As a small girl I had a fantasy of becoming a ballerina, wearing my long hair in a bun and dressing up in powder pink tutu. I never went beyond fantasies though, so my fascination with ballerinas never left a dream world. Till today, days after every ballet performance that I see, I can’t stop to marvel at the swan like charm so typical for ballet dancers. All about ballerinas seem to be so elegant, marked with the special kind of a fragile beauty. Is there a chance to bring this etheric charm into the daily life, so at least from time to time one can feel like a prima ballerina without looking silly or out of place? I do believe so, as fashion has a reply to similar questions!
For those who would like to create a ballerina inspired outfit, some easy recommendations to follow:
Chanel used to say that every woman alive wants Chanel No.5. Considering the iconic scent’s great career and never ending popularity, they might have been right. What is also probably true is that ever woman alive wants Louis Vuitton handbag. No matter shape, color, logo or no logo, L.V. monogram is synonymous with success and luxury, as well as quality and timeless apparel.
For the pre-fall 2013 season, Louis Vuitton featured this playful and chic look-book, set at Hotel de Crillon starring Dree Hemingway.
… and back in time.
I would love to witness both Dior events, but if given a choice to see one only, I would chose 1959 fashion show. The clash between two worlds, so different in everything, would have been an amazing experience. Now, all we are left with are pictures and short movies from that moment. To me, these archival images are simply amazing.
