Can our actress and singer look at the beach as impressive as at social events? Fashion historian Alexander Vasilyev has finally made its way to swimwear celebrities.
“Few know that for many centuries women were skinny-dipping. And not in the sea, and in the pond, lake, river. Seaside resorts and walk along the coast came into Vogue only in the XIX century. Then many noble ladies began to walk along the beach even in petticoats, but in the water none of them climb. And only in the second half of the nineteenth century there was a wooden cabin on wheels for changing that horses were taken into the sea. Ladies dressed in them of a summer walking dress in wool striped bathing suit to the knee in the form of wide trousers with a skirt on top, and this image was added also a bathing cap. Of course, no sunbathing out of the question. The beaches in the nineteenth century was divided into female and male. And only after the First world war were mixed. One of the first such beaches — “Floria” — has opened the Russian emigres in Constantinople, allowed for the money. It exists in Istanbul to this day. After men and women began to sunbathe and swim together, there was a demand for swimwear. At first they were whole and not divided into top and bottom. Until exactly 70 years ago, in July 1946, invented the bikini. And the swimsuit began to shrink in size.

When choosing a swimsuit, keep in mind the peculiarities of your figure. Think about how do you bikini or came time to put on the closed model. Don’t forget about the accessories, that your beach-ready look can decorate and bracelet are made of plastic or wood, and a necklace of semi-precious stones, turquoise or coral. But not a diamond necklace! Well as any fashionista will always come a spectacular straw hats, sarongs, sunglasses, perfect manicures and pedicures. I assure you that the details play a major role on the beach.”
“Not so long ago, acting with Vera Brezhneva in another television programme, I was struck by the slimness of her camp. Still not in vain called the singer a sex symbol. And the swimsuit of Faith is consistent with this status. Beautiful necklace. It suits her and goes well with the color of the hair.”
