ABT Dancers Model Christian Siriano

Remember back in September, when we told you about Christian Siriano's gorgeous Spring 2013 collection? It was inspired in part by American Ballet Theatre's performances of Frederick Ashton's The Dream, and the diaphanous tulle dresses in pastel hues certainly looked fit for a ballerina.

Well, now the collection is hitting stores, and Siriano's designs are being modeled by ballerinas. Siriano chose three beautiful dancers from the ABT Studio Company—Katerina Eng, Isabelle Seiler and Carolyn Lippert—to wear his dresses for the collection's new ads. "I wanted the video to portray the dancers as if each were dreaming about the costumes they'd be wearing in a performance," he told Teen Vogue.

Watch the three dancers glide ethereally through NYC's iconic Waldorf Astoria Hotel in the video below—then scroll down to take a look at a few still photographs from the campaign.

Beat the Cheat: Combat Incorrect Jump Landings With These Targeted Fitness Exercises

As dancers, we all have our vices—those little technique cheats that we know are incorrect, and we try our best to fix whenever we can remember...but at the end of the day, we just can't seem to banish them for good. After all, these cheats usually appear to help us: They can get our legs higher and our petit allégro a little faster, not to mention help us crank out that one extra rotation in a turn we dream about. Unfortunately, cheating proper technique also sets dancers up for a myriad injuries caused by improper alignment and undue stress on the body.
