those italian vogue pics are amazing, jennifer they are so reflective of the look I'm going for this year.

I'm also liking the flamenco inspired skirts. h&m has quite a lot of these this season, with tiered ruffled...very cute. I can see them being really pretty with just a simple wraparound ballet sweater and ballet flats or flat mary janes. now I'm really wishing I'd bought one of those skirts when I saw them.

I am a ballet dancer. I think its so cool that people are starting to pick up that kind of style. It was always targeted as a boring slow, annoying to watch 'sport", and its cool that people are now appreciating that it is an art and are incorporating it into high fashion!! Have any of you heard of Irina Dvorovenko, shes is so gorgeous and is so stylish, shes with ABT.

I love the pics with the models on pointe shoes. I wonder if they're really dancers... I think the thing most influenced by ballet is ballerina flats (obviously). They're everywhere these days. My favorite dancer-inspired style is wrap-around sweaters...but there are way too many prom dresses with tulle skirts.

ya she is so amazing. Julie Kent, another abt dancer also had a baby last summer(??) i think and of course maybe one or two months after it she was back to her super tiny self. Julie is another really fashionable one. I actually got to meet her at a masters tea at yale this fall. Ya, she's amazing

OT, sorry --- Yeah, athletes that get pregnant and manage to stick to their routine seem to have incredible turnaround rates... Marathon runners have the same ability to bounce back to their former selves, and there's some rule for how long they can keep pounding the pavement while pregnant --it's pretty far into the pregnancy, i believe...

Regardless, Julie Kent looks great in those pictures. Again, love the ballerina body.. Small but strong!
