    "Since my grandfather and dad were considered handsome men, the topic of rivals in our family was especially relevant. I remember how my grandmother and I looked at one such temptress - she lived in the opposite house and often went out on the balcony to smoke! Firstly, she was "disgustingly thin," as my grandmother, being curvy, expressed, and secondly, she sparkled with brooches and beads. From afar it was not clear whether real diamonds or simply costume jewelry, but this lady was fascinating. I remember that it was because of her that we decided to go to the jewelry store.

    There I was bought the first earrings with red stones. And grandmother Faina went into haberdashery and bought herself a red bead - a piercing shade, like a baby's blood, and said that "it's from bad female envy and evil eye." Immediately, we all put this on ourselves and on the way met the very "smoky" Zinaida. It was a special action, as both of them with pounding hearts stopped opposite each other, greeted with narrowed eyes. Zinaida Petrovna always greeted me separately and for some reason she only asked me:

    "And where is Mikhail Ivanovich?" Somehow it has not been seen ... - and sparkled at me with eyes, brooches and rings.

    "Grandpa's home already," I answered honestly.

    "How you look like him," she barely touched me with her cold hand.

    My grandmother scolded me, why I told her everything, "as a fool," I report, because he goes to her and even can leave us!

    But our beautiful grandfather Michael had no idea that he wanted to leave us, he read books for hours on the sofa, at dinner and supper he drank wine and looked at us with love.

    So there were "grandmother's beads" in my collection of favorite ornaments , which I still wear, and put on them when I am especially sad.

    Already when I grew up, I adored running to jewelry department. Then they gave me a whole bag of vintage Chanel brooches and a belt, as if from diamonds, which I always put on my head, because it looks like a crown. There is no such quality now, they are made like jewelry - the stones are real, and now everything is plastic and immediately drops out.

    These are my favorite THINGS FROM THE CHILDHOOD, "with a biography"

    I do not blame myself, when I put several brooches on or a lot of beads, I immediately remember the women who raised me! Grandmother always had this regal style: red lips with a bow, stern blackened eyebrows, sweet smell of "Red Moscow" and rings, brooches, handbags with precious buttons ... I even multiplied and maximized her style of "being at the peak of beauty" as she Expressed. I found an approximate solar meaning in the collections of the Spanish brand Carrera y Carrera - diamond stars, snakes, flowers - they, like the armor of royal persons, distract the evil glances, protect you and amuse you. I've always been sure that decorations please both you and others.

    Old things LOOK in the frame are "richer" than new ones. With AGE their quality rises Somehow during the filming of "The Last Fairy Tale of Rita", I went to an antique store in St. Petersburg and found an old crown. It was all cracked, apparently, valuable stones were removed, but beaded pearls and muddy green and red stones remained.Approximately this I drew and ordered from the designer Konstantin Gaidai.

    And this vintage has remained a pretext in my house as a precious artifact. Actually, I do not store anything - I always use it in the theater, playing a role, or in the cinema. Strange as it may seem, old things look "richer" in the frame than new ones.
