    a dress to die for!

     

    With so much workmanship to swoon over, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have crafted a gown that is perfect for a sultry princess ~ I’m lusting after this Valentino dress.

    dark beauty

     

    Time seems to disappear into a big black hole ~

    and in the darkness is mystery, unexpected pleasures and glimpses of light.

    the swan queen

     

    Black Swan :: Natalie Portman stars in director, Darren Aronofsky’s movie about a dancer living on the edge of reality, and explores the challenges of striving for perfection.

    It portrays the story of an emotionally brittle ballet dancer who slowly unravels after winning the role of Swan Queen in “Swan Lake.” where she must dance the parts of an innocent, fragile White Swan and her dark, sensual, evil twin, the Black Swan.

    Darren Aronofsky’s ballet-psycho-thriller Black Swan 

    grand jete’d onto the cinephile radar with an air of incipient triumph.
