Gothic Grace

Inspired by Natalie Portman’s most recent role in the movie “Black Swan,” in theaters on December 3, 2010, fashion has taken an eerily elegant and slightly gothic turn. Portman plays a veteran ballet dancer amidst the world of New York City ballet in the psychological thriller that has many dark twists and turns. Designers such as Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent, Haute Hippie and Club Monaco have incorporated aspects of this macabre film, in the form of prima ballerina tutu-esque skirts, coquettish corset dresses and ostrich-plumed clutches into their most recent fashion lines. I encourage all you fashionistas to take center stage and embrace your inner goth!
