Ballet Beauties

I know this is old news now but I've had this post sitting here for a while just not quite finished. As much as it isn't really news it is never too old to show some beautiful pictures of some inspirational designs. A celebration of beauty where designer collaborations are concerned. These collaborations between a varied selection of designers and the English National Ballet have resulted in some stunning personal versions of the Ultimate Ballet Tutu and Ballet Slippers. The costume pieces were auctioned off on the 29th June by a silent auction held at the English National Ballet's Summer Party at the Orangery, Kensington Palace.

See Vogue for the full story and quotes from the Designers. I was sure I wanted to show these pictures especially after focusing on the Ethereal Trend and doing a ballering like style skirt for my ONE X 5 and Ballet inspired outfit in my Special Spot the Style. Due to the crazieness of my schedule lately not all of my planned posts have gone up on time and some have even been scrapped but I felt I loved these pictures so much that I still wanted to go ahead and share them.
What do you think of these desginer collaborations? And what about those Louboutins?!?!?


  1. Woah! These photos are absolutely stunning Mae! I've always been a fan of ballet and I have DVD documentaries of them! It's such a beautiful craft! Those louboutins are seriously killer shoes! xoxoxoxo

  2. I know honey they are so beautiful. I would love to be able to dance but maybe I will get the chance to bring my daughter to classes instead. Louboutins would absolutely kill you. Ha xx
