Russia: Lyudmila Putina's Style

LJ user plushev is wondering (RUS) who is responsible for the tacky dresses of Putin's wife (photos attached): “I've heard a fantastic version that this is the work of Kremlin's imagemakers – this way they are said to win women's sympathy for Putin: women unconsciously pity the president who's got such a terrible wife. No matter how incredible, I don't see any other, more logical, explanation.”

    There’s isn’t any reason to be overly critical of Mrs. Putin’s dresses. She may, in fact, start a new fashion; she certainly has individual tastes. (I don’t give too much credibility about the story of Kremlin’s imagemakers and women’s sympathy …) … Whatever, Russia’s first lady has a nice smile.
