Christian Lacroix's Magnificent Ballet Costumes

March 14, 2012

Fashion and ballet have always played well together. On the heels of the announcement that Rodarte and Gilles Mendel will design costumes for New York City Ballet’s spring gala comes this news: Christian Lacroix’s costumes for Paris Opéra Ballet’s La Source (which premiered last fall) will have their own exhibit at The National Costume Museum in Moulins, France. The show, featuring a “scene-by-scene look” at Lacroix’s work for the ballet, will run from June 16 until December 31.

For those of us who can’t make it to France, here’s a slideshow of some of Lacroix’s gorgeous creations. Enjoy!
