En Jeté! Karl Lagerfeld Designs Ballet Costumes
My posts about Karl Lagerfeld are much sparser than they used to be. At one time I joked that I should call my blog 'Dresses and Kaiser Karl'. I think after the Diet Coke butler everything else has been a bit anti-climactic. But I always enjoy seeing him in action and the BBC has filmed his final fitting for the costumes he designed to mark the centenary of the legendary dance group Ballets Russes.
I have two questions: First, the male dancers must have special inserts for their pants, right? There's a shaped and padded consistency to that bulge that just can't be natural. Second, what do you call a male ballerina? A ballerino?
Check out the moves at the end of their performance. Even more impressive than what I saw in my hip hop class yesterday.
