Portman’s ballerina shoes

Yesterday I popped into a dance store net to my place Freed of London, looking for something to go with an outfit I’ve in mind. The store specializes in ballet shoes and the friendly staff told me that they supplied Natalie Portman with special made shoes for her during her training and making of the great movie Black Swan. So now you know the shoemaker that was paired with her dreamy like Rodarte outfits.

It’s worth stopping by if you’re a ballet fan, the walls are covered with signed images of the greatest dancers through times, even Portman left her’s behind. Unfortunately due to copyright issues I was not allowed to shoot in there except for these beautiful shoes.

The pair above were never on Portman’s feet though, they belong to a prima ballerina at the Royal Opera in London, pretty cool as well right.

Below a new pair waiting to be special made for another ballerina.
