 - Apr 17, 2012
The ballet has been stunning and intriguing audiences for ages, but after the release of the 2012 film 'Black Swan,' ballerinas became the newest 'it' thing, and these ballerina innovations demonstrate why this type of dance is here to stay.

From its fitness benefits to the breathtaking fashion, ballet is a truly stunning work of art and form of dance. While most ballet classes and productions surely don't feature the disturbing darkness that actresses Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis portrayed in the film, the fashion world took notice of the dramatic looks and made them their own.

From red carpet fashions to countless photo shoots, it is clear that ballerina innovations will continue to pop up and mesmerize audiences everywhere.
