Just one purchase short of a full shell suit?

    Who cares. tacky people, no taste, lots of money. Russians and Americans have more in common than some think. 🙂

  • I’ve seen Anna in the city several times dressed quite normally. But those outfits don’t seem to get the same coverage.

  • Oleg Bulgurov says:

    Are we supposed to actually give a t*ss?

  • kaa12840 says:

    I say let a diva behave like a diva.

  • drummerman says:

    What is a shell suit?

  • Alex Davies says:

    1. That outfit in no way resembles a shell suit (I lived in the UK in the 80s, so can give that opinion on good authority).

    2. She looks great, because although the outfit is a bit wacky, she’s a very beautiful woman who can afford very nice clothes.

    3. Who cares what she wears anyway?

    4. She is fantastic in the Met’s current production of Adriana Lecouvreur.

    • Viola da Bracchio says:

      And being fantastic at what you do is the *only* criterion that matters.

    • Ms.Melody says:

      I concur, this is NOT a shell suit. The whole production of Adriana was magnificent, save for ballet and a small intermission pantomime. Netrebko sang very well as did all the other principals. Finally, a performance worthy of the Met.
      Her clothes are not to my taste but I prefer to see her on stage in costume. What she wears during her spare time is neither anyone ‘s business or newsworthy.

  • Well, Anna’s taste in fashion always was rather willful, but … she is a singer, not a model, isn’t she?

  • Sixtus Beckmesser says:

    Apparently the Met have just been casting the role of Adina Monsoon in AbFab the Opera. La Trebs is playing Eddy opposite Gheorghiu’s Patsy Stone. 😉

  • Alexander says:

    As far as she is a diva so her outfit can be called “bombshell suit” 😉 …. Person who can afford to wear what she/he wants is a lucky one – and she doesn’t need to put a Chopard necklace on, there are a lot of shiny items on her in this picture – much shine to look at so-to-speak 😉

  • V.Lind says:

    Was it not on this blog that I read a couple of days ago a contemptuous reference to subject matter in The Times?

  • john kelly says:

    It’s not unusual at all to see folks dress like this in Manhattan. Hell, I’ve seen people show up to performances at the Met dressed like that.

  • Rgiarola says:

    Putin’s choice. Perhaps Democrats should investigate if she is bringing a message for Trump.

  • Vladislav says:

    From her own instagram… lol
    Before you seek attention learn to sing better , not be a racist and not support an oligarch.
