Maria was breath-taking.
Tatiana was stunning.
Olga was gorgeous.
Anastasia was charming.

And they were all beautiful.

Exactly...I agree with Ally....

But my favourite duchesses are Olga and Tatiana...this doesn't mean i don't like MA .....And i must say Alexei was really sweet and handsome boy...

I  love that photo too! 0:-)

I just wonder why Alix and Olga didn't smile. They must have looked so pretty when they did and this photo would be the most beautiful portrait I've ever seen of the AOTMA!

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

Tatiana was probably someone that was beautiful in person, but her photos always caught bad angles.

Especially back in those days you were taught not to smile when having a photo taken. Usually in formal poses such as this one you are pretty much meant to keep a straight face. But there are many photos of Olga adn  Alix smiling. :)

Not always- many photos of her exist that do justice to her beauty. Tatiana was beautiful in person, but I've always found the word elegant maybe a better word to apply to her than the word beauty. She was very elegant.

Tatiana´s most beuatiful pictures come from 1914. The hairstyle was simply amazing and it suited her better than long childy hair or hair simply pulled up.

There was a saying that there were only two beautiful women in Europe and they were both named Elisabeth - Sisi (whose beauty never really got me) and Ella of Hesse, whom I absolutely adore.

Oh Ella of Hesse-Darmstadt! VEIA's my newest obsession.
Sisi's so pretty,too! ( It's just that I have to express my admiration for her on her thread)
