Models.com explores the connections between dance and modeling, posing the question “would Naomi Campbell or Karlie Kloss be as dynamic on the runway without their ballet training?”
To say fashion draws inspiration from dance is an understatement. Movies may excite, music can captivate, but the power of dance is almost visceral. Photographers, designers and editors have long looked to the work of Legnani or Nureyev when in search of inspiration and today’s stars from Benjamin Millepied to Misty Copeland wield influence from the pages of Vogue to the runways of Paris.
Photographers Alex & Iggy capture Gillian Deery and James Lasky, two classically-trained dancers who are also pursuing modeling careers. Their exquisite ‘On Point’ poses showcase the often ethereal serenity and beauty of dancers flying solo or encapsulated in each others beings.
