Olga Orlova had 2 sisters :-Princess Koutchbey who settled in France and Madame Hartmann. Perhaps she or her family washed up in Yugoslavia.They are listed in one of Ferrand's books but I do not have  a copy. I believe a large number of russians settled in Yugoslavia,where they were made very welcome by King Alexander.

  Yes it is truth, a  large number of Russians settled in Yugoslavia after the revolution. My family have many friends who are Russians, but live in Belgrade many, many years...

Countess Marguerite Cassini, St. Petersburg, photograph, circa 1902
The Countess was the daughter of the Russian Ambassador to the United States and mother of the designer Oleg Cassini.  She was the official hostess in Washington D.C. at the Russian Embassy and started the crazy for tulle bows as seen in the photo.


Baroness Zoia de Stoeckl, La Bocca, Canne, photograph, circa 1913
The Baroness was the daughter of Baron Alexandre de Stoeckl, Court Chamberlain to the Grand Duchess George.


Baroness Daria Grenenitz, daughter of Count de Beauharnais, St. Petersburg, Painting, circa 1910
There is a beautiful reproduction of this painting of her on the Hermitage website.


Countess Marie Golenistchev-Koutouzoff, St. Petersburg, Painting, circa 1914.  The Countess was considered to be one of the prettiest women in St. Petersburg society. 


Princess Tatiana Medem, daughter of Prince Gariazine, St. Petersburg, photograph, circa 1914.  The Princess is photographed in her WWI nursesís uniform. 


Madame Vera Narishkine, St. Petersburg, photograph, photograph, circa 1916. 


Countess Lilli Nostitz, St. Petersburg, photograph, circa 1907.  Count Nostitzís American wife was one of the leading lights of the American colony in St. Petersburg. 


Princess Olga Orloff, St. Petersburg, photograph, circa 1898.  Princess Orloff was considered the best dressed woman in Russia.  Her husband eventually fell out of favor and accompanied the Grand Duke Nicholas to his new assignment when the later was removed as Commander-in-Chief.   


Count and Countess Potocki with their hunting party on the steps of their estate, Antoniny, Volhynia, photograph, circa 1907.  Count and Countess Potocki are standing in the center of the photo on the top step.  One can certainly see the influence of British style that became the rage among the Russian Aristocracy just before WWI.     


Baroness Eugenie Rosen, St. Petersburg, Painting, circa 1914.  The Baroness was the daughter of the well known Russian Diplomat and Author, Baron Rosen.


Countess Elizabeth Schouvaloff, St. Petersburg, photograph, circa 1914.  Countess Schouvaloff was famed for her the formidable expression of her countenance and her long standing rivalry with the Grand Duchess Marie Palvona Senior. 


Princess Suzanne Belosselsky-Belozersky, St. Petersburg, photograph, circa 1914.  Prince Belosselsky-Belozersky American wife was considered to be one of the most fashionable women in St. Petersburg, second only to Princess Olga Orloff.

She also had a villa in Biarritz,so may have some funds in exile.She died in Paris in 1938.Does anyone know of her later life ?

Hey, thank you gogm....I will try and post some more photos after I am finished helping with the Rasputin Trial.  Russian noble women had such an exquisite sense of fashion.  There was something very chic but at the same time something very exotic about their taste.  You can tell that they were at the cutting edge of fashion, just as they were so advanced in their artistic taste.  Well thank you once again for you kind remarks....griff
