Valentino X New York City Ballet

Valentino recently created 25 costumes for four works, including one new ballet choreographed by Peter Martins and one by British choreographer Christopher Wheeldon.  The finale, “Bal de Couture,” is a world premiere choreographed by NYCB’s ballet master-in-chief Peter Martins, with music by Tchaikovsky, who happens to be Valentino’s favorite composer. Valentino drew only 30 sketches to get his perfect sixteen. “What you see now, I drew it seven months ago,” the designer says. “I told Peter I would love to do some black-and-white, white-and-black, very graphic. And of course I wanted to put some red inside because it’s Valentino red. I love the surprise of the color inside.”

Please refer to Vogue for full details.

The Tutu Project Debuts

To celebrate the National Ballet of Canada’s 60th anniversary, the company embarked on a massive exhibition with a collection of 60 unique tutus for 60 years. Named The Tutu Project , designers and artists gathered at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts last night for the opening of the exhibit, where we finally able to see fellow creations , such as a black feather creation by Giles Deacon (on loan from the English National Ballet) to a “Tutu Cozy” by the Hudson’s Bay Company (complete with the Canadian retailer’s signature stripes and matching mittens!).

My tutu is inspired by the famous bronze sculpture Unique Forms of Continuity in Space (1913) by Umberto Boccioni, one of my favourite artists from the futurist period. I am so proud and honored to be part of this amazing project!

If you are in Toronto please come check it out!

Neon Brights

Bright neon colors is what this spring is all about. The in-your-face color palette might seem a little immature for some, but examples from designers like Dannijo and Tom Binns show how neon has graduated for a grown-up fashion statement.

Wedding Do’s

I LOVE weddings. I am lucky enough to have found the man of my dreams and we were married in the summer of 2009. Though I loved my own wedding dress by designer Jenny Yoo, I cannot help continuing to look at other wedding dresses long after my wedding was over. I am very particular when it comes to style and weddings, and while I know every girl has her own ideas of her dream wedding dress, here are a few NYLONBALLERINA tips to keeping your day fashion forward, stylish, and you.


You are going to be in this dress all day. Unless you have a second party dress for the reception. But for most brides with a budget, one dress is it. So if you only get one dress, make sure you are comfortable in it, that you can sit down and stand up and you are not pulling or tugging on your dress all day long. It’s not cute.


Even if you love huge cupcake dresses ( which I don’t, but that’s just me), make sure you have the type of body that can wear a huge dress. If you are short, it will probably make you look shorter. If you love strapless but your girls would rather you wear straps, don’t wear a strapless gown. I love love love Coco Rocha’s dropped waist Zac Posen gown, but remember she is tall and therefore can wear a dropped waist- not to mention she is a supermodel and super gorgeous… but not everyone can pull that look off.


Don’t pull a Heidi Montag and wear everything- tiara, veil, princess dress, and too many accessories. If you love accessories and wish to accessorise the sh*t out of your look, wear a simple dress and then add your arm party or neck party. But don’t look like the bridal store threw up on you. Take a page out of Harpers Bizarre Joanna Hillman’s look – modern, sexy, tasteful and simple.

Rule#4: HAVE FUN!

As much as I love wedding dresses and weddings, don’t lose sight of what’s important: Your husband/wife/life partner. A wedding day is the beginning of a lifetime of marriage –  love, commitment, and the two of you. If you are more concerned about your wedding than your marriage, you may need to get your priorities in order….
