Evening dresses of the last Empress of Russia


These evening dresses of 1910 belonged to the last Empress of Russia, Alexandra Feodorovna. Now they are in the collection of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Peterburg.
The Empress followed fashion but didn't like any extravagance and extremity in clothes. Her evening dresses are simple yet elegant. She liked long, flowing folds and light colours. Most of the dresses are decorated with embroidery and beads. Most of her clothes were created by the local designers and tailors one of which was famous Nadezhda Lamanova.
