I just noticed a strange thing. In this picture (besides that she looks absolutely stunning) labelled as Moscow 1914 Maria has her hair up! So it seems she really was allowed to put her hair up before she turned 16, even in public and not only in private!

How very odd.

I would guess, since Aleksei is being carried, that this was late summer of 1914. At the official declaration of war at the Winter Palace, Aleksei stayed behind in Peterhof because he'd knocked his ankle while on board the Standart and couldn't walk. If I recall correctly, the IF did travel to Moscow soon after the St. Petersburg ceremony.

I wonder if Maria wore her hair up for the St. Petersburg ceremony as well? (None of the photos I have of that day are large enough to tell.)

I am guessing that it is Anastasia's arm we can see behind Alexandra's elbow, and Olga is out-of-view behind her mother?

I can see very good Tatiana behind her mother after Tatiana is Maria and part of Anastasia i think...Also i can see Alexei... And maybe behind Maria is Olga?

Olga, who is not to be seen in the picture, was walking behind the cossack with Alexei in his arms, in front of Anastasia.

IMO, it is very well known footage. You are very welcome.

So, it said for girls to put their hairs up, once when turn 16? Maybe Maria looked older, so Empress maybe suggested to her/even in that ceremony from summer of 1914. Or was it just an anomaly?

Maybe she wanted to wear it up and since she looked mature anough there were no objections... The rules may not have been so strick as we tend to think.

That's just what I was thinking Ally, or just mabey, she put it up, without permission and then there wasn't enough time for the Imperial hairdresser to change it  ;) (doubtful though)

Sorry, I hope you don't think I'm clogging up the boards with these, but I've done one for every girl. So please post names of hairstyles, hats, dresses, shoes etc that Olga, [Tatiana, Maria & Anastasia] wore at any time in their life! Thanks  ;)

Re: Yes you are clogging up the Grand Duchesses boards with such a  ::) request.  The girls pretty much dressed the same with identical outfits with various lengths  through the different stages of there lives.   The girls hair also changed with various stages of their lives.  Even when they had German Measles they had their heads shaved because their hair was falling out due to the lack of vitamens in their diet.

They didn't wear makeup although they plucked their eyebrows.

I know your new and your 12  but there is members on here that are up towards 50+ and yes I'm sitting back laughing at another OTMA obsessive fan.  

In answer to your question.

Please post such questions in Having Fun.

On the contrary, Beautiful_Anastasia is requesting legitimate historical information. I've condensed the topics into one, but I see no need to relegate this thread to Having Fun.

Please be more respectful of members' questions, regardless of their age.
