    Default Matrioshka Russian dolls for Vogue Russia

    FORGET Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn and Claudia Schiffer, the bodies that designers wanted to dress for Russian Vogue's 10th anniversary were shaped a little differently. To celebrate the magazine's momentous birthday, some of fashion's biggest names including Giles Deacon, Ralph Lauren and Miuccia Prada were asked to design a dress for a matrioshka - a traditional Russian doll - that will be auctioned for charity at a super-chic party on November 20.

    The designers' sketches were realised by Russian craftsmen, who hand-painted the 50 centimetre dolls. "Every matrioshka is unique and a piece of art in itself," said Aliona Doletskaya, Russian Vogue's editor-in-chief. "Installation, sculpture, objet d'art - you can call it however you wish."

    Our favourites? The tongue-in-cheek references to the designers' current collections such as the blunt-cut wigged YSL doll, the all-in-lace Prada doll, and the über-minimalist doll from Maison Martin Margiela. For more information go to RUSSIA. 10 YEARS IN VOGUE.
