The World’s Most Rustic Chic Film Scene

I’m not especially a ballet connoisseur, but I do love the 1948 film “The Red Shoes”.  It’s the story of Victoria Page, played by flame-haired Moira Shearer, who dreams of being a world famous ballerina and gets her chance at fame when the opportunity to dance “The Red Shoes” ballet is offered her.  “The Red Shoes” is a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen and is the story of a young girl who puts on the red ballet shoes and dances herself to death.  What a way to go.  Check out this movie if you’ve never seen it.  I believe the cinematography and color are the most beautiful I have ever seen.

The scene here shows Vicky on her way to meet Lermontov, the great conductor/Svengali who plays cat and mouse with her and her career.  The scene is really just a showcase for the French designer Jacques Fath to have Moira in a fashion show, but what a Rustic Chic fashion show it is!  (Crown optional.)
