Soviet Teen Magazine Glamour Shots from the Late ’80s

Those curly bangs! Those stone-washed jackets! These quirky vintage glamor shots! Here’s a little archival curiosity dug up by the English Russia blog: Pages from an ’80s magazine called Severstnitsa or “Peer Girl.” Here you will find portraits of regular girls next door of the Soviet Union, aged 17 to 19 posing awkwardly with bouquets of carnations, striking their attempt pin-up poses at the park, flailing their blonde hair, and strutting in shiny lamé. Scanned for your vintage kick. Enjoy!
