It's no secret that we love a good fashion/dance collaboration, which is why we're fangirling over model Shalom Harlow. And this model took the whole "dance, but make it fashion" vibe to an entirely new level during a Versace photo shoot—and we're in awe. She paired her stylish, spring jumpsuit with an arsenal of dance moves that Michael Jackson himself would be jealous of. Her performance was so captivating that everyone at the shoot couldn't help but cheer her on. Who can blame them—her moves are lit 🔥!

Just for Fun

While we love fall's crisp air, pumpkin spice treats, and, of course, the official start of the ballet season, there are some downsides. Cooler weather means that unfortunately it's no longer practical to throw on shorts over your leotard and pretend it's a shirt. Does the thought of putting together outfits for autumn stress you out? Don't worry—we've got you covered. We've pulled some of our favorite dancers' street styles from past issues of Pointe to give you the fall fashion inspiration that you're looking for.

Miami City Ballet Principal Simone Messmer

Kyle Froman for Pointe

Simone Messmer's ensemble points out the biggest difference between summer and fall: Jackets! And not heavy, practical winter parkas, but fun, light jackets with the power to instantly transform any outfit. Messmer's selection comes with quite a bit of history; it's her best friend's father's army trench. We also love Messmer's slip-on shoes; they're a reminder to wear all of your favorite no-socks-necessary shoes this season before the snow starts to fall.

Dancer to Dancer

It's the most wonderful time of year for fashion and fierce fall fashion/dance collabs are all over the place. But we had to pick our jaws up off of the floor after watching the new dancetastic Marc Fisher LTD footwear commercials. The shoe brand created one of the most compelling ads we've seen thanks to the fancy footwork of six dancers and the choreography of "So You Think You Can Dance" alum Ellenore Scott. We talked with the multi-talented artist to find out how choreographing for a fashion commercial compares to creating routines for live shows on Broadway, like King Kong (which opens Nov. 8th). Check out our interview where Scott shares tips on what you can do to also become a choreographer in the biz one day.

If Jenna Dewan has taught us anything these past few months, it's that dancing can truly heal the soul. Shortly after she and Channing Tatum split (and hearts around the world collectively broke), Dewan released a beautifully emotional video of herself dancing on a beach at sunset. It was pure, raw catharsis, and proof that the best way to handle your feelings is to dance through them. Now, in Harper's Bazaar, Dewan is dancing again—this time with a little help from a lot of sequins, fishnets, and shoulder pads.

You probably remember the big Free People faux pas from 2014 where the popular clothing brand featured an untrained dancer (sickled feet and all) in its ad campaign, sparking a lot of shade from fuming dancers around the world. Well, Free People learned from its mistake and has been enlisting real dancers for some of their artsy promos ever since. From featuring The Washington Ballet's Nardia Boodoo in their lifestyle blog to including dance classes taught by Dance Theater of Harlem ballet dancer Alison Stroming in their pop-up shop fitness event, Free People appears to have caught on to the fact that we want to see real dancers dancing and not models mimicking an art that actually takes years of blood, sweat, and hard work to master.
