hand in hand…

HYE PARK FOR VOGUE KOREA…. LOVE HER.
For centuries dance has been the center of culture, both traditionally and as a part of pop culture.
It is no surprise that fashion and ballet have always walked hand in hand… somewhat…
Recently, in the January issue of Vogue, they used a dancer along side models… and I thought to myself how nice it is to see young men in dance make appearances in Vogue…Then I thought wait a second… I have a collection of these images that inspire me…. Then it made me realize even more so : 

First we had Picasso doing costumes for the Ballet Russe and Paris Opera… And Balanchine commissioned lacroix… now Rodarte has helped out… and recently, Peter Martins commissioned Valentino for NYCB.

Photographers like Irving Penn and Annie Leibovitz have always photographed dancers, Annie said herself that it was impossible to photograph dance itself… so instead she focused on portraits of influential dancers…

Here are some of my favorite dance meets ballet images…

WHEN CAROLINE TRENTINI WAS RELEVANT… and BILLY ELLIOT MADE IT OKAY FOR BOYS TO DANCE..
