis Simachev was quoted in WWD that he was not wowed by Michelle. Perhaps she should wear his cheap crap (as shown here). Would that make him happy? And wait...
Denis designs for Manzies also. So should we heed his every word? Ochichornya, bro-lene.
Let's face it. When you think of Russian women, these broads come to mind. Based on that fact, the Russian fashion industry should focus on re-branding their image before dishing our lovely Michelle Obama, who surely has made a fashion error here and there...but nothing close to resembling these schmateh clad, scrub women.
