Elvira Nabiullina

"V-brooch, as I understand it, a hint of an early recovery?" - commented the viewer of the broadcast of the July press conference with the participation of the head of the Bank of Russia Elvira Nabiullina, who appeared with two brooches on her jacket - in the form of a horseshoe and the letter V. He, like many others, considered that the official's jewelry served as non-verbal signals about the state of the economy in country.

For the first time such assumptions were put forward in March, when Nabiullina came out to journalists with a brooch in the form of a tumbler: on that day, the Central Bank did not raise the key rate due to the collapse of the ruble markets, keeping it at the level of 6%, so many saw in the details “a symbol of stability ". The tumbler brooch was followed by a house brooch: in April, the Bank of Russia decided to lower the key rate to 5.5%, but the decoration signaled not so much about the state of the economy as about the need to stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. And in June, when the rate reached 4.5%, Elvira Nabiullina attached a decorative pigeon to the lapel of her jacket: in the financial market, supporters of easing monetary policy are called “pigeons”. The official herself does not reveal the meaning of her brooches. “If I explain, it will be boring enough,therefore, different interpretations and versions are possible,”she said.

Taliya Minullina

Regional officials allow themselves a greater discrepancy with the classic dress code than federal ones - the matter is not limited to tumblers. In June, the head of the Investment Development Agency of the Republic of Tatarstan, Taliya Minullina, came to a meeting with State Duma deputy Ravil Khusnullin wearing a shirt with a picture of one hundred dollar bills. A similar one was in the Balenciaga collection for the spring-summer 2018 season.

Since the central topic of the meeting was the energy service contract, and Minullina herself is responsible for attracting foreign investment to the region, some Internet users saw a dollar shirt as a way to emphasize a serious approach, while others - a sacred means of attracting luck and money. However, there were those who accused the official of hype, especially since it is not the first time she appears in eccentric outfits. In March, Minullina came to the meeting wearing a mask with the Invest Tatarstan logo, and in 2019, she put on a coral pink hijab at the plenary session of the international economic summit “Russia - Islamic World: KazanSummit 2020”.

Alfiya Kogogina

Instagram of the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Economic Policy, Industry, Innovative Development and Entrepreneurship Alfiya Kogogina can be easily confused with a popular fashion blog. Every photo, a new suit, and not a black woolen one, which can be seen at most of the participants in plenary sessions, but made of denim, tweed or velvet. Kogogin combines some sets with the main accessories of recent months - masks and gloves. And sometimes the official selects them in such a way that she cannot do without comparisons with the character of the video game Mortal Kombat Kitana.

Irina Yarovaya

“Yarovaya naturally goes to work every time as for a holiday: now a scarlet suit, now a tight-fitting dress, now a turtleneck made of lurex,” wrote TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak, who leads the “State” column on the “Bloody Lady” Telegram channel. The outfits of the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma most often attract her attention, however, perhaps the most noticeable of them is a jacket with a lurid print and fringe, probably purchased from the designer Vyacheslav Zaitsev.

“Not every lawmaker, in general a Russian woman, will find enough self-irony and courage in herself to put on a carpet jacket. But [he] is very fashionable and obviously not cheap,”Sobchak commented. Yarovaya herself prudently put on a jacket over a plain black dress of protocol length, and in case her self-irony and courage failed, she could easily change her image.

Dmitry Medvedev

The public learned about Dmitry Medvedev's love for catchy details for a long time - from the acidic adidas, Nike and Onitsuka Tiger sneakers, in which he appears at informal events. However, in recent years, bright ties have also appeared in the wardrobe of the deputy chairman of the Security Council - for example, with the image of a feather (Brioni), pink swans (Savile Row London) and blue mopeds (Carlo Visconti).

It is not worth looking for the hidden meaning in prints, as well as the one who is responsible for their choice. “We need to answer so as not to offend my wife, and to say more precisely. Of course, I sometimes discuss these issues with loved ones, but mostly I make the decisions about which tie and jacket to wear,”Dmitry Medvedev said during an online conference in Shanghai in 2018.

Vitaly Milonov

Deputy Vitaly Milonov differs from a typical representative of the State Duma not only in memorable initiatives, but also in costumes. He sometimes prefers a classic jacket, a soft, almost homely, white shirt - a plaid shirt, a thin tie - a fluffy bow tie, and relaxed jeans to trousers with arrows. Some non-protocol outfits fall to Milonov by the will of fate. For example, once he, summoned to an urgent meeting right from vacation without the opportunity to go home and change his shirt with a portrait of Yegor Letov and shorts, bought a suit at the nearest point - at the St. Petersburg market "Apraksin Dvor".

“They bring me Gucci, Armani, Louis Vuitton, striped with sequins. Boots under the skin of a python. I bought what was, - said Milonov in the YouTube program What Happened Next. - I'm in this chic suit - Louis Vuitton is sticking out, Gucci is written - I run into Smolny. […] I think, God forbid, I have to talk about something. And suddenly the governor Valentina Matvienko asks me: "What have you got since September 1?" And I can’t say anything also because I have gum all over my mouth”. The deputy did not provide photos of the "chic suit", but he posts his other images with enviable regularity on Instagram.

Daria Besedina

In March, a deputy of the Moscow City Duma from the Yabloko party, Daria Besedina, spoke at a meeting with an appeal not to vote for amendments to the Constitution. She did it in a white T-shirt with an inscription that the members of the United Russia party did not like. “In addition to the statements and expressions, I realized that the performer was wearing a T-shirt with profanity on her chest, obviously characterizing her psychological state at that moment. It seems to me that this is also an unacceptable thing, "- said the deputy Alexander Semennikov. This did not prevent the image from going viral: the St. Petersburg souvenir shop "Mom, Buy!" released similar T-shirts a day after Besedina's speech and sold them out in a little more than a month.
