Wow new to me. Beautiful! Thank you. Alix's looks so much like Anastasia to me there and it's interesting
how they both had bangs...or as they would say: " a fringe "

That's funny, you know, 'cause in english you say "bangs" but in italian we say "frangia" that's so similar to "fringe" they used... i think it's french, though, not italian...

BlessOTMA, you're ringht: she look so much like Anastasija. Sooo much, it's impressing, isn't it? everyone say it was Tat'jana who looked like her mother the most - of course, she really looked like her mum, but Anastasija too. moreover, Anastasija was strawberry blond, just like Alix was, while Tat'jana was a brunette, like Marija Fedorovna...

Yes, she does look a lot like Anastasia there. Shows how if Anastasia had lived to be an adult, she would have likely grown up to be a ravishing beauty... :(
Does anybody know how they made their bangs/fringe so frizzy-curly like that? I read in a novel once that someone used a hot slate pencil, but that's not royalty... ;)

i don't know exactly, but my grandma - so some years after! - told me she used a sort of sheet of paper, the sort you use for food; they used a hot iron, and then "sealed" the hair into that sort of paper all night long.
But of course, my granny did'nt come from royalty...

Sunny what I find interesting as a painter of the family, is there are times where all the children look like a version of Alix! lol! Particularly if one looks at photos of Alix though her life...she could like like her father and then in another photo, her mother, Princess Alice. The cast of AF's looks can change from photo to photo. But as I say, I can see her in all the children...if not directly  in facial features then in facial expression.

I'm completely with you; it seems like everyone of the children has mixed up perfectly both their parent's features...

Yes! It's a rare photo! I like it very much. I think there's one in which Alix appears with a very similar expression on her face, but the dress is different.

beautiful photo Katenka_Fyodorovna  ! The photographer seems British. I wonder if it was taken when Alix was in the UK? Thanks for posting !

It was taken shortly after the engagement when she took a cure in the Isle of Wight in (I think May) 1894. Huge session
