Fashion meets Art: Georgia O' Keeffe

Artist Georgia O' Keeffe described her work as a means to express the "wideness and wonder of the world." The composition, color palettes and scale of the images certainly speak to this idea of wonder. Dating back to the time of their creation, her paintings of flowers have often been interpreted to have feminine qualities. Interestingly, designer Karl Lagerfeld seemed to invoke this spirit of powerful femininity in his Spring 2015 collection

In a literal sense, the Chanel fabrics mirror the floral motifs seen in O'Keeffe's paintings.

Flawless makeup, tiaras, tutus and pointe shoes…these are tools that help create the dream of beauty we experience with ballet. As with any performance, there is more that goes on behind the scenes to craft the final image.
With the position of an insider, dancer Kyle Froman began photographing the magical world of ballet while still with the NYCB. His photographs capture elements we may never see as an audience member.
