Watch this woman recreate 100 years of Russian beauty in 60 seconds:

The Russian fashion scene is very young compared to others. It started in 1991 when the USSR collapsed. But it has quickly gained attention throughout the world because of the style to come out of Russia in such a short time.


We see the sweetness of the 1910s and the allure of the 1920s flapper. But between the 30s and 40s, it became simplistic in reminiscence of the Stalinist era. It's been described as "more austere and minimalistic, as the ideal of beauty becomes more about work productivity than sexual attraction."

But then we revert back to the traditionally feminine look, only bolder — the large buns from the 50s, the disco fashion from the 60s, and the wild hair from the 80s.

The hair and makeup get more familiar as we enter the 2000s, where the focus shifts to natural beauty. And we must say, red lipstick makes a bolder statement than any giant hair-do.


Now, the Russian fashion industry is leading globally. They are really making an impact on fashion trends.

This "post-Soviet style" is made up of a combination of vintage, 90s streetwear, digital culture, youth subculture, the neo-punk movement, skate culture, and Soviet history.

The streetwear consists of trenchcoats, blazers, acid-washed denim, leather jackets, and bright neon colors. They also wear traditional headwear, such as French berets and shrunken caps. Russian fashion is very DIY and technology-influenced.
