They were all so beautiful.... Olga and Tatiana had a very regal kind of beauty and Anastasia was endearing with her less perfect looks, and Maria´s beauty was very earthy, very simple and honest. Looking into her face one thinks not of grand halls and gilded candleholders, one thinks about a river running throu meadows and wind singing in the trees.

Nice Ally. Well put and I can't say I disagree!

By modern standards Marie has the classic girl next door look to me. Beautiful but in an unassuming way. Tatiana and Olga are more regal looking. Perfect blend of looks and personalities between the four of them...

What a beautiful, clearer version of that photo! Thank you for posting. 

Maria, in my opinion, is the of the most beautiful of the four girls, just in my own opinion. Tatiana had a very regal type of beauty and unique looks. Olga was beautiful too. Anastasia, well, I agree with Ally on that one!

We'll never know how the fully developed Anastasia would have looked but I think she was developing into a bit of a stunner right at the point that her life was snatched away from her. Her sisters were already timeless beauties and I think the Imp was carving out her own niche, sadly never fully realized.

Sara Araújo,  I don't know how I missed your post with that photo of Marie until now...completely breathtaking...really I sometimes think Nichols wasn't joking when he said he worried if she was a human child...

Agree with this completely...I think Anastasia would have had a more modern, unique beauty about her when she was older and it is so tragic that we will never know.

Wasn't it said that Anastasia, if she grew up, would have because a great beauty?

Anyone got any new Maria photos to post?

Oh I love that picture! I'd never seen that variation, they all look utterly darling and beautiful...It's so sweet how Olga put her arm sort of protectivley around her little sister in that shoot. Where did you find it?

I found it here http://www.bloomsburyauctions.com/

Here is another photo from the same website. I know the photo is well-known, but I have never seen it so big and clear. Imperial Family in 1899:





does anyone have the other pictures of this series? and what book is it from, just curious. thank you

I believe it was, one of Alix's ladies who quoted that, but I can't quite remember who. I think Anastasia would have had a more...striking beauty to her sister's classic looks.

Does anyone have a full for this?

imo, Anastasia Nicolaevna had an unexpected stateliness about her by 1917 ...that impressed me in her 1917 tree stump photo. She matured during the war amazingly.

I agree, and I also think it would have been rather difficult to tell what she may have looked like once she completely stopped developing. I don't believe we saw much of anything from her past the age of 17 in that last month of her life. She still may have had a little ways to go before settling into the physical features that would have defined her 20s and beyond.

I've mentioned before that Anastasia had a lot of physical phases. Much more than her sisters who had more of a predictable trajectory from their pre-adolescent youth onward. Sometimes I look at a photo of her as a 15 or 16 year old and it's hard to believe it's the same person in the next picture I see of her as a 6-8 year old. Just makes her that much more unique and interested to me :-)

And back to Maria now. I feel bad that we are letting her younger sister take over her thread here :-/
