My personal favourites of MVW2013 – Formal Gown of Russia 2013 by Champagne! Sparkling Couture

MVW 2013 Russia Formal full

Miss Virtual World 2013 – Again BoSL showcased an amazing event on December the 15th 2013, with the finale of the MVW 2013 contest. Many countries were represented by amazing ladies and it was really an exciting event. Designers and models worked together for their 2 final looks. One evening gown and one national costume for each lady. Every year when I saw the MVW finale it was an exciting moment to see the results, that designers and models worked on for so many weeks. Last year I took the challenge to make a full catalogue of all the gowns and costumes. The idea must have inspired some bloggers this year and they started to do that for the MVW 2013 designs. I decided for my own not to do the same again and just would like to showcase my personal favourites. First I thought about to do my personal top 12, but then I figured that I like more than 12 and just thought about doing all the ones that really caught my attention in no particular order


The wonderful deep red gown with the rich and detailed corset for Miss V Russia 2013, Dolcestella Draconia, was made by Enzo Champagne, owner and designer of Champagne! Sparkling Couture. The “Russian Passion” gown really reflects a style that i can imagine on a russian high society party. The huge red skirt is decorated with some delicate gems while the corsage is made with an amazing texture rich of gold and very filigree, detailed created. The amazing flowers that are going down from the waist over the skirt add a very elegant touch as well. The wonderful headpiece as well is part of the “Russian Passion” . The sheer lace that covers the eyes is hold by amazing 3 flowers that repeat the wonderful flowers of the skirt. The “Russian Passion” you can find at the Champagne! Sparkling Couture Mainstore together with some more amazing new releases.

MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss Russia 2012 by PurpleMoon & Finesmith

The wonderful national gown for Miss Russia 2012 was made by Poulet Koenkamp, owner and creative designer of PurpleMoon. She made a wonderful interpretation of the russian traditional style for Miss Rusalka Callisto, who represented Russia in the Miss Virtual World competition for 2012 and in the end made the 3rd runner up. The textures are fantastic and you can see the incredible skills of Poulet, if you take a closer look on the fabrics. The huge headpiece as well is part of the “Catherine” gown. The wonderful ensemble is now available at the PurpleMoon Mainstore. For the jewelry Rusalka chose different already existing parts from Finesmith like the earrings and ring of the Rhonda set, the “Capri Collar” or the “Golden Nails”. As an extra special eye catcher, yula Finesmith designed a wonderful brooch to match this awesome outfit and the theme. The “Fabrege” brooch is an amazing and perfect decoration for this wonderful creation and it can found in a few more color combinations at the Finesmith Mainstore.
