Sochi’s olympic opening ceremony took place not too long ago; therefore I have faith that you, my matryoshka’s- might vaguely remember the female duo who sang “Not Gonna Get Us”- in matching tartan dresses. The dynamic duo :Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova form the popular Russian group t.A.T.u. ( they make music for rebels). Not only did one of Russia’s popular duo’s perform for the Sochi opening ceremony- but they wore dresses made by the Russian fashion designer Igor Gulyaev!

Igor’s designs are beautiful, from his Paradise collection for SS 2014 to his limited edition wedding dress– it’s no wonder he[Gulyaev] was chosen to create a dress with edge perfectly matching t.A.T.u, but also representing Russia and the Russian fashion industry-during an event viewed across the globe.

The duo [t.A.T.u.] established their success with their debut single “All The Things She Said”, which gained acclaim from music journalists and critics, who deemed it one of the best singles in early 2000s. The video of the single, however generated controversy worldwide, showing the girls kissing in the rain in school uniforms. Along with the number-one single, the following records ‘Not Gonna Get us” and “All About Us” gained success and also charted at No. 1 on other contemporary music charts. -Wikipedia
