The history of "Miss Russia"

The contest "Russian Beauty" was held in Paris with1927 to 1938 among the emigrants. At that time in the French capital lived more than two hundred thousand refugees from tsarist Russia. Two years after the first contest, all the girls of Russian origin who live in European countries took part in it. The jury included such celebrities as writers Bunin and Kuprin, artists Korovin and Benoit. One day, the daughter of Maria Shalyapin took part in the competition. After the outbreak of World War II, these competitions were terminated. After a long break, they resumed in 1989, during the reign of the country "reorganizer" Mikhail Gorbachev. At the same time qualifying rounds were held in each of the Soviet republics, and the culmination was the contest "Miss USSR". It was attended not only by participants from 15 Soviet republics, but also from autonomies. After the collapse of the great Soviet Union, of course, the contest held in Moscow was called Miss Russia. And now, over two dozen in the Russian capital, an authoritative jury consisting of television, film, variety artists, etc., chooses the most beautiful girl in the country. In this article we will talk about "Miss Russia 2005". By the way, this competition is written that it was the first one, which in its organization was in line with international standards for holding such events. So it was meant to be. After all, this year the contest was held under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and had the status of "national".

At the very beginning of the contest, the contestants were defile in national costumes, which for them were prepared by the famous stylist-designer Alena Akhmadulina. In doing so, she used the motifs of Vasentzov's fairy tales. Then they were transformed into sports and self-confident tennis players in snow-white folded mini-skirts and sports tops. Then the girls had to shine with their creative skills. However, the jury did not stop there, and the girls were asked questions on a variety of topics. Of course, in the final part of the girl appeared before the jury and all spectators in evening dresses. At the same time, Alexandra Ivanovskaya (Miss 2005) came on the stage with her long hair undone, and everyone just gasped.

Organizational moments

The main director of the show "Miss Russia2005 "was Andrei Boltenko (in those years - the main director of the 1st Public Channel). Since the competition was held in the Great Manege, the decorations were also appropriate - in the style of "Russian fashion seasons." Leading the show were the legendary Nikolai Fomenko and Fyodor Bondarchuk. In their characteristic playful manner, they confessed that they hid from their halves, where they will spend this evening. Between the main parts of the competition, the "nightingales" of the Russian stage - Valery Meladze and Nikolai Baskov - performed in front of the audience, but Maxim Galkin decided to hold a beauty contest in the ranks of modern politicians, as a result of which the palm tree was given to Valeria Novodvorskaya. In a word, on this day were chosen two winners - Alexandra Ivanovskaya and Valeria Novodvorskaya. This is the choice!

Miss Far East became Miss Russia

Her beauty, all her features were truly Slavic, our, Russian. The jury members already represented her at the Miss World contest. However, the girl was only 16, so she was not allowed to participate in the world competition. Nevertheless, the girl received as a reward 100 thousand US dollars.

A little about the winner

Alexandra Ivanovskaya was born on the FarEast, namely in the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur. Since childhood Sasha had long hair. Her mother was very fond of making beautiful hairstyles, braids, tie them with bows, decorating with various hairpins, etc. For the first time she participated in the contest "Varvara-Krasa - a long braid" at the age of nine. The length of her hair reached 135 cm. At the same time, she began to dance and practice choreography. She devoted this to it for six years. She even had to shorten her long hair, so it was more convenient to collect them in a bun. By the time of the contest "Miss Russia - 2005" hair had grown to 115 centimeters. Her height is 180 cm, the width of the chest - 87, the waist - 63 cm, and the hips - 94 cm.

Alexandra Ivanovna visited the Lenin Library


After Alexander Ivanovskaya won incompetition "Russian beauty", about it began to spread unpleasant rumors. In the media and the Internet, articles were published that claimed that the girl had appeared in a pornographic video. However, if you carefully look at the beginning of this video, with a completely innocuous title - "Alexander Ivanovskaya visited the Lenin Library" or "Lolita in the library," then judging by the clothes of the heroine, it immediately becomes clear that the clip was filmed in the early 90's of the past century, that is, when Alexander herself was only 4-5 years old. The misconception of all introduces the fact that the girl in the video is very similar to the young "Miss Russia 2005", but in no way can it be her. Nevertheless, this video flown around all sites, it was viewed (who with indignation, who with interest, and who with contempt) millions. After all, the girl at the moment was considered the face of the whole country. Then poor thing because of age was not allowed to participate in the contest "Miss Universe", which for her was also very offensive. After all, when she appeared on the international show, she would certainly be able to win the title of "Queen of the Universe". We think that her magnificent beauty, as well as extraordinarily beautiful hair, could delight all the authoritative jury.
