Reminds me of the Hel-Looks website, they do this same thing, but in Helsinki.
Also, I like the photo of the older woman with purple hair!
OK….. What is this? An April fools joke? It’s NOT April.
As a moderator, you must ask yourself “do I want to put 15 (FIFTEEN!) pages of this out there for my readers to look at?”
Do you have a fetish for this or something?? Even the military stuff you only go a few pages (four? five?).
Do you really, REALLY, consider this to be as nice (or nicer) than the air show posts?
Fifteen pages. Really?
@george and @blowme, you guys are hilarious!!!!!
They should all be sent to Siberia! Oh dam they are already there!
Erm… IKEA is overflowing with 70s fabrics like that worn by Lena Yakovlevna…
My g-d Groovy place, i would love to stay there for the rest of my life!
And plus, Omsk is a very very beautifull city full of old monuments!
Ok we get it. But you are bringing up a good point though, what would Russians look like if they got more influence and pride from their own rich culture, drawing a line from Moscow and eastwards, to China even? As the bankrupt west sails down the sink, we will know eventually…
Akasha, you may be surprised, but most of them have not ever heard about hipsters and this fashion 😉
Well, actually these are mainly just poor people who look like they are having a tough time and trying to maintain their dignity. Should we be laughing at these people now?
It’s not funny, they have no money to spent on fancy clothes.
I think the point is that what we might consider fashion is someone else’s necessity. Also, they make better hipsters and aren’t even trying.
Russian babushkas reminds of horrible Helsinki fashion!
Overpopulation? Too many stylists, not enough eco-warriors.
Many of these people would not look out of place in the USA. And some of these women are pretty hot-looking.
I think they look pretty cool
I think they look actually pretty cool. Well, kinda.
wow, some of fhe grannies look like from Olga Gromova’s drawings! 🙂
Overall an enjoyable array of different style, no matter what others say.
Tamara Petrovna from page 1 and Alla from page 4 are my favorite ones. I would not mind spending a passionate night with them.
Seriously… These looks are fantastic!!! And they all clearly put a lot of thought into their outfits. I love it!!!
Say what you want. I stay with Veronica.
If there are any actual people from Russia that visit this website I would cordially invite them to visit the People of Walmart website if they are interested in researching true American culture and fashion.
Most of the older people on these photos are poor beyond any level of povertry. You’ve got to be extremely naive to consider them being stylish. They’ve just unable to buy clothes and too tired to take care of themselves.
they all look great IMO
yes, they are poor enough, but not ‘beyond any level of poverty’. they have enough to eat, and they don’t shiver at home when it’s freezing. soviet times taught people to make decent looks out of nothing – what we see here are the remnants of this knowledge
cool post. i especcially enjoyed cute old ladies 🙂
on the second page already moscow
the youngsters are all dressed weirdly.. the only people that are well dressed are some of the very old and a couple of the middle aged.. but that’s prob because they bought their garms during the Soviet times
Hipster or hobo?
Per shear number of fashion designers Omsk beating Paris,London and New York … 🙂
It’s odd youngsters dress oddly and pull it off, immaturity, lack of funds who knows. Olders dress this way and sorry to say it just dont look right, looks kinda like a tramp.
please go to youtube and check out the british equivalent “snog marry avoid” is what you need to type in
Some of these were very funny, but some of them were just sad and mean. It’s not very funny to make fun of the older, poor people who are trying their best to still look nice and take care of themselves.
Please, why you dont look at the face of the people insteed of what wardrobe owns. Are all people who have had an easy life? Please dont think like inmature minds.
Dignity, Style, Strength, Grace, Pride, Lovely.
It’s funny, a lot of people don’t seem to get this. It is a view of personal style and expression from a different place. What they do nto realize is by including the older folks, they are actually pointing out something important. The young people are okay. Some look better than others. Most are “cool” but not all that great style. The older folks may be dirt poor, and not up on the latest fashion, but they have said, I have a little money to spend on clothes and what is in my closet. how can I use that to look good and express myself. Not to be cool or follow fashion. But to make myself happy.
Actually, if you examine the sense of color, shape, proportion, homage to classic looks, and a truse sense of self, the elders win hands down.
