The first official USSR beauty contest ‘Moscow Beauty 1988‘ was held in the Luzhniki Palace of Sports in Soviet Moscow and became a real sensation for the world community. Promoters of the event have refused all the standards and let girls with any figure take a part in the contest. In the end, a schoolgirl Maria Kalinina won the competition.
Now Maria lives and works as a Kundalini Yoga coach in Los Angeles, California, the USA. So, let’s look at the photos and remember how went the first Soviet beauty contest.
