Find that dress/uniform/outfit!
« on: May 22, 2006, 11:30:56 PM »
Here's a new challenge. I'll post a contemporary photo of a piece of imperial clothing, and your job is to find a vintage photo of an Imperial Family member wearing it. Many, many thanks to Grand_Duchess_Ash for the majority of the scans I'll be posting!

I'll start with an easy one:

Dang, you're quick!

Here's a tougher one. I think this belonged to Marie Fyodorovna (or maybe Alix). I'm not sure if there even is a photo of anyone wearing this dress -- I just know it looks REALLY familiar to me, so maybe...

I wasn't able to find an original photograph of the dress but it was definately Maria Fyodorovna's, not Alix's, it is currently on display at the Hermitage...

Oh, I've got LOTS more! But I think I'll let this one sit for another day or so to see if any one else can come up with a vintage match for the MF dress...

Hey! That's really a hard one. I don't think I ever saw this dress, either. What a strange color! I'd never expect Maria Feodorovna to wear such a...modern-looking thing?

And...huh...hi, by the way! That's a funny game!
