The speaker of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg Vyacheslav Makarov has denied the information about ban to visit Mariinsky Palace in high heels. On Wednesday, November 23, reports “Interfax”.

“Of course, walk in heels! In beautiful clothes as you are comfortable. You are young, dress in accordance with fashion, you look great in heels,” said he to the request of journalists to comment on the introduction of a dress code.

The deputies did not intend to limit the visitors of the regional Parliament in the choice of clothing, especially of the fair sex, said Makarov. “I hope that most will see we have beautiful young girls in heels”, he added.

On 11 November, the media reported about the introduction of a dress code for visitors to St. Petersburg legislative Assembly. In particular, they talked about replacing the studs on the indoor shoes or Shoe covers. It is also forbidden to run up the stairs and sit on the window sills, noted the “Komsomolskaya Pravda — St. Petersburg”.

In October, the state Duma Deputy Vitaly Milonov invited the parliamentarians to wear their coats and tunics to the people’s choice, “going to the people, at once was visible”.
