How Do You Make Online Shopping Even More Tempting? Add Dance.
Shopaholics, consider yourselves warned. What we're about to show you may be too much for you to handle.
Just last week, NOWNESS (an online platform that posts daily content about some aspect of luxury lifestyle—art, fashion, travel, food, design, etc.) posted a video short entitled Mine All Mine, with choreography by Italian Paolo Mangiola. The video features five stunning contemporary dancers from Sadler's Wells Theatre in London, England, modeling pieces by top fashion designers like Louis Vuitton, La Perla, Kenzo, Bottega Veneta, Haider Ackermann, Rick Owens and Maison Martin Margiela. In the video, the dancers move in and out of the clothing, seamlessly swapping items as they dance throughout the space.
But here's the dangerous part: This video is an interactive, "shoppable" video. Basically, this means that you can click on the clothes you like as the dancers move in them. Then, when you're done watching the video, you can go back and review the items you selected. AND BUY THEM.
If you dare to watch the interactive version of the video, click here. But if you don't trust yourself, here's a "safe" version of the video, where you can just enjoy the stunning visuals of dance and high fashion without the shopping temptation:
"Late Late Show" host James Corden was one of the many, many people shocked by President Trump's sudden decision to ban transgender people from the military yesterday. And he decided to voice his outrage in the way most likely to rile a President who's uncomfortable with anything "un-manly": through a big, beautiful, extra-sparkly song-and-dance routine.
In addition to training, competing and winning titles in just about every style you can think of, 13-year-old Kaylee Quinn is a regular on the sci-fi drama "Stitchers," playing the younger version of the show's main character. Her path in dance hasn't been without challenges, though. Last summer, Kaylee won the Hope Award at her regional Youth America Grand Prix, but wasn't sure she'd be able to compete at the NYC finals due to a broken foot. Patience paid off: With her doctor's blessing, Kaylee danced her variations in flat shoes and won the gold medal.
Week 2 of Misty Copeland as guest judge, week 2 of merciless cuts...How can the final episodes of "World of Dance" possibly live up to the sheer dramaaaaaaaaa of last night's episode? Well, based on the nail-biting results dished out by Copeland and Co. last night, the competition is only going to get fiercer from here. Without further ado, last night's results, as told by Kween Misty.
Every ballet dancer knows the time, sweat, and occasional tears the art form demands. But many non-dancers are clueless about just how much work a ballet dancer puts into perfecting his or her dancing. So when the mainstream crowd recognizes our crazy work ethic, we'll accept the round of applause any way it comes—even if it comes via four men in tutus. Yep, we're talking about "The Try Guys Try Ballet" video.
