Have you ever wondered how ballerinas dress outside the rehearsal studio? Back in the day the New York City Ballet mostly chose dancers that were fair-skinned, feminine with an innocent, doll-like quality - 30 years on, dancers are blending in with the city’s trendy, contemporary style.
So when I spotted this Huffington interview with 3 ballerinas from the New York City Ballet, I couldn’t stop reading as it’s always incredible to see how their everyday style differs from the one at the rehearsals. Above are Janie Taylor’s, Tiler Peck’s and Gretchen Smith’s style on and off duty. I especially love Tiler’s easy-going groove of leather jacket, jeans and Converse.
Ballerinas rock, don’t they?
Fun fact: Ballerinas often alter their clothing themselves to fit their individual needs. So they are very handy with scissors, sewing machines and they're masters in cutting out a bra top out of a pair of tights. Genius!
P.S: Desperately perfect...
P.P.S: Ballerina's legs.
