People don’t always think of ballet and style as belonging in the same category, but that’s just because they haven’t obsessively scrutinized ballet-wear. Now that “Billy Elliot” has snagged the Tony for Best Musical (along with a slew of other trophies), I think that is going to change. Here are the biggest ballet-inspired fashions you have actually been wearing since you saw your first Nutcracker.

The old-school trend from Swan Lake is clearly the headband. It is only recently, however, that feathers have become trendy. Too bad feathers weren’t in when I danced this ballet many years ago. It’s tougher than you think to pull off the molten look.
