Siberian Beauties
« on: December 09, 2018, 09:39:14 AM »
For many years the most beautiful models in the World came from Siberia, that area is really famous for that. Then of course the fashion designers discovered South America so recently that's been the focus. Of course physical beauty is only one aspect of a woman, the reality is that personality and chemistry is far more important when thinking of a relationship. However hope everyone enjoys the article and the photos.

I seriously doubt that fashion designers prefer South American women as models.
Generally they are curvy, have breasts and hips. 60-70% of the women's fashion industry
is comprised of gay men. They prefer models who look like budding pubescent boys rather
than anybody with cleavage. They probably go to South America for the trans experience
rather than the models they find there.

Another documentation of Siberian girls wishing to be models. I like the photo of the girl in her bathrobe in her kitchen the best.

Hmmmm. One of the most famous models in the World is Tom Brady's wife, Giselle Bundchen. I'm not sure but I think her ancestry might be part German.

Famous SA models, 2016. Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder, I don't care much for Shakira at all and she would never make one of my lists.

From a number of years ago.

While “Travels in Siberia” are primarily one persons observations and experiences crossing by car Siberia. The authour Ian Frazier does notice the women of Siberia, in one passage he notes. “Deciding against a visit to the spot where Ded Moroz the Russian Santa Claus was born, I instead sat with Sergei in the van writing in my notebook. . . not saying anything, one beautiful woman after the next walked by. We found we both were looking up every minute or so. I remarked on this phenomenon to Sergei and he agreed it was surprising. After half an hour I concluded that Velikii Ustyug has more beautiful women per capita than any other city in the world.”

Further along he describes his journey and the frequent stops in the taiga and setting up camp. “I’m not saying that women paraded trough our campsites wherever we happened to be, but they did show occasionally, even when we were camping far from any village. A few nights before, . . . I had just got into my sleeping bag when Sergei rousted me out so I could meet two women he describes as school teachers eager to meet me. They wanted to see the America and I think Sergei had felt compelled to prove that he really did have one. . . The idea of chasing women in Siberia would have made me nervous even if I was not married. Sergei and Volodya found my reluctance mystifying. ?

Further West he reaches Krasnoyarsk he notices “Looking around, I noticed that beautiful women were in fact walking everywhere, as if I had wandered onto a set of a science-fiction movie about a city inhabited by only beautiful women. The numbers of beauties in Krasnoyarsk would put even Velikii Ustyug in the shade.”

He continues and makes an interesting observation; “It still strikes me as strange that during the Cold War we in America liked to believe that Russian women were not beautiful at all. Longtime fans of football in the United States may remember a light-beer commercial of twenty-five to thirty years ago that imagined a Russian beauty contest in which very fat, be warted, missing teeth women in bathing suits promenaded down before judges and flashbulbs . . . How could we get the facts so wrong?” He muses, he points to misconceptions from the 2nd World War or perhaps the wives of Russian leaders who did not look any more attractive than the leaders.

He continues; “Or maybe the error goes back to John Quincy Adams. . . Adams describes . . . and he mentions repeatedly how ugly Russian women were." A bit further on he comes to the Marquis de Custine who in 1839 published his journals, in fact they became popular on the continent. Oddly enough though they were banned in Russia, as way of background the Marquis was openly homosexual.  He notes and I quote from Frazier; “’but when they are handsome their beauty is perfect". He went on; ‘They posses all the vague and shadowy delicacy of the women of the north, united with all the voluptuousness of Oriental females’”

Further on Frazier notes an interesting fact; “The first time American men met Russian women in large members” was during the time when there was an American Expeditionary Force in Siberia of the 6,000 personnel 700 married Russian women or 6%. The General leading the forces was not pleased but higher ups told him not to punish these soldiers.

Great article, thanks for sharing! Do you happen to know when this Expeditionary Force in Siberia occurred?

(His math is off though, 10% would be 600 so 700 is actually almost 11.65%)

Yes I noticed the math mistake, well at least some one reads the posts!  :laugh:

The  Expeditionary Force  was from 1918 ~ 1920. There were two 'forces' on the East coast of Russia. History has very different views of this conflict.

Two novels came out of the events, 11 Flags, the author I can not recall and U. Sinclair's Oil.

It’s truly tragic that the USA didn’t properly prop up the Whites and the Tsar. All of those millions of lives could have been saved. I’ve seen a video of Russia prior to the revolution, it was a country becoming very prosperous. And there was no bread shortage either, the Bolsheviks locked it in warehouses and let it rot so they could force their bloody revolution.

We never should have allowed NY Banker Schiff to finance them either, he should have been jailed and his money confiscated. The USA really let the Russian people down back then.

Still applies today, I suspect ..WHY? ...Probably the combination of east meeting west ?
