So, recent ballet obsession plus weird feather fixation... Come on, It was only a matter of time before I posted this!
Love Natalie Portman in everything she's ever been in and supposedly she's being considered for an Oscar for her role as Nina in Black Swan. Makes sense since those Oscar luvvies tend to smile on actors/actresses who have transformed physically for a role (Charlize Theron in Monster much?) and, um, check out the biceps on Portman! After seeing Cinderella on Tuesday I'm still filled with this weird sense of awe about the sheer athleticism of ballet and while I'm sure they will have used a double for some of the more challenging sequences, there's no doubt Natalie will have had to develop much of the technical ability herself - that alone deserves serious recognition!
I don't know about you, but I get CHILLS every time I watch this. Looks fabulously spooky and psychologically creepy - Love that last clip...
According to Tavi from Style Rookie, Rodarte designed the costumes - and if anyone would know she would! J'adore! Can't wait to see that exquisite black swan costume up on the big screen.
IMDB says it's out in January - roll on then because I'm desperate to see it!
Read more about the costumes there, but in the mean time here are some pics (all from Style Rookie):
