Fashion of First Ladies of Russia: Wifes of Russian Leaders From Kruschev to Putin

A collection of Russian first ladies, from Khruschev to Putin and them compared to foreign leaders wives.

Nina Kruscheva – wife of Nikita Kruschev. She was dressing very simple and it was justified inside USSR, she looked like millions other Soviet women. However when she travelled abroad her look was pretty shocking.

Western media compared her to a village relative when she was meeting Kennedy wife.

She was not following any fashion tendencies. Here is she with Eisenhower wife.

However she was not a “village relative” – she was able to speak three foreign languages, and was pretty pleasant person.

    Back in the late 60s, an American menswear company ran this ad suggesting that Premier Kosygin should bring his clothing up to date and make it better fitting. Don’t know what the Kremlin’s response was, but it probably would have stated that the New Socialist Man/Woman had better things to worry about than if his clothes fit or not.

    Is that Elena Ceausescu & Mrs Khrushchev …#2 ? Oh my….she wasn’t later brutally executed.

    Terrible… the bad, the worst and the ugly
    Mrs Hruschev looked like a nice babushka that grew up in a kolhoz and remained a kolhoznik all her life no matter how nice and how many languages she spoke.
    Mrs. Brejnev is next, followed by Ms ex-Putina, Ms Yeltsin and Mrs Medvedev. Only Mrs Gorbachev looked decent.
    Mrs Brejnew looks like her front teeth were metal clad… horrible, another kolhoz reminder
