I have quite an extensive ballet 'wardrobe', which is entirely because I've bought something, worn it to class and disovered it was all wrong because got in my way, or restricted me, or made me self conscious. It's a wardrobe based on trial and error. I now have four basic things which I...

I have no intention of wearing them, but rather keep them a lovely souvenir of our national ballet company and the one which first got me hooked on ballet. Although, there is something a little sad about ballet shoes which will never see any action, as if they are not being allowed to fulfill...

As I was doing this, Prince B suggested he photograph my ballet shoes, because they make me so happy. So that's what happened! So that's really all this is. Photographs of the things that makes me super happy. Queen Michelle

>> My head space got a little bit invaded and clogged up towards the end of my Moscow trip for reasons I won't reveal here and whilst I've still got a ton of Moscow-related posts to go up, I thought I'd go with a light hearted respite that centres around an unexpected pair of shoes from young...

It's been almost 10 years since Kingdom of Style started. Yes, 10 years. We were one of the earliest fashion blogs and haven't really changed at all. Sure, we were youngsters when we started and since then our style has probably changed/evolved, but the format of KoS has never...

So on Saturday Team Kingdom of Style took to the ballet studio with a bunch of Danseuse and sandwiches and shot the products as I wear them in class. Whilst I do generally try and avoid being photographed in a leotard, I felt it was important that you guys see a normal looking woman in...

As some of you may recall, a month or so ago I put in a special order to Grishko in Moscow for a pair of customised shoes. I wanted the vamp to be entirely reshaped and the sides lowered to be more flattering on my foot and for easier roll through on demi-pointe. It was actually a relatively...

Her latest collection for AW13 is entitled Lace & Ballet. Needless to say, I was excited to see a collection combining my two of favourite things - underwear and ballet. It is inspired by elements of ballet such as tutus, ballet shoes and the overall drama of the artfrom. In the...

If you are overweight, and so not perhaps used to exercise, then ballet is ideal as it's very gentle on the body when you come in a beginner. It's only when you become much more advanced that you benefit from a stronger, leaner body. I'm not flexible at all Another common concern....

It was like a car crash in ballet shoes and it's ruining my enjoyment of my classes. So it would seem it's back to the drawing board. Maybe I just have freaky feet that no ballet shoe on the planet will fit. It's so bad I'm even considering trying Gaynor Mindens! Most likely though I 'll...
