American Ballet Theatre’s Harlequinade is the latest reimagining of a dance classic by the great choreographer Alexei Ratmansky. First performed in 1900, his stunning new vision for our time arrives Jan 17 – 20 at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, CA. The next show’s production will be May 13-May 18 at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York.
Growing up as a dancer taking ballet I fondly remember all of the frilly tutus and costumes. There are so many interpretations of tulle skirts no now available and that are in fashion.
I enjoyed putting together two ballerina inspired looks. One look features a feminine tulle skirt paired with a wrapped sweater top and lace up Sam Edelman Yardley Sandal that reminds me of a ballerina’s rehearsal sweater, tulle skirt and lace up pointe shoes. I added some sparkle with a jeweled statement necklace and retired Swarvoski pin I got from Poshmark. Another look is a lavender tulle skirt dress that was a style choice to be a nod to some of the costumes in Harlequinade. I love wearing my I.N.C. Women’s Reesie Rhinestone Bow Evening Sandals that I have had in my closet to add an extra special touch.
