    Very black swan inspired…but the styling and makeup just dont work…it lacks the purity and fragility that I am looking for….

      Yeah, just trying a bit too hard as well on the Black Swan-Rodarte front as well.

    The dancers are magnificent and if the shots were only of them I would honestly love this but the placement of the model seems forced and awkward.

    Julia Stegner would’ve fitted perfectly in this shot.

      YOU NAME IT!

  • Hiven

    So relevant, so brilliant.

  • Anna

    yeah, now everything about balet will be soon connected with Black Swan. It’s stupid, becouse before it not everyone even knew, that Swan Lake is written by Tchaikovsky. Now everybody will be experts of balet. Hate it. Maybe this photoshoot is not inspired by Black Swan, maybe it’s inspired great russian balet culture and tradition, every great balet was created there.

    • Kris

      It’s definitely Black Swan inspired, it refernces Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis on the first page.

    WHY DO THIS SHIT SITE REMOVE ALL MY COMMENTS THAT ARENT – OH BEUAITUFL, BUT JUST ANSWERING THE PICTURES!? ASSHOLES!
    I SAID IT SUCKED FOR IT WAS NO GRACIOUS AT ALL FROM THE DANCERS!!!!!!!!!!!!they are like dead fishes and the model cant pose. this is censure fashiongonerouge, and it smells!

    the set is really pretty and so is Denisa, her face looks gorgeous. too bad she can’t pose that well. her body language is just blech. sorry.

    the clothes are beautiful, but i just don’t feel like this is original enough

  • Bee

    I love the theme, but not the model – her legs are very short and her proportions are strange! And she looks bored and her body language is not strong. I think with a different model this would have been great..!

  • Fernanda

    No, no, no, no and no. The ballet’s soft atmosphere got nothing to do with this model and her forced poses. And I also agree with Anna.

    i love ballerinas! great photos

    I agree that Denisa doesn’t really fit in because she poses too much instead of being part of the whole set and looking natural…too bad because she is a great model

    i can’t say that i disagree with the above criticisms, but for me this photo shoot still works. Denisa is very beautiful, so are clothes. yes, her poses could be better, but this still looks lovely!

    The dancers steal the show.

    I only like the last two photos. The rest seem a little awkward in terms of placement – so maybe they wanted her to be the “star of the show”, but the star should still look like she’s part of the show and not completely disjointed from the rest of the cast…

    She is out-shown by the ballerinas.

    Jason Schmidt is a portrait and landscape photographer. And these images are true to his style. I imagine they are simply meant to be fashion portraits.

    She’s like apart of the picture, she does not fit in! I can see lovely ballet dancers…… and a forced model.

  • Sophia

    the model is outshined by the dancers. good idea, but not quite working for me.

    The ballet theme – YAWN.
