I came across this photograph of Anna Pavlova in the LIFE magazine archive on Google, on the same day that I read about this Rodarte costume exhibit. The costumes designed by the Mulleavy sisters for Black Swan appear to be strongly inspired by the costume above. I'm always mesmerized by ballet costumes, they're so mysterious and dreamlike, their other worldly qualities succeed in transporting the viewer from reality into an alternate time and space.
