Ballet at its best

One of the fascinations that I had with Aronofsky's Black Swan was the costume design. Amy Westcott, the costume designer and artist of these sketches, was inspired to make beautiful, delicate and body-provoking ballet clothes that also translated to Nina's the life. The clothing so brilliantly captivated the emotional life of the the character, whose demise slowly unfolds on screen. Aided and abetted by the brilliant visionary designers of Rodarte, this collaboration of thoughtful and graceful designs were perfectly suited for Nina, as she turned from the endearing damsel in distress to the inevitable Black Swan.
