London, May 5 : Russian women would now be able get a taste of the nation's super-rich oligarchs lifestyle- thanks to a slew of books telling them how to step into their shoes.
With 110 billionaires and 130,000 millionaires, oil-rich Russia now ranks only behind the United States in terms of sheer numbers of wealthy bachelors.
The publishing industry is giving tips to women, guiding them what clothes to wear, to strategies in the bedroom and the divorce court.
The most important being not to look too tarty, reports the Telegraph.
In Marry a Millionaire, Russian socialites Oksana Robski and Ksenia Sobchak warn women against wearing "jeans with sequins... bare bellies, fake tans under Dolce and Gabbana leopard print tops, dark glasses at night and high-heeled boots, even if it's July"
The reason behind this approach, according to one former oligarch hunter, is that decent men in Russia are generally thin on the ground, especially those who are both solvent and sober.
A trend was born and Russia's bookshops are now lined with dozens of texts with such titles as Bitch Seeks Man and The Bitch's Beginner's Course.
"Take 100 Russian men," said Oksana Grussova, who spent 15 years hunting rich men, and was married to a wealthy construction magnate.
"Ten of them will be gay, 30 alcoholics, 10 drug addicts, 20 impotent, leaving a paltry 30 men.
"Now take 100 Russian women, 90 of whom will be beautiful - the race simply isn't fair," Grussova added.
