Spring is in full bloom and all the Ukrainian ladies and men enjoy it to the fullest. This year Odessa hosts a unique event of British style and tradition which is an analogue to the famous Tweed Run. On the 7th of May over seventy beautiful Odessa girls and boys joined in a retro cruise around Odessa’s historical centre.

All the participants of the cruise were dressed up in beautiful costumes from the 20s, some even rode spectacular retro bicycles. The cruise started next to the famous Odessa Opera House, looped around the beautiful historical centre of Odessa, continuing through Primorskiy boulevard with its finish line in the Moon garden.

The Moon garden offered to all the participants of the cruise and everyone interested in the culture of the 20s a great variety of entertainment – from classes in swing dance and dance competitions to the traditional tea ceremony ”Five o’clock tea” held under an open sky.

In the evening a great jazz festival was held with ”Blues Project”, ”Smoking A” and ”Ruki v Bryuki” as the headliners. All the guests of event could get their hair cut and done in the best style of classy 20s as well as listen to several lectures about the fashion and history of that era.

It’s not a secret anymore that Russia has one of the most beautiful women in the world. And this weekend Miss Russia was selected at the annual national beauty contest. The winner of Miss Russia 2013 is an 18 years old student of economy Elmira Abdrazakova from Mezhdurechensk.

Elmira will represent Russia at next year’s Miss Universe and Miss World beauty contests. As a prize she has received 100 000 US Dollars and a car. According to the winner, she would like to spend her money prize on helping her hometown.

Elmira confessed that the hardest part in the contest was walking in high heels, since she is not a professional model.

This year the jury at Miss Russia included Miss Universe 2012 – American Olivia Culpo and Miss World 2012 – Chinese Yu Wenxia.

Culpo believes that the winner of the contest “should not only be beautiful on the outside, but should also possess an inner beauty”. And according to Wenxia “one should be very self-confident, to convince everybody that you are the most beautiful one”.

Beautiful blond Russian girl Anastasia Yazykova from Yaroslavl won the title of the 1st Vice-Miss of Russia. The 2nd Vice-Miss of Russia became a stunning brunet from Republic of Kalmykia – Irina Tumanova. She also won the title Nation’s Choice according to the internet based election.

This month Russian Women and men, as well as the guest of the city, will get a chance to get into the world of “American Beauty”.  A photo exhibition dedicated to a growing phenomenon – Children Beauty Contests.  Each year over 25000 of such contests are held all over the US.  The rules of such contest stipulate that the participant should be under 18 years old. Though these children should look like adults – tanned, with heavy make-up, fake eye lashes and nails.

Danish photographer Laerke Posselt in her work focuses on the kids that are too young to know what they want and where it’s their parents that decide for them.

Posselt observes and takes pictures of three girls – Evi, Meddison and Sofia – during their everyday life and contests. The question raised in this series of photos are very deep: what kind of self-esteem will these girls have when they grow up; what kind of relationship will they have with their mothers that force them to be models and compete with each other at such a fragile age; what influence do these contests have on  girls’ emotional health…

Laerke is an independent photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. She has studied Art and Documentary Photography as well as Photojournalism. Her documentary work focuses on contemporary social issues in Denmark and abroad.

Lerke Posselt  took the first prize in the World Press Photo Contest in the category “Portraits” for her portrait of Mellica Mehraban,  she was also awarded the first prize in the Pictures of the Year International  contest as well as many others.
