Is Belinskaya wearing pointe shoes here...? (As Clara, second girl from left and next to Lydia Rubtsova's Marianna...)

not a silly question at all.
and yes, the slippers on this student dancer appear to be pointeshoes.
as to whether or not she danced on pointe at any time in the ballet or even actually performed in them instead of just wearing them for the photos, i can't say.
