ABT's Isabella Boylston Is Your New Style Icon

December 1, 2015

Ugghhhh life is so unfair, you guys. Why is it that the most beautiful, most talented ballerinas are also—almost without exception—sartorially gifted, too? What is it about being a top-tier ballet dancer that gives you crazy fashion spidey senses? Is there some mystical connection between gorgeously archy feet and the ability to come up with effortless, perfect outfits mere mortals could never pull off?

I don’t know. What I do know is that impossibly chic American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston is my style spirit animal. And she recently shared her fashion secrets with Glamour magazine. And that makes me happy enough to see past the fact that I am SO JEALOUS OF HER LIIIIIIFE OMG.

Oh fer PRETTY. (photo by Katie Friedman for Glamour)

There’s nothing especially earth-shattering about her advice—skinny jeans and t-shirts are always great, you can find serious gems for basically no money at thrift stores, cool leggings are completely acceptable street attire, dressing up is AWESOME when you have designer friends who can create gowns for you—but that doesn’t make it any less fun to read. And the accompanying photos, naturally, are fantastic.

Go drool over the whole story here. You’re welcome.
