DANCE IN VOGUE

DANCE IN VOGUEVogue Russia published a special edition fully dedicated to ballet.

The love story between fashion and ballet started a long while ago. Fashion designers sought inspiration in famous ballet shows and/or designed costumes for the stage (take Coco Chanel, for example), prima ballerinas set fashion trends… One cannot imagine the 20th century fashion without Diagilev’s Ballets Russes.

All the greatest photographers – Baron Adolphe de Meyer, Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Arthur Elgort – loved photographing ballet and ballet dancers for a very obvious reason – it is all beauty and magic. In this edition you will find the best of Vogue archive photographs of ballet dancers and ballet-themed photoshoots made during the 13 years of Vogue Russia‘s existence.

Each picture comes with comments and notes made by ballet critics and dancers themselves. A highly collectible piece!

On the cover: Maya Plisetskaya by Irvin Penn, 1959
