Pas De Deux

I was at the Ballet last night. It was amazing as always but reminded me I am a long way from the Joyce Theater. (I’ve been taking ballet classes again). So not only was the performance a real kicker in the reality department, it also prompted a reflection upon the ballet flat. I have to say this foot fetish has never really received a standing ovation from me; primarily because Tory Burch more than put the nail in its coffin four years ago. I think the onslaught of TB-clad toes scarred me so badly that I have never fully recovered to a place of acceptance. That said, I do appreciate the concept of the ballet flat. They definitely have their leading role in certain looks -- skinny jeans, a short, flirty dress or a Spring mini. But it’s important you add a little pas de deux to your selection – some color, a print, even a little embellishment. Just no more TB’s, please. (Richard Avedon)

LC Shop-It Reco: Here are some of my bravo worthy picks – JCrew, Miu Miu and Christian Louboutin.
