For a long time now I have been inspired and drawn to imagery of birds, their silhouettes (take note background of twitter, blog and tumblr), swallows and feathers. I'm not entirely sure what it is I love about them. Perhaps their delicacy, elegance, symbolism of freedom? Or, they are just pretty... mystery eh?
The other day I went to see Black Swan and it was everything everyone told me it was and more. I love the Ballet. I danced from the age of 2 up until I was about 12 and my father was a dancer in the Royal Ballet. Safe to say, it's something I am passionate about. It's beautiful.
The film was for lack of a better word Amazing. The costumes, the music, the cinematography, the story, Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman and did I say the costumes?
Costumes by Rodarte.
I fell in love with the white dress Natalie Portman wore when they announced her as the 'Swan Queen' I couldn't find a good image so have shown the illustration, it's beautiful.
Feathers, Feathers, Feathers... <3
