Today in ballet news that makes us happy: The New York City Ballet fall gala was last night, which means the Dance Spirit office ground to a halt this morning as we all drooled over photos of the gorgeous dresses (onstage and off).
As with years past, NYCB paired couture designer with choreographers. For fall 2016, the lineup included Annabelle Lopez Ochoa with Rosie Assoulin, Lauren Lovette with Narciso Rodriguez, Justin Peck with Dries Van Noten and Peter Walker with Jason Wu. We've been waiting oh so patiently to see the costumes evolve from sketches, and become real.
Check out some of the results of that evolution, below:
