Black Swan style gets an Indian flavour
Ballet fashion shows no signs of slowing down, following the success of Darren Aronofsky's hit psychological thriller Black Swan.

According to Asha Chowdary in the Times of India, tutus, tights and ballet shoes are in as fans strive to emulate Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis' looks in the film.

Fashion designer Anu Nagappa said the style caught on in the west and is now moving to India in the form of sheer skirts, harem pants and layered dresses.

"We are beginning to see Black Swan's light and dark ballerina influences, with pink pumps and lacy black tights appearing on the high street," she told the newspaper.

Ms Nagappa added that youngsters are able to experiment with both sides, whether the White Swan's "soft, innocent pale colours in chiffon and tight tulle" or the Black Swan's "harsher, harder lace, colours and corseted shapes".

In an online vote by readers of Hello Magazine, the gown Natalie Portman wore to the Oscars was recently named the most stunning of the night.
