One for the Ballerina

Have you been enjoying all the editorials out there that seem to be styled around the ballet? I've been finding them rather pretty and romantic. On the heels of the current ballet craze, I remembered a brief feature that I read a while back in a 'W' magazine featuring a ballerina named Misty Copeland. Of course, I had long since tossed out the mag and forgotten the ballerina's name, but my goose-hunt eventually proved fruitful, only after several seriously beautiful image chasing tangents. I find her athleticism simply inspirational and had originally intended to post several photos of present day and vintage ballerina inspired fashions, but then I came across a photographic series entitled "Ballerina Project", which I had to share. Note: This is a photograph heavy post, so it may take a while to load.

The series, which was taken by photographer, Dane Shitagi, was taken over a span of 8 years and uses New York City as a backdrop. I've kept the collection somewhat abridged, but please follow the link to see many more gorgeous photos of the "Ballerina Project".

I know! Makes me want to get dolled up and go out the ballet. Sadly, in the past few years I've noticed a rather casual crowd at the theatre. What's that about, I wonder?

I noticed that to... it is sad. Although get dressed up any way and start a new trend "the art of getting dolled up"
