Valentin Yudashkin sent down an absolutely gorgeous and delicately feminine collection for his Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Flower appliqué and immaculately precise stitching accompanied ethereal silhouettes. There were billowing skirts, elegant daywear and pink floral pieces that personified Hans Christian Andersen’s Thumbelina. Hand-painted watercolors and pastels juxtaposed the metallic filigree in a strikingly luxurious way. When you lacquer something in gold, it becomes that much more precious.

The models looked like walking vases - an open canvas for blooming life and rejuvenation. The dresses could be mistaken for floral couture, as if a garden was blooming directly on them. A palette that consisted of the colors of clouds could only be fit for a modern Disney princess and her woodland nymph counterpart.

There are two reasons why people don’t talk about things; either it doesn’t mean anything to them, or it means everything.

my friend: i met a guy
me: i just started a new tv show

Our work is taken from us through no fault of our own, except maybe the fault of choosing to dance at all. But nobody warns a ten-year-old that he will be finished at forty, and what ten-year-old would listen? I doubt that even one of us would not choose to do it again, for we are believers. No dancer will deny the value, the total value, of his dedication. Who could ever say after giving so much of himself —- far more than he ever conceived existed —- that it was not the highest possible pursuit, to use and shape all one’s energy to create beauty?
Toni Bentley (corps de ballet dancer with the New York City Ballet) in her memoir, Winter Season: A Dancer’s Journal (via kristinashapran)


On the internet: Ugh I hate people so much
Applying for a job: I love working with people and I'm very sociable

Jack Barakat hit a million followers on Twitter today

I cannot believe one million people out there want to read his tweets about dicks. I cannot believe I am one of them.

What a legend.
