Celebrities Who Rocked the Balletcore Look-GadgetAny
Sydney Sweeney LACMA Art + Film

Sydney Sweeney, star of the movie “Euphoria,” attended the LACMA Art + Film Gala on Saturday dressed in a light pink, fanciful Giambattista Valli couture gown, with her hair pulled back and opaque tights that would have been at home in a “Swan Lake” production. The 25-year-old Emmy nominee shared adorable photos of herself as a little girl attending dance recitals on Instagram in addition to shots of herself wearing the fluffy dress and toe shoes. Additionally, Sweeney’s pastel ensemble was the closest interpretation of the balletcore aesthetic yet.

However, the en pointe trend has been brewing for months on runways, among supermodels who aren’t working, and on TikTok, where the hashtag #balletcore has 105.9 million views. On-air style and trend expert Brittney Levine told The Post, “Balletcore is taking ballet’s most recognizable wardrobe staples like leotards, open backs, tulle skirts, wrap sweaters and ballet flats … and turning them into our everyday looks.”

Furthermore, when Tessa Thompson attended the Met Gala in a lavish Carolina Herrera gown made of tulle in May, she gave the fashion trend a spin. Balletcore, however, is not just spectacular, red-carpet confections. It also has a much more laid-back aspect.

For instance, Bella Hadid wore pastel leg warmers in August, and more recently, she wore grey sweats with pink ballet flats and a stylish headband. In addition, Hailey Bieber last week was rehearsal-ready in a light pink unitard with thin, delicate straps and a cutout in the front.

Levine also stated, “Many of the looks stem from athleisure, but it’s more sweet, feminine, dainty, and frilly if you will.”

On another note, balletcore is quite popular among fashion influencers, much like other social media-driven fashion trends like cottagecore and coastal grandmother. The look has been adopted by designers like Simone Rocha and Molly Goddard, and this summer, Zara worked with the New York City Ballet on a line.

Additionally, despite the fact that the word “balletcore” is inextricably associated with Gen Z, fashion and ballet have been collaborating for generations. More recently, in 2010, after the release of Darren Aronofsky’s suspenseful film “Black Swan,” starring Natalie Portman, the fashion industry went crazy for every part of the ballet world’s warm-up attire and costumes. Also, in 1998, Carrie Bradshaw avoided puddle spray from MTA buses in a tutu and pink tank top.

Levine remarked, “I always think of ‘Sex and the City’ ushering in the balletcore trend, because who could forget Sarah Jessica Parker from the Pat Field-era donning the tulle skirt?” She notes that the feminine appearance has a nostalgic allure. “Growing up, every girl wanted to be a prima ballerina.”
