Alvin Ailey + Spring Dresses = OMG I Can't

June 11, 2014

The secret’s out: Dancers are the ultimate in GLAM. (Obviously!) The world of high fashion realized this a while ago, and recent press is confirming what us dancers already knew. (See Teen Vogue‘s “Strictly Ballet” and Free People’s ballet collection—which, with the help of Ballet Zaida’s Oliver Endahl, eventually produced some beautiful dance photography.)

This week, Elle magazine followed suit with “Alvin Ailey Dancers Take on Spring’s Best Dresses.” Yes, guys, this is just as glorious as it sounds. The exquisite women of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Ailey II are the perfect models to show off the fun, flirty dresses of the season. Warning: Desire to shop will increase ten-fold after viewing these photos. Check out some of our favorites, below.
