The pictures are a little different from a fashion photography perspective in that the models can't usually move like that, so images like this would normally be impossible to get.  I have to say I love the second image (and those must be some seriously stretchy pants!), but I dislike the rather banal orientalism of the third picture.

Love the belted jackets!!!  Almost like "le smoking"!  Fabulous!  Hooray David!

I find it a refreshing idea: to use a dancer as model. I do tire of all the reed thin models in the same standard poses.


Yeah, they should start using ballerinas. Because THEY're not reed thin....



They have lots of muscle tone. And it depends on the body type: a Sara Mearns or Carrie Imler does not look like a stick. Neither for that matter do Aurélie Dupont, Marie-Agnès Gillot or Agnes Letestu.


I'm guessing you're thinking of the Russian predilection for super-thin body types (Zakharova, Lopatkina, perhaps), but they do have muscle, and apparently, stamina. Still, I prefer more meat on the bones.

another tweet from Ariane Bavelier, Le Figaro dance critic:

David Hallberg croisé chez le physical therapiste du City Center annonce son retour cet été ni à ny ni à Moscou mais au Tokyo ballet.


David Hallberg, encountered at the City Center physical therapist's, announces he will be back this summer neither in NY or Moscow, but at the Tokyo Ballet.

(Tokyo Ballet's website schedule currently lists nothing after Bayadere in June)

I have a question. Why do people love to bring up and give credit to Paris Opera for David's training when he only studied there for 1 year? Shouldn't Ballet Arizona School, and most specifically his teacher Kee Juan Han, receive most of the credit?
