Self-portrait of Anastasia taken in a mirror. Just goes to show you how people are still so much the same.

Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov, self-portrait. Every time I see this picture, it makes me think of GD AN saying/posting: "Selfies? I did it first b*tch*s. (about 100 years before and without a f***n smartphone)"
