Black Swan

Today I took my timeout, strolling around in my hood, went to cinema and to see Black Swan followed by a good dinner at Arbutus. The movie is fantastic, Portman’s performance is outstanding and the clothes designed by Rodarte are so beautiful. In fact I’m still slightly out of balance after watching the movie, swans and ballet are my achilles as I’ve posted earlier and I’ll probably never forgive my dad for taking me out of ballet school as a child and glued me to a pair of alpine skies instead. Well, I guess you cannot change your past right.

    I’m so jealous of Nathalie’s body! I’ve not seen the movie yet but it’s definitely on my to do list 😉

    Start doing iyengar yoga; that’ll make those alpine sports-strong leg muscles more ballet-flexible 😉

    I went to see the film on Friday and thought it was fantastic, still can’t stop thinking about it!

    By the way, I found a couple of books on Amazon that I think you might really enjoy too – both by Isabella Rossellini, model and actress, she used to be a model for Lancome for many years, the book is called ‘Isabella Rossellini – on pictures and photographers’ – really amazing photos of her by different famous photographers including all the Vogue covers she appeared on, she talks about them and analyses them etc., a delight!

    The other book is her autobiography called ‘Some of me’, she talks about her famous parents, Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini but also about her modeling, photography etc. You can only get them on Amazon for like a couple of pounds, I really think you will love them, especially the first one!
