Although I am yet to lay eyes on this Oscar-nominated movie, I can assure you that I am jumping out of my skin to see this artistic pshyco-drama. Natalie Portman is amazing; as a person and an actress, and I feel that she would be the type of friend anyone would love to have. I have seen all her movies and to date my favourites are Brothers and The Other Boleyn Girl. This aside, I have to say that the hype of the The Black Swan and it's incredible beauty has made me look at ballerina get-up in a whole other way. Black lipstick. Jewels. Feathers. Head pieces and all that other wonderful dark ballerina beauty is rather inspiring. Wouldn't it just be wonderful to dress like this everyday?
