Hundreds of well-dressed guests packed into the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow on Thursday for the All-Russian school graduation ball.
Donning their finery, the young students gathered at the enormous celebration dressed to impress in sparkling frocks and dashing suits.
With glittering ball gowns and fashionable outfits, the teenagers sported beaming smiles as they danced with one another.
The lavish finery and pomp marked the end of their studies for the numerous well-heeled graduates in attendance.
By contrast, Cambridge and Oxford students earlier this month stumbled through the prestigious towns following their nights of celebrations, covering each other in silly string, paint and shaving foam to mark the end of their final exams.
Some girls were seen swigging from bottles of prosecco after ‘trashing’ each other with messy foam, while other students completely covered their faces in pink paint. But not in Moscow…
