Via John Derbyshire at NRO’s The Corner I found an amazing article by Anne Applebaum answering the question on all of our minds… OK, on the minds of us bachelors, anyway, Where Did All Those Gorgeous Russians Come From? The answer? Russia has always been filled with gorgeous babes, it’s just that capitalism has finally freed them!
That ought to blow up a few feminist heads (Very small explosions… more like muffled “pops”).
I posted a pic of Maria Sharapova the other day, so I guess we’ll go with the number one Russian Supermodel today: Natalia Vodianova:
It’s not just Russians either. As an artist and aesthetic perfectionist, I love artistic female photography (Yeah, that’s the reason. And I got a bridge…). Babe sites today are positively dominated by eastern European models with last names ending in -cova, and -nov.
The Beef of God is not a Supermodel kind of guy. I like women who aren’t stick-figures, and I love full, rounded faces. Like this:
I think she’s from the Czech Republic. If God had ever made a girl for me, she’d have looked exactly like that, but she’d have her natural dark, dark, dark brown hair. Green eyes and dark brown hair… ~sigh~

Russia does have some nice lookin’ ladies.

As distinguished from those East German shotputters from the 60’s and 70’s. Remember them..:).

Yojimbo: No. Wasn’t born.

In this case, ignorance would be a good thing..:).

Thanks for the heads up Yojimbo. Now I know that googling them is a bad idea.

The Eastern Bloc women at that time swept all of the track and field strength events-hammer throw, shotput, javelin,etc., by a bunch.
Think massive chemical experimentation and/or certain operations that had not attained even a basic level of sophistication at that time.

“As an artist and aesthetic perfectionist, I love artistic female photography”
Heh. And I buy Playboy for the articles. 😉

When I read your comment, my ears began to ring, and my peripheral vision narrowed: Why? Because I was trying to think of an example, and I came up with one: My ex-wife had waist length dark brown hair and green eyes. ~shudder~
