Natalie Portman's ballet outfit from Black Swan...

In Darren Aronofsky's fabulously dark and unsettling Black Swan, Natalie Portman plays 'Nina Sayers', a ballerina in a New York City dance company who is offered the opportunity of a lifetime, to dance the 'Swan Queen' in Swan Lake.

The artistic director believes Nina is the perfect choice to play the innocent and graceful 'White Swan', but doesn't know whether the ballet dancer has the intensity and sensuality to play the role of the darker 'Black Swan'.

  1. This would be a very very easy outfit to mimic if someone wanted this exact same outfit, I would love to wear this during ballet class and warmups. Maybe I'll buy a similar leo, skirt, shrug, and leg warmers.

  2. i'd luff to see that ! im mad wif the pale colors of pink, creme and grey ~ also the makeup used for Nina in the film, though not the 'black swan' version. rather scary i'd say ;p
