Audrey These are custom Louboutin pointe shoes for Dita Von Teese. I really like the idea of mixing fields of art, and that's really evident here in which an artistic tool, pointe shoes, are utilizes for a fashion purpose.
flower tutu- my best friend did a gorgeous dance in a costume like this. Too cute
Ballerinas aren't as "delicate" as they look. They literally put their entire body weight on their big toes. Yeah, don't mess with them. You don't want to feel the force of their big toes! They also have enough muscle strength to kick straight through your spine.
