It was one of the best movies of 2010. If you have not seen it yet, you should – it is intense, dramatic, and pulls you in. It is as if you are feeling the emotions of Nina, played by Natalie Portman. Not only is Black Swan an extremely well done movie, it also has some inspiring looks for fashion. I mean, what girl doesn’t love a tutu? Now granted, you may not wear the tutu out in public, but it sure can be an inspiring look.
Amy Westcott did a wonderful job with the costume design for this film. However, outside of a ballet studio or on the stage of a ballet theater – how can we incorporate this extremely feminine look into our daily looks? Feathers are one of my favorites – really anything bird related I love. Feather earnings, feather hair pieces, feathers on your skirt – I love them. Or there are always the warm-up looks you can find every ballerina in to inspire you. From the simple flowing skirts you can wear to the cardigan cover-ups (I danced for years and I always loved wearing both of these…even outside the studio). Ballet flats are also a great simple way to bring this look into your daily style.
Okay, so I just had to share these with you because I love them. But I will be honest – they are from Tod’s and cost an extremely pretty penny or two…at $575…but they are so fun, I just had to include them. You can always find a cheaper option of ballet flats, don’t fret.
Have you seen Black Swan? What did you think? Are you a fan of incorporating the ballet look into your style?
