PARIS (Reuters) - Polka-dotted flamenco skirts jostled with frothy pastel tutus in Christian Dior's haute couture collection Monday, in a riotous celebration of dance styles from the tango to the can-can. <a href=http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20030707/media_nm/france_fashion_dc_6 target=_blank>more on Yahoo</a>

I actually thought the model in the article above was a Barbie doll, at first glance. They've finally achieved it!

No, I checked - it is a Barbie Doll, item #7236 from their catalogue.

So Barbies have visible ribs now. Interesting.

Ballet slippers point to a new fashion trend
By JESSICA HURT
01sep03

SHE looks like she has just stepped out of ballet class but this is, in fact, the latest fashion trend in street wear.

Femininity and romance are taking over the fashion world, from wide length pants and pretty skirts to the ballet slipper and headband.

Veronika Maine marketing and public relations manager Kirsty Brockhoff said the look this season was "gently eclectic and strongly individual".

"Feminine paisley, floral and stripe prints in soft shades of apricot, blush, khaki and vanilla add a touch of vintage romance to practical pieces," she said.

Ms Brockhoff said wide-leg trousers and gentle wrap tops were the signature style of Veronika Maine and helped to create the "ballet girl" look.

My friends tell me that ballet is all the rage in the fashion world at the moment. There was also an article on the theme in the Times Magazine last week (not on the web).

Claudia Croft — Wardrobe mistress
From The Sunday Times

Q. I’m 16, and want to wear fashionable, girlie footwear, but as a size 9 I find it hard. Where can I find cheap shoes that fit? And, at 6ft tall, what style should I wear?

A. I recommend ballet slippers. Kate Moss practically lives in hers, wearing them with miniskirts and tight jeans — and because they’re flat, you won’t tower over your friends. Topshop has a good selection (from £25; www.topshop.co.uk) and sells them up to size 9. If you want more variety, French Sole specialises in flat ballet pumps, also up to size 9 (from £45; www.frenchsole.com).

Ballet pumps make an appearance:

Fighting forty
"I can't do maths," I shriek. Fifty drag queens swivel in my direction. By Anonymous from The Times

SUNDAY 3.40AM, NEW YORK: Have been awake for 40 minutes despite drinking two litres of water on the plane. Close my eyes and think boring thoughts. Jennifer, my friend on New York magazine, has sent me 19 text messages in the past week regarding weather conditions, all of them contradictory. Panic about missing the children. Panic about missing hot shows. Panic about not knowing which shows are hot and which are frozen. Jennifer’s information has been sadly unreliable lately. But, then, she is leaving New York soon to marry a plastic surgeon she met on a shoot in Orlando.

Ballerina trend makes its pointe with graceful styles.

Women of all ages -- and different levels of limberness -- have an opportunity this season to live out their childhood fantasy of being a prima ballerina. <a href=http://www.indystar.com/articles/1/204034-7191-108.html target=_blank>more</a>

I want to write upfront that I am ALL for ballerina fashion! But in this era of Super Size Me meals, I wonder how this new trend will go over in North America? Somehow I just can’t envision many women with the bodies to dress to the 9s in a tutu like the very lovely Winona Ryder! Tutus may be very fashionable but I wonder how many opportunities women will have to wear them? It’s not something you would want to wear to the office or even on a night out on the town. I believe it’s best that real ballerinas wear tutus in an opera house or the privacy of my home!

Winona, are you doing anything tonight? Would you like to watch Swan Lake with me?

You may think of ballet as a dying art form that has little status on your social standing, but, to prove you wrong, Prada have created a shoulder bag from used shoes worn by famous dancers.

Is Winona Ryder beautiful enough to merit gracing the cover of CriticalDance? :)

She is a cutie and from the town that I live in now, Petaluma. I will let you know if there is a sighting.
