Midnight in Moscow


       I want to share with you some pictures from our recent trip to Moscow. I had that gorgeous midnight photoshoot in the heart of the Red Square… Such a great experience. 
Usually when I do the styling for photoshoot of myself or a client I always try to recreate the vibes that the places of the shoots are giving me. So that’s why I choose to wear that cute little red dress for the big Red Square. Before anybody says that’s a cliche - I want to say that I’m standing proudly behind my choice ;) 
Bold red dress and lipstick not only because of the name of the square, or the star on the top of the Kremlin, or the colors of most of the buildings around - but also because of the boldness, willpower and courage, that sense while you’re walking there. It’s interesting to know that  the square's name has nothing to do with communism or with the color of many of its buildings. In fact it derives from the word 'krasnyi', which once meant 'beautiful', and has only come to mean 'red' in contemporary Russian. The name became official in the middle of the 17th century.

Actually I really wish I had with me some bright yellow dress, which would  contrast so nicely on the red background, but I wasn't prepared this time. If someone is planing to visit Moscow and the Red Square I’m really suggesting to pack also something nice, bright and yellow too ;) 

In a few days I’ll write an other post with more pictures from our short trip to the Russian capital and some more info of where we've been and what we did!
