Black Swan Is Having A Major Influence On Spring Fashion!
I mean, how could it NOT? Black Swan has grossed over $60 million, won countless awards, and stars the beautiful and talented Natalie Portman. As impressive as that may be, there are so many other films with popular stars and high profits. The lasting impact will come from one major aspect that we all noticed, fashion-obsessed or not- the COSTUMES!
The outfits in films that revolve around artistic performances like ballet, ice skating, and theater almost always include fashion that is to die for. Literally so in Black Swan. The premise is a bit too thriller-esque for my taste, but luckily I have been able to enjoy it beyond belief through the film stills and promotional photos.
Even without spending $15 at an overcrowded New York City theater, I feel like I have seen Black Swan. And I love it. The glitter, the lace, the contrasting black and white... it's beautiful. All of it. And it was all designed by Rodarte, a label started by two sisters, and based out of Los Angeles, where the trend is predicted to have the most impact.
We're obviously not going to see giant swan wings featured in Vogue this Spring, but please be prepared to see ballet slippers, ribbons, soft braids, sequined party dresses, tutus, and light shades of pink pop out everywhere from Forever 21 to the Spring Collections of Chanel, Alexander Mcqueen, and J. Mendel. Overdone? Maybe. Immature? No doubt. I am channeling my inner ballerina, and I could not be happier.
