Inspirational Monday: Black Swan

Photobucket

Call I can say is Rodarte Rodarte Rodarte....

After seeing Black Swan all I wanted to do was put on a tutu and do some ballet. Mind you I only took ballet for about a month when I was about 6 and quit because I hated it. But thanks to the sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy they created a beautiful romantic world of tutus and feathers while in the midst of a sick twisted plot. Even as Natalie Portman transforms into the Black Swan the costume is still elegant and darkly romantic. These costumes are subtle but truly make the movie. Isn't this what ballet is all about? Elegance, beauty, grace, romance.
