Degas... Beha...

Edgar Degas' Dancers in blue (circa 1890) and Freja Beha in Interview magazine.

I've never taken a ballet class but I've always had a fascination with them since I was little. And naturally this fascination and interest led me to Degas' paintings of ballerinas. He is one my favorite artists and I feel lucky that I've visited the Musée D'orsay to observe my favorite paintings of his (including the one above). So when I came across this editorial of Freja, I kind of freaked out, in a good way. Love, love, loves it.
