Ballet, movement, fashion!

”Float Like a Butterfly”
Magazine: New York Magazine Spring Fashion February 25, 2008
Photographer: Andreas Sjodin
Models: American Ballet Theatre dancers (yes, not a single model!)


                                                                                                               Nina Ricci



                                                                                                       Roberto Cavalli

                                                                                              Diane Von Furstenburg

What’s call gorgeous? This is it.
I think the shots are simply a stunning vision of lightness and grace. My favourite is the one in Lanvin. Remember that Spring/Summer 08′ ad campaign shot by Steven Meisel? This looks like it. But what caught my eyes is the way the fabrics swirled around the dancers’ body like they have a life of their own. I really love these! What do you think?

    Beautiful!The new Lanvin ads with Russian model Camille are in the same vein and awesome too.They were probably jumping in front of a huge Fan but the effect is airy and effortless.Bravo!

    Rodarte is my favourite by a mile. Irina modelling for Rodarte is simply sensuous in this cat walk.
