ballet + fashion

04 July 2011

ballet and high fashion just go together so perfectly, don't they?

some of fashion's biggest names like louboutin, erdem, and giles created tutus and accessories that were sold at a public auction last week to raise money for the english national ballet. louboutin's contribution: an 8-inch pointe shoe-inspired heel. wowza.

(and happy fourth of july to you all!)

I love those ballerina images, but those Louboutin pointe shoes are just for the sake of fashion art I suppose!? Anyway, a lovely idea for raising money for the English National Ballet. Happy 4th of July, Ashley! :) Ada

I've always been obsessed with ballet. The music and the costumes are so beautiful.

I love ballet-inspired fashion. So pretty and feminine.

And I think it's really funny how you have a photo of those high-heel pointe shoes because today I posted a similar picture of some dominatrix boots that look really really similar to these. I had no idea they were a trend!
