Portrait of a Woman

Image caption

The Hair à la Chinoise hairstyle continued to spread through western culture and made it to Russia where wealthy women continued the trend. Although Russia is geographically close to China, the Russian elite considered themselves to be more similar to their british and french counterparts. Their fashion and lifestyles mimicked that of their western friends in order to allow for a fluid transition from one society to another.
Hair à la Chinoise发型一直在西方传播,一直到俄罗斯富裕的女人穿着这种发型的地方。尽管俄罗斯离中国不远,但富裕的俄罗斯人认为他们更像英国人和法国人。他们的时尚和生活方式类似于西方的朋友,因此统治者可以轻松地一起工作。
