Fashion historian Alexander Vasilyev offers as an example, consider images of the actress Alena Khmelnytsky. What he advises to adopt?
“Alena Khmelnitskaya is a very beautiful woman with a sweet smile. In 2014, she divorced her husband, the famous film Director Tigran Keosayan, he has a new family now. But in life Alena has her favorite man. Khmelnytskyi 47, and it looks great! And in the wardrobe Alena I don’t see the radical error, she wears the right thing. She choses the right length, not too exposed, not wearing any tight things. In terms of color, she also does not commit any blunders. And for all the ladies in this age category Alena can be an example of how not to stumble on the thorny path selection of clothes and look elegant. The style that she prefers, I would define as Bohemian-bourgeois. What it is? A sort of negligent elegance. The combination of velvet, silk, fur, leather. Decoration in ethnic style: loose beads, bracelets on her wrists, with a rim glasses, “dragonfly.” Clothing with a hippie tinge, but for the rich people: gathered skirts and blouses with lace, shoulder bag, high boots, scarves around the neck. And of course her beautiful long hair. One of the main progenitors of this style was Yves Saint Laurent. He soaked it the atmosphere of Paris, especially of the Saint-Germain district, which was the place where the style flourished in the first half of the 1970s. Can be, for MS Khmelnytskyi it will be a surprise and a revelation. I admit that she has no clue about what is a example of Bohemian-bourgeois style of dress. But it’s so.”
Whether you wear sleeveless dresses?
“I think that after forty-five years sleeveless garments to wear is not necessary. On the other hand, look how good looks the top part of the hands of Alena. But to abuse this course is not worth it. Asymmetric dress with dark blue wedge is the perfect solution for those who have problems with excess weight. Why? This style is very slimming”.

“White top and dark jacket, trimmed with small buttons and edging look elegant. Beads in the style of the 1970s also look good. Scarlet goes to Aretha especially. Just because she has dark hair. So this jacket without fasteners, with sleeves three quarters of her face. What’s not to like? Mobile phone in hand. The actress should give the impression of lightheartedness. And the phone creates the image of a business person that constantly holds a hand on pulse”.
White shoes is very fashionable!
“White shoes are a trend today. It looks good complete with green jackets and colorful skirt. One time these shoes would be considered vulgar and even old-fashioned. But now, in a new stage of history, again all the ladies loved the white shoes. I don’t see anything bad.”
