vaguely............

(Met her as an undergraduate)

when she was younger she had a distinct similarity to a set of photos of maria. (Taken 1910? A common set - one lot goes left to right T,A,Alexei,M,O with A and M on T and O's laps)

And as for Belle - she's always had a viciously strong maternal instinct.......................

Cool Holly xD
Do you have bangs/fringes?

I just saw this now, haha. Yes, I do. I've had them since I was three or so. Though I don't think I look exactly like her now as opposed to when I posted that!
Strangely, though, I've always gotten comments about how I looked like OTMA. Recently my old Russian professor (who was still very Soviet and disliked the Romanovs) would tell me I reminded him of Soviet women in how I gave my opinions and yet he randomly noted that I looked like "Tsar Nicholas' daughters...Anastasia..." People always tell me I look Russian as well, but I'm not sure what that means as I don't think there is a 'look'..

My Russian grandmother, who keeps a picture of the imperial family on her bed side table, says I look exactly like Maria.

Well that sounds quite lucky for you! :-)

Since I first became interested in the Romanovs, I've thought there was an uncanny similarity between Alix & my grandmother's sister. She's deceased, but I'll try to find a photo of her, or her daughter, who looks a lot like her.

It's only been in the past couple of years that I realized my mom when younger looks a little bit like "1914 era" Tatiana. Just something about the bone structure and nose/nostril shape.

Not the best photo but the only one I have on my computer:

Sorry to sound mean but I don't see it.  Again I apologize.   I get told I look like certain people but guess what I don't.
Beautiful faithful Nargony.
Thanks Emily!

That's okay.  Not everyone sees the same perception. :)

I see what you're talking about. I don't think she looks like any of the Romanovs specifically but if someone showed my a picture of her and said she was a close relative I would probably believe it.

She's very pretty by the way. Certainly she has that much in common with Tatiana :-)

Thanks! She's got a lot of wrinkles now, at 53, but she's my mom, soooo I guess she's still pretty to me. :)  This was actually the only photo of her when she was younger that I have on my laptop. One of these days I may dig out one of her as a teen & do a comparison.

I love these threads, by the way.

pumpkinpearl, to me, she looks like Princess Alix of Luxembourg (daughter of Grand Duchess Charlotte).  Maybe I'm way off base, but like you said, everyone sees something differrent ;)

I also want to say your mother is very pretty too :)  She looks like a blushing bride :D
