Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Black Swan’ has caused a stir amongst the movie and fashion world alike, with the entrancing nature of Natalie Portman’s Oscar-worthy performance emulated in the ethereal Rodarte designs.
High-end and high-street could not fail to be captured, with chiffon and sheer lace a flutter from catwalk to counter. American Apparel is a one-stop shop with its Sleeveless Lace Chiffon Dress, £48 (the sorbet shades of lilac and peach are especially refreshing) and Double-Layered Shirred Waist Skirt, £40 (in bone or tan to provide a neutral staple piece). Match the latter with a cropped t-shirt silk headscarf for an effortless day look.
To evoke the mystic of the tormented black swan, try this Black Cut Out Back Shirt (TopShop, £38) over lace trimmed cycle shorts and barely-there tights. Make-up in this case should be utterly theatrical, with a dramatic grey smoked eye and show-stopping plum lip.
