Soviet icon Christmas style: trendsetter TVPictolic
In the days when about the Internet, no one even could not think, and foreign fashion magazines were terribly deficient, for Soviet women was one important source of knowledge about fashion trends TV, and in particular, popular Christmas shows and films.
Mrs. Katherine (Natalia Selezneva) and Mrs. Monica (Olga Aroseva) — heroine of the TV show "Tavern 13 chairs" was perceived by the viewer in a special way. Soviet television showed let the comic in the story, but still foreign life. And hence, the style of the heroines was seen as Western and advanced. Dresses with sequins shiny pleated — it all seemed to the average Soviet woman real magic.
At the time, and leading members of the "new year's blue spark" were most often women of middle age and average build, so their outfits were regarded by the spectators very carefully.
The artists, presenters and just invited to shoot the heroes of labour always tried to discern the interesting details: fashionable cut-out dress silhouette, length. All this has long been discussed. Feature "as a TV" for many women became a sign of quality and style.
Appearance invited were carefully censored. Opera singer Evgeny Miroshnichenko was once cut out because she was wearing a cross on a gold chain. A religious symbol on Soviet television? This is simply unacceptable! As well as not allowed too vulgar and luxurious outfits.But still "Light" was a great opportunity to enjoy expensive jewelry and beautiful dresses, so unlike what you could see on the counter at the nearest Department store.
Of course, most attention was drawn to the main stars of the Soviet music. Their appearance was waiting the whole evening. A rare "Spark" without of Alla Pugacheva. In one of the issues she was even the host of the party. And her outfits with feathers, sequins and layers of expensive fabrics were often the most elegant for the occasion.
Outfits Edita has always been one for understatement and elegance. And it seemed that her elaborate outfits were created even taking into account that the transfer was shot on a black-and-white film.
Laima Vaikule has always known how to impress dress in the latest fashion. Her costumes seemed to be as avant-garde for Soviet viewers, as well as her performances.
And of course, a very important role was played by the films on the New year. For a long time, a real trendsetter festive fashion was considered Lyudmila Gurchenko in the popular film "carnival night". Even when she dresses new-look went out of fashion, many believed that this silhouette is best suited for Christmas holidays.
Well, then came the new year's film in the Soviet cinema: "the Irony of fate or With Light steam". Dress the main character by today's standards doesn't seem particularly elegant or stylish. But despite this, her character has become for many a real role model.And even today we have much to learn from her. For example, look at these large ornaments on the neck Nadia Sheveleva — this massive necklace again today at the peak.
