This week, I came across so many gorgeous photographs of ballet dancers! I just love the whole tulle & satin aesthetic – very feminine, & yet somehow high fashion. Nothing looks dreamier onstage than a tutu! And after Natalie Portman’s Academy Award winning role in Black Swan, even more people are now interested in the fascinating world of pointe shoes & primas. As a ballet dancer myself, the inspiration this week was only too obvious: BALLET!
Bridgette Bardot was a ballet dancer! Obviously…she’s smoking.
J. Crew Fall 2011 looks pretty incredible. No wonder Michelle Obama frequently wears this designer!
Elizabeth Taylor being her usual elegant self.
The “Romantic” tutu is long & soft. Used for La Sylphide, Giselle, Coppélia, Ondine, & La Vivandière.
Painting of the ballet Giselle. Whoever said that ballet can’t be Gothic?
Happy Friday, everyone!
