Fashion on Pointe

Chanel Spring 2011 Couture

Though Black Swan's cinematic debut has long since passed, fashion seems to still be enamored with the world of ballet. In shades of white, cream and blush, styles seem to float down the runways with feminine touches of ruffles, tulle, bows and beading.

This Spring's couture collection from Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, has a heavy dose of stage-worthy romance in its many shades of pink.

Feathers suggest a pas de deux from Swan Lake in John Galliano's Spring 2011 couture collection for Christian Dior.

Leaving the soft and sweet shades of blush, fashion takes a turn for the darkside with its contrasts in black and white.
