Black Swan...Ballet Style Inspired Fashion

Ballet inspired fashion is BIG right now because of the Oscar nominated film 'Black Swan' starring Natalie Portman. 




Delicate fabrics, tulle, feathers, marabou & sparkles.  Pale shades of pink and nude as well as basic black. Flats, flowy skirts and wrap tops...








This movie has breathed life into our love for dance inspired style just as much as Flash Dance did for us in the 80's when Jennifer Beals made off the shoulder cut up sweat shirts & leg warmers a must have fashion accessory.




The red carpet at the Oscars even saw it's fair share of Black Swan inspired couture...  Mandy Moore in Monique Lhuiller, Michelle Williams in Chanel and Halle Berry in Marchesa.




The style definitely made it's debut on the runway during Fashion week 2011 as designs inspired by the film were seen in the shows of Chloe, David Koma & Chanel...
Whatever swan you choose to be you can piece together your own ballet inspired ward robe at a more affordable range this Spring by hitting up your local mall and checking out shops such as Forever 21, Wet Seal & I'm sure you'll even find a tu tu at Hot Topic!
