Quarantined Russians Model Fierce Fashions Using Nothing But Pillows

With the entire country ordered to stay at home amid the coronavirus pandemic, many Russians have no shortage of time on their hands.

As they sit in solitude to flatten the curve, thousands of Russians have already begun using their creative energy to recreate iconic works of art using nothing but the materials in their homes.

There's already a new trend that's emerging across the country: the pillow dress challenge. Russian Instagram users are transforming ordinary pillows into haute couture designs and strutting their stuff down the runway — or in this case, the hallway.

The rules are simple: you can use a belt to hold the pillow up, but otherwise the pillow should be the only item of clothing in the look.

Here's a look at our favorite fashions:

The unique silhouette and playful feather trim make this pillow dress nothing short of iconic.

If you can't go to the French Riviera, just bring the Riviera to you.
